  • Amber Artisans has the highest quality Baltic Amber Jewelry out there. I highly recommend them. I purchased Amber Jewelry from another stores and was not satisfied. Amber Artisans has the nicest and best priced Amber. Their quality far exceeds others and the customer service is excellent, thank you.

My daughter wears her Amber Necklace every day and loves it. Thank you so much for providing such a rare, beautiful and healing necklace for us.

  • I had a slightly custom request with my purchase for Men's 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. I will be doing business with Amber Artisans again soon!

  • The rep at Amber Artisans responded to my email very quickly. And I received the Amber Earrings 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.

  • Thank you so very much for the way you handled our order for Men's Beaded Necklaces. I wanted to let you know how truly thrilled I am about quality! I was naturally a little worried, ordering it online, without feeling or touching it first, but I am so completely impressed!
