The beauty of genuine ancient amber is literally 'captured' here in cages of sterling silver.
This modernist oval-shaped set includes the pendant with seven rows of amber lozenges in various colors from lemon to cherry red. Each piece of amber has inclusions that reflect the light. The three rows in the center rotate so that you can spin them to show the silver band that holds them or not.
The pendant measures 7/8 inch across by 2 3/4 inches high. It hangs from a sterling silver chain that measures 19 inches around. The clasp is marked 925 - 1974 AR.
The matching earrings for pierced ears also have revolving amber stones. The earrings measure 3/8 inch across by 2 inches high and are also marked 925 for sterling.
The set is in excellent condition. Circa 1970s, Italy.
