Baltic Cognac Amber Earrings

Baltic Amber originated as resin from trees in the vast forested landscapes of the Baltic.

The amber started to become solid and was taken by streams and rivers to the Baltic Sea. You can now find this beautiful stone  washed up along the coastlines there. Cognac amber is transparent and you can often see little inclusions of preserved plants, insects, water or gas bubbles inside it. The transparent nature of the gem and these inclusions give amber a wonderful depth. Amber has been cherished in various cultures and communities throughout time due to its warm vibrant appearance and the special meaning it has for people. We have selected this variety of amber because we love the stunning contrast between the warm fiery stone and the cool metallic lustre of the sterling silver.
