Amber Jewelry Information

If you’ve been noticing the huge upward trend in owning a piece of precious Amber Jewelry you probably already know the value of Baltic Amber. Talk about “treasures”! Over 45 million years old and containing tiny Inclusions of Insects and plant life from that period in time is nothing short of the most valuable collection in the world from a scientific standpoint. Of course we owe the continuing upward visibility and demand for natural Amber to some extent to the Internet. With some Baltic Amber available at very reasonable prices, we can expect the surge to continue for some time.

So, if you’re now thinking you might be in the market for Amber Jewelry, you should read about what the real deal is…

What Amber Jewelry to Buy?

First time buyer? Keep it simple! Select a Amber Necklace or Amber Bracelet and choose from the many colors beautifully captured in Amber. Purchase your Amber Jewelry (and most importantly make certain you are buying the real deal) and then you can get comfortable with the beauty of what you own first. Should you decide to expand your collection over time, again be certain to enhance your treasure trove with only Genuine Baltic Amber as the value will grow and be retained.

What Is Amber?

Formed over 45 million years ago, Baltic Amber (succinite) is an organic substance, a Fossil Resin produced by pine trees. The climate became warmer and trees started to exude big amounts of resin. In spite of the many processes, which the resin went through to transform into Amber, it remains in the fossil stage, i.e. is subject to oxidising and polimerisation. Since this process is ongoing, Amber keeps changing so we can assume that it is a “living” stone, friendly to humans.

Amber is light, its density is comparable to that of seawater and ranges from 0.96 to 1.096 g/cm 3. This is a key practical benefit, because it means that large Amber Jewelry can be easily made and comfortably worn.

Raw Amber comes in diverse forms drops, icicles, dripstones and nuggets of various sizes, which show how it was formed and how it travelled.

Where Does Baltic Amber Come From?

The largest (and probably the most famous) deposits of amber are found in the Baltic region. In fact, these deposits represent approximately 80% of the world’s known Amber. Natural Baltic Amber can be scientifically dated between 35 and 45 million years old - No wonder it is one of the most precious substances in the world! And it certainly one of the most treasured gems, fashioned and refashioned into countless items in countless ways from amulets to jewelry to household items to great walls of artwork. The magic and mystery of amber lives on. Grading Amber Jewelry

Baltic Amber is considered the highest quality in the world and Amber's value is chiefly determined by its color, clarity, and the size of the nugget. Some collectors also place a higher value on pieces that have Inclusions Inside Amber.

Color

In general, the most valuable Color of Amber is rich yellow. A deep cherry red amber from ancient conifers also commands a high price and is relatively rare.

To give you a better idea about what is going on with prices, for instance, Perfectly Round Baltic Amber Butterscotch Beads command high prices. For instance, 10-15 mm natural Baltic Amber Beads in diameter are approx. $13-15 per gram. Smaller beads cost a bit less and larger ones more.

Clarity

Clear amber is more valuable than pieces that look cloudy or opaque.

Inclusions

Baltic Amber is unique among gems for its ability to contain other once-living things within it.

Nowadays the market is full of so-called "reconstructed, or "modified" amber, when an amber bead is made out of several small pieces of amber glued together. Natural Baltic Amber means that the piece of Amber Jewelry or a bead is carved out of one piece of Amber.

If you need Amber Jewelry for healing purposes, make sure that you buy Baltic Amber as it has the highest concentration of the Succinic Acid. It can be polished or not. Polishing does not alter the healing properties of Amber. All polished Amber are treated with heat, pressure, humidity, etc. The treatment makes the beads more appealing and pretty. Treated amber is still natural and, of course, real. Baltic Amber has been treated in different ways for hundreds of years. Amber often reveals its full beauty only after treatment.

Amber Jewelry is a favorite for many. By learning some Baltic Amber basics, you will be well prepared to find a beautiful Amber Jewelry and have fun doing it. Learn more how to choose and Buy Amber Jewelry Online.

  • I'm thankful that I was home today when the USPS carrier rang my door bell and asked for the required signature confirming successful package delivery. The parcel arrived in perfect condition; I thought the bow wrapped inner box was a lovely touch! The cognac Amber Bracelets and matching Amber Necklaces are beautiful and because we're having a sunny day here in Austin, Texas, I've placed all of the Amber Jewelry outside to absorb some of this marvelous sunshine; I've heard that amber is sometimes called the Tears of the Sun. Also, I find it interesting that people* who can see the human auric field, say that it's one of only a few substances that strengthens and makes brighter the subtle energy body. The 3 bonus gifts: multicolored amber ring, cognac heart pendant, raw amber. Are very much appreciated!

  • Your account records can verify that I'm am a repeat client from the USA and have always been pleased with the quality of your jewelry products and customer service. The amber barrel-clasps on the necklaces have never broken or failed and are easy to fasten by using feel of touch alone, which is a big plus for the very elderly; while the strands of individually knotted, pebble-like, beads of polished Amber that compose the necklaces, have held firm and remained shiny and beautiful throughout years of continuous wear and are making many of my close friends very happy.

  • I had done weeks of extensive research, and ended up ordering a total of 6 items over three separate orders. This is a family owned company with excellent customer service and workmanship. Over the 3 month period I was ordering Amber Jewelry, they continually updated their website to be more extensive and user friendly. They are flexible and communicate promptly and professionally. They also want you to know that your Baltic Amber Jewelery is authentic, so they send extra beads and explain how to test them for authenticity. They also provide extensive information about the history and uses for their product. I have truly enjoyed doing business w/them as well. They guarantee your satisfaction and accept returns and exchanges. I wish there were more small, artisan-type stores like this. I definitely recommend them for quality, customer service and overall value.

  • I received my Amber Necklaces in about 10 working days, coming all the way from Lithuania! It's hard to get US merchandise that quick. The experience with this company was fantastic. Everything they said about their product is true. I love the necklaces...they are beautiful Amber and of great quality. I received confirmation on purchase and shipping right away and was not concerned with credit card info since they use paypal. All in all this is a great company and I will purchase from them again and again.

  • I had a slightly custom request with my purchase for Mens Beaded Bracelet and they more than graciously accomodated 100%. My order came, and was perfect and absolutely gorgeous. It is clear that they took care to not only make a quality product but to also make it a personal work of art. They should be proud. I will be doing business with Amber Artisans again soon! Thank you very much!

  • The rep at "Amber Artisans" responded to my email very quickly. And I received the Amber Necklaces shortly thereafter.I knew I was ordering from a company overseas and that was my main concern that the company was legitimate.So receiving an email that quickly was comforting.Thank you.

  • I am very pleased with our new Amber Necklaces. The craftsmanship is exceptional! The necklaces are beautiful and I feel safe with the attention to detail in the design. The clasp is easy to use and the individual stringing is peace of mind for my baby's necklace. She was cutting her two top teeth and miserable. I am not sure of the effects as of yet, since it is day two. It does take some time to recieve them as they are coming from Lithuania., so be patient.Thank you!

I believe you have truly set the bar very high for having a "quality experience” with purchasing such an important item on the Internet. I am wearing mine everywhere and my little bundle of joy is wearing his.”
