Amber has a long history in Pomerania, the parts of present-day Germany and Poland that border the Baltic Sea. It can still be found along beaches there, or be scooped out of the ocean as it floats along the waves. Pomeranian brides were often given amber beads as wedding gifts, because they were believed to be protective amulets. These hoop earrings feature authentic amber beads in alternating shades of honey and citrine, paired with sterling silver spacers. Because natural amber is so lightweight, they’re perfect for sensitive ears.
