Known for quality

Amber jewelry we sell are not artificial, synthetic, reconstituted or substitute for Baltic amber.

Commercial value of amber is related to its scarcity, age, inclusions of extinct species and durability, valued much more than other immature recent resin, that yet has'nt fully fossilized compared to the prehistoric nature of true fossil amber. Young amber is worth only a small fraction of that. It ages usually only thousands of years old, instead of millions of years Baltic amber, that is why commonly used for imitations. Learn more
