Then again, that last one doesn't really apply if it's Teething Bling. Teething Bling jewelry was made for baby to chew on. Consisting of safety-tested nylon string and a commonly-used, medical-grade, food-safe silicone pendant (or beads), Teething Bling is safe for your teething youngster to gum away on! The silicone used is the same material found in many teething toys and other baby products, too. It's not some weird new substance you've never encountered!
Teething Bling contains no harmful chemicals: no phthalates, BPAs, PVCs, lead or latex. All their products are CPSIA compliant, carry the European CE mark for safety and are FDA approved. Additionally, pendants also come with a breakaway clasp as an added safety feature (though you should never put the necklaces around baby).
So how much do babies really like these items? Are they really all that convenient over a teething toy? Yes and yes. Teething Bling was generous enough to send me a pendant and gemstone necklace to try out. I received Grey Gemstones and a Moonstone Donut Pendant (both pictured above). I was actually getting ready to head out to the store when I got these, so I did a quick wash on them and put on the grey gemstones necklace.
(The fact these were all taken from this outing means they were all taken with my phone and thus aren't the best quality photos.)

So why was this better than a regular teething toy? Simple: It never ended up getting thrown on the floor. I swear I have cleaned teething toys more often than anything else! They love chewing them, but they love throwing them, too. The necklace stayed put and didn't get dirty. Yay!

Before our shopping trip was over, my husband was very hungry and asked me to run in to get a burrito at Chipotle. Seeing as how we fed Bobble before we left (and Squiggle is on mama's milk still), I thought it was a great idea. I ran in and waited to place an order. As I stepped up to the counter, the woman/girl on the other side of the counter raved about my necklace. She was talking about how cool it was, and asked where she could get one. I had not OWNED this necklace more than a couple hours and was already getting compliments!
This jewelry really impressed me! I am not a big jewelry person (literally, I like small stones/gems/beads etc.) so I was a bit self conscious wearing a larger bead out. (Yes, I know... silly thing to be worrying about, eh?) Being complimented so quickly really helped with that. I thought it looked nice, but I've never been one someone turns to for fashion advice. A complete stranger wanting to know where I got my necklace? Yeah, that did the trick! They have so many styles and colours that it's hard not to find something that would be perfect for your wardrobe, too!
Bobble also loves them. He likes to wear the pendant necklace and try to get Squiggle to chew on it. It's so cute! I might have to get him one of the fish pendants so he can have his own!
My husband has worn my Teething Bling, too! Granted, he didn't go out of his way to find it, but when I had to hand him Squiggle for something and I was wearing it, I would just put it around his neck so she had something to play with until I came back. He's a good sport. (He wasn't going to smile for the picture, though!) Perhaps I should have gotten him a Babe Magnet tie! (Actually, he never wears ties, so I have better odds of getting him to wear necklaces.)
