Have you seen the new multicolor amber jewelry? It is so pretty I just had to share it with you.
When people think of amber, they usually think yellow — yellow with very old insects fossilized inside the petrified sap. But, amber actually comes in many different colors (more than 300 in fact!), some of which are very rare.
You’ll see not only various shades of yellow and orange but also gorgeous green, white, red, black and blue , often clear and without the bugs, or maybe with tiny plants, feathers or even little creatures inside. And, some amber even changes color with the light. You’ll find translucent amber and transparent amber too.
With all this variety in amber color, you’ll also find gorgeous and very unique multicolored amber jewelry. I’ll show you some of my favorite pieces here, including pendants, earrings, rings, bracelets and pins. Enjoy!
Multicolor Amber Jewelry Sets
Tip: If you want to clean your amber jewelry, to keep it sparkling, wash it in warm, soapy water and pat dry with a soft cloth.
Here are a few amber jewelry sets in a variety of setting styles. As you can see, the settings and cuts of the amber often tends to remind of of the history of amber by resembling sap drops, but it can also be cut into a square, rectangle or even shaped in a perfectly round ball. I am sure you will find something here in your own personal style preference. Of course, you may well be so smitten with Amber, that you just might decide to try a new shape or style and add something really unique to your own jewelry wardrobe.

Multicolor Amber Bracelets
This Sterling Silver Multicolor Amber Rectangular Bangle is fabulous in design, style and color.
This colorful amber bracelet is beautiful and unique 360 degrees around. It looks stunning on its own, or you can wear it with other bangles for an amazing look.
Day or evening, this is a perfect piece to add to your outfit and your jewelry collection. It also makes a wonderful gift she will LOVE.
This bracelet is 7″ in length. Because bracelets do vary in size and because a bangle bracelet is not forgiving when it comes to fit, you will want to measure to make sure you purchase the correct size of bracelet, just like you would a ring.
How to Measure for Bracelet Size
Measure the circumference of you wrist with a piece of string. Lay the string next to a ruler or measuring tape to determine the actual circumference of your wrist. If you are purchasing a bangle bracelet, like shown above, add 1/2″ – 1″ to the length and that will be your bracelet size.
Example: My wrist measures 6″, so I add 1″, therefore I wear a size 7 bracelet.
You don’t want to add more than 1 inch. Otherwise, you would end up with a bangle bracelet that may well slide right over your hand and off your arm.
