Avi's stunning necklace is hand-strung with irregularly-shaped amber and sterling silver beads and features a hand-forged pendant accented with a genuine golden amber cabochon. Amber, highly appraised for its warm, golden hues and gemstone qualities, is not actually a stone at all. Found in areas surrounding the Baltic Sea, the rare fossilized tree resin from over 45 million years ago is collected and polished to a smooth finish. Amber is said to be used for its therapeutic healing and relaxing fragrance when held in the palm of your hand. No two necklaces will be exactly alike. Each beaded amber necklace measures 16.25 inches long with a 1 inch long pendant. Lobster clasp. Handcrafted exclusively for Uno Alla Volta, from the heart and hands of the artisan.
