Baltic Amber Earrings

This great pair of earrings with its floral design features a beautiful color scheme of cognac and citrine amber complemented by sterling silver.  Amber is one of the lightest gemstones, so this pair of earrings is great for someone who wants a light feel with a natural stone.

Prized since the Stone Age, treasured by ancient civilizations and coveted by 18th- and 19th-century European monarchs, amber (particularly 40,000-50,000 year-old Baltic amber) is still highly valued for its natural translucence. A glowing organic gemstone (naturally occurring in various shades of brown, yellow, or green), amber is actually the fossilized resin of prehistoric trees. Natural inclusions such as plant life or insects increase its worth.
