Frequently Asked Questions
What size is suitable for my child?
Please measure the child’s ankle, wrist or neck in centimetres ensuring it is not too tight or in the case of anklets / bracelets too loose. Make sure the necklace is not too long as the child may be able to get it over their chin and into their mouth. If chewed it can become dangerous as the beads will shatter and pose a choking risk.
How do I measure?
Use a measuring tape, if none available a ruler and a piece of string.
How do I look after it?
Don't let them chew it. Remove for bathing and swimming and keep away from lotions and perfumes. Please follow the instructions on the enclosed care card and when not being used store in the branded gift bag out of reach of children.
Which Colour should I choose?
Popular colours are cognac, lemon, raw green and raw honey colours. Avoid raw amber if there is a history of eczema as it can flare it.
How many do I need?
You can wear as much as you like as amber is beautiful and the colours complement each other. I started with two and most do but it’s up to you.

WITH PROPER CARE, YOUR BALTIC AMBER CAN PROVIDE A LIFETIME OF WEAR!
Raw or Polished?
RAW Baltic amber is unprocessed, untreated amber that has come directly from the Baltic Sea. It is the true form of amber. Raw amber can however flare Eczema. If you have a history of eczema in the family use polished amber instead.
Important Safety Notice:
Please supervise your child at all times while wearing the necklace. Amber necklaces are made for wearing not for chewing! Amber will crack and break under too much pressure. Jewellery should be removed when child is sleeping or unattended!
