This elegant Baltic amber necklace has some turquoise stones added, I just love this color combination, perfect summer wear!
The necklace is quite short, measuring 37 cm (14.5 inch) so it circles the top of the neck, and the turquoise stones are dangling on sterling silver wire from the center, perfect for a great neckline and elegant V-neck.
If you would like it slightly longer or shorter just convo me with the exact measurement needed, and I'll restring without extra costs as long as it stays under 2 additional inches.
All my pieces are unique, you will get exactly the item shown on the photo's.
Baltic amber is one of the oldest Amber in the world (40 million year), is light to wear, and always feels warm to touch. It is the perfect material for jewelry.
Amber is not a stone or mineral, but an organic substance created by the dripping of resin from certain pine trees(conifers of the family Sciadopityaceae), which was fossilized over a period of millions of years. I am using Baltic Amber only, dating back 40 million years.
Amber contains up to 8% of succinic acid. Succinic acid is also termed 'Spirit of amber', which in history was used for rheumatic aches and pains.
Succinic acid is also created as a byproduct of the fermentation of sugar, lending us the typical bitter-salty taste in beers and wines.
It is believed to slowly give off the acid by wearing the amber on the skin, and numb small pains, like teething pains of kids, and rheumatic aches.
All my items will be send with prioritized, registered mail, and arrive gift-wrapped.
