We make all of our necklaces with extreme care and attention to ensure that they meet our exacting standards; we never send anything out that we wouldn’t be more than happy for our son to chew on and fiddle with.

PLEASE NOTE THESE ITEMS ARE NOT TOYS. The Necklaces are designed for adults and should never be worn by children or infants. The teethers and dummy clips are designed as accessories and therefore should never be left with a child unsupervised. The cords, ribbons, clasps and clips are not intended to be chewed on or put in a child’s mouth. Children with teeth may be able to chew or tear beads, wooden rings and wooden teethers. Please inspect items for damage before each use and please stop use immediately and discard if damage is found. Small objects, beads and cords can present choking and strangulation hazards to young children so please supervise them at all times while using these products. Please clean the items before first use and regularly after.

Can I change the length of my Teething Necklace?

You can easily shorten your necklace yourself. Simply undo the breakaway clasp and pull the cord out. Undo the knots and retie them at your desired length. Snip off the excess cord and you are ready to go.

To make your necklace longer, I’m afraid you will need to send it back to us to be restrung. If you have any queries or would like some more information on this, please email us at noahsarknecklaces@outlook.com

Can my baby wear the teething jewellery?

NO! The Necklaces and Bracelets are designed for adults to wear while the child or infant interacts with them but should never be worn by children or infants. The long cords can be a strangulation risk and adult supervision is needed at all times while little ones play with it. The beads are perfect for tiny mouth to chew on but never leave a child alone with a teething necklace.

The teethers and dummy clips are designed as accessories and therefore should never be left with a child unsupervised. The cords, ribbons, clasps and clips are not intended to be chewed on or put in a child’s mouth.

Which Teething item is best for my baby?

That is very much a personal choice. All our teething accessories are designed to be attractive and engaging for little ones as well as stylish and comfortable for Mum and Dad. Personally, I found when Noah was tiny, a shorter necklace that he could hold while breastfeeding was best, but as he grew older and started teething, a longer necklace was more comfortable as he could chew on it while being carried on my hip. He has always had a dummy clip as we were constantly hunting for dummies he had spat out and he loves his Teether Toy which comes everywhere with us.

How do I clean and care for my Teething Accessories?

Just wipe the beads and clasps clean with warm soapy water, it’s as easy as that. The silicone and wood are naturally anti-bacterial so no need to sterilise them. If you do want to give it an extra clean, wipe the beads with sterilising liquid and thoroughly wipe clean with water. Allow to dry before you wear or use them. DO NOT submerge the Teething Accessories in water or put them in a steriliser or dishwasher. This will permanently damage the item.

Do you have any stockists?

No, not at the moment but it is something we are looking into. If you are interested in stocking our items, please email us at noahsarknecklaces@outlook.com

Will your Teething Necklace encourage my baby to play with other necklaces?

Let’s be honest, until your little one understands instructions and actually obeys them, they are going to grab and play with anything they can get their hands on, especially something as tempting as a sparkly pendant right next to their face! My advice is simple, put away your precious jewellery until your little ones are a bit bigger and indulge in some stylish, baby and mummy friendly teething jewellery to keep you both happy.
