Often found along Baltic shores, amber is the fossilized resin of prehistoric trees and is among the oldest and most prized materials in human adornment. 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.


Here, a flower is carved in the back of an amber cabochon using a small hand drill in a technique known as intaglio. Set in sterling silver bezels. Please allow for slight variations in each handcrafted piece.


Handcrafted in Gdynia, Poland. 1 3/8"L x 7/16"W.

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.
