Genuine Baltic Amber
This Amber Necklace for Babies is 100% Genuine Baltic Amber – We know because we have a direct line with the creators of these beautiful items. A baby wearing amber is a statement of environmental and health consciousness in our times. Parents and babies just love these and it is rare to see a baby not wearing a amber necklace or amber bracelet/anklet.
Many parents claim that their child is calmer, cries less and seems to experience less teething discomfort when they have been wearing an amber bead necklace. These claims are energetic rather than scientific and we suggest you read the history of amber below if you wish to know more about this.
We have two colour options for you to choose from. Mixed is the multi colour and Cognac is the single colour, dark honey look which is very popular.
Amber Baby Necklace
Parents should know that there is no scientific evidence which supports the claims that amber calms babies or helps the teething process flow easier. It is parents making these claims from experience and not every parent reports the same results. It is difficult to prove energetic healing and skeptics and scientist thinkers are unlikely to accept any benefits from Amber.
Safety features of Nature's Child amber jewellery includes:
- beads are individually knotted, so if the necklace were to break, only on bead would come free.
- Safety clasp, the screw clasp is made of a breakable plastic, so that if it is under tension, it will break.
*SAFETY INFORMATION *
- Always supervise their infant when wearing the necklace
- Remover the necklace when their child is asleep or unattended
- Not allow their child to chew on the necklace
- Seek medical advice if there are any concerns about their child's health and wellbeing
What exactly is an Amber Baby Necklace?
Amber is fossilised tree resin, or sap. When the bark of a tree has been damaged – a tree cut down or there has been an interruption in the integrity of hard outer bark – sap leaches out. If this is left undisturbed, then over time the resin solidifies to a rock like hardness. Amber bead necklaces are made from polished chips of this resin.
Holes are bored into each chip and then they are threaded onto cord which comes in various lengths so they can be looped over the baby’s head. It is possible to get amber bead anklets and bracelets as well and parents can also buy matching amber bead jewellery, including earrings.
The necklaces come in a range of colours from white-yellow, beige or brown. Manufacturers claim that the darker the amber, the more therapeutic its properties. Likewise, where in the world the amber is sourced is said to be an indication of its quality.
Why are amber bead necklaces so popular?
In medieval times it was common for adults to place amulets on babies for safe keeping. Doing this was thought to help ward off evil spirits and keep the child safe from harm. Amber featured strongly in amulets and jewellery for children.
Adorning a child with jewellery was traditionally a way of demonstrating a family’s wealth and social status but in our times, Amber Baby Jewellery stands more as a sign of health and care. Seeing a baby wearing amber could almost be said to be a way parents indicate to others that health and care of our environment is part of their parenting style.

Whatever you think, despite the lack of scientific proof, Amber bead necklaces and bracelets for babies and adults are definitely here to stay, they definitely make a environmental and health statement when you see baby wearing amber and I often think for a parent, it seems to assist with emotional bonding between parents and their child.
Amber is the colour of the sun – celestial body richly associated with folklore pertaining to warmth, healing and general wellbeing. Most of the amber used in the “better quality” or “first grade” necklaces comes from the Baltic Sea region. They have been very popular in Europe for decades but only gained notoriety in Australia this decade.
