Teething Bling

Bling has become part of our everyday language and is used in a variety of settings. But for those of you not familiar with this term, the word 'bling' is a slang expression for jewellery. It is popular with the hip hop fraternity who use to refer to highly decorative or fancy jewellery such as necklaces, ear rings and bracelets.

What is teething bling?

Teething bling refers to a collection of highly ornate jewellery which is designed to be sucked or chewed by a teething baby. What this does is to prevent your little one from chewing on your expensive necklace or diamond bracelet. This jewellery is available as a series of pendants and bangles which are made from the same materials used for teething rings, teething toys and other similar items. They are non-toxic, safe, and look great. Basically, they look very similar to real jewellery but with one difference: they allow your baby to chew away in peace and without causing harm to himself or your precious jewellery.

Example of this is 'Smart Mom Teething Bling': a range of teething jewellery designed in the US which looks great on mums but can be handled and chewed by teething babies. This type of jewellery is designed to be worn by adults not children but if your little one gets her paws on your pendant then don't worry; she is unable to cause any harm by means of a 'break away'fastener. This fastener allows the pendant to come apart but without any risk to your little one. But don't leave your baby unattended with this jewellery. There is always a risk of something going wrong so place it out of her reach. Another plus factor is that babies are attracted by the colour and design of these pendants which will keep them amused for some time.
