Amber is a fossilized resin, not a stone. It is therefore warm to the touch, and light to wear.
When amber is worn on the skin, the skin's warmth releases miniscule amounts of succinic oils from the amber which are then absorbed via the skin into the bloodstream.
Amber's anti-inflammatory and therapeutic properties have long been appreciated by parents in Europe.
All of our Baltic Amber teething necklaces feature rounded beads for your baby's maximum comfort.
Beads are small enough to not pose a choking hazard and each one is knotted individually for safety.

Gintaras (Lithuanian for amber) comes from "ginte" (meaning to protect).
Amber is any natural resin which oozed its way out of a tree and eventually fossilized at any time from recent times back to many million years ago. Amber comes in many shades and colors, although the most common are cognac, honey, green, lemon yellow, ivory and cream/yellow. It is is lightweight and because it is an organic substance, each piece is unique.
Baltic amber (known as succinite) is a specific subset of amber that is found only in northern Europe: it accounts for some 80% of the known amber in the world. Between 35 and 50 million years ago, sap oozed out from a forest of conifers (probably either false larch or kauri) in the region now covered by the Baltic Sea, and eventually hardened into clear lumps. Shoved around northern Europe by glaciers and river channels, lumps of genuine Baltic amber can still be found today on the eastern coasts of England and Holland, throughout Poland, Scandinavia and northern Germany and much of western Russia and the Baltic states.
Baltic amber is fossil resin produced by pine trees, which grew in Northern Europe - from southern regions of the present day Scandinavia and nearby regions of the bed of the Baltic Sea. The climate became warmer and conifer trees started to exude big amounts of resin. Scientists say that amber is a fossil pine resin from this region that has achieved a stable state through oxidation. The word amber meant only one thing – the Baltic Amber. However, the process of how amber is formed traced more amber varieties in different parts of the world. Although more than 125 types of fossil resins are known in the world, these resins are not amber but its relatives. They are mostly found in Europe and America and each of them has its own name. But the Baltic amber is uniquely known for its quality and is most sought after.
Cleaning instructions Two containers of water.
Some liquid Soap
Some olive oil.
And a few towels
Mix a small amount of liquid soap in the water, dip it in the soap and water mixture, and scrub the amber gently. focus on the area wear the silver meets the amber, or in the case of amber without silver, in between the amber stones, or beads. Rinse off any residue from the soap, by washing off the amber in your other container of water. Take small amount of olive oil, apply it to your hand, (or finger depending on the size of the amber) and work it into the stone. This will keep your stone with a beautiful luster. Be careful when cleaning Amber has an approximately Mohs Hardness Value of 2.5, which means it’s a very soft gemstone, and can be scratched.
How they are made? Sizes, colors, shapes of stones, and the length of the necklace may vary from necklace to necklace. All amber stones we use for our amber jewelry are genuine, authentic, natural Baltic amber stones. It is not artificial, plastic, synthetic, reconstituted or substitute for amber. Every bead is knotted in between to prevent choking hazard. Even if string is torn only one bead would come off. Strong silk that is matched to the amber color is used for every necklace. A strong screw clasp is used.
Whom are they designed for? Baltic Amber teething necklaces are designed for boys and girls. These necklaces are a must-have for teething symptoms. Baltic Amber is completely natural pain relief with no side effects.
When can my baby start wearing the necklace? The necklace may be worn from 8 weeks and up. Although your child can wear this necklace at any time, the earlier the better. The younger they are when they start wearing it, the more likely they are to get used to it and not pull on it. How do baltic amber necklaces work? When a baby is wearing amber teething necklace against the skin, the skin's warmth releases healing oils from the amber (a resin) which are absorbed via the skin into the bloodstream. Amber is not a rock and is therefore warm to the touch, as well as very comfortable and light to wear. Children wearing amber is a very old traditional custom in Europe and the Far East. Amber is known to reduce inflammation of the throat, ear and stomach and to fight inflammation, infections and respiratory disease. Traditional beaded amber necklaces are a less intrusive remedy for the pain and side effects of teething, such as lack of appetite, upset tummies, ear ache, fevers and colds. A natural analgesic, amber will help calm a baby without resorting to drugs. Amber's anti-inflammatory and therapeutic properties are also recognized by allopathic medicine. These necklaces are long known for the healing properties of amber which include calmative, analgesic, antispasmodic, expectorant, and febrifuge (anti-fever) functions. What happens if a necklace gets broken? Silk string is very strong and breaking is unlikely to happen, but even if the necklace breaks only one bead would come off. The Baltic Amber necklace beads are light and small and therefore too small for a baby/child to choke on. But if a baby/child should swallow a bead from the Baltic Amber necklace, it would not be harmful since it is not toxic. DisclaimerAlthough we have never had any any incidents that have resulted in harm to infants, there is always a chance they will break the necklace apart and perhaps swallow one of the beads. We have gone to every extent to ensure the safety of the child, the beads are knotted in between each other, and the cord is not very strong, the clasp is a screw clasp. Amber is a natural healing product that works by being next to baby's skin. The child does not have to put the beads in or around their mouths for the amber to work. This product should be used under direct supervision of an adult. We assume no responsibility if any harm should come to the child, due to misuse of our products.
