Amber de Lux Wellness Jewelry | Baltic Amber Necklaces, Bracelets and Anklets

 

Grech & Co.'s Amber de lux jewelry, made of Baltic Amber and genuine Semi-Precious gemstones, are the perfect heirloom jewelry. Used as the go-to drug free solution for aches and pains, Baltic amber is known to promote health and vitality. Worn for aesthetic pleasure or healing purposes, each piece makes a life-long sentimental item that, with proper care, can remain within the family for generations to come.

 

Handcrafted in Lithuania, our jewelry is made from raw amber that comes only from Kaliningrad in Russia, Gdansk in Poland, and Ukraine.  Baltic amber has been worn throughout history for thousands of years all over the world. It is no secret why Baltic amber is still around today! 

 

With larger beads at 6-8 mm a piece, Grech & Co.'s Adult Amber de lux are more effective than other adult amber on the market, featuring the smaller children's sized beads. Larger beads means higher levels of succinic acid, thus effectively

 

  • reducing irritability, drooling, itchy-red gums and cheeks associated with teething.
  • reducing the occurrence of migraines or headaches, and pain resulting from them.
  • aiding in depression.
  • alleviating pain from arthritis and carpal tunnel.

    With amber, more is better.  After all, you can't overdose on amber.

     

    FAQ's

    Q: How long does it take to work?

    A: It can take up to 10-12 days to show effects.  Don't give up if you are not seeing any effects. Keep in mind that although you may not see the effect in one area, for example drooling of a teething baby, it still may be effective in other areas such as less overall pain and fussiness, improved skin and cheeks, and better sleep. If you are still doubtful after 12 days, try cleaning it and charging it in the sun for 3 hours and put it back on.  Don't hesitate to contact us, if you have any questions or concerns.  We are here for you.

     

    Q: Why does it need to be 'Baltic' amber.

    A: Amber found in the Baltic regions have the highest levels of succinic acid.  If you are wearing amber purely for aesthetic purposes, then it does not matter where your amber is from.  However, if you are wearing amber for its healing properties, then it should be 'Baltic' amber.

     

    Q: There are different designs. Do they all do the same job?

    A: Yep. Although the ones with semi precious stones offer other metaphysical properties, which might be better for older toddlers and children. For teething it is recommended an all amber piece.

     

    Q: I have heard lighter colored amber is better.  Is it true?

    Some people have reported lighter and raw (unpolished) amber to have a slightly higher percentage of succinic acid, but this would only be by a very small percentage. We recommend choosing the amber that you are most attracted to.

     Q: How often should i wash it?

    A: Wash it at least once a month or when you see a film building up on the beads. The objective is to clean the outer part of the amber so the succinic acid can be easily released.  

     

    Q: Does it help with stubbornness for 3 year olds?

    A: :). It is said Baltic Amber helps with overall calmness and ease of stress.  Succinic acid in Baltic amber is said to improve vitality and strengthen the immune system, which in turn will ward off colds and illness. Adults wear amber too for its calming and health promoting properties.  Amber is not only for teething little ones. If you know about chakras and metaphysical properties, amber is considered a highly valued healing and protective crystal. Read more about Wellness Jewelry for children and Adults here

     

    Q: Does having a necklace used as a bracelet have the same benefits as when its worn as a necklace?

    A: Yep, because its the same amount of amber on the skin. It does not matter how its worn, as long as its worn directly on the skin.  A necklace double wrapped will be more effective than a bracelet, as it is more than twice the amount of amber. The more amber - the more effective.

     

    Q. Can you wear too much amber?

    A: No, you cannot overdose on amber.

     

    Q: Does it matter where on the body it is worn?

    A: Some believe the closer to the area of the body where the ailment is, the better effect. Otherwise, no, as long as its directly on the skin, it should have the same effect.

     

    Q: Does it get old or stop working?

    A:  Amber does not lose its succinic acid which is the healing agent found in Baltic amber.  If you avoid wearing it in water and make efforts to take care of the thread, your jewelry pieces will stay intact.   See our Clean and Care instructions. We recommend cleaning then recharging your jewelry once a month, in the sun for 3 hours, to reactivate the oils to the surface of the beads (especially after a bad bout of teething, drooling, illness).

     

    Q: So 'amber' is the stone from which these bracelets are made?

    A: It is a tree resin that has formed over an estimated 50 million years and is found washed ashore the Baltic regions. 

     

    HOW TO SIZE AND MEASURE YOUR PERFECT FIT

     

    For health and healing purposes, bear in mind your jewelry is to be worn directly on the skin, as opposed to over clothing.

     Children's amber that is too loose can slide off the wrist or ankle.  In this case, please secure anklets with a sock over it and supervise children when jewelry is worn.

    • Amber is effective for healing purposes when it is worn directly against the skin. 
    • Although we thread each bead individually with the highest quality TYTAN 10 thread, with time and wear, thread may stretch a small amount - **keep this in mind when sizing.

      When choosing the best size necklace for your child, measure the area to be worn:

      • Necklaces should have a 2 finger fit between the neck and the measuring device. 
      • Necklaces should never be able to slip over the chin and into the mouth. Amber teething jewelry are not for chewing on, but for direct skin contact only.

       

      Children's bracelets and anklets are best fitted with a small 1 finger fit between the skin and the measuring device.  

       

      QUALITY PROMISE

      DETAIL & TECHNIQUE

        Amber de lux uses only the finest genuine natural Baltic amber beadsAll of our jewelry is made from natural Baltic amber. Each bead is made from one piece of amber. The only treatment our amber receives is by autoclave, heating and polishing.  The quality of our jewelry can be seen in the finish of each bead. 

        Grech & Co. uses only certified genuine Baltic amber beads.  Each piece is tested individually and supported with a certificate ensuring genuine Baltic amber beads. When you receive your Amber de lux, you will have a certificate guaranteeing your genuine natural Baltic amber articles and a signature linen bag to preserve your amber jewelry in. 

        We ensure quality in detail through the finish of each individual bead: our beads do not break easily, are round, the holes for threads are in the middle, they have a strong gloss finish, and their color is bright.  Combining these details gives a good measure of quality, as the round shape shows the raw amber has been cut by skilled craftsmen and tumbled with high end machinery. Center holes point to experienced drillers and high quality drills. Our amber's strength in withstanding breakage while maintaining a nice light color, reflects a well balanced autoclave technique. Such strong gloss finish and bright colors can only be achieved by polishing beads for 48-72 hours straight. All of this work and effort is put into each Amber de lux bead. 

         

        BAROQUE BEADS

          Amber de lux jewelry uses only baroque shaped Baltic amber beads. The smoothness of each bead this shape offers, and warmth that Baltic amber naturally embodies, creates a comfortable wear with no irritation against the wearers skin. Worn directly against the skin for maximum health benefits, individual amber beads will meet the body's natural temperature therefore creating a subtle presence for the wearer, and allowing for a pleasurable and stylish wear. 

           

          TYTAN THEAD

            Strung on quality TYTAN 10 thread. Each bead is hand knotted individually. In the event of breakage, beads will not scatter and be individually exposed. All articles of jewelry are secured with a plastic screw clasp which will pop off one side of the thread in the case of relative increased pressure.

             

            AMBER COLORED SCREW CLASPS

             

              Through the matching color of clasp to amber, it's natural presence is preserved .  Using screw clasps as opposed to metal clasps prevents skin irritation and possible allergic reaction. They also make for a safer wear with its thread release function. 

              These techniques, detail, and know how, is what makes Amber de lux amber of the highest quality.

Did you knowBaltic amber necklaces, bracelets and anklets are worn by adults for stress relief and pain relief from migraines and arthritis?

              WHAT IS WELLNESS JEWELRY?

              Magnetic jewelry, essential oil diffuser jewelry, and gemstone / crystal jewelry, are all classified under 'Wellness Jewelry'.  Baltic amber is also under the gemstone / crystal category, however it stands alone in its make up and origin, as well as its power and effect. How so?

              WHAT IS BALTIC AMBER?

              Amber from the Baltic has been around for more than an estimated 48 million years!! Incredible isn't it? Having existed for ages and ages, its no wonder it's power for healing, wellness, and vitality.  There are two aspects to why Baltic amber is an effective pain reducing entity, as well as a vitality, wellness, and pleasant- energy booster. With it's existence consisting of so many millions of years, the vibrational energies within each bead are extremely high.  The alternative and more commonly discussed aspect is what is found within Baltic amber, called 'succinic acid'.  

              Embodied in Baltic amber, is a healing agent called 'Succinic Acid'.  Baltic amber, also called 'Succinite" is known to contain higher levels of succinic acid than amber from any other region. Natural Baltic amber is not a stone, but a fossilized tree resin that has been formed over millions of years and found washed ashore of the Baltic regions.  It is warm to the touch, very light in weight, and therefore very comfortable to wear. In fact, throughout history, Baltic amber jewelry was worn by nobility and royalty. Ground resin from Baltic amber was, and still is, used in natural healing remedies. 

              HOW DOES BALTIC AMBER WORK?

              So how does Baltic amber help to ease pain and promote vitality?

Throughout the world, for many generations, Baltic amber has been worn as a natural teething relief for teething babies.

              When used as a drug free intervention for teeth related symptoms, Baltic amber can offer relief from drooling and itchy, sore, and inflamed gums and cheeks. This in turn can reduce fussiness and irritability in the inflicted while improving overall wellbeing. But its benefits go much further. Recognized by allopathic medicine, parents choose Baltic amber for their babies and older children as well, for: 

              • calming effects on the body
              • reducing inflammation

              How Savvy Moms 'Mom the Day' in Style (and savvy ladies too!)

              How Savvy Moms 'Mom the Day' in Style (and savvy ladies too!)

              (This iconic image of John, Jacqueline and Caroline Kennedy was shot in Hyannis Port, Mass., in July 1958. (Estate of Jacques Lowe))

              All moms know how important it is to get dressed up every once in a while.  It helps us to feel - renewed and REFINED. That refreshing shower, bit of makeup, and cute outfit makes us a little more fierce in facing the day. But, every-once-in-a-while is simply not enough. It is too easy to get caught up in the everyday grind of motherhood.  As a mom to 3 kids including a baby and two toddlers, I really do know this all to well.  

              Grech & Co. vintage and mod inspired silicone necklaces, let you feel REFINED everyday, for all occasions - day or night.  Our necklaces have a classic, sophisticated, and chic essence to each piece. Mirroring the savviest designs from eras past, you will find only the most fashionable styles worn by starlets and icons. Think 1920's Pearl Necklace of the Flapper Girl Era, Art Deco, Jackie O', Classic Mod and Boho Chic.  Of course these are gorgeous for women to wear, but what does a statement necklace have to do with motherhood?

               If you are a mom, aunty, grandmother, or friend of someone with a teething baby, OR someone who likes inspired beaded necklaces, Read On

              As a mom to a young child, you may be asking yourself, "Why on earth would I wear a necklace with a baby? Won't the necklace just break eventually anyway when they yank it off my neck? And babies put everything in their mouth..."

              Imagine sitting at lunch - A much needed girls lunch. On your lap or in the highchair next to you is your babbling little bundle of joy, arms flailing around, pat patting (sounds more like BANG BANGING) the table. Fingers in mouth, drooling and grabby hands in full effect - a combination of it all.  

              Do you remember the toy Stretch Armstrong?  I swear my 9 month old has Stretch Armstrong arms, she can reach an item on the other end of the table! And I know she isn't the only one. Maybe you came prepared to lunch with some toys and snacks - i pad on emergency reserve. Within the first 15 minutes, snacks and toys end up sprinkling the floor below. Baby Einstein quickly flashes in your mind but you desperately push it away, for you promised yourself the i pad would be your last resort.

              So, once the appeal of bending down over and over again to pick up said toy, wears off, you find yourself left with the "stand and sway"- baby on hip, trying desperately to maintain the last moments of normal conversation before lunch is cut short.

              BUT

              What if you could sit Stretch Armstrong on your lap to quietly and calmly entertain, and soothe and relieve those irritated sore gums?  Remember that necklace your girlfriends complimented you on, on your way in? That necklace is also baby friendly! It can serve as natural teething relief for little one to enjoy while on your lap or hip, in a restaurant, at church, in line at the market, and on-the-go.

              Welcome cuddles & conversation & and getting things done!!

              The secret is out. Momma's you CAN wear beautiful necklaces with classic statement style, and Babies, you can tug and chew on mommas jewels!

              Baltic Amber Jewelry:  How to clean and care for your precious gems

              Baltic Amber Jewelry: How to clean and care for your precious gems

              Your baby has been wearing their amber since before they could sit up or even walk or talk. It has carried them through the toughest times of babyhood - teething.  

              Baltic amber is not partial however to teething.

              For us adults, suffering from migraines, stress, depression, carpal tunnel and other ailments can be debilitating at times.  When you finally find something that actually helps, you want to hold on to it forever.  With Grech & Co. Amber de lux Baltic amber, YOU CAN!

               

               

              Through proper care, your precious gems can become a treasured family heirloom and wellness solution, passed on to siblings and the next generation to come.

              HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR AMBER:

              Amber is a valuable property and should be treated as such, therefore we provide each amber purchase with a linen pouch to store your beloved amber in. Take care to keep separate from other contents though, to avoid scratching or breakage.

              In caring for your jewelry:

              • Wash you jewelry at least 1 time a month.
              • Wash amber in warm water (without any soaps or chemicals). With a soft cloth, remove any film or build up that may cover the beads. This will allow the healing agent (succinic acid) to resurface and easily enter the body. 
              • Allow your amber to air dry for 3 hours in the sun.  Do not over expose however.  The heat will recharge your amber and help to "reactivate" it.
              • You can polish your amber with olive oil to bring more shine if you wish.
              • Do not expose to chemicals, chlorines, soaps, make up, or perfumes.

              • It is best to remove amber when entering water, such as a bath or swimming in the ocean.  Although our TYTAN -10 thread is of the highest quality, exposure to water can wear it down over time.
              • Amber de lux has a clasp safety feature that causes the thread of one clasp end to pop off and release under strong pressure.  Be careful not to stretch your jewelry too tightly, to avoid activating this safety feature.
