Amber and ebony wood bead necklace

Amber and ebony wood bead necklace

Regular price £760.00

A beautiful necklace comprising 5 large genuine natural amber pieces interspersed with ebony wood beads with aluminium inlay. The colouration of each chunky amber piece is beautiful. There is a crack in one of the amber pieces (see photo) as is often the case in such ancient elements, but the piece is robust. This attests to its authenticity. A stunning stylish necklace that slips over the head. There is no clasp.

Please note: The amber is genuine, not faux amber or phenolic resin – this is genuine Baltic amber in various warm shades that was used for trading in Africa. It has been tested. Due to the nature of amber, the pieces are not uniform in size and exhibit natural imperfections as you would expect. These authenticate the amber and add to its charm.
