The Amber Shop

The Amber Shop

15 Market Place
Southwold
IP18 6EA
United Kingdom

The Amber Shop is the biggest and oldest amber specialist in Great Britain, offering a wide variety of contemporary and vintage jewellery. The local amber found exclusively on the East Coast of England has been cut, polished, and shaped by our two shops for over a century. We also deal with Dominican Republic and Baltic amber in much larger quantities.

Because Robin has been lecturing on Amber for many years, he has learned what people want to know. The Amber Museum addresses these queries because he has come to understand them through his lectures.

There is only one museum dedicated to amber in Great Britain, the Amber Museum, where you can learn about the history and story of amber. The museum, created and designed by Robin and Astrid Fournel, is decorated with beautiful artefacts and carvings gathered from all over the world.

Come see the wonderful range the Amber Shop and Museum have on offer. It will be an experience like no other. 

Admission is free, and open hours are from Monday to Saturday from 9:30 to 17:00 and on Sundays and Bank holidays from 12:00 to 15:00.
