Why sterling silver jewellery for babies and children?
All of our beautiful creations are made from 925 sterling silver, an alloy that contains 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% other metals that add sturdiness to the designs. All of our pieces are free from nickel, which is known to cause skin allergies.
Silver jewellery is a practical choice
Sterling silver is nearly hypoallergenic and completely safe for children.
Silver jewellery makes the ideal gift for children as it is beautiful, long lasting and silver is a fantastic investment.
A child will quickly outgrow shoes, clothes and toys but jewellery lasts forever. Even when she outgrows it, she can keep it in her jewellery box as a memento.
Jewellery is unique and little bit magical.
There's something magical about jewellery. I remember always wanting to peek inside my own mother's jewellery box to see her collection of old broaches, rings, necklaces and other antiquities, many of them handed down from her mother.
Little fashionistas and 'mini-mes' love jewellery!
If you are a mother (or a grandmother or any caregiver for that matter), then you will be familiar with how much our little girls model after us. Jewellery, nail varnish (or felt tip pens anyone?) are all highly coveted by young girls and quality, well crafted sterling silver jewellery is a tasteful and contemporary gift that will satisfy even the hardest to please little magpie.
Sterling silver is affordable
Sterling silver is more suited to younger children, not only in terms of its appearance but also in terms of the cost. As a mum to an 8 year old girl, Mia, I am very familiar with her frequently losing or misplacing things. And while they may take every care to look it, there is always the risk it will be lost or misplaced. The good thing about choosing sterling silver jewellery is that it's a more affordable option for children and whilst not cheap like costume or ‘junk’ jewellery, it is a great option when you are searching for that special birthday or Christmas gift.
