Avi Soffer's stunning oval earrings feature hand-forged sterling silver accented with genuine golden amber cabochons. 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 earrings will be exactly alike. Each pair of oval amber earrings measures 1.5 inches long. Wires. Handcrafted exclusively for Uno Alla Volta, from the heart and hands of the artisan.
