Dainty and edgy at the same time
After many millions of years, fossilized resin produces amber. Most of you know it as "barnsteen". Baltic amber contains something called succinic acid. It has a number of beneficial properties good not only for teething but also aching muscles and joints. Succinic acid is a natural anti-inflammatory analgesic that is activated by the warmth of your body. Baltic Amber necklaces and bracelets are knotted in between each individual bead, so if the necklace were to break, only one piece would fall off.
The Gold of the Baltic Sea
Amber is the fossilized resin of ancient trees. Between 10 and 100 million years ago, these resin-bearing trees fell and were carried by rivers to coastal regions. The trees were covered with sediment, and over millions of years, the resin hardened. The result of this metamorphosis is an exceptional gem with extraordinary properties, which is used by both artisans and scientists. Sometimes called the Gold of the Baltic Sea, amber is an amazing natural gem. When worn against the body, amber is said to release natural oils onto the skin that are circulated into the bloodstream, improve thyroid function and cure impaired nerves too.
The solution for teething babies?
Teething necklaces and bracelets are made of Baltic amber, or fossilized tree resin. In theory when baby wears one, his body heat triggers the release of a minute amount of oil that contains succinic acid, which is absorbed into the bloodstream. When the oil is absorbed, it has an analgesic effect on swollen, sore gums. The amber on the necklace contains an analgesic that helps relieve your child when it is released into the bloodstream. This is called succinic acid. Most amber teething necklaces contain up to 8% of the acid. When an amber teething necklace is placed against the skin, it heats up. It releases oils containing succinic acid. It is then absorbed into the bloodstream through the skin. This is what actually helps to ease your teething baby’s pain. Amber necklaces and bracelets also work because they induce a calming effect. When your baby is teething, they are very agitated and distressed. It has been proven that the necklaces do soothe this feeling. It even works for adults so you can be sure about every single claim. Amber teething necklaces also work because succinic acid is believed to help boost the immune system. Wearing an amber teething necklace around your child’s neck also helps reduce drooling. How does this happen? Well, succinic acid stimulates the thyroid glands for reduced saliva production. Besides teething, amber can also have great benefits when worn by adults. Amber is also an anti-anxiety remedy that rids fatigue and weariness, excellent pain relief for head, neck and throat areas, especially for congestion.
The necklace should fit loosely around your child’s neck, but should not be so long that it is in their line of vision when looking down. Baltic Amber necklaces should be knotted in between each individual bead, so if the necklace were to break, only one piece would fall off. Never leave your child unattended while wearing the necklace, and be sure to remove the necklace when the child is sleeping (you can double the necklace and use it as an anklet under a sock at night). To clean your Baltic Amber, simply wipe with a soft cloth. If you need to use water feel free, and then dry in the sun.
Sterling Silver - When metals (sterling silver) are exposed to the air, they experience a chemical process called oxidation. This oxidation can produce a number of different outcomes from rust on steel to tarnish on silver.
One of the best ways to prevent sterling silver jewelry from tarnishing is by wearing it.
Your skin's oils can actually help to keep the jewelry clean and maintain its brilliance.
Another way is to polish. Polishing is a great way to spruce up sterling silver that hasn't tarnished too much. It's also a helpful way to clean oxidized silver, too. We recommend using a special silver cloth to polish the accessories. If you don't have one, use a microfiber or non-abrasive cloth.
Gold plated - All our jewels are made of the highest quality 925 sterling silver and gold plated with 3 micron of fine gold. Gold plating is a process where a thin layer of gold is placed on the surface of a different material.
All of our jewelry is plated on top of a base of sterling silver. As it is a thin layer of gold, extra care should be taken to maximize its lifespan. You can wear our jewelry while washing your hands and showering.
To make sure that your jewelry stays in prime condition it is important to handle it with care. Therefore we recommend taking off your jewelry while:
• Sleeping (especially necklaces)• Spraying perfume, oils, lotions• Swimming (chlorine has a negative effect)• Showering & washing your hands• Exercising (sweat has a negative effect on plating)• Cleaning.
