The amber necklace can be worn from 3 months of age or as soon as a parent is comfortable with their child wearing jewellery. Each necklace is on average 32cm so should fit most children up to 7 years of age.
We have two colour options for you to choose from. Mixed is the multi colour and Cognac is the single colour, dark honey look which is very popular.
Always supervise their infant child when wearing the necklace. Remove the necklace when their child is asleep or unattended. Not recommended for teething and not allow their child to chew the necklace. Any infant wearing jewellery poses as potential risk of choking, strangulation or injury. Always seek medical advice if there are any concerns about their child’s health and wellbeing.
Good to know:
There is no scientific evidence to suggest that a baby wearing an amber bead necklace provides any health benefits. Some proponents of amber teething necklaces claim that they release succinic acid, a natural anti-inflammatory substance, which can soothe teething pain in babies. However, there is no research to support this claim.
The most commonly used thread for baby amber necklaces is a strong nylon thread, which is also known as a fishing line or bead cord. This type of thread is made specifically for jewellery making and is designed to withstand tension and abrasion.
What is Baltic Amber:
Baltic amber is a fossilized resin from the sap of ancient pine trees that grew in the Baltic region of Europe. It is estimated to be between 35 and 50 million years old and is found in countries such as Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, and Russia.
The resin is believed to have been produced by the trees as a defence mechanism against insects and disease, and it has preserved the remains of small organisms such as insects and plant matter, which can be seen as inclusions within the amber.
Baltic amber is highly valued for its beauty and is often used in jewellery making.
