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.

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.

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.

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 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 childís 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.


Amber Teething Necklaces Safety is a priority for us when manufacturing our Amber Necklaces. The string in each of our Baltic 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.


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 Amber's therapeutic properties will continue. Baltic Amber has immune boosting properties and helps with many other ailments.

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.


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.

Regardless of your reason to wear Baltic Amber Jewelry for natural beauty or natural healing, it can change your life in the best possible way.

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.
