Large Carved Baltic Amber Pendant, Rowena Watson Designs
This gorgeous large piece of Baltic amber has been set in a very simple sterling silver pendant, leaving the amber to be the star of the show! The carving in the back of the natural resin gives a stunning bright image of a beautiful rose that looks like it has been captured inside the amber.
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.
