RECONSTRUCTED OR MODIFIED OR PRESSED AMBER
When buying jewelry, we want to make sure that we buy an original, long-lasting piece. Unfortunately, as in all markets, jewelry is full of counterfeits or fakes. Their manufacturers try to convince buyers that the product has features it doesn’t have. Amber products are no exception. Below we present the most popular amber counterfeits and how to distinguish them from real products.
Amber is not only natural - terms such as reconstructed, pressed amber are used. Original amber jewelry is made from solid pieces of amber and is processed to acquire a certain shape. The processing can be in regular shapes (round beads, oblong beads, faceted or other shapes) or leaving the original amber texture.
So what is RECONSTRUCTED With MODIFIED With PRESSED amber?

Sometimes the desired color is added (white, black ...) and cut into the desired shapes.
Of this waste made jewelry will not stand out the same medicinal and beneficial propertiesas natural amber. It is not forbidden to produce pressed amber products, but there is a requirement to inform the consumer about the product he is buying.
