Amber Dominates at John S Brana

In a nod to one of only five gemstones considered to be Organic...the latest collection at John S. Brana salutes Amber!

"Though it is no more than the fossilized resin of ancient and long extinct trees, amber has been treasured as a gemstone since the sunsets of prehistoric time.  In our modern, scientific world it serves as a miniature time machine, taking us 25 to 50 million years into the past to share the stories of its captured creatures.  Amber is warm, calm and helps to establish balance in the temperament of its wearer. It represents longevity, and as it has been found near burial grounds dating back to 8000 B.C., it may also be the oldest organic material humans have used for adornment."

Nature's beauty inspires these shimmering rich honey hue Amber earrings. 14K Gold-filled spirals are hand-wrapped with faceted Amber beads, creating elegant earrings that burst with honey-color glow.
  • Measures approximately 3" L x 2" W
