BlissLiving.com Tip: Most babies and toddlers won't be heading out for a night on the town any time soon. So why would a baby need jewelry? Baby jewelry is rarely meant for everyday wear. Instead, jewelry for babies exists to commemorate a brief and beautiful time in a child's life. Babyhood is precious and fleeting. Parents and loved ones give the gift of baby jewelry to create a family heirloom.
Baby jewelry makes a wonderful gift for babies who will be participating in weddings, portraits, or other special family events. Delicate baby bracelets and sweet, tiny crosses are also appropriate for baptisms and christenings.
For older toddlers and preschoolers, the first piece of jewelry can be an exciting step toward becoming a “big girl.” Remember to measure small wrists accurately to ensure a snug and safe fit when giving bracelets to small children. At family gatherings and during the holidays, your little one will feel like a princess in her own special jewelry.
