Amber Necklaces
 
My DD seems to have lost her amber necklace :cry: I'm looking to get a new one for her but don't know what kind to get? I read the lighter ones have more succinic acid. Which one should I get? :goodvibes:

Why light amber? While dark-cherry-colored amber is quite pleasing to the eye, it is our aim to provide you with items that offer the greatest potential for relief of discomfort.
http://www.softandcozybaby.com/item_...-Necklaces.htm

An excerpt:

Dark-cherry-colored amber contains the least amount of succinic acid of all the different colors of Baltic Amber. It has two to three times LESS succinic acid than our Milk & Butter or Custard colored amber! Consequently we have become reluctant to recommend pieces of jewelry that are made exclusively of dark cherry Baltic amber. (text from Inspired by Finn.)

God bless!

I love the ones that have a mixture of dark and light amber, like this one http://shop.diaperparties.com/Inspir...ion_p_487.html

For looks, I like the combo of light and dark. I thought you were just asking about the medicinal quality.

The teething necklace that DD is getting is a combo of the lemon amber, obsidian and amethyst.

DS3's necklace is a combo of three or four different shades, some light and some dark.

God bless!

OMG that sounds beautiful! Where are you getting that?

My understanding is that lighter unpolished amber is best.

Unpolished amber is stronger and works better. Hope you find something!

I ordered it from DS mama Funky Birdie Boutique
Her DS thread: http://www.diaperswappers.com/forum/...d.php?t=757063

Her website: http://funkybirdieboutique.webs.com/

She has DS mama discounts... I know she does free shipping over $25 (I think it's $25) and maybe another discount on top of that? I'm not sure. I think I paid $19 for the amber necklace that was a gift for someone else that was just different colors of amber, I think my DD's necklace (with the Amethyst and Obsidian) was $23.95 (the use of stones other than amber is an additional $4.95 for the infant teething necklace that I ordered).

My friend received the necklace for her DS today, I think mine should get here tomorrow. I'll get a picture for you when it gets here.

Wendy was great to work with. Awesome customer service and quick to complete/ship my orders. She even got the first necklace shipped out for me since it was a gift while we were still working on my order.

God bless!

I forgot to mention that prices I listed above included the extender clasps for each necklace.

God bless!
