NEW ARRIVAL

ADORE - handmade from BURMITE AMBER and Sterling Silver.

This gorgeous material is around 100 million years old and is the fossilised remains of what was once a sticky substance secreted by trees to protect themselves from pests and predators.

This particular piece has a tiny fly-like insect embedded in the resin - difficult to see with the eye, so we have taken a magnified photo to show what it looks like.

Burmite has been used by the Chinese to make jewellery since around 200BCE. They believe that it is a symbol of courage and bravery and that it contains the soul of a tiger. 

Look at the photos and watch the brief video - this is a striking piece of jewellery that looks fabulous worn. We purchased this piece of amber in Burma and have created a pendant that highlights and showcases this rare and beautiful material.

ONE ONLY.
