About 40 million years ago, the translucent amber in this earthy necklace was pine resin flowing within trees along the shores of present-day Poland. There, in the region of Pomerania, amber beads are handed down through generations and are considered amulets against harm. A Polish artisan gathers these authentic fossilized gems, frames them in sterling silver, and pairs them with a sinuous snake chain.

18"L. Pendant: 1 1/4"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.

              Comments about Tricolor Baltic Amber Necklace:

              I brought this necklace as a gift for my wife, who is from Poland. She liked it: one because it is from the Baltic sea, and two it could be worn in most settings.

              The necklace was what I expected it to be. It was made really well. I would recommend it ask a gift it you are in the market for an affordable and thoughtful gift.

                    Very disappointed! Necklace was cheap, already tarnished and had no appearance of real silver. There is no quality in all the pieces my husband purchased for me. I suggested National Geographic Society, but what a disppointment! We had to return all three pieces.
