At House of Amber we create jewellery from amber of the very finest quality, carefully selected and uniquely designed, and often set with gold, silver and diamonds. In fact, only 10% of the world’s amber meets House of Amber’s exacting standards.
In the hand of our skilled goldsmiths, jewellery of both classic and modern design is created.
If the amber has been manufactured professionally and correctly – as it is at House of Amber – then quality is a matter of individual taste and preference.
Pressed amber is manmade. Many small pieces of amber are heated and pressed together under high pressure. Press amber is not considered genuine amber.
Yes. Sun, light and air oxidise amber. Transparent amber becomes lighter over the years, whereas opaque amber becomes darker.
Amber jewellery is wonderful to wear, but must be treated with a little care. It must not be exposed to alcohol. E.g. Perfume, hairspray etc. Amber may be washed in a little lukewarm water with a small amount of washing up liquid. Afterwards the amber should be treated with linseed oil and polished gently with chamois leather.
Bring it to House of Amber for polishing in order to get the best result.
