The original vintage jewelry
Gorgeous honey gold amber was among the first natural creations to be prized and
valued for its precious beauty
When we talk about antiques, we’re usually referring to pieces inspired by the precious treasures of the last 500 years. We find ourselves impressed by items from the 16th century. And we should be. To us, that’s a long time. But to amber, it’s a wink. Amber laughs at timelines. Forget antique, this stuff is pure prehistoric gold.
This naturally golden beauty first sparkled in the sunshine over 40 million years ago. The world’s oldest natural “gem,” amber was among the first naturally-occurring materials to be prized for its precious beauty. In scientific terms, amber is the fossilized resin of ancient trees. It can be found along the shores (and at the bottom) of the icy Baltic Sea.
Now after 40 million years, the translucent honey-golden drops of smooth Baltic amber are finally ready to wear in our Drops of Amber Earrings. Set in elegant swirls of sterling silver, these earrings are in every sense of the word... timeless.
Only a small percentage of amber is beautiful enough to become jewelry. It isn’t easy to find and the highest quality nuggets from Scandinavia fetch as much as $1,000 a piece. But today, you can claim your own piece of prehistoric treasure for an exclusive Stauer price.
