Amber drop earrings inspired by Viking jewellery.
Amber is fossilized tree resin commonly found in the Baltic regions. The gemstone has been appreciated for its colour and natural beauty since Neolithic times. Amber was worn by the Vikings in simple shapes in a variety of decorative motifs, especially the Thor's Hammer.
These earrings form part of a special range to accompany the Vikings exhibition from Amber Hall - a Polish design studio that specialises in bespoke amber jewellery. Each piece is hand-crafted by Polish artisans using amber in its various colours and forms.
The earrings are ideal as a culturally-inspired gift.
More about amber
Amber occurs in a range of different colours, three of which are represented within this range, from yellow, to green shades, although amber itself can range from a whitish colour through a pale lemon yellow, to brown and almost black.
Because it originates as a soft, sticky tree resin, amber sometimes contains animal and plant material as inclusions.
