Cute Designs Children Will Love For Special Occasions or Just Because

Just as it would seem inappropriate to dress children in clothing better suited for adults, the style of jewelry for children should also be appropriate. Sweet and cute designs with animals or shapes add a touch of charm while still looking like finery. Choose pieces that have colorful enamel to add extra appeal for children. Such jewelry pieces are good to gift for holidays or to give just because. After all, children smile in awe of jewelry just as much as adults. For them, it is truly a special gift.

Children Are The Future: Gift Them Jewelry Mementos For Life

Often times, the jewelry a person is given as a child becomes one of the most precious pieces in their collection. Even when they outgrow the tiny bracelet or ring, it stays in their jewelry box fondly. Years later that person can pull out the same jewelry they were given and gift it to their own child. The pride and wonder a child feels when a parent says, “My dad gave this to me when I was your age, and I want you to have it now,” is something no video game or doll dream house can ever measure up to.

Examples of Fine Jewelry Memento Gifts

  • · Gold bracelets and pendants
  • · Small diamond earrings
  • · Children sized rings (these often can be worn as a pinky ring when they grow up)
  • · “Add A Pearl” necklaces (a girl is given a pearl at each holiday, birthday, or special occasion until she has a complete strand to wear on her wedding day or any fine occasion)

Note: A great way to really make a fine jewelry gift like this special is to have it personalized or engraved.

Religious Children’s Gifts For Baptisms, Bar Mitzvahs, Bat Mitzvahs, Communions & Spiritual Protection

At milestone points in a child’s religious journey, it is appropriate to give a gift that represents that faith and your wish for that child to be under the protection of a higher power. From crosses and crucifixes to Stars of David and guardian angels, religious jewelry comes in all types and styles, though pendants are the most common. Giving a religious fine jewelry piece also makes a child feel like he or she is accepted and part of a greater community, giving them a sense of belonging, hope, and faith.
