FAQ - Amber Jewelry

From time to time, we get these questions from our valued customers as well as others who want to know the when, where, how and why of Amazing Amber. Here are a few of them!

Who makes the Amber Jewelry?

Each piece is hand crafted by experienced Amber Artisans using the finest quality Authentic Baltic Amber.

How is Amber Jewelry Made?

Traditional craftsmanship is infused into all our products. Each Amber Jewelry piece is made by hand. Raw Amber is sorted by sizes, colors and shapes. Each bead is cut, polished, drilled and added to the string by hand.

Is your Baltic Amber natural?

Yes. We sell 100% natural Baltic Amber. All our Amber Jewelry is carved of natural Baltic Amber chunks. Depending on a piece, it does undergo certain treatment (heating, autoclaving, polishing, etc.) which has been in practice in Amber Jewelry Making for centuries.

What is Baltic Amber?

Baltic Amber is a petrified tree resin from a family of coniferous trees. Amber Formation is really fascinating: heat, pressure, oxygen and light exposure are the contributing factor in creation of Baltic Amber and the most important factor is time. Amber is like a time capsule that lets us take a peek into the prehistoric times, tree resin would trap everything it touched before it had a chance to harden. Amber is the only stone that is not cold to touch and is very light in weight.

From a chemical point of view, Amber consists of 79 percent carbon, 10.5 percent hydrogen and 10.5 percent oxygen.

Baltic Amber what is it used for

Amber has been used since antiquity in the manufacture of jewelry and ornaments, as an ingredient in perfumes and has long been used in Folk Medicine for its healing properties.

Amber Jewelry has become very popular today especially since it was discovered that there are a vast of therapeutic effects. Amber Jewelry will faithfully provide you with soothing relief, replenish your immune system as you deal with life’s every day issues.

What is referred to as Amber Inclusion?

Baltic Amber is a scientific phenomenon that contains fossil plants and Insects that date back for over 40 million years! Finding bugs and plants frozen for millions of years is exiting experience. Most of the life-forms found in true fossil Amber are now extinct. Baltic amber gives us all a great opportunity to view fascinating world of prehistoric times.

Why the prices are so different?

Beads shape, color and weight is the most important factors in determining the Value of Amber Jewelry. Some Amber Beads are more highly polished/rounded requires more time to make. Also keep in mind that round beads are more expensive compared with other shapes because much material has to be removed (i.e., goes to waste) to create the shape.

Why Does My Amber Jewelry Look Different Than The Picture On The Website?

Baltic Amber we use in our jewelry are natural and come from the Earth. As the Earth evolves and changes, so does Baltic Amber. Due to this, the size, color and pattern (striations, mixing of colors, etc.) of the beads will vary from piece to piece.

Do the Amber Necklaces and Amber Bracelets come in different sizes?

If you need a special size, we would be happy to make it to your specifications. If you have a special design in mind, we are glad to accommodate you!

How would you describe an Amber Teething Necklace?

Comprised of Baltic Amber beads Amber Teething Necklace are designed to be worn by children when they are teething. They are worn around the child’s neck or as a bracelet and cannot be chewed on.

Do those teething necklaces made of Baltic Amber Beads really work for teething pain? This just seems so weird to me.

When you hear from your customers over and over again that Amber Teething Necklaces are the answer to their prayers for pain relief for children, it’s hard to deny the facts. Even though Baltic Amber became a reality millions of years ago, present day moms and dads are still in awe of what it can do as a natural remedy when new teething are arriving for the first time.

It is possible that the soothing and calming effect of Amber Teething Necklaces, which has been empirically observed, is based on a combination of factors. Please keep in mind that as with many Natural Remedies, what works well for one person may not work for another. Irritability caused by unknown factors (digestion issues, allergies, sensitivities etc.) and attributed to teething may not improved. However, we feel strongly that natural and preventative remedies should always be considered prior to chemical or artificial ones.

Can Amber Teething Necklace be worn during sleep?

Because children move around during that period of time, you should remove the Amber Teething Necklace whenever your child is without supervision.

Will Amber Teething Necklace cure my child’s teething pain completely?

We encourage you to read the many testimonials of parents who use Baltic Amber Teething Necklaces. Amber serves as an analgesic to alleviate teething pain and assist with the typical side effects such as restlessness, drooling and irritability.

As all children are prone to put things in their mouth, my child attempts to chew on the necklace. Is this a problem?

Yes, it would be a problem. You never want your child to have the opportunity to chew on the Amber. We suggest you put the necklace on your child and their place their clothing over it so it rests against the skin. The Amber will begin to reach your child’s body temperature very quickly and then the child will ignore its presence. There are other aids designed for teething that can give the child’s increased need for chewing something safe to use.

HOW SAFE ARE AMBER TEETHING NECKLACES TO WEAR?

Safety is a priority for us when manufacturing our necklaces, to enable us to offer you the highest safety for your child we only use synthetic plastic clasps with a screw thread which has been glued into the barrel of the clasp. The string in each of our Amber Teething Necklaces is knotted by hand in between each and every bead, so should the necklace break (which it should if necessary), the rest of the beads will not scatter.

Our Amber Necklaces are supplied with a plastic Screw Clasp, which unlike the metal one, does not cause an allergic reaction and opens and closes easily.

Note: Do not tighten screw clasp too tightly, gently tighten it until the two clasp beads touch. The parts are plastic and may be damaged if they are tightened too tightly.

WHAT HAPPENS IF THE AMBER NECKLACE GETS TORN

String in our Amber Necklaces is very strong and breaking is unlikely to happen, even if the amber necklace would break only one bead would come of.

Note: Don’t allow your child to tug excessively on the necklace, as this will stretch and weaken the string over time.

And after teething?

We recommend the Amber Teething Necklace be worn even after teething is finished as the many other benefits of Ambers therapeutic properties will continue. Amber has immune boosting properties and helps with many other ailments.

Tip: How to buy an Amber Teething Necklace.

So exactly what does Baltic Amber do?

The most obvious benefits are the reduction of inflammation (red cheeks) and a stimulation of the thyroid glands (controls drooling). Historically and scientifically associated with sunlight and warm, Amber accelerates our natural immune systems ability to heal wounds and reduces inflammation in the ears, throat, stomach and respiratory system. There is nothing on the market today that can even come close to the amazing, natural results of Baltic Amber. There are no tablets, medications or pastes that can compete with this Amber.

SO WHAT IS THE MAGIC IN BALTIC AMBER

Baltic Amber contains 3-8% of Succinic Acid, a scientifically examined medical substance used in Alternative Medicine. The highest content of the acid is found in the amber cortex-the external layer of the stone. There is much documentation regarding the power of succinic acid.

Is there any difference between the colors?

From a therapeutic perspective, there is no difference between the light Amber Color and the dark.

What do I need to know about the care of the Amber Jewelry?

Please remove Amber Jewelry for swimming or bathing. While the Amber Jewelry will cope with getting wet, we have experienced that the chlorine and other chemicals used in swimming and spa pools and the detergents in bath soaps and shampoos are having a detrimental effect on the silk threading.

  • I'm thankful that I was home today when the USPS carrier rang my door bell and asked for the required signature confirming successful package delivery. The parcel arrived in perfect condition; I thought the bow wrapped inner box was a lovely touch! The cognac Amber Bracelets and matching Amber Necklaces are beautiful and because we're having a sunny day here in Austin, Texas, I've placed all of the Amber Jewelry outside to absorb some of this marvelous sunshine; I've heard that amber is sometimes called the Tears of the Sun. Also, I find it interesting that people* who can see the human auric field, say that it's one of only a few substances that strengthens and makes brighter the subtle energy body. The 3 bonus gifts: multicolored amber ring, cognac heart pendant, raw amber. Are very much appreciated!

  • Your account records can verify that I'm am a repeat client from the USA and have always been pleased with the quality of your jewelry products and customer service. The amber barrel-clasps on the necklaces have never broken or failed and are easy to fasten by using feel of touch alone, which is a big plus for the very elderly; while the strands of individually knotted, pebble-like, beads of polished Amber that compose the necklaces, have held firm and remained shiny and beautiful throughout years of continuous wear and are making many of my close friends very happy.

  • I had done weeks of extensive research, and ended up ordering a total of 6 items over three separate orders. This is a family owned company with excellent customer service and workmanship. Over the 3 month period I was ordering Amber Jewelry, they continually updated their website to be more extensive and user friendly. They are flexible and communicate promptly and professionally. They also want you to know that your Baltic Amber Jewelery is authentic, so they send extra beads and explain how to test them for authenticity. They also provide extensive information about the history and uses for their product. I have truly enjoyed doing business w/them as well. They guarantee your satisfaction and accept returns and exchanges. I wish there were more small, artisan-type stores like this. I definitely recommend them for quality, customer service and overall value.

  • I received my Amber Necklaces in about 10 working days, coming all the way from Lithuania! It's hard to get US merchandise that quick. The experience with this company was fantastic. Everything they said about their product is true. I love the necklaces...they are beautiful Amber and of great quality. I received confirmation on purchase and shipping right away and was not concerned with credit card info since they use paypal. All in all this is a great company and I will purchase from them again and again.

  • I had a slightly custom request with my purchase for Mens Beaded Bracelet and they more than graciously accomodated 100%. My order came, and was perfect and absolutely gorgeous. It is clear that they took care to not only make a quality product but to also make it a personal work of art. They should be proud. I will be doing business with Amber Artisans again soon! Thank you very much!

  • I am very pleased with our new Amber Necklaces. The craftsmanship is exceptional! The necklaces are beautiful and I feel safe with the attention to detail in the design. The clasp is easy to use and the individual stringing is peace of mind for my baby's necklace. She was cutting her two top teeth and miserable. I am not sure of the effects as of yet, since it is day two. It does take some time to recieve them as they are coming from Lithuania., so be patient.Thank you!
