Large Baltic Amber Earrings, Rowena Watson Designs
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 little insects and other natural matter 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 jewelleryand ornaments, as an ingredient in perfumes and has long been used in Folk Medicine for its healing properties.
