Amber pins and brooches are one of the oldest types of amber jewelry. They are made of amber, which is a yellow, sometimes reddish or brownish, fossil resin of organic origin. Amber is a translucent brittle material used for making beautiful jewelry or other ornamental objects. The origins of amber date back to about 45 million years ago and it is assumed that first amber jewelry pieces were made as early as in Stone Age.
Amber pins / brooches played both functional and decorative role. Early brooches / pins were created to hold clothes together but later became mainly a fashion accessory. There were several distinct types of brooches, not only in design, but in the fastening mechanism. The most popular and best known was the ‘safety pin’ form. First amber pins / brooches featured very simple designs, however with the advancement of technology and development of jewelry manufacturing techniques the number of available designs grew tremendously.
Although pin / brooch is not the most popular jewelry accessory, women sometimes wear it for special occasions to create a more classic look. Today’s pins / brooches are available in different styles, shapes and colors. The most popular shapes are: flowers, birds, butterflies or animals. The fastening mechanism is usually made from silver or gold and the most popular amber colors are: cognac, green, cherry, honey and milky.
