I love jewelry shopping in Poland and amber is my favorite! Posted by on Sep 20, 2018 in Arts, shopping

When it comes to jewelry, all women love it! Some may not admit it, but I think that every woman loves jewelry. It could be very subtle and delicate, sparkly and big, chunky statement pieces! We are all different and we love different things. No matter what we choose, it’s always fun to shop for jewelry, make it or just simply put it all together with your outfit!

I love bohemian pieces, statement jewelry, leather earring are definitely my weakness…but my favorite is amber (bursztyn)!!! And you can definitely find plenty beautiful amber pieces in each jewelry category I like!

Mostly everyone who visits Poland brings back a piece of amber jewelry to keep or give as a gift. Today Baltic amber is in great demand and short supply. You can find it in any city, but Trójmiasto (Gdańsk, Gdynia and Sopot) are definitely a great places to look for it. I always find a beautiful piece in Kraków as well!

Happy shopping and I would love to see your favorite piece of Amber jewelry you own! Here is mine:
