Where does it come from?
A traditional ‘Grace & Favour’ amber necklace imported from the Baltic region
Grace & Favour Safety standards
The thread is knotted after each bead; if the necklace should break , only one bead will come off and the beads should not scatter.
The clasp is made from an amber/plastic, with a plastic screw mechanism. The clasp is laboratory tested to release if excessive force is applied to the necklace, which ensures the highest safety. Unlike traditional clasps used on children’s necklaces (parrot clasp and ring), which do not release, they rely on the ring or necklace breaking to release.
Amber necklaces are made for wearing, not for chewing! Amber will crack and break under too much pressure.
