This particular listing is for raw baltic amber with amber colored beads. I do make the same styles with polished baltic amber. Please see my other listings for additional sizes and styles.
Contact me if you have colors in mind that I do not have displayed. I have tons of color options available and can do custom orders. Please visit my facebook (www.facebook.com/icebyissa) and like my page for additional information and giveaways.
The benefits of Baltic Amber:
Baltic Amber contains high concentrations of succinic acid, which naturally occurs in the body and has many health benefits. It is a natural analgesic and has anti-inflammatory properties.
Well known as a teething aid for babies, amber also helps sooth other inflammatory-related health problems including:
Allergies Arthritis Digestive problems Heart disease Type 2 Diabetes Cancer Lupus Multiple Sclerosis Alzheimer’s Disease and more...
Standard Sizing Babies under 2 years: 11 inch-12 inch
*note- baby/toddler sizes are made with "break-away" clasps. If your child gets caught on something the clasp is made to "break-away" without any of the beads falling off to prevent choking or strangulation. If the clasp happens to "break-away" it is very easy to fix with pliers. Please note if you do not want this type of clasp. It is recommended for children up to 3 years.
The weight and size of your child matters. If your child is very young or small, the 11 inch is appropriate. If your child is very large or closer to 2 years old, the 12 or 13 inch would be more suitable.
Children over 2 years: 13 inch is recommended. Again, know your child (big or small for their age) and a quick measurement never hurts!
Sizing rule of thumb: The necklace should never be long enough to pull over the chin. The necklace should be not tight like a choker, but close enough where you can fit 2 fingers snugly in between the neck and necklace.
