Amber Pendants – always a great addition to your amber jewelry collection. Amber pendants are the most versatile and popular piece of jewelry. Always easy to match with amber earrings or amber bracelets and are a pefect finishing touch to any outfit.
Amber pendants are part of amber jewelry category. They are made of amber, which is a yellow, sometimes reddish or brownish, fossil resin of organic origin. Amber is a translucent brittle material used for making beautiful jewelry or other ornamental objects. People started making first amber pendants in Stone Age. They would drill a hole in a piece of amber, slip a cord and wear it around the neck. First amber pendants were worn as amulets for luck and protection. People believed in magical and healing powers of amber thus amber pendants became a “must have” accessory for hunters in prehistoric times.
In Ancient Rome amber was still believed to have protective powers but people mostly wore it for decorative purposes as jewelry. Nowadays people choose amber pendants mostly for adornment since amber jewelry easily fits any style, whether contemporary or classic.
Amber pendants made by today’s jewelers come in hundreds of styles, shapes, sizes and colors. The most popular amber colours are: cognac, green, cherry, honey and milky.
Amber pendants can be very simple like an unpolished piece of amber with a finding to attach to a chain or very sophisticated featuring multiple colours, pieces and shapes combined together. Some amber pendants are true works of art. Very often jewelers combine amber with precious metals like silver or gold. Depending on the size of piece of amber used to make a pendant and amount of silver or gold the price range can be very wide, however amber pendants are usually very affordable.
