These Baltic amber earrings are evoking the extravagance of the 18th and 19th centuries. This specific piece of Russian jewelry features Baltic amber, freshwater pearls, and Bukhara link details.
The combination of materials is symbolic of a time when these two resources were abundant in Russia, with the Baltic Sea supplying amber, otherwise known as "sunstone," and the northern regions of the country providing freshwater pearls. Believed to bring health and happiness to its wearer, Baltic amber has long been highly valued.
Material: gilded silver and amber, suspended on hooks
