Multi-tone Baltic Amber Necklace
The word amber is derived from Old Norse brísingr, a poetic term for "fire" or "amber" mentioned in the anonymous versified word-lists (þulur) appended to many manuscripts of the Prose Edda, making Brísingamen "gleaming torc", "sunny torc", or the like.
Amber was a valuable commodity that was used by Vikings to be carved into amulets, various pieces of jewellery, beads and spindle whorls.
Amber was collected from the Baltic sea and traded by Vikings all over Europe.
This necklace is made of genuine 30+ million year old Baltic amber pieces which have been highly polished giving center stage to the beautiful colours and textures within.
The pieces of amber range from dark amber to a solid beautiful amber and semi-transparent pieces. The handmade necklaces range between 50-55cm and the clasp camouflages with the pieces around it. It securely fastens with a twisting motion.
