I always love when there’s a great story behind a piece of jewellery.
This article from the Daily Mail shows a simple amber necklace that’s going up for auction that’s likely to fetch £10,000. Why? Because the beads are 40 million years old, containing fossilized ants, mosquitoes, and other ancient critters.
What a fascinating piece of history to have! I love amber, and I’d have a hard time parting with a unique piece like this, but the collector who buys it at auction will have an incredible necklace for their collection.
