Huge Baltic Amber Earrings, Rowena Watson Designs

Regular price $430.00 Sale

Two gorgeous large pieces of Baltic amber finished with simple sterling silver findings make for a set of earrings that are dramatic in size but lovely and subtle in colour. The translucence of the amber allows you to see the tiny little insects that are trapped within, frozen in time. Such rare finds. While the earrings are large, they are lovely and light to wear.

Formed over 45 million years ago, Baltic Amber is an organic substance, a “fossil resin” produced by pine trees which grew in Northern Europe. Baltic Amber has been used since ancient times, making Amber jewellery and ornaments, as an ingredient in perfumes and has long been used in Folk Medicine for its healing properties.
