Amber and Silver Jewelry – A Welcome Accessory to any one’s Jewelry Wardrobe

Amber is available in colors of bright yellow to gold, and even green all blending beautifully with silver to make gorgeous jewelry!

It is not a precious jewel, like emerald, diamond, sapphire or ruby, but the effect is the same. Amber is actually fossilized tree sap!

Although amber is an ancient compound, and has been worn since antiquity it makes beautiful and gorgeous contemporary jewelry . There is something mysterious in the face of an amber product, everyone different.

Silver is timeless and precious – and the blend of the two natural products is gorgeous. And I love wearing silver jewelry because it is beautiful and yet more inexpensive than gold.

Multicolor Amber and Sterling Silver Mosaic Ring

I really love this ring because it shows three beautiful colors of amber.
The stone is natural.
The ring is designed well and constructed well.

Amber is Fossilized Tree Sap

The beautiful jewel that makes up our amber jewelry is actually fossilized tree resins. As the sap hardened, impurities were captured in the mixture. Some render it useless for jewelry, but others add great beauty, such as pyrites which add blue color and little bubbles causing so-called “bony amber.”

Amber and Silver Rings: Traditional Honey Amber and Yellow Gold Amber

Beautiful Amber and Silver Rings in Autumn Colors

Lovely Cognac, Olive and Lemon Yellow Colors – Like the Leaves in Fall!

Green, cherry red and lemon yellow are alternative colors of amber. I loved the beautiful autumn like colors of the natural amber here, set off by the simple and elaborate silver settings.

Amber is not calculated in carats, like precious gems. It is instead valued in grams. Usually the market value of amber and silver is similar, your item cost will depend on the elements weights.

The Amber Road

The Amber Road was created as an ancient trade route to move amber from the coasts of the North Sea and the Baltic Sea to the Mediterranean Sea.
Amber is extremely important to the history of that area.
Amber was called the “gold of the north.”

The trade routes between Northern and Southern Europe existed because of the amber trade. Amber was transported from the North Sea and Baltic Sea coasts overland by way of the Vistula and Dnieper rivers to Italy, Greece, the Black Sea, Syria and Egypt over a period of thousands of years.

Amber and Silver Necklaces

Lovely amber and silver necklaces for your lady’s neck. I love the dragonfly, which gives a nod to amber’s natural origins. These are beautiful yellow, amber and light green colors. Most of them come with an 18 inch chain.

Each of these necklaces is meaningful as well as beautiful. The dragonfly represents self realization and a deeper understanding of life. There is beautiful dragonfly jewelry that celebrates that.

This is a lovely necklace that is perfect for St. Patrick’s Day. This is not a flimsy throw-away piece of jewelry, but is instead something you can be proud of all year round. The shamrock grows profusely in Ireland and was St. Patrick’s attempt to symbolize the Holy Trinity. All three colors of amber are beautifully shown in this piece of jewelry, including Irish green.

I love beautiful jewelry of all kind, and around St. Patrick’s Day or any day you can also express love for your Irish sweetheart with a Irish Claddagh rings, especially if they feature your birthstone.

Original Jurassic Park Video – Mosquitoes in Amber

Amber was brought to the eye of the public with the release of the movie Jurassic Park. Could it really be that the DNA of mosquitoes trapped in ancient amber was the key to cloning dinosaurs in modern times?

Earring and Pendant Sets

It is even more fun to have a complete set of matching amber jewelry. I found so many quality silver and amber jewelry sets, including Claddagh Jewelry Sets which are a particular favorite of me. The Claddagh symbol is romantic and meaningful, and it is just so beautiful in amber.

Amber and Silver Bracelets

I love wearing bracelets and giving them as gifts because they are easier to size than rings. I enjoyed finding so many bracelets that featured multi-colored stones, as well as unusual designs like the antique design.

Amber Origin Myths – Tears of the Goddess

Ancient people were fascinated by the gems around them. Almost every culture has myths for their origin.

Because amber is so often tear-shaped – many of the legends about the origin feature tears of the gods.

In Sophocles’ (5th century BC) tragedy – when the hero Meleager dies, his mourners tears become amber.

But my favorite is the Lithuanian legend of Jūratė and Kastytis. – Jurate was a very powerful sea goddess who lived underwater in an amazing amber castle. Kastitis was a super fisherman who caught so many fish that Jurate decides to punish him. Instead she fell in love with him.

However, it is destined to be a doomed love, as so many are.

The thunder god Perkunas is infuriated that the goddess and a mere mortal are in love, so in an act of fury he strikes the amber castle and it explodes in a million pieces.

The pieces of the amber castle floated up to the shores of the Baltic sea. That is how the Baltic people first got their amber.

Kastitis was killed by Perkunas. His goddess lover Jurate mourns him to this day.

And her tears become the amber we find today.
