Fine silver is 99,9% pure silver
Pure silver is a very soft material
Therefore, Pretiosa uses fine silver for the smaller parts of her jewelry, like bezels and other little details
Sterling silver is 92,5% pure silver
This is an alloy made when (usually) copper, the remaining 7.5%, is combined with fine silver
This is a less soft and more durable material
Amber is fossilized resins that originate from various tree and other plant sources
It has been used for personal adornment and other purposes for several thousand years.
It has been found in various parts of the world, but the main historical source is the land that surrounds the Baltic Sea – Poland, Lithuania, Latvia and the Russian enclave of Kaliningrad.
Amber was discovered on beaches after storms, and mined from nearby sedimentary deposits.
Amber is found in many shapes and usually in small sizes.
Its color is mainly yellow to orange or brown colors and they range from opaque to transparent
Besides its ornamental use, amber has been of great scientific importance because plant and animal life from the geologic past is often preserved in its resin. Amber from the Baltic region constitutes the largest known deposit of fossil plant resin and the richest repository of fossil insects of any geological age
