Bask in Legendary Beauty. Like the romantic allusion to the “princely gift” of amber jewelry in Homer’s Odyssey, our exclusive Graduated Amber Necklace epitomizes understated elegance. Beaded with gleaming Baltic amber ovals—many with prized inclusions—it recalls Lithuanian amber necklaces in our National Gem Collection. Hand-knotted. Amber barrel-screw clasp. Natural variations will occur. 22"l.
Did you know that amber has been collected from the shores and seabed of the Baltic Sea for nearly 6,000 years? That its translucent glow and supposed powers of healing are as prized today as they were in ancient times? Enchant today’s woman with trendy yet timeless amber jewelry from our new and exclusive collection—all exquisitely crafted and all inspired by the extraordinary amber holdings of our National Museum of Natural History.
Every Smithsonian purchase will arrive with a museum provenance card explaining how it is adapted from or inspired by an object or objects in our collection.
