About amber

Rediscover amber: modern amber jewelry from Lithuania

Amber, long considered Lithuania’s gold, is of significant value, having formed over thousands of years – in the depths of the sea. This mineral, created from fossilized pine resins, can be found in the Baltic sea and may be as old as 40-60 million years.

Historically, amber was often seen as a luxury item, especially in Eastern countries where it was more valuable than silver and gold combined. Due to the special characteristics of the Baltic sea to cast amber on shore, it was/ became easy to access, but still very unique. Today, amber is being rediscovered and given new life.

The uniqueness of amber & the allure of genuine Baltic amber jewelry

Natural amber is fragile and must be handled with care. When its thin crust is polished off, it reveals a beautiful palette of 7 primary colors and up to 300 shades! The most common are yellow amber or light yellow amber, with one of the rarest colors being white.

White amber, also known as “royal Baltic amber” or “bone Baltic amber,” is starkly different from black Baltic amber. Sometimes black amber contains only 10–15 % resin, with the rest being impurities, making it not entirely transparent.

Amber changes color when heated, turning transparent amber into a rich red. However, amber isn’t always monochromatic. Unique combinations of two or more colors and shades with different patterns can be found. This variety of colors and patterns adds exceptional charm and versatility to amber jewelry.

Amber brought to new life: Lithuanian amber jewelry

Amber has always been an excellent material for handmade amber jewelry. Traditional genuine amber jewelry products were bulkier and heavier. Today amber is revitalized and, with the help of new processing technologies, gets a completely different – modern look. Also, the vast variety of different amber (e.g., cherry amber, black cherry amber) turns the process into a magnificent creative adventure.

A new and modern approach to amber jewelry—one of MONDRI core values. All jewelry is made and designed in Lithuania, with every detail carefully considered. Precious metal (e.g., silver and amber jewelry, amber and gold vermeil jewelry) combined with meticulously selected Baltic amber stone make a duo of lasting value.

Amber is used to create amber earrings, amber bracelets, amber necklaces, bead necklaces, pendants, and other amber jewelry pieces. Now, unique amber jewelry products can be part of everyone’s collection as well as a unique jewelry gift for someone special.
