Old Baltic Amber & Silver Necklace
An attractive necklace comprising 27 genuine amber beads (UV light & saline tested) weighing 44.8 g interspersed with silver beads and completed with 2 phenolic amber beads. The hues of the amber are gorgeous and combine beautifully to make this a very stylish and wearable necklace. Purchased in Morocco.
Please note: The amber is genuine, not faux amber or phenolic resin – this is genuine Baltic amber in various warm shades that was used for trading in Africa. It has been tested. Due to the nature of amber, the pieces are not uniform in size and exhibit natural imperfections as you would expect. These authenticate the amber and add to its charm.
27 x genuine amber beads, 2 x resin beads & silver beads
48.0 cm full length
