In the Pomeranian region of Poland, translucent amber is a traditional wedding gift. This natural gem, formed over millions of years from the fossilized resin of ancient trees, is shaped into beads and pendants and passed from generation to generation. As a bridal gift, it serves as an amulet of protection from harm. Sterling silver.

1"L.

Mined in Sicily, Burma, Romania, Poland, and Mexico, amber is actually the fossilized resin of ancient trees, and is among the oldest stones used for human adornment. It has been called the gold of the sea because the most extensive deposits are found along Baltic shores. The Greeks, to whom amber represented the tears Apollo shed as he was banished from Olympus, called amber "electron" because of its tendency to attract lightweight objects when rubbed.

    The National Geographic Catalog Photograph makes you think that these are good sized heart shaped earrings.........maybe 1/2 in. or slightly less. They are much smaller than that, so it is disappointing when they arrive.

      Comments about Baltic Amber Heart Earrings:

      The earrings are beautiful but when my wife tried to put them on, one of the silver wires that go through the ear broke. We have taken it to a jeweler and he has to pop the amber out to solder the silver piece back on. So be careful putting on the earrings. Other than that, they are really beautiful and go well with the amber neckless.

              Loosely packaged in a plain box. Should be packaged in a more standard earing box that hold each piece in place and present a better gift appearance.

                              In 1701, Prussian King Frederick I commissioned an ornate room made from tons of translucent Baltic amber. Later, the intricate panels passed into Russian hands, and Catherine the Great installed them in her summer home in Tsarskoye Selo (now Pushkin). They were looted during the German invasion of Russia in World War II, but disappeared in the aftermath of the war. Their location remains one of the art world's greatest mysteries. This captivating treasure engages the imagination, and you can carry a connection to this intriguing tale with you as a lightweight amber locket. Accented with sterling silver and carved by hand in Poland.

                              In Pomerania, a historical region that stretches between the contemporary borders of Poland and Germany, translucent amber is often found along the shores of the Baltic Sea. This organic gem is the fossilized resin of prehistoric trees and comes in a range of colors from moss green to honey gold to the translucent, rich brown that we most often associate with amber. Amber beads were a traditional wedding gift in Pomerania, where they are thought of as protective amulets.

                              Polish artisans have more than 80 names to describe types of amber, from flame and honey to clouded and woolly. Often found along the Baltic Sea, amber has been popular in jewelry for centuries. Here, teardrops of honey amber are paired with sterling silver leaves in earrings that reflect an early-20th-century art deco style.

Ancient Chinese lore tells that when tigers die, their souls become amber. In Old Norse tradition, amber symbolized the tears of the goddess of love.

                              According to Lithuanian legend, amber is the tears of the sea goddess, Jurate, who mourns her lover, the fisherman Kastytis. The thunder god, Perkunas, was enraged that a goddess fell in love with a mortal, and punished her by drowning Kastytis and destroying Jurate’s undersea amber palace, pieces of which are said to wash up on Baltic shores to this day. The story has been told in poems, ballets, and even a rock opera. Our necklace of Baltic amber slivers pays homage to this star-crossed romance.

                              Along the coastline of the Baltic Sea, winter storms cast up pieces of amber from the seabed. Locals gather it from the shore like seashells, and since this natural gem floats in saltwater, it can be scooped from the water’s surface with a net. These simple accents showcase amber’s translucence and toffee hue, framed in oxidized sterling silver.

                              Amber captivated ancient cultures long before its origins were understood. Some thought it was sunshine made solid. Others believed it was the fallen tears of the gods. It wasn’t until the Roman author Pliny wrote his Historia Naturalis in A.D. 77 that it was thought of as a plant material. As the fossilized resin of 40-million-year-old trees, amber is one of the only gems that isn’t a mineral. In Baltic cultures, it’s a traditional gift for a bride from her parents, and is passed down through generations of women. This necklace showcases smooth amber in a range of its natural, untreated hues, from milky honey white to opaque brown-black.

                              Charleston, South Carolina, is a veritable outdoor ironwork museum, with its pedestrian-friendly streets and a tradition of cast-iron and wrought-iron gates, fences, and balconies that date back to the early 18th century. British styles were the earliest to take hold in the city, but a local style soon evolved and gained national attention, with elements that were influenced by German ironworkers and the neoclassical design that was popular in architecture of the 19th century.
