Description

This set consists of a stunning amber necklace and a pair of amber earrings. The necklace is made of 26 graduated pieces of amber of different colours and an extra, larger dangler in the centre. The dangler is 2.7cm long, the largest pieces just above it are 2cm long, and the smallest near the catch are 1cm long. The diffeent coloured amber pieces have been symmetrically arranged, as well as could be achieved, so that one colour on one side matches the colour on the other side of the necklace. The pieces of amber are set in gold wire, which is not marked, but tests as 14 carat. There is no flat surface anywhere where you could put a stamp. The necklace is 59cm long, and the catch is a simple hook and loop fastener. The earrings are 2cm long, and the stones don’t quite match each other, but both match the necklace. This set is probably of Russian origin, because it came as a job lot together with a silver amber pendant with Russian hallmarks (also for sale on this website). Because this is natural amber, there are the odd flaws and irrgeularities in the stones, which serve to establish that this is a natural product and not a synthetic immitation. It is an absolutely beautiful set, that any lady should be proud to wear.
