FAQ - Baltic Amber teething necklace | Amber Beads
What is an Amber?
When looking at amber, one must keep in mind that one is not looking at a rock; amber is an organic compound (tree sap), one which has solidified through the fossilization process. As it is well known that tree components often have analgesic properties (aspirin is famously derived from willow bark, for example),
What is the difference between Baltic Amber and non-Baltic Amber?
Baltic Amber has unique pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory properties thanks to its succinic acid content.
Unlike conventional amber, it is not polished or heat-processed; it, therefore, retains a much higher percentage of succinic acid.
Baltic Amber is true all-natural raw amber which has not been altered, treated, or adulterated in any way: It’s shipped directly from the Baltic Sea to teething necklace manufacturers. The real age of Baltic Amber is around 40 to 50 million years old.
Why is the Baltic Sea our amber-producing region of choice? Because according to manufacturers, succinic acid concentrations are highest in amber sourced from the Baltic region. While most forms of amber contain only trace amounts of succinic acid, Baltic Amber has a concentration of between 3-8%.
Baltic Amber’s high succinic acid content is the secret to its incredible healing powers. Choosing raw amber is essential when buying a teething necklace for this reason. Other factors, such as the color of the amber, are far less important.
How do Baltic Amber teething necklaces work? Will my baby be chewing on raw amber?
Baltic Amber necklaces do not work like conventional teething aids and should not be chewed on. Instead, the succinic acid in the necklace acts as an anti-inflammatory (similar to drugs like ibuprofen, but without causing any harmful side effects).
The warmth of your baby’s skin will cause the amber to release its natural oils, which will then be gradually and gently absorbed through the skin.
As the succinic acid from these oils enters your baby’s bloodstream, pain is reduced.
Can Baltic Amber teething necklaces help to relieve aches, pain, fever, fussiness, drooling, and other teething symptoms?
According to the vast majority of parents, Baltic Amber necklaces absolutely do help to reduce pain, inflammation, and general fussiness, in addition to speeding wound healing.
Moreover, most parents find that because their babies’ bodies are under less stress when they wear Baltic Amber, their immunity is improved.
Babies who wear Baltic Amber are calmer, cry less, and sleep more soundly.
Why are different Amber necklaces different prices?
Necklaces are priced according to a number of variables:
1) Some Baltic Amber beads are unique and rare or difficult to find.
2) Higher-quality beads are harder to find and therefore more costly to purchase.
3) The shape of the beads affects cost. Round beads and nugget style beads take different lengths of time to refine. Remember that each amber bead is carefully shaped by hand.
Where do you source your Baltic Amber beads from?
Each Baltic Amber bead we purchase has been carefully hand-crafted by Lithuanian artisans, known locally as 'Masters'. These Masters round the shape of each Baltic amber bead so that it rests gently against the skin, resulting in optimal skin contact and comfort.

How are your Amber necklaces made?
Once the beads have been shaped, the artisans select a strong, durable string and carefully knot it by hand.
They ensure that each and every bead has a knot between it so that even if the necklaces breaks, beads will not scatter.
This is an additional safeguard so that your baby cannot ingest the beads. However, know that even if your baby does consume a bead, raw amber is completely non-toxic and your baby will not be at risk.
Finally, the artisans add a plastic amber-colored screw clasp that opens and closes easily. The clasp is designed to function as a safety release mechanism so that the necklace will spring open if any pressure is applied.

Which color of an Amber is most effective?
Some people believes that darker is more effective but it has not been proved. In fact, some people strongly believe "RAW vs. Polished" is more important than color choice.
My baby is teething what should I order? Amber Necklace, Bracelet or Anklet?
- Wearing more Amber it doesn’t mean it will be more effective in teething pain. Bracelet, Anklet, and Necklace they all work same. So I would suggest do not buy Necklace, Bracelet, and Anklet altogether for extra effect. However, if you like the Amber Jewelry and want matching colors and design then you can buy extra.
- If a baby is too young you can go with Anklet or Bracelet.
