Delicate slabs of millennia-old Baltic amber inlay these contemporary sterling silver pendant necklaces and pierced earrings. Stunning gifts or one-of-a-kind additions to your accessory wardrobe, the amber mosaic pendants feature contrasting patterns of inlay and are presented on different necklaces. The large horizontal mosaic pendant graces a black leather cord; the medium vertical mosaic pendant, a nylon-coated, six-strand neckwire. The pierced earrings match the vertical inlay of the medium mosaic pendant necklace. Sterling silver lobster claw clasps and leverbacks. As amber is a natural product, some variation in appearance should be expected.

Gem-quality Baltic amber, formed from conifer trees fossilized for 30 to 60 million years, is found along the southeastern shores of the Baltic Sea, especially near Gdansk, Poland, and the Russian exclave, Kaliningrad. Cognac, lemon and green are the most usual Baltic amber colors. Baltic amber in our National Gem and Mineral Collection, National Museum of Natural History, inspired this amber pendant necklace.
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.
