What is Precious Metal?
A Precious Metal is a metal with rare metallic chemical element and due to that is of high economic value. Precious metals are less reactive than most elements, have high luster, and have higher melting points than other metals. Gold, Platinum and Silver are considered as p recious metals and used extensively in jewelry.

Gold
Gold is an extraordinary and rare precious metal, with an unmatched combination of chemical and physical properties. Gold is the most non-reactive of all metals and it does not oxidize under ordinary conditions. No other metal is as malleable as gold. Pure gold is very soft and pliable, and alloys of different other metals are combined with pure gold to enhance its durability and strength, as well as creating a blush in the gold’s appearance with different color tones. 24 karat is 100 % pure gold, and it is more expensive and less durable than gold that is alloyed with other metals.

Platinum
Platinum, an extremely rare and expensive metal, is a silvery gray precious metal often used for setting or mounting high quality diamonds and gemstones. Platinum is a strong, durable and dense metal which is valued for its white color and purity.

Silver
Pure silver is very soft metal with its lustrous white color. Silver is used as jewelry metal well before the development of white gold alloys, and before platinum could be isolated. It is normally stable in pure air and water but tarnishes when exposed to ozone, hydrogen sulfide or sulfur.

What is a Gemstone?
A Gemstone is a mineral or rock, which can be used in jewelry after cutting or faceting and polishing. Gemstones are diverse in their beauty and many gems are available in a stunning variety of colors. After a skilled cutting and polishing of a gem, full color and luster can be seen.

What is Baltic Amber?
Baltic Amber is a petrified tree resin from a family of coniferous trees. Amber Formation is really fascinating: heat, pressure, oxygen and light exposure are the contributing factor in creation of Baltic Amber and the most important factor is time. Amber is like a time capsule that lets us take a peek into the prehistoric times, tree resin would trap everything it touched before it had a chance to harden. Amber is the only stone that is not cold to touch and is very light in weight.

Is your Baltic Amber natural?
Yes. We sell 100% natural Baltic Amber. All our Amber Jewelry is carved of natural and ONLY Baltic Amber chunks. Depending on a piece, it does undergo certain treatment (heating, autoclaving, polishing, etc.) which has been in practice in Amber Jewelry Making for centuries.

Why does my amber jewelry look different than the picture on the website?
Baltic Amber we use in our jewelry are natural and come from the Earth. As the Earth evolves and changes, so does Baltic Amber. Due to this, the size, color and pattern (striations, mixing of colors, etc.) of the beads will vary from piece to piece.

Why the prices are so different?
Beads shape, color and weight is the most important factors in determining the Value of Amber Jewelry. Some Amber Beads are more highly polished/rounded requires more time to make. Also keep in mind that round beads are more expensive compared with other shapes because much material has to be removed (i.e., goes to waste) to create the shape.

How do I care for my amber?
Regular cleaning of Amber Jewelry is essential to maintain shine and brilliance of amber. On wearing them, they get dirty as you use various skin and body care regimen such as soaps, lotions and even our skins natural oils. Even when you are not wearing them, they collect dust. You can clean your amber at home by your own by using soft brush, water and soap or by using readymade jewelry cleaners. You can also take services of a professional jeweler, where he will check security of the settings also. Amber jewelry should be stored individually in a soft cloth pouch to ensure that a gemstone should not scratch other gemstones or other jewelry. You should not wear amber jewelry while doing heavy work. You should avoid the situation where your ambers come in contact with chlorine bleach, hair spray or other chemicals because they can pit or discolor the mounting.
