Autumn, the season when everything turns Golden – one of the many hues of Amber. This beautiful resin comes in a array of colors from Golden to Blue, but mostly it comes in shades of yellow to orange. Nature has given us this gift, which can be extracted, from many sources – earth, sea, and trees. Amber can be mined from inside the earth and is found in many countries, although Amber from Russia is more valued – it is also called Baltic Amber because it is found in the Baltic region.

Amber being very light floats on salt water, the waves wash it to the shore and there it lies till it is collected. Hardened resin from trees also created Amber in different shapes. Clear or cloudy, this honey-colored resin has been used since time immemorial for therapeutic and ornamentation purposes. Rings have always enhanced the grace of hands.

You can choose a ring to suit your style and budget. The design of the ring and the size of the stone will decide the price of the ring. Everyone can find an amber ring to fit into their Jewellery collection. As with other gemstones, Amber too can be pricey or cheap. Baltic Amber Rings (Amber found in Russia) will be more expensive and natural stones will also be priced on the higher end. A Certificate of Authenticity from your jeweler will ensure the stone inside your ring is authentic and if you ever want to sell it, you can always get a good price for a certified stone. Rings – millions of designs to choose from.

Try on the ring and get one that fits perfectly- not too tight, not loose. Comfort is important when buying a ring since your fingers are often in motion. Amber rings do not necessarily have to be Golden, use orange amber with white gold or even green amber (but beware green amber can be just heat-treated yellow amber) with silver for elegance. Ring selection is very personal; so browse the Internet for millions of designs in all price ranges.

The choice is unlimited. Just be sure to buy from a reliable source. When buying Amber Rings, be careful of imitations. Plastic and glass are often passed off as the real thing. A good test of amber is, when touched with a hot needle, the resin gives off a pleasant pine tree fragrance whereas plastic gives off a foul odor and glass will splinter. And remember real amber also floats on salt water. Amber Rings may have inclusions (tiny bubbles dust particles or even tiny creatures), which are a proof that the resin is millions of years old. Place a large, honey colored stone inside a beautifully crafted Gold ring and glow. Add a golden lame gown to it and watch eyes glow with love or envy.

Selecting a ring can be great fun, whether you are buying one to match with your Amber Necklace or just a lone Amber Ring. While buying an Amber ring be very careful, the stone is brittle and cracks easily. It measures only 2.5 on the hardness scale, which means amber is not a hard stone and can break if the ring is worn carelessly. Wear your ring carefully and store it even more carefully. Wrap it separately, away from other Jewellery. It is better not to combine amber with other stones. The amber may crack or chip and the harder stone will remain intact. It will look ugly and you will have to spend unnecessary money to reset your ring with a new amber stone.

The glow of amber has attracted many, and it has been proved by science that amber contains a substance that is therapeutic. The aura of amber conveys its healing powers and bestows good health to those who wear it. Wear a ring of Amber and glow – with health.
