The Look for Less: Chewbeads Teething Necklaces + Review

Chewbeads look for less


I'd always wanted to try a stylish teething necklace for my kids but was put off by the high price, and I worried about the quality with lower priced versions (was the plastic safe? would the beads come off?).



Fortunately, one of my friends lent me her Chewbeads necklace (similar) once her son was past the teething stage so I could test it out (or rather, so my little one could test it out) "risk-free". With kids, you just never know if they're going to use/like something until you try it.

My LO did use it sparingly, but I'm still not sure it was enough to justify the nearly $40 pricetag. The beads also got really tangled in my hair and would rip out strands of my hair (a problem my friend also experienced), so I never actually wore the beads but would let him hold the necklace instead while I monitored him, say, parked in the stroller or sitting in a high chair at a restaurant.

That said, I think Chewbeads make a great gift for new moms, and if you purchase from Nordstrom, you're getting free shipping and free returns, plus the assurance you're getting a quality product, backed by a generous return policy.

But baby gear can really start to add up, which is why I was happy to spot a budget-friendly assortment of teething necklaces during my last Target run. I'm not sure how long they've carried these, but I saw some great chewable jewelry options by the brands Nuby and Itzy Ritzy all under $20.

From bangles ($6.99) to stylish pendants, there's a teething bauble for every style.

My sister-in-law has this necklace ($8.99) and my nephew seems to love it - I saw him happily chomping and chewing and playing with it on and off for the longest time! Plus, it looked so cute with my SIL's outfit. You'd never guess it was a teether!

Below, I've rounded up 6 teething jewelry picks starting at just $6.99. Plus scroll down to see a few in-store pics of these teethers on the racks at Target.

Do you own any teething jewelry? Would you recommend them to a friend?
