This beautiful set of earrings features a pattern of rare cherry amber stones with small beads of .925 sterling silver between them. The beads, and the amber stones are set on three strands of sterling silver, which flow down from sterling silver hooks.The deep mysterious nature of cherry amber contrasts beautifully against the luster of the sterling silver. The amber stones measure from 1/4" to 3/8" and their dark cherry color turns into a glowing red when they come into contact with light. Each piece of natural cherry amber was formed in the Baltic area of Russia. This part of the world is one of the finest producers of amber anywhere on earth. The cut of the stone suggests a more natural piece of jewelry, but the abundance of silver adds a touch of sophistication, and elegance to the piece of jewelry, making it truly versatile. These earrings would be a fantastic addition to any jewelry box.
