    General Information

    Amber bow

    The entire palette of amber shades is encompassed by the cubes of these earrings, whose color scheme is thus different for each pair. The cubes are pressed from amber scraps that are created during processing. Their expressiveness remains the same as that of whole natural amber - thus they are proof that even fossil resin can undergo upcycling. The pendants are made of 925 silver.

    Amber. The Gold of the North.

    Amber impressively demonstrates what a steep career a simple tree resin can have if given a little time. What dripped as the resin 50 million years ago from trunks in subtropical forests (that covered what is now Scandinavia), petrified afterwards and was finally admired as the “tears of the gods” by the Roman poet Ovid merely 2,000 years ago. In those days, the highly coveted “gold of the north” found its way from the Baltic to the Mediterranean on the “amber roads”. Resourceful traders sold the “combustible stone” (“Bernstein” in German, the Low German “bernen” means “to burn”) as fuel, incense substitute and exquisite gemstone. Indeed, when you consider that its applications range from rosaries and medieval medicine, which attributed healing powers to Baltic amber, to the lost Amber Room and the modern set gemstone, there is no other conclusion: The appreciation of the “tears of the gods” is unbroken. Another intriguing aspect of the natural substance: amber comes in numerous colour variations ranging from white to yellow and red to deep dark brown.
