Amber is an ancient fossilised tree resin whose mysterious nature, magical allure and warm rich honey colours, have captivated the minds and interests of many for millennia. Since ancient times of Pliny the Elder to modern day, scholars and scientists the world over have debated and written about amber at great lengths, perhaps unlike any other in the history of organic gemstones, or any gem. A time capsule, in which flora and fauna is perfectly preserved, amber can tell so much about life from the past.

Appreciated for its colour, beauty and pliability since Neolithic times, amber was one of the first materials to be used as personal adornment. Not only prized for its beauty as jewellery, amber was also attributed to having mystical and healing properties and has been used as a healing and protective talisman by many cultures to this day.

Light in weight and valued at par with gold, amber became a global commodity. As overland trade routes were established, amber from the Baltic region began to travel far and wide becoming an important medium of exchange. Amber was exported to North Africa from the 16th to the 19th century and traded in exchange for precious local resources.

A tribute to the beauty and mystery of the past, at the heart of the Amber collection is this ancient magical resin crafted from the finest butterscotch beads. Passionately sourced from the souk of Omdurman, the collection of this resin grew a bead at a time. Owning a piece of amber is like holding on to a treasured talisman, a symbol of protection and timeless beauty of the ancient world to be passed down through generations.
