Amber is a soft material that is only a little harder than a fingernail. This makes it easy to cut, grind, drill and polish. However, great care must also be taken not to damage the amber while working on it. As a natural material amber contains a lot of cracks and inclusions (such as soil, plant parts and more rarely insects and smaller animals), which can be hidden inside the stone, so only when slowly and gently working on the amber its secrets will be revealed.
At House of Amber we create jewellery from amber of the very finest quality, carefully selected and uniquely designed, and often set with silver, gold and diamonds. In the hands of our skilled goldsmiths, jewellery of both classic and modern design is created.
During summer and on special occasions you can experience the transformation of amber from a raw stone to a sparkling piece of jewellery, when our skilled goldsmiths will be working in the museum workshop.
