Peacemaker Jewelrys teething pendants are BPA and phthalate free and are made from food-grade silicone so they are safe for babies to chew. Each necklace has a breakaway clasp and nylon cord for added safety. The word pacifier comes from a Latin word that means to make peace, to pacify. Our product is intended to pacify moms as well as children. In our experience, moms with small children are unable to wear jewelry because their little ones are always trying to grab, pull, and chew on it. Our products are specifically designed for those moms who want to be fashionable and provide something that is soothing and fun for their child. A mothers love never does end!
