Silver combined with amber

Since ancient times, amber has been famous as a material that was used to make various jewelry. At the moment, the oldest processed amber was found in Germany, according to approximate data, it was processed 30,000 years ago. The trees that secreted resin grew back in the Oligocene era, and have no representatives in the modern plant world, so the uniqueness of amber in our time is obvious.

Amber is a warm stone and pleasant to the touch. The color of amber varies from yellow to brown, less often there are stones of green, red, white, and even blue shades. No matter what color the stone is, there is still a golden color hidden in each piece, thanks to which the gem seems strangely warm and sunny. Unlike precious stones, amber is softer. It scratches with a knife, but at the same time, it is not brittle and is an excellent material for carving. Therefore, amber jewelry and products are quite popular and desirable. To view the assortment of jewelry offered by our company, go to the site and choose what you like. Thanks to its warmth and light, amber is called "a piece of sunshine in the palm of your hand."

A combination of silver and amber

Jewelers traditionally insert amber into silver, and this is not accidental. Such a union of the power of antiquity and the energy of nature. Amber in itself has strong magical properties, and cold noble silver increases the influence of amber. Until relatively recently, jewelry with amber was much more expensive than gold: moreover, they were both more beautiful and brought much more benefit. The girl, having attached an amber brooch to her dress, was never bored on the sidelines at dances, and wearing an amber talisman pendant to the exam, she could not be afraid of a bad grade. Since ancient times, amber jewelry has been loved by women all over the world, because the gem has a beneficial effect on beauty and transforms a woman as a whole. Amber favorably shaded the skin color and gave it a long youth. It is believed that amber jewelry protects babies and nursing mothers from the "evil eye", has a good effect on creativity, adds strength and inspiration. The beauty of the stone speaks for itself, because jewelry made of it is simply magical, whether it is a necklace, bracelets, earrings, rings, pendants or brooches.

Benefits of silver

Silver is famous for its excellent ability to quickly neutralize harmful flora, without harming the beneficial ones in the human body. After researching the properties of silver, scientists discovered that the causative agents of many deadly diseases, such as diphtheria, typhoid, lung and intestinal infections, etc., do not survive for long if they are placed on silver plates. Even typhus cannot survive for days.

Leukocytes absorb silver ions and transfer them to the site of the infection. Thus, inflammation is removed under the influence of silver: it forms special compounds with proteins that neutralize the effect of many pathogenic microbes, fungi or viruses. These same compounds simultaneously exert regenerating effects on tissues, which is why silver has such a beneficial effect on any wounds and injuries.

The effectiveness of silver in relation to bacteria is amazing: the ability of silver to kill bacteria is 1750 times stronger than carbolic acid and 3.5 times stronger than chlorine, furacilin, potassium permanganate. If broad-spectrum antibiotics can destroy 5-10 types of bacteria, then colloidal silver destroys more than 650 species, while all beneficial microorganisms remain alive - because silver is a constituent part of the tissues of our body. Moreover, bacteria do not get used to the action of silver, as to drugs - this is, in our opinion, the most amazing property of silver.
