Alternative Bling with a Giveaway **Closed**

We are a Canadian company based in Waterdown, Ontario and lucky parents to two beautiful children.

We didn't even know Baltic Amber Teething Necklaces existed until our son had cut most of his teeth but was struggling with his two year molars. It was around this time that we noticed some children at our play dates wearing adorable necklaces. We started hearing parents raving about the necklace’s ability to ease teething symptoms. We heard strong reviews from the parents saying things like "we've never had to use Tylenol" and "we didn't even know he cut his first tooth"! After some major "Googling" session on the topic, it was clear that our son NEEDED one of these necklaces but they were hard to come by in our area.

We began our hunt for a reliable supplier who sold only 100% authentic Baltic Amber and found one! We put a Baltic Amber necklace on our son and noticed an immediate improvement in his behaviour and mood. His red cheeks disappeared and we were officially sold!

Along came our daughter, who has worn a Baltic Amber necklace from an early time and WE are now the parents telling everyone we can that "we didn't even know she had cut her first two teeth!" It's pretty amazing!

We can also vouch that Baltic Amber offers adults relief from joint pain and muscle aches as we’ve experienced it firsthand!

It is our mission to spread the word about Baltic Amber’s healing properties, and offer our customers other unique, natural pieces of jewellery that can improve your health and well-being!

I am a huge believer of amber and Hazelwood necklaces! They work for Brandon and I so I decided that Kristina needed her own amber necklace! Alternative Bling was kind enough to send us one and she loves it, its pretty but not over the top for everyday wear, which is what they are meant for. I got her the adult sized one, at 8 and it a little bit long but it is fine as she doesn't put it in her mouth. Your toddler shouldn't be able to chew or suck on it so that age is more important for a good fit.

Its nice because now she has one like her brothers and doesn't feel like she isn't special like him with his special necklace. They are so easy to care for, you wear them 24/7 other than in the pool or hot tub so there is no on and off!


Baltic Amber is a fossilized tree resin (sap) from the Baltic Region that has been used as a healing tool for centuries. When Baltic Amber is worn against the skin, small amounts of succinic acid are absorbed by the body, reducing pain and inflammation. Baltic Amber is also said to help improve the immune system and calm the nervous system. It is also great for:

- Dental issues
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Joint pain and stiffness
- Headaches
- Frequent colds or illness
- Ear infections
- Stress and anxiety

I'm pregnant with our third child and definitely need to get an amber necklace for this one. I heard about them with my second child, but he was practically done teething.
