Utterly elegant, stylized teardrops of creamy butterscotch Baltic amber are set in ribbon silhouettes of sterling silver. Handmade by Polish amber artisans, the pendant of this Butterscotch Baltic Amber Teardrop Necklace is presented on a sterling silver snake chain. Natural variations will occur.
Sometimes called “the golden gem of the ages,” amber is often found in coastal areas—especially from the Baltic Sea where it is sometimes found on the shore after a storm. Since the Stone Age amber has been prized and revered by many cultures—for its beauty and for its supposed curative and magical powers. Amber—like the gems gracing this Butterscotch Baltic Amber Teardrop Jewelry—is curated by the Mineral Sciences Department at our National Museum of Natural History.
18"l. with 1.75"l. pendant.
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.
