This distinctive Necklace displays Moroccan Amber Resin Beads in attractive shades of coral. Valued for their good looks and striking colors, Moroccan Amber Resin Beads have been prized for centuries among the Berber tribes of the mountainous regions of North Africa (Atlas Mountains). In traditional Berber families, such beads conveyed both status and wealth and have been passed down from one generation to the next. Our Beads are graduated, ranging in diameter from 21mm to 29mm. They have black markings at the crown of each Bead — both top and bottom — contrasting nicely with the rich coral color. While we do not know the exact age of the Beads, the Moroccan Amber looks vintage in appearance. We've paired the Moroccan Amber with 4mm Smoky Quartz Teardrops, which have been placed between the larger Amber Beads to add structure and design interest. The Smoky Quartz is semi-translucent and near-black in color. The Stones are highlighted by eight 8mm Oxidized Sterling Silver Rounds, which complement the dark tones in the Quartz and Amber and add subtle sparkle. At the top of the Necklace the Moroccan Amber transitions to 2 strands of Smoky Quartz Teardrops, streamlining the profile and ensuring wearer comfort. The Necklace is finished with Sterling Silver Rounds and Toggle Clasp and adorned with a Southwest Designs Sterling Charm. The piece weighs 202 grams and is a showy 28-1/2 inches long.
