WHY BUY FROM BOUTIQUEAMBER. - When making jewellery we use only natural Amber that originates from Baltic region. Baltic Amber is known to contain one of the highest quantities of Succinic Acid found in nature. Other types of Amber might have less of this acid or don’t contain it at all; - We use matching colour screw clasps (made from plastic) as a closure for jewellery. Screw clasps can’t be undone easily, which ensures that jewellery won’t be lost or taken off easily; - For most items BoutiqueAmber offers the possibility to choose different colours and lengths so you can be sure that you will be able to select jewellery that is suitable for you; - Each Amber bead in our jewellery is shaped carefully to create beautiful looking accessory and ensure that it is convenient to wear (no sharp edges). Beads are also knotted from both sides, which helps to avoid scattering; WHAT IS BALTIC AMBER. Amber is a fossilised tree resin, which was formed more than 40 million years ago. It is being classified as gemstone and made into a variety of decorative objects including jewellery. Due to the fact this gem was formed many years ago, it has a long history and it was appreciated by people since ancient times. They used it not only as a jewellery, but they also believed that Baltic Amber has protective and medical qualities. HOW DOES IT WORK. Based on today’s research the composition of Baltic Amber might contain from 3 to 8 % of Succinic Acid. Succinic Acid found in Baltic Amber has a lot of health benefits for human body. These benefits include boosting of immune system, pain relief (teething, arthritis and etc.), provide calming effect, reduce inflammation, improve function of heart & kidney, enhance wound healing and more. It is thought that wearing Amber Jewellery close to the skin might help to absorb the healing element in this gem – Succinic Acid.
