Six Ways To Choose The Right Jewellery For Your Children

Finding it difficult to find the right jewellery for your child’s outfit? Then here are a few tips for you to consider when buying jewellery for your child.

Safety comes first and foremost when buying jewellery for your child, so look out for the relevant safety standards on the pieces that you’re considering buying. All pieces should meet the standards assessed by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service. If you’re not sure what to look out for, there is advice available about the relevant safety standards items should meet on the government website.

Classic material
Look out for jewellery made from classic materials such as gold or sterling silver, this way your child will have quality pieces that will endure and be versatile enough to be worn with a range of different outfits. Though it is true to say that different people react differently to the same materials, by buying jewellery made out of quality materials, like precious metals, your child is less likely to suffer from irritated skin or an allergic reaction. Also, by looking out for jewellery made from quality materials, you’re less likely to make an impulse purchase of poor quality, that child may well only wear once.

If you’re choosing jewellery that’s not only for an outfit but for a special occasion too, like a landmark birthday or christening, consider something a little more unusual and offbeat that is less likely to be duplicated.

Jewellery that will last
Choose jewellery that will last as your child grows, like the expandable silver anklets. Made from solid sterling silver, they can later be worn as a stylish bracelet - meaning your child will have a gift they can enjoy for years to come. Worn as a bracelet, your child will be able to enjoy this jewellery right through until their teenage years.

In addition, if you were to buy a pendant or locket for your child, you could simply add an extender chain at a later date or change the length of the chain on which it sits. Hand-in-hand with buying jewellery that will last from a sizing point of view; look out for well-crafted items too.

Reflects their interests
When choosing jewellery for your child, you might want to find a piece that reflects their interests like a charm in the shape of a ballet shoe, ice skate, horse or book. Moreover, buy jewellery that incorporates charms, and your child will have a piece they can add to and enjoy over their lifetime, as their interests evolve.

Also, you might want to choose a piece of jewellery for your child that reflects a particular sentiment or spiritual message, like a St Christopher medallion, that would wish them well on their life’s journey or an ‘Om’ symbol representing good luck. On the other hand, you might want to consider a locket or silver orb that can contain photographs of special moments or those you hold most dear.

So there you have a few factors to consider when choosing jewellery for your child’s outfit, we hope it will make your choice easier in future.

  1. Jewellery I think often comes via a gift. Sometimes for a Christening etc. It seems that good quality jewellers should be providing such information in leaflet / booklet form :- Maybe alongside their jewellery items for children. A catalogue would be a good idea, as allows customer to browse at their leisure, possibly at home. Often catalogues are passed on to other family and friends so is a way of advertising and increasing custom for Businesses.

  2. I always think of jewellery as something to be held onto for sentiment. My daughter has a couple of bits that I had when I was little and I'll pass my Tiffany jewellery and gold down to her xx

  3. I've never bought my daughter any jewellery, nor has she been ever given any but I will perhaps give her a special piece for her birthday when she is older as she loves wearing costume jewellery now. All I buy her is cheap Disney princess type necklaces and bracelets which she loves. I don't think she would appreciate something more expensive and special yet.

  4. My girls don't wear jewellery,Mollie is 16 weeks so to young and Megan isn't interested, my mum bought her a silver peppa pig bangle but she kept taking it off so its in the box safe, she does want earrings though but doesn't have her ears pierced she wants them done in august for her 5th birthday which I'm debating xxx

  5. I like this a lot. Thank you for sharing. I'm always looking for upcycles like this.
