Baltic Amber and Pearl Two-Strand Necklace in Honey and Bronze
This luscious two-strand necklace and matching earrings of genuine Baltic amber and freshwater pearls captures shades of honey and bronze. The colors are intensely rich, and as the gemstones capture the light, they seem to be molten, shifting in hue from caramel and gold to honey and bronze.
The necklace design incorporates genuine Baltic amber nuggets with lustrous bronze-colored freshwater pearls. Pearls provide the centerpiece of the necklace, separated by small gold-plate rondelles. I chose to alternate runs of pearls with amber nuggets because they complimented each other so well, and the combination of the two created such an intense color sensation. The amber beads are separated by golden seed beads, and gold-plate filigree beads separate the sections of amber from the sections of pearls. Runs of small gold-plated beads lead to the toggle, completing the necklace design.
The matching earrings feature two Baltic amber nuggets topped by a pearl. The earrings hang from French-style earwires and measure 1 ¾ inches from the piercing of the French-style ear wires. The shorter strand of the necklace measures 16 inches in length with the second strand measuring 18 ¼ inches, giving the necklace a lovely drape. Since ancient times, amber was considered a good luck gem and was often given as gifts by royalty. Pearls have traditionally been thought to assist in introspection as well as improving self-esteem. Pearls are also widely believed to symbolize purity and spiritual transformation. These wonderful qualities augment this lovely necklace and matching earrings. Wearing this luminescent demi parure will make you feel so very luxurious!
Please Note: The necklaces I create are my own designs. The gemstones I used to create this necklace are genuine and natural and as such there may be anomalies in shape, size, and color.
