New moms, like myself, have reluctantly retired our everyday jewelry box items for a spell until our little ones are no longer apt to drool on the diamonds (or yank them from our necks, as the case may be). But mommy bloggers-turned-entrepreneurs are buzzing about a new jewelry trend that will bring the bling back to our post-baby lives – teething jewelry!
If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em.
Made from stuff that includes letters moms like to see (FDA-approved, BPA-free), teething jewelry replaces your colored gemstones with colorful silicone made into necklace, bracelet and key chain styles.
My favorite hails from Smart Mom Jewelry – a donut-shaped pendant that comes in every color of the rainbow (I’m partial to trendy turquoise for spring – especially with the $19.10 price tag). The ‘smart moms’ who started this company have a patent pending for the miracle gems and even have a cadre of celebs convinced – from Angela Basset to uber-mom, Tori Spelling.
According to a recent ABC News report, there are many other hot teething jewelry sites on the rise, including:
