This gorgeous chunky amber pendant has a modernist setting designed especially to show off its beauty. The metal is sterling silver, unmarked. (It has been tested.) The craftsmanship is excellent. This pendant is a work of art. The amber has been coated with a black substance on the back. This gives the normal reddish brown color a golden tone and really adds to the reflective quality of the inclusions, which are many. The darkening of the back also adds the appearance of depth to the amber. The pendant really sparkles in the light. There is a solid, flexible sterling silver chain with a lobster clasp included. It is probably original to the pendant. The piece is not marked as to country of origin; it could be from any of the amber-producing countries around the Baltic Sea. The necklace is 18" long with the pendant hanging 2 1/8" down. It is 1 1/8" wide and 3/8" thick. It weighs 22.6 grams; almost all of this is the weight of the silver (amber will float in sea water, it is so lightweight). This pendant is in excellent original condition and is vintage but not antique, probably around 20-25 years old.
