Enchantment Suspended. The essence of romance, the Amber Cascade Necklace gracefully suspends thirteen marquise-cut drops of genuine 12mm x 6mm gem quality Baltic amber from a simple ring pendant. The Amber Cascade Pierced Earrings echo the cascading pendant with five-slab cascades of 5mm gem-quality Baltic amber. Individually drilled at the top—to dangle like a charm, to catch and reflect the light—this Amber Cascade Necklace and Earrings ensemble is entirely handcrafted. Sterling silver necklace, rings and findings. Lobster claw clasp; post-style pierced earrings. Some natural variations will occur.

Commissioned by Prussia’s Frederick I, presented as a gift to Russia’s Peter the Great, and installed by Catherine the Great in her summer palace, the “Amber Room” was a testament to the enduring value placed upon this prized Baltic gem. The Smithsonian’s amber collection at the National Museum of National History, and the beautiful amber products on these pages, showcase the translucent beauty of Baltic amber and the skill of the Polish artisans who transform it.
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.
