About Baltic Amber
Amber is a fossilized tree resin (not sap) that has been used for centuries in alternativemedicine and can even be found in modern day medicine. Genuine Baltic Amber contains succinic acid. This acid acts much like your essential oils. While not evaluated by the FDA, and not endorsed for the diagnosis, treatment or cure of any condition, anecdotes of this curious compound include stories of healing, anti-inflammatory, stress and pain relief properties when worn as jewelry. The succinic acid is absorbed through the skin and may help with drooling, inflamed cheeks, swollen gums, restlessness and pain associated with teething. Amber can by used by young and old from teething to arthritis to chronic pain. We strive to offer all an all natural, drug-free pain relief option that is both affordable and beautiful!
Frequently Asked Questions
CLEANING & CARE
Cleaning your amber necklace is simple. Occasionally wipe (gently) with a damp cloth. As with all knotted jewelry, I do not recommend getting your necklace wet during bath time or swimming. In the case that your jewelry gets wet, simply lay flat to dry. Avoid direct sunlight when not being worn.
SIZING & SAFETY
The length of each piece is measured from end of clasp to end of clasp. To determine the size of jewelry you need it is best to measure with a soft tape measure or string and ruler. You want to make sure the jewelry can not go past the chin or into the mouth. Amber and gemstone jewelry are NOT for chewing, amber is soft by nature and will break. Each piece is knotted between beads to prevent choking in the case that your jewelry should break. Please use common sense when your child is wearing any type of jewelry. It is to be used under supervision only and taken off at bedtime and during naps.
Each piece in my shop is hand strung by myself, knotted and finished with your choice of sterling silver lobster clasp or a screw clasp. Due to the natural character of Baltic amber and gemstones no two are exactly alike. I take great care in using only the highest quality Certified Genuine Baltic amber from the Baltic sea regions and natural gemstones.
RESTORATION & REPAIRS
It is not uncommon for knotted jewelry to relax and stretch over time. This is a normal consequence of the natural weight of the amber and gemstone beads on knotted cording. If for any reason you would like your necklace restrung or if you are concerned you may have the wrong size, please feel free to message me directly. Resizing and Restorations may be subject to a minimal fee to cover the cost of time and materials.
