About Amber

Amber

Amber originates from tree resin. It is often mistakenly thought that it originates from tree sap. Because of the natural beauty and inclusions such as animal fossils, it has been popular with jewellers for many hundreds of years, infact historians believe it was used in the Neolithic period – some 13,000 years ago!

Amber is not just the brown-orange associated with the colour, it ranges from brown to pale yellow and can be either transparent or opaque.

Approximately 85% of the worlds Amber is found in the Baltic region – often washed up on the shores of Northern Europe, including the UK – but also mined, particularly in Russia, Poland, Germany and surrounding countries.

Rarer forms of Amber include the highly sought after fluorescent amber from Mexico, Dominican Amber (from  Santiago) and Delatynite from the Ukraine.

Despite its rarity, Amber is relatively inexpensive yet highly attractive.

Our Amber is sourced from all over the world and set in Sterling Silver Jewellery by skilled Silversmiths and Jewellers.
