Amber necklaces are to be worn for their healing properties, they are not for teething on or chewing!
Amber has long been heralded as a natural way to alleviate pain, most commonly teething pain in children. As an anti-inflammatory, natural Baltic Amber alleviates the pain associated with cutting teeth and by doing so calms the fussy baby, minimizing restlessness and drooling that accompany teething.
Our Amber Teething Necklaces are genuine Baltic Amber. When worn against the skin and warmed by body heat, the Amber excretes small amounts of succinic acid, a natural pain reliever and the healing element which provides relief for the irritable child.
Our necklaces are 11"-15" long and come in many color combinations.
We do not sell Amber "chip" necklaces. Chips are much less expensive to produce, but they can also have rough edges and won't lie flat against the skin. Since Amber needs to be in contact with the skin to transfer the succinic acid, we find that this style of necklace is not comfortable for babies and children. Instead our choice is oval or round beads. Neither bead is perfectly symmetrical. Round beads are rounded, but may have flat edges and imprefections. Oval beads are flatter and also not perfect ovals. Nor are these beads all identical in size, which gives each necklace a unique and charming look.
