Chook Mook Amber Teething Necklace: An Age-Old Solution with a Modern Look

03/25/2009 at 09:00 AM ET

Amber teething necklaces are the new ‘it’ thing for babies to wear. The new ‘it’ thing from thousands of years ago, that is. The amber teething necklaces from Chook Mook ($42) just happen to be the prettiest ones I’ve ever seen.

Made from genuine Baltic amber nuggets (not chips or pressed beads like many on the market today) they are said to have natural healing and pain-relieving properties, so they’re as useful as they are pretty! Jacinta at Chook Mook hand knots (double knots, even!) all the beautiful beads onto 100% silk and attaches a sterling silver fastener of your choice.

Her beads are without a doubt the nicest ones I’ve encountered and she has a huge variety of shapes and colors available. There are no synthetics, plastics or glue in Chook Mook necklaces — and that’s saying something, since so many amber teething necklaces out there have these offenders in them. And if you’re unsure about a necklace on your baby, why not try a pretty anklet ($22), instead?

The biggest question you must have, though: do they work? Well, when I put mine on my daughter she inevitably cheers up and becomes as sunshine-y as the beautiful ‘Oranges and Lemons’ beads on the necklace. Color me convinced.

I have been using an amber teething necklace for awhile now, and find it amazing! My little boy just cut his molars with not even a fever! The best ones on the market are Selkiedesigns without a doubt (I’ve tried a few) Sorry if I’m not allowed to name call, but they are so beautiful. They are Ozzie made as well, on silk, all natural and a safety clasp to boot (that’s what really sold me) And cheaper….yay!

These are great. I have a Chook Mook one and the quality is fantastic. You may be able to get cheaper versions, but the quality isn’t as good and they certainly won’t be double knotted. I would recommend Chook Mook ones over any others I have seen.

Wow thats a beautiful necklace, i prefer the amber clasp instead of silver ones though.

I buy mine from LittleMunchkins http://www.littlemunchkins.co.nz and they always have great specials on so I buy for friends now too. It works amazing well for my daughters teething, eczema and I swear she sleeps better at nights on the days she wears it. And theirs are fastened with the screw clasp which I believe is safer for babies than a metal clasp. They have adults amber jewellery now too.
