AMBER RINGS VALUE
Many factors influence the pricing of Baltic Amber Rings - color, weight and shape are some of obvious ones, but Amber is also priced according to its age, proportions, quality, and Amber Inclusions.
WHAT IS AMBER?
Baltic Amber is one of the oldest gems found in the earth's history (formed over 45 million years ago). Amber is actually made of fossilized tree resin. Resin is a fluid that oozes from certain type of trees, mainly coniferous, such as pine trees. This resin often had insects stuck in it and fossilized along with it. In fact, common inclusions in Amber are ants, mosquitoes and other living things, some of these long extinct! This makes Amber a great resource for scientists to explore ancient living things.
This beautiful gemstone is one of the oldest that has been used for jewelry (going all the way to 13,000 years back) famed for its golden hue and simple beauty.
Unlike most other gemstones, Baltic Amber has numerous uses. It has been used to make Jewelry, to remove lint from clothes (due to its static property), to make perfume and also in Folk Medicine.
THE PROPERTIES AND SELLING QUALITIES OF AMBER
There are four main qualities that Baltic Amber Jewelry manufacturers look for when it comes to purchasing Raw Baltic Amber.
Color is the most desired quality to examine when purchasing Baltic Amber. There are several different Colors of Amber. Most Amber comes in brown, yellow or orange hue. All different colors price differently due to their availability and their mining.
Once you've found the color you like, clarity comes next in the quality process. Amber is an interesting gemstone due to the nature of its origin. The tackiness of Amber aids in attracting particles and insects. Not all Amber contains particles and transparency make it more valuable.
The clarity and exclusion of particles add to the price of a piece of Baltic Amber. You are able to see the colors better and they appear richer.
Certain Insects or other organisms found in Amber, if rare, can lead to a rise in price and popularity. In order to be of true value, the insects must come from a prehistoric time and not an insect prevalent today. Assuring this is how you can stay away from fake pieces of Amber.
Just like any other stone, cut matters when it comes to a piece of Baltic Amber. Baltic Amber Necklaces or Amber Bracelets are most commonly made out of Amber Beads. Some designed with pieces with insects and others are completely clean.
Karat is a property to consider when purchasing your Baltic Amber. Amber comes in all sizes when it's mined. Finding larger pieces is going to prove difficult. Small pieces are easy to come.
WHY THE PRICES ARE SO DIFFERENT?
Bead's shape, color and weight is the most important factors in determining the Value of Baltic Amber Rings and other Baltic Amber Jewelry. Some Amber Beads are more highly polished/rounded requires more time to make. Also keep in mind that round beads are more expensive compared with other shapes because much material has to be removed (i.e., goes to waste) to create the shape.
Why Does My Baltic Amber Ring Look Different Than the Picture On The Website?
Baltic Amber we use in our Amber Jewelry are natural and come from the Earth. As the Earth evolves and changes, so does Baltic Amber. Due to this, the size, color and pattern (striations, mixing of colors, etc.) of the beads will vary from piece to piece.
Caring for your Baltic Amber Ring.
Baltic Amber is a fossil resin which formed under natural conditions 45 million years ago, so it is quite soft and somewhat fragile, so it requires gentle treatment. Avoid cleaning Baltic Amber Necklaces and other Baltic Amber Jewelry with abrasive jewelry cleaners or wearing it while being highly active.
To clean your Baltic Amber, use a soft flannel cloth dampened with clean lukewarm water. You should dry your Amber very carefully, lightly polish with clear olive oil and then remove any excess oil and restore the polish with another soft cloth. Avoid spraying Baltic Amber Necklace with hairspray or perfume, and apply these products sparingly where Amber could come into contact with them. As with other Jewelry, keep necklaces in their own compartment or wrap them in a cloth to prevent damage from harder jewelry as it rubs against the delicate Baltic Amber.
Regardless of your reason to wear Baltic Amber Rings, for natural beauty or natural healing, it can change your life in the best possible way.
