A budding romance, this labor of love presents a stunning rose, hand-sculpted from cognac Baltic amber, atop an exceptionally detailed sterling silver stem with rose blossom and deeply veined leaves. Natural variations will occur with this Carved Baltic Amber Rose Brooch.
Our extraordinary collection of Baltic Amber Jewelry celebrates the splendid amber jewelry and specimens curated by our National Museum of Natural History. Entirely handcrafted by Polish and Lithuanian amber artisans, each piece is a work of art, unrivaled in craftsmanship, elegance, and style.
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.
