What the healing properties do Baltic Amber have?

Due to strict UK advertising regulations, we are unable to list what they are believed to help with. The items have not been lab tested for effectiveness therefore we are not allowed to make health claims. One day, I hope, this may change. Please note that they are not a replacement for medical care or therapy.

 

Which type of amber do we use?

We use only AAA class jewelry grade raw Baltic amber material. Our talented artisans DO NOT use plastic amber imitation or reconstructed or melted amber. You may buy with confidence with us as many people worldwide do. You can find different shades of baby amber beads in both traditional and contemporary designs. Amber beads were made by taking a block of amber, cutting it to roughly the right shape and drilling a hole through it.

 

How much is shipping?  

Nothing! We offer free shipping on all of our products without questions. 

 

Measurement Guide

Please note that all of our measurements are taken from the end of one clasp to the end of the other. It includes the full item with clasps.

 

Anklets: The easiest way to measure is with some string. It should fit so that you can slide your little finger under it, but not so it slides off the foot. The string can then be measured next to a ruler to determine the size needed.

 

Bracelets: Please measure the same way as anklets or measure an existing bracelet you have. 

 

Necklaces: Adults - Measure an existing necklace you own or again use string. Children - Necklaces must not be too long but also not too tight. The easiest way to measure is to take a piece of string, again and measure the desired length around their neck and then measure against a ruler.

For safety the necklace must not be too long so it could come off or get tangled. It is also advisable that they do not chew it.

 

What is the right length? 

Our amber necklaces & anklets are generally one size: amber necklaces - 12.6-13 inches or 32-33 cm. / amberanklets/bracelets - 5.5-6.0 inches or 14-15 cm  This is generally a good size for most young children, regardless of age. Before you purchase, we advise you to measure the wrist/ankle or neck and then check our product details.

 

Is there any difference between the colours?

From a therapeutic perspective, there is no difference between the light amber and the dark. From a fashion perspective, the darker colours are popular for boys while the trends for girls tend towards the lighter tones.

 

Will water damage the necklace or anklet?

We recommend you avoid extended contact with water. With prolonged exposure the thread may become brittle. 

 

What will happen if it gets pulled?

All our products designed to be safe and they are threaded on cotton.  If they are pulled hard or caught in something, they will break.  If they do break, only one bead will come loose because they are knotted between each bead.

 

How long will my necklace or anklet last?

The necklaces and anklets are specifically designed for use with babies and are therefore extremely durable. With the right care, one necklace will last and become a treasured heirloom to pass down in the family.

 

My child wants to chew on the necklace or anklet, is this OK?

It will not cause any harm to the child, however the necklace/anklet is made for wearing, not for chewing. The easiest solution is to tuck it under their clothing and the necklace will quickly assume body temperature and the child will ignore it. You should use other teething aids such as chewing rings to meet your child increased chewing needs. 

 

Are they safe?

As a safety feature there is a knot before and after each bead, so that even in the extremely unlikely event of the string being torn, no beads are lost and there is no risk of choking, necklaces are secured with a traditional screw clasp, not a sterling silver hook and ring!
