Glow necklaces emit light till the chemicals are used up.

Everyone loves glow necklaces – from kids to grand parents
Glow necklaces are a hit among people of all age groups. Wearing glow necklaces is fun and exciting for kids. Since they are colorful, bright, highly comfortable, light weight, and cool they can be used safely by the kids in night parties.

People of all age groups can wear these glow necklaces for parties and other events. Moreover, these glow necklaces are of great help when worn while playing night golf, fishing, jogging in twilight or cheering your favorite team in a game.

Available in different colors and sizes
Glow necklaces are available in single colors like green, blue, orange, pink, purple, red and yellow. They are also available in multi colors like red-white-blue, red-green-blue, purple-green-yellow, etc.

Every color has its specific use like pink can be worn on Valentine’s Day or weddings, orange on Halloweens, red-white-blue on Independence Day, and yellow in emergency situations as it is brighter.

Nontoxic and nonflammable
Glow necklaces are very safe to use. The chemicals used in them are nontoxic. Even if the chemical comes in contact with the skin due to any leakage in the tube, it causes no harm. But it is always better to keep them out of children’s reach as their skin is very much sensitive and they might get irritated easily.
