Prehistoric Amber Earrings

$330.00
About Details Inspiration

Amber is a fossilized tree resin that's been used in jewelry since Neolithic times.  This particular amber, in fact, dates from way BEFORE the stone age - it's estimated to be from the Eocene period, so those tiny insects you see trapped in there?  They are forty-four million years old.  Each oblong is carefully custom-fit with a band of gold that hugs it perfectly, letting in maximum light to display the preserved specimen.  Amber glows orange when the suns' rays filter through it, which fascinated our stone-age ancestors.  Now, in the digital age, it's still blowing our minds.
