These dainty Lepidotera are fashioned from genuine cognac Baltic amber, which has been painstakingly hand-etched and heated by Polish artisans to create their unique “markings.” The pendant can be worn suspended from one wing, or both. Sterling silver settings, findings and snake chain. Natural variations will occur with this Baltic Amber Butterfly Necklace and Earrings.

Reminiscent of amber jewelry in our costume collections.
Necklace, 18"l. with 1.25"w. x 0.75"h. pendant; Pierced Earrings, 1.25"w. x 0.75"h.
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.

"It looks gorgeous and I was happy for two days, but... one wing fell from my necklace on the second day I was wearing this necklace. I did not noticed it until I got home. Now it is useless and just sitting in my jewelry box."

"I received exactly what was advertised. In the future I will read more closely the description of the item. The butterfly is tiny. The chain is to short. Read the description!"

"I don't normally write reviews, but I was so pleased with the set I wanted to rave about it. The workmanship is great, I didn't realize that the details of the amber wings were carved out, they're not just on the surface, and it's pretty amazing. I'm glad I bought these."
