House of Amber (Ravhuset)

by | Jun 2, 2019 | Design, Design, Jewelry, Museum, Shopping

Amber is a mineralised resin that can be anywhere between 30 and 50 million years old. There is a solid basis in Denmark’s history for referring to amber as ‘the nordic gold’. Even way back in the stone age, people in the nordic region were collecting amber and making jewellery from it. For the vikings, amber was also one of the most important trade goods that they took with them around Europe.

Many Danish families have a close relationship with amber, with traditional jewellery often getting passed down through the generations.

Amber is still a much sought-after gemstone, especially because of its organic properties and its beautiful and unique nature. This is the starting point for the design work of today – including at the House of Amber, which is the premier retailer of the stone with more than 85 years of experience..

At House of Amber you can learn much more about the material, including at House of Amber, you can inspect a great deal of jewellery, artifacts and prehistoric insects trapped in amber.

Each collection produced by House of Amber takes a different expressive form, but the foundation that is common to them all is their superlative standard of quality and design.

House of Amber has three stores in Copenhagen plus the Copenhagen Amber Museum (Københavns Ravmuseum), which is located around the corner from Kongens Nytorv, and is the first building you get to along Nyhavn.

House of Amber’s stores are the perfect starting point if you’re looking for gifts that radiate an authentic Nordic identity.
