I received the “autumn” colored teething necklace and bracelet for review. I was so excited to try it out because Baby Skibbles has been in full force teething mode lately. It came in an adorable little silver bag and I was so impressed when I first opened it up. Both pieces are absolutely gorgeous.
What is amber you may ask? It is a fossilized resin containing 3-8% succinic acid which is prized for its medicinal qualities such as anti-inflammatory, pain relief, and calming properties. It is also anti-toxic and anti-bacterial. Because it’s lightweight, it’s easy for children and adults of all ages to wear.
To ensure the safety of the children wearing the necklaces, Spark of Amber double knot using a thick thread after EVERY nugget (or bead, depending on the style you get) so in the event that the jewelry does break that only that bead would fall off. The remaining beads will stack intact instead of scattering which makes me feel so much safer putting this on her.
The necklace is absolutely stunning and the baby rarely ever even notices that she has it on her. This necklace is made from real Baltic Amber pieces that have been polished, but are left in their natural “nugget” shape. I love how real it looks. It is approximately 13″ long which will fit her until she’s in her toddler years.
We also received a teething bracelet. It’s actually too big for her wrist right now, so I put it on as an anklet so it’s still having direct contact with her skin and she is still getting the healing properties from the amber. The bracelet is approximately 6″ long. I actually prefer having this to leave on her ankle at night while she sleeps since she is much less likely to bother it than the necklace (though she has never actually really noticed either).
