Each piece is totally unique, with varying shades of blue; light-blue, sky-blue, green-blue and deep-blue and is usually mottled with white veins. The Amber and Larimar Museum specialises in the creation of uniquely stunning pieces of Larimar jewellery such as silver necklaces strung with large, glistening Larimar stones, as well as delicate earrings, striking bracelets and eye-catching rings. Larimar is one of the Dominican Republic’s true treasures – no Dominican women should be without a piece of Larimar jewellery and for tourists Larimar makes the perfect gift or souvenir.
