Our goal has always been to create more confidence in Baltic amber retail. But in order to be trusted, you have to be transparent. If you buy a precious item, you normally get a document with formal information including country of origin, properties of the product and manufacturing information. So you can be sure that the product is genuine and it meets your desired quality requirements. Even if you decide to sell the product, you can show the document that you attained to assure the buyer of the item's quality and origin. The idea behind Amber Standard is the same – to create a community of trustworthy, honest and reputable Baltic amber retailers and to provide a certification service for their customers. We truly hope that our efforts will bring more trust in the market and keep the consumers safe.
How it works
After online retailer applies for the membership we gather information on his business, product suppliers,communicate, investigate, ask for references and finally decide if the company can be trusted. Every new member brings a huge risk to our community, so we will do our best to make sure the head of the business is an absolutely honest person with decent reputation. Membership provides the following privileges:
True members of our group can distribute authenticity tags and buyers of their products will be able to check authenticity of amber jewelry by visiting www.amberstandard.com. Once AS code is inputted and pictures uploaded we will investigate each case and verify whether the product is genuine or not. As each Amber Standard member has its own unique AS code, we will always be able to trace product origin. Every piece of amber is unique, thus a high quality picture works practically the same as fingertips for human identity confirmation. If merchandise owner suspects fraud, our team will investigate the issue and will always be on the side of truth. Any violation of our policy will lead to membership suspension, financial penalties and loss reimbursement.
Our goal has always been to create more confidence in Baltic amber retail. But in order to be trusted, you have to be transparent. So as an open community we welcome all the new members and look forward for a pleasant cooperation. Join us, spread the word and help to save the precious name of Baltic amber.
