Each of them was polished in another way and to different extent preserved in the natural shape. Repetitive shape of a ring was meant to adjust itself to the stone and not the other way round. The ring was supposed to emphasize unique character of the work and keep the eye on the stone, not on the ring.

Amber stones were polished in a different way and technique, depending on their shapes. In each version the natural structure was preserved and inner beauty of amber was shown.
