Things You Should Absolutely Know About Amber Jewelry

Amber jewelry carries many amazing qualities but can be lesser known than other jewelry. Here are a few things you should absolutely know about amber jewelry.

Diamonds may be a girl's best friend, but they aren't the only gemstone that deserves recognition. Amber jewelry may be lesser-known, but it's a versatile and beautiful addition to any wardrobe.

 Amber Isn't a Stone.                          

It's an organic compound made from ancient hardened tree resin.

Trees use resin to protect themselves from insect or weather damage. Whenever there's a crack in the bark, a tree will ooze resin to seal the crack before permanent damage occurs.

The fossilized resin that we use today for amber jewelry was buried underground for millions of years, where it hardened into stone-like pieces. Today, most of the amber in the world is mined or collected from Europe, near the Baltic sea.

Amber is very lightweight, so it floats in saltwater. This means it often washes up on the shores of the Baltic sea and is easy to extract. It also makes it perfect for larger jewelry pieces. When you're wearing amber jewelry, you can choose large statement pieces all day without getting uncomfortable.

There's More Than One Color of Amber.

The most common amber pieces are a honey-brown color; there are eight different kinds of amber on the amber color scale. The rarest amber is green amber, which only makes up about 2% of the world's amber.
The older the amber is, the more likely it is to be a luminous dark orange.

Every color of amber makes a statement, from the warm earth tones to the brightest yellow. The more uneven surfaces there are inside the amber, the more light it will catch, which makes the gem seem to glow from the inside out.

Amber Jewelry Is Warm.

Unlike other gemstones, amber is warm to the touch. It will take on your body heat quickly, so wearing amber jewelry is comfortable from the moment it touches your skin.

Baltic Amber Is the Highest Quality Amber.

While fossilized tree resin is found all over the world, the highest quality amber comes from the land around the Baltic Sea. Baltic Amber is some of the oldest amber and it's also the most likely to have inclusions of preserved insects or plant matter. This makes it valuable as jewelry and to scientists for research.
