Jenny came up with this idea while on maternity leave with her second child in early 2010. He was a big teether and grabbed at everything, then the idea struck her. After months of research and development, GUMIGEM® was born. It is really intended to be a nice piece of jewellery for mum that bridges the gap from when babies start to grab at necklaces, until they understand and can follow instruction that this is not the done thing!
GUMIGEM® is a UK based family run business who produce silicone jewellery, silicone teething toys, aimed to provide mummy with a stylish accessory that baby can also entertain their hands with. The jewellery is made from silicone (like you would find a dummy teat, teething toy or baby spoon to be made of) , so is soft and flexible. Our silicone meets the required standards and is BPA, PVC, Lead, Latex and Phthalate free.
GUMIGEM ® can withstand high temperatures, be easily washed in hot water or placed in the dishwasher. The necklaces come on a long cord, so there is plenty of reach for baby, and for extra comfort and safety, each necklace has a breakaway clasp. A thoughtful gift for new mummies, adorable aunties and gorgeous grannies! Many nursing necklaces are made from hard beads which many dentists feel is not ideal for emerging teeth due to the potential risk of wear and damage.
