Amber teething necklaces: Amber alert! Moms are adorning their babies with amber necklaces to ward off teething discomfort. The concept is an ancient one; gemstones have been used for centuries to heal many kinds of ailments. To some, however, the Flintstones-style duds appear to be an obvious and alarming choking hazard.
