SANTA ANA, Calif. (Aug. 14, 2018) – QALO, the brand behind the functional wedding ring worn by everyone from Dale Earnhardt Jr. to Steph Curry, is pleased to announce the expansion of its brand story and product line with the introduction of personalizable teething necklaces.
“From the beginning, QALO has been dedicated to building a community and fueling a lifestyle centered around family,” said KC Holiday, president and co-founder of QALO. “Commitment starts with marriage, and further develops as couples become new parents. QALO wants to meet people in these special moments and continue on life’s journey with them. We are excited to now offer products that will soothe babies, help families stay active and exploring, and allow parents to make the absolute most of every precious moment spent with their little ones. And keep an eye out for products for furry family members coming soon, too.”
QALO’s teething necklaces are functional and stylish and will keep babies’ occupied so parents can stay active and on-the-go. The necklaces are built with 100-percent food-grade silicone to ensure a soft and safe teething device, as well as a sensory tool for babies to touch and hold while eating or playing. QALO’s new teething necklaces are offered in three silhouettes: the V-Pendant (in four color ways), the Hexagon Bead (in three color ways) and the Dog Tag (in three color ways). All products are tested by a third-party lab to ensure they meet or exceed all current U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and FDA standards. The necklaces contain no BPA, PVC, phthalate, cadmium, lead or heavy metals. They feature a paracord material that is durable, lightweight and mildew-resistant, along with bead stoppers and a breakaway clasp for added safety.
Complementary to the teething necklace collection, QALO will also introduce a line of baby blankets. Created with baby’s warmth and comfort in mind, the blankets feature a unique hand-made Serape pattern fabric and ultra-soft Sherpa and are accented with a genuine leather patch. They measure 37 inches x 27 inches, and are available in three colors.
Teething necklaces and baby blankets can be personalized with up to 20 characters of text to accommodate a child’s name or a word or phrase.
QALO is a lifestyle brand founded on the basis of commitment, with marriage and family at the heart of everything the brand does. In 2012, founders Ted Baker and KC Holiday were each newly married and excited to show their commitment, however they both hated their rings which proved to be prohibitive in their active lifestyles. They discovered that a comfortable, functional alternative to the traditional wedding band did not exist. From there, QALO was born and remains the most popular functional wedding ring on the market. This year, the brand is proud to introduce products for babies and dogs, allowing the brand to take the next steps in life with its consumers.
