Baltic amber has been used for generations to alleviate pain and inflammation. It is a popular teething remedy!*
Our necklaces come from Lithuania, where Baltic Amber is known to wash up on the beaches. They are knotted between each bead, to ensure that if the necklace were to break, beads would not scatter everywhere. They use a plastic pop clasp.
The raw (unpolished) baroque beads in this necklace are rounder, without being entirely uniform. Each necklace is different, each with its own character. Over time the amber will take on a more polished look from wear. Keep in mind, the amount of succinic acid varies by bead, not by color. So choose a color you love!
Please remember: Amber necklaces are NOT meant to be chewed on! Amber is a natural resin, and will chip or break. Should the amber break, watch output for amber chips. Use under adult supervision - you should remove necklace at night or any other time when your child will not be directly supervised. Also remove necklace at bath time and in pools.
