We have both amber & sterling silver as well as amber bead based necklace designs. Necklaces are usually designed either so that the focal point is built onto a chain, or so that the stones flow all the way around in a circle or strand. Pendants, charms & slides, on the other hand, may be removed from their neck ware. That's the difference. If amber necklaces interest you, please also see amber sets & amber pendants.
