Trading Standards issues jewellery warning

Southend Standard: Images of the dangerous jewellery released by Essex County Council's Trading Standards team. Images of the dangerous jewellery released by Essex County Council's Trading Standards team.

PARENTS are being warned against using amber teething jewellery.

Trading Standards officers have tested the bracelets and anklets sold by two Essex-based internet companies.

The jewellery is designed for babies to help soothe them while they are teething.

But following intelligence officers found the jewellery was a strangle hazard and also broke easily, meaning tots could choke on it.

The businesses are now working closely with the Essex County Council trading standards team to get advice and recall the products.

A Trading Standards spokesman said it could not reveal which businesses were involved as a court case could be launched against the companies.

Buyers are being contacted directly as part of the recall.

  • Residents concerned they may be affected can contact the Citizen’s Advice Consumer Advice Service, which handles Trading Standards calls, on 08454 040506.

The beads aren't for chewing on.

My wife tell's me that they have some natural healing property. I suspect this may be hokum but as long as no harm comes to the child I don't mind.

Obviously in this case these particular bracelets are dangerous.

A screaming, dribbling tot in a lot of pain a joy of growth? I beg to differ.

I have chosen to let my baby wear amber as anklets. The beads are individually knotted so if it were to break ( highly unlikely) then only one would come off. The beads are no bigger than a small blueberry so are not a choking hazard. Any responsible adult with any sense knows that if worn as a necklace then it should be transferred to the ankle for sleeping.
They are not to be chewed but are worn to relieve the pain and discomfort of the symptoms of teething. Amber is a natural anti-inflammatory and I would rather go down the natural route to help my distressed child than give her copious amounts of Calpol.
There have been lots of fakes on selling sites which have been recalled but not all sellers should be tarred with the same brush. I have, and will continue to buy from the reputable seller I trust, as I know they have tested their products to the highest standard.

Before you judge, make sure you know all the facts: Not a single child has died from wearing an amber necklace but many have died from eating grapes and cherry tomatoes!

even on an ankle surely babys lift their legs/ankles to their mouths and will inevitably put these in their mouth our little one used to put his toes in his gob so would have no trouble with an anklet.

Amber also contains resin. It is rarely set in jewellery in its raw state. Resin is added to it to harden it and make it possible to create the classic pebble and cabochon shapes.

It is also quite brittle.

These are amazing! They are anklets which you secure safely under a sock and a babygrow. They are naturally healing and are proven to work, it is the parents responsibility to make sure the child does not chew or play with them which is why they should be secured, they can only be broken with force from an adult, a child would have difficulty doing this and shouldn't be playing with them in the first place, my little boy has 7 of them and has had absolutely no problems with teething whatsoever! Even the back ones! So red cheeks, no drooling, so swelling and no pain! Which means so calpol and no teething gels or teething toys and water filled teething toys which are themselves dangerous as the toys can pierce and brake!!
I love them and don't knock them unless you've tried them as you'll never know what your talking about!

These have been a god send for my son, teething has hardly bothered him (apart from when i forgot to put them back on after a bath).

: Those children who survived in those days when women popped out babies like they were shelling peas!

There are many fakes available on selling sites but the pieces I have are genuine. It is no way a strangulation risk around her ankle and is always covered with a baby grow or sock at night. Combined with a baby sleeping bag, she'd have to be a mini Houdini to get to it!

Anyhow, I feel I no longer have to justify my actions to a bunch of Philistines; most of whom haven't a clue what they're talking about. If you don't understand that statement then google it!
FYI: I do not sell amber : My children do not have their ears pierced as my child does not wear amber as a 'fashion accessory.' : The seller I buy from has her products hand-made and are not 'off the shelf." : Those children who survived in those days when women popped out babies like they were shelling peas!

The beads aren't for chewing on.

My wife tell's me that they have some natural healing property. I suspect this may be hokum but as long as no harm comes to the child I don't mind.

Obviously in this case these particular bracelets are dangerous.
I heard about the 'natural healing properties' too. The problem is that some people won't be aware of this and will assume that the baby is to use them like a teething ring.

Yes Do What & even cameron says his greatest achievment coming in as leader of our country is that he has given billions of pounds away in overseas aid ! !

I dont think the Brits want this even if that wicked individual Gypo Joe the toilet cleaner wants that ! ! he spouts how great the tories are yet he chooses a RACIST username to post with on that rag ! !
Hates alot & tries bullying posters who disagree with his perverted views ( he even supports gay sex in the open but just so happens to pretend that he is straight ! ! )

That way he is trying to portray that even straight people are supporting open air gay sex & then wants more immigration in to this country ! ! if thats what the tories want then give me BNP/UKIP any day ! !

Ok "k" .. well that toilet mouth Gypo-Joe can keep wanting as much as he likes, what he wants and what he gets are two different things......

The piece of cr@p is on that toilet paper even sat nite @10.30 so it shows you while others are out enjoying themselves that piece of cr@p is posting away his sick views in his million diff names Lol!!!!!

He started giving it that his son (yer rite!!) was beaten down on a train by "indigenous" train users (lies)

The rumours are that he got chased back to his motor after going on that gypsie site in Orpington? Star Road or something? they scared the cr@p outta him so he ran back to paper an got up the racist username to post under but there was a story in the Sun recently about someone using that racist term in norm language so im getting in touch with them to get that name banned once an for all!! i suggest everyone does the same!!!

Lets get the Gypo Joe name banned it is racist so we dont need it!!
