Danish coastal amber
We use only Danish coastal amber in our designs and jewelry.
A large majority of the amber that is sold on the global market today is mining amber originating from Eastern Europe and the Baltic countries.
Being created, colored and shaped by the Nordic seas for more than fourty million years, Danish amber is particularly known and appreciated internationally for its high quality.
And because BIRK Danish Design is all about quality, we work exclusively with amber found on the local beaches in Denmark.
All the coastal amber that we use at BIRK Danish Design has been in the hands of our own amber artisan. He has collected it himself and personally determined its value and use. He has weighed it, shaped it, polished it and turned it into a unique piece of jewelry.

One thing that sets Danish amber apart is that it's all coastal amber.
And that it's extremely rare. In fact, Danish coastal amber represents less than 1% on the global amber market.
Found on one of the many beaches in the country, it's generally considered of a higher quality than most of the amber orginating from mines.
