All necklaces are $9.00, except for the butter style (has higher levels of succinic acid), which is $12.00! 50-52% off! Start shopping HERE!
As long as the necklace is not too snug, the length is a personal preference. A convenient way to measure is to drape a tape measurer or a piece of string around the neck to see what length you are most comfortable with.
Some prefer a shorter length so that the necklace is less likely to get caught on anything & others select longer lengths so that their children can wear one size for a longer period of time. Only you can make this choice!
Among other things, amber is a natural analgesic (pain reliever) and anti-inflammatory. When amber is worn on the skin, the warmth of the skin releases trace amounts of healing oils on the skin. Commonly known as "teething jewelry," baltic amber has been a natural and traditional European remedy for teething discomfort for hundreds of years.
Inspired by Finn's necklaces and bracelets are handcrafted with amber beads imported from the Baltic Region. They are made of authentic Baltic amber, the most esteemed type of amber in the world. The translucency of amber depends on the amount of air bubbles contained within a piece of amber and their distribution. Some believe the color is related to the type of tree source.
Succinic acid is the most beneficial component of the amber. The darkest colored amber generally contains less succinic acid than lighter colors. The string the amber is strung on is designed to stretch when a good amount of pressure is applied, and break if necessary. Each piece of amber is individually double knotted on the strand. The necklace fastens with a screw clasp.
Children should be supervised when wearing jewelry, and it should be removed when the child sleeps.
Similar to children’s games that have age recommendations when the items contain small parts, new legislation coming into effect in the US in February, 2009, mandates an age recommendation of 3 years and older for this type of jewelry. This jewelry is not intended for wear on children under 3 years old. (If you do not see this age recommendation on the website of other retailers of this type of jewelry, it does not mean that their jewelry is better suited or safer for young children – they are simply in violation of US law [Small Parts Regulations].)
