ARK’s Diamond Chew Necklace is a great solution for anyone who needs to chew. Use it as a safe alternative to chewing on shirt sleeves, collars, pencils, fingers, nails, etc. to help calm, focus, and self-regulate. Measuring about 2 x 2″ and .35″ thick, these diamonds are among our widest chew pendants – perfect for those who prefer chewing with their pre-molars and/or front teeth (for more slender options that reach the back molars, see ARK’s Brick Stick and/or Krypto-Bite).
By using this chew tool, the user can receive tactile (touch) input on the lips, tongue, gums and cheek, and the chewing and sucking motions provide proprioception (deep pressure) to the jaws. This input can assist to regulate one’s nervous system and organise the information that our body receives day to day.
ARK’s Diamond comes in 3 colour-coded toughness levels:
- Magenta – Standard, this is the softest Diamond option (the chewiest level, but still firm) recommended for mild to moderate chewing.
- Hot Pink – XT (firmer, but still chewy), for moderate chewing.
- Lavender – XXT (the most firm), for those who like to chew on firm / fairly rigid items. Also the longest lasting level for very avid chewing.

Caution: This product is not a toy. The clasp and cord are not intended for chewing. Contains small parts that may pose a choking hazard. Not recommended for children under 5 years. Although these chew tools are sturdy and durable, no chew tool is indestructible. Wear/tear may be expected given the nature of the intended use. How long they last is typically equal to the amount and intensity of the chewing, as well as other variables (such as jaw strength, stress/anxiety levels, if other sensory strategies are in place, etc.). While for some people a chew tool will last forever, for others with heavy/aggressive oral needs, they may go through it very quickly. Please supervise at all times and replace if necessary if the item shows signs of wear and tear.
