Materials And Safety

What makes Crown Chewels different from all other teething necklaces on the market?

Most teething necklaces and teethers are made of silicone. This food-safe, medical-grade silicone is free of lead, cadmium, BPA, PVC and phthalates. 

I wanted to take this a step further. Aside from the high-quality silicone teething pieces, I’ve added additional components that are safe for baby to chew and play with. This is based on Montessori principles and the idea of treasure baskets. My daughter loved chewing our wooden cooking spoons so I incorporated untreated wood into some of my designs. Semi-precious stones are excellent pain relievers because of their cool feel. 

There are also other elements found in nature such as mother of pearl, seashells, and buffalo horn, all of which are naturally non-toxic and safe while offering a variety of textures that babies will love to explore. 


All materials in a Crown Chewels accessory have been deemed safe to use by European Union toy standards and are safe for babies to chew. The wooden elements are finished with natural oils and are not chemically treated. Metals such as gold and silver are of the highest quality. Semi-precious stones come from minerals that are not based on lead and are not associated with any mineral based on lead.

Crown Chewels accessories are intended to be worn by adults, NOT by children. They should not be left with a child or worn by a child. Crown Chewels accessories are NOT toys but we test our products according to the European Union’s toy safety standards.

We test for:

  • Strength – our necklaces will not break when tugged and pulled.
  • Chemical Composition – we promise, no nasties!
  • Choke Test – Crown Chewels accessories are carefully measured and pass the choke tube test.

Crown Chewels accessories are tested by a credited international laboratory. Tests include:

  • Test for lead, cadmium, and other elements under EU legislation EN 71 Part 3 – “Specification For Migration Of Certain Elements.”
  • Physical and Construction test under EU legislation EN 71 Part 1 – “Mechanical and Physical Properties.” This test includes the choke tube test.
  • Bisphenol-A (BPA), Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC), and Phthalate test methods as per United States Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008 (H.R.4040).
