Amber Necklace Review and Giveaway

Recently I got an offer to do a review and giveaway from a small company called Spark of Amber.  I was excited–I love supporting small businesses—and the Amber necklace they sent me is beautiful!  Amber Necklace

Amber is a fossilized tree resin that has been prized since prehistoric times for its depth and beauty. It is used in jewelry and decorative items and was once even treated as currency in trade. My grandparents came from Denmark where amber is well-loved, and I grew up admiring my mother’s amber jewelry, and often giving amber gifts.

Amber even had its 15 minutes of (big) fame in the movie Jurassic Park where  scientists extracted dinosaur DNA preserved in amber, then cloned it to create dinosaurs.     Amber Necklace

Although I was already familiar with amber, this amber necklace held some surprises for me.  Each bead was uniquely beautiful and the colors were distinct and varied!  (And yes, I did peer into a few beads to see if I could see fossils.)  I had picked out a multi-color necklace since I wear a lot of warm tones, and was impressed with how great it looks with plain white as well.  And I could easily see how someone might want an additional amber necklace or two in other colors as well (alright, I do).

 The other surprising thing I learned researching this is that amber has been valued in both folk medicine and alternative medicine circles.  Some people feel that the oils in the necklace are anti-inflammatory—hmm, I have a sore “book-bag” shoulder right now… Amber Necklace

The company has been in business since 2013.  Owner Julie says, “A mom of three, I was introduced to Baltic Amber through a friend while looking for a necklace for my youngest daughter. I was captivated by the beauty of Baltic Amber. Once I started looking, I was hooked.”

Spark of Amber sources the finest amber from Lithuania and the Baltic region. They offer a variety of styles, free shipping and do custom work. Yes, I think I’m going back for a Mother’s Day bracelet next year!
