5 Myths About Baltic Amber Jewellery for Kids

Amber Teething Anklets

People love myths and so do we… as long as they concern literature. When it comes to Baltic amber jewellery, legends may sometimes turn into misleading stories. We know how important it is to get the right experience from an early age, therefore, it is time to debunk some widespread myths about Baltic amber jewellery for kids.

1. Baltic amber bracelets are often considered alongside traditional teething aids, yet they serve a distinct purpose. Despite similarities in shape and name, their functions diverge significantly. Unlike teething rings and toys made from natural rubber, silicone, or solid plastic, which are intended for safe chewing, amber bracelets are designed to be worn, not chewed on. While they pose no harm, they remain pieces of jewelry. The primary benefit is believed to come from skin contact. Baltic amber is said to offer mild pain relief and reduce discomfort. Ultimately, these bracelets and traditional teething toys can complement each other, contributing to your child's comfort.

2. Amber jewellery serves aesthetic purposes only. It is true that Baltic amber bracelets, anklets and necklaces are jewellery in the first place. Not regular, though. Amber is widely known for its key ingredient, the fossilized resin. When warmed by the skin, it is said to release healing properties that are highly appreciated for managing various types of pain, including joint discomfort. With simple yet elegant designs of the amber jewellery and its contribution to your well-doing, you actually get 2 in 1.

3. Baltic Amber jewellery suits every child. It might seem children do not really care about their looks but what they really care about is their comfort. It may take time for your kid to get used to something totally new to them. If you notice your kid cannot make his or her peace with the necklace or anklet and is constantly trying to tear them off, do not force your precious one to wear the jewellery. Even though amber healing properties have accumulative effect, the comfort and safety of your kid is equally important.

4. Baltic amber jewellery is not a toy. Both, polished and raw amber beads are nice to the touch and very pretty to look at. Therefore, some kids might want to use their bracelet as another toy and some parents do not make a big deal out of it. Please do not let your kid play with the jewellery and do not leave them unattended to prevent possible choking hazard.

5. Baltic amber jewellery is expensive. The prices might differ as they depend on various factors. Such as the size and shape of amber beads, type of amber and additional stones or pendants. However, the range is wide and you should easily find something that would delight your eye and be affordable at the same time. The good thing is that the properties of amber are not influenced by the price.
