The only thing the amber teething necklace has done for us is provide hope in the beginning. After a few days of DD wearing it with no relief in sight, the hope faded. I'll put it on her every once in awhile because it is pretty.
I second this!!!
I agree that it is a very pretty piece of jewelry.
I got myself one too, and I don't notice a difference for myself or for LO when we wear them.
That being said, everyone is different. It seems they work well for some people. I think if you're ok with it just ending up being a necklace, go for it. If you really want something to help with teething, buy something else.

Dear God, Since I couldn't hold my little one in my lap and tell him about you, could you hold him in your lap and tell him about me?
SoxFan777:Can you use ANY amber necklace or just the special ones? I have a crapload of amber stuff...
So long as the amber touches your skin and isn't set in metal-- one special thing about amber teething necklaces is that they are knotted between each bead and have a screw clasp, both for safety. But there's nothing special about the amber itself.
