1. We work with moms who supply our Baltic Amber. That’s right, we don’t use large factories or corporations. Instead, we support small businesses–moms and women like us! When I founded Spark of Amber, I got lots of contacts from big factories, but that’s not the route I wanted to take. I chose to work with several reputable small sellers. . with women who live by the Baltic Sea in Lithuania. With women who sell Baltic Amber. . .moms who select the finest pieces of Amber and polish them to perfection (or select the nicest raw pieces for our raw necklaces).
This works to your benefit also, because these women put their life into finding the best Amber, as they also need to support their families. All amber sold by Spark of Amber is professionally tested for authenticity (far more reliable than “home tests”), so these moms know their business and livelihood depends on only selling Authentic, high-quality Amber.
So, when you buy from Spark of Amber, you are supporting mothers across the world, working hard to support their own families in Lithuania, not some large factory or corporation. To me, that makes a difference. It makes a difference for a woman to be able to support her family effectively, and we at Spark of Amber are proud to support these women. As our business grows, we will find more hard-working women in Lithuania to partner with. It might not be as easy as working with a large factory, but it is way more rewarding.
2. We only ship in the United States. The reason for this is that our main goal is making the best Baltic Amber products more readily (and quickly) available in the United States. Moms with teething babies, or shoppers looking for beautiful Baltic Amber jewelry, don’t want to have to wait for weeks to get their items. We understand that and have very fast shipping!
3. We offer personalized customer support, personally answering questions posted to our Facebook page or emailed through our website contact form. No matter how big we grow, I hope we can continue to offer high-quality customer support via Facebook and Email.
4. We offer Free shipping and consistently good prices. People ask me if we send out “discount codes” for Sparkofamber.com. We do not choose to offer discounts, however, we always offer free shipping. At Spark of Amber, we also keep our products priced as affordably as we can, to make them available to everyone. Rather than price our products higher and give out discounts occasionally, we want to keep our prices consistently fair, while offering good value and the best Baltic Amber products available.
Thank you for reading our post and for supporting Sparkofamber.com. We truly value your business.
