Amber Jewelry - what first time buyer need to know

Amber Jewelry - what first time buyer need to know

When it comes to jewelry, there are refined pieces and all natural ones. Amber Jewelry definitely falls into the natural beauty category. Since ancient time human beings have adorned themselves with Amber Jewelry for the same reasons people all over the world still do today.

A powerful healing stone for some, a window into the past for others and the Science of the future, natural Baltic Amber is the most beautiful and most amazing living gemstone for all.

Over 45 million years ago, Amber began as a resin created from the great trees of a forest that was coming to end. In spite of the many processes which occurred, transforming resin into Amber, it remains in the fossil stage. That is, Amber is subject to oxidizing and polimerization. Since this process is ongoing, Amber continues changing in keeping with our recognition of amber as a “living” stone, friendly to humans.

The wood of the tree and its Amber resin share coloration, vibrance and unique striations. So much so that it is barely discernable where the Amber begins and the wood ends. What is most remarkable is that natural Baltic Amber is a legend that lives and breathes today. Amber is sought after by the rich and powerful of many countries to enhance their precious Baltic Amber collections – and yet there are a handful of amber artisans in Lithuania who capture this precious living gem creating magical, Amber Necklaces and Amber Bracelets can be purchased for a price that almost anyone can afford.

So what are the critical factors in buying and collecting Natural Amber Jewelry? The most important rule is to find the genuine product. Research those who market genuine Baltic Amber from the Baltic Sea region. There are many replications of Amber and its cousins are simply not worth the investment at any price.

Amber's value is chiefly determined by its color, clarity, and the size of the nugget. Inclusions in Amber are not considered a flaw and may be seen as an asset, especially if they are of recognizable fauna.

Whether you're searching for your first piece of Amber Jewelry, or second piece, or you are merely a lover of fine things, Beautiful Amber is at its absolute best when combined with natural elements.

Natural Baltic Amber is unparalleled in its elegance and makes an exceptional fine jewelry accessory, Amber is so much more. While other jewelry is rare and precious, it is made of metal or mineral; Amber is alive. Amber radiates beauty with many different and distinct colors choices that can be clear or opaque. The Amber Colors can be combined together or done in a single pattern to create a rich and regal design.

Jewelry can usually last hundreds of years. Amber Jewelry is no exception and it can be a great inheritance for the generations to come. There is only one thing you should do: keep them in perfect storage conditions. Because the stone is very soft it’s easier to scratch or chip than other precious stones, like diamonds. So, you should keep your Ambler Jewelry wrapped in a soft cloth. Each piece of jewelry has to be wrapped in a different cloth because, if you put them together, they might rub one against another and get their shiny surface destroyed.

Baltic Amber is soft and fragile, so it requires gentle treatment. Avoid cleaning Amber Jewelry with abrasive jewelry cleaners or wearing it while being highly active. To clean Amber, rub it with a soft cloth. Avoid spraying Amber Jewelry with hairspray or perfume, and apply these products sparingly where Amber could come into contact with them. Learn more about caring for your precious Amber Jewelry.

Even though Baltic Amber is simply beautiful as an object, and one of the most versatile gemstones for use in jewelry, you will find that it is also the history, mythology, science Amber contains that makes it even more exotic & sought after.

  • 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!

  • "Thank you so very much for the way you handled our order for Mother and Baby Amber Teething Necklaces. I wanted to let you know how truly thrilled I am about their quality! I was naturally a little worried, ordering it online, without feeling or touching it first.....but I am so completely impressed! 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.”
