We all know that feeling…a friend has had a beautiful baby or it’s her first birthday party. You’ve left the gift shopping to the last minute and only have a few days to come up with ‘the perfect gift’.
Jewellery is a gift of longevity and durability
Quality jewellery is more than a gift with a short life span, like a book or a toy. It is a keepsake that will last the distance and hold precious memories until that little girl is all grown up, possibly with her own little girl in the future.
In today’s throwaway society, there is far too much single use, short life span product available. It may look colourful and shiny on the day, but unless it is something truly special, it will inevitably be handed on or sold or even thrown away with a year or two.
Choosing an item of jewellery such as a bracelet, necklace or a charm bracelet gives your gift longevity. If your child outgrows the bracelet or necklace, additional sterling silver links can be added by a jeweller at a later stage. We will also be stocking larger chains later this year so your girl’s favourite pieces can be extended and worn again and again.
Benefits of sterling silver jewellery
Sterling silver is renowned for it’s durability, it’s shine and also for its non -hyper allergenic properties. It was even believed that silver can help to reduce anxiety.
Studies are inconclusive and much is linked to the power of belief and mental suggestion, but there are distinct health benefits to wearing silver jewellery. Sterling silver has now surpassed gold in its popularity as a metal base for jewellery due to a combination of price, value, and appearance.
Sterling silver is a 100% non-reactive metal
No nickel is found in the composition of sterling silver, which therefore makes it one of the most non-reactive varieties of precious metals currently in existence. Sterling silver with more than 92.5% silver can be placed in direct contact with the skin without triggering any adverse side effects. Which naturally makes it an excellent jewellery option for those individuals who may possess very sensitive skin, especially babies and young children.
