Baby Christening Bracelet9k gold baby bangle

When most people think of a Christening gift, they think of "keepsake" first. Failing that, they move on to a regular type of baby gift, one that she can use for now but rarely keep or pass down to her own children.

There has been a surge in baby jewelry purchased as Christening gifts. The reason is quite obvious. Baby Jewelry is seen as very special, and often personal. God mothers in particular like to present their godchildren with a gift of jewellery that they can keep.

Top of the list are baby bracelets and baby bangles. Perhaps a baby necklace but with the proviso that these should only be worn with supervision. All look divine on a baby, and beautiful in her Christening photos.  

We've just introduced a range of baby rings as well which might be a nice idea for a Christening.  Most of our rings are adjustable for growth.

Just as a suggestion, perhaps a children's jewelry box might be another nice idea, since children are given jewelry far more frequently these days and it's a great idea to have a safe place to store jewelry that isn't currently being worn.

Old Favorites for Newborns

Gold Baby ID bracelet

 

The rise in popularity of baby jewelry as gifts for newborns has been phenomonal in the past decade.  In decades gone by, only the very lucky received a keepsake gift of an item of jewelry, and most often, that item was a baby brooch.  Baby brooches were generally pinned on baby's matinee jacket for special outings and special occasions.  Once babyhood had passed, the brooches were put away in a safe place, to be returned to the owner on the occason of the birth of his/her first baby.  

Yes, boys have always been recipients of baby brooches, and still are, today.  But today brooches are less popular.  Baby bracelets are now the most popular item of jewellery for newborns but mainly for baby girls.  However, that is changing.  We get quite a few messages via our Contact Box asking which bracelets are most popoular for baby boys.

There are many styles of baby bracelet available but the traditional baby ID bracelet is still the most popular.  Sometimes they are "modernised" with the addition of a little charm or an etching on the side of the ID plate.  We think the opportunity to inscribe a gift for a newborn is popular because it then becomes a personalised gift.  

In some cultures, little gold baby earrings are given as newborn gifts for girls because it's expected the baby will have her ears pierced early.  

But at this time, bracelets are the most often purchased gifts of jewelry for babies.

Some people find the acids in their skin tarnish their jewelry, other people don't.  But all sterling silver jewelry will tarnish with time and exposure to air.  When she's not wearing her sterling silver children's jewelry, put it into a plastic zip-lock bag (you can purchase very tiny ones to hold one or two items of kids' jewelry, at "dollar stores."  Squeeze the air out before you zip it closed.

This will help prevent tarnishing.  But when her little silver children's earrings, bracelet or chain becomes tarnished, don't rush out and purchase expensive and toxic silver cleaners.  Try this "green" method for cleaning her silver items.

Most people have baking soda in their cupboard.  Line a small bowl with aluminium foil, shiny side up.  Lay her chains, bracelets etc. on the aluminium foil (items must actually be touching the foil.)  Sprinkle approximately one tablespoon of baking soda over the jewelry and pour boiling water over them.  

At first it will bubble  up.  This is harmless and will stop within seconds.  Leave to cool.  

I have read that this method works in one and a half minutes but I tried this on some children's chains and it didn't make much difference.  But I've since tried leaving it overnight and it did make the chains come up nice and shiny.  

I've also read that you shouldn't use this method on marquesite jewelry or some gemstones, or pearls.  so bear this in mind.  

Many people store their baby bracelets once they're outgrown, as keepsakes, in tissue paper in a cardboard box but if they are first put into an airless plastic ziplock bag, they will tarnish much less over the years.  When the time comes to give her, her baby jewelry back when she, in turn, has her first baby, you will be able to make them look brand new again, and she will be thrilled!

Whenever you select a little baby bracelet or a pair of children's earrings etc. from Baby Jewels, you are making a donation to women and children in Afghanistan.  

A wonderful Australian/Afghani woman named Mahboba Rawi who was forced to flee her home when the Russians invaded Afghanistan in 1984, and who spent 2 years in a refugee camp before coming to Australia, is helping to improve the lives of those struggling to survive in Afghanistan.

Read about her registered charity, Mahboba's Promise, here:  http://www.mahbobaspromise.org/about_us/about_mahbobas_promise/

To the women and children in the circumstances of receiving help from Mahboba's Promise, an item of baby jewelry or children's jewelry may indeed, seem a frivilous item, however a little of each of these jewelry items purchased from Baby Jewels, goes towards the work of this wonderful charity.  

Know that when you purchase your little girl's jewelry gift, that you are doing more than just delighting a child, you are offering very practical help to fellow human beings, in extreme need.  

Thank you!

New Baby Bracelets Have Arrived

Jul 10, 2012 8:40:36 AM

There is something special about giving the gift of baby jewelry.  Baby bracelets, when given at a baby shower, on the birth of the baby, or her Christening or first birthday, are a real expression of love, knowing this baby gift will be kept forever, or passed on down through the new babies in the family.  There's a timelessness about the gift of jewelry.  It's not something anyone would tire of, want to get rid of, or, thanks to family photos, ever forget about!  

Popularly these days, Moms gift back the baby jewelry on the occasion of her 21st, or, upon the birth of her own first baby.

For this reason, we're increasing our range of baby bracelets, which are the most popular form of baby jewelry, with lots of choice for newborns, baby bangles and bracelets, often with extensions for growth, and a range of new Christening bracelets.  

Give the gift of love, thrill her Mom and Dad, give them a family keepsake, the gift of love and memories, this is what giving baby jewelry is all about.

For a long time I've been checking suppliers the world over for the most exquisite range of baby bracelets ever.  I wanted them petite and beautiful, I wanted lots of tiny pearls, I wanted soft baby colours.  And I got what I found - in buckets.

Our new range is now uploaded.  I can say this, the photos are lovely, but the bracelets are so much nicer.  When I took them from the box, they almost took my breath away they are so ...well...beautiful (not wanting to overuse the word!)  But beautiful they most definitely are.

We have tiny newborn bracelets, bracelets for older babies and of course Christening bracelets.  They are mostly made of pearls, beautifully matched, very tiny so as not to overwhelm a tiny wrist and they have an extension for growth in order that they can be worn longer, given this is a rapid growth period.  Some have beautiful sterling silver charms.  

We also have some imperfect pearl bracelets which I love, with a simple silver or gold cross or silver heart.  These, in our Affordable range, are every bit as lovely.  Simple and natural.

These new items of baby jewelry bring our collection of baby and children's jewelry to almost 500.  We are becoming a super-store! (And loving it!)

Car Thief Steals Baby Earrings

Jun 25, 2012 7:10:15 PM

Was sent a story today which any mother would find shocking.  A car thief stole an SUV with a baby still strapped inside.  When the vehicle was discovered that day, the child was still there, but her baby earrings had been taken from her ears.

The baby was uninjured and had an emotional reunion with her mother, who was shocked to find her that her daughter's baby earrings had been stolen.  

What can we make of this?

The thief was very "taken" by the baby jewelry?

The thief has a baby daughter and stole the earrings for his/her own child?

I suspect the latter.  Who in the world can resist baby jewelry, when one has a baby girl of ones own?!  Not even a car thief.

Pearls, pearls and more pearls!

Jun 18, 2012 7:44:25 PM

We all love the little pearl baby bracelets bought as Christening gifts, first birthday gifts and gifts for later birthdays and Christmases.  We see them all the time online when searching the web for baby jewelry, particularly baby bracelets.

We haven't had a lot of pearl jewelry until now.  One tiny baby pearl bracelet, pearl bracelets for older girls, pearl baby necklaces and children's pearl necklaces.  

Pearls in all of their naturally occurring colours look stunning on the perfect complexions of babies and children.  I've been looking for some new pearl children's bracelets, especially those which combine the gleam of pearls with the sparkle of Swarovski crystals and the shine of sterling silver.  A beautiful combination, I think, and hard to beat.  

Well, I have found what I'm looking for and a bunch of new baby jewelry and children's jewelry is on its way. 

I think it'll be approx 10 days before they arrive, and I'm so looking forward to loading their photos onto the site.  If you're looking for a baby Christening gift, Baptism gift, or baby or children's birthday gift, pop in soon and check out the pearl category.

Baby Necklaces

Jun 13, 2012 7:24:53 PM

I was recently asked the question as to whether baby necklaces are actually safe for babies.  As with most baby jewelry, my answer was "with supervision."

To clarify, if baby is going to be with adults the entire time she's wearing her baby necklace, there is no reason to be concerned.  It's when baby is sleeping, in a separate room to her mother or carer, that problems can happen.   Some babies are surprisingly strong.  If she gets her hand or arm caught in her necklace, she can break it.  Furthermore, if the necklace she breaks, is made up of beads or other items of swallow-able size, those beads can end up in her mouth and she can choke.

Baby necklaces are meant to be worn on special occasions where she has an adult with her at all times, when photographs are being taken and she's looking her best.  For extra safety, ensure the necklace is only 12" - this decreases the likelihood of her catching her arm in it and breaking it.  Her baby jewelry is most especially to be worn for her baby portraits, but when she's put down to sleep, please remove her little necklace and keep it in a safe place (preferably her own little children's jewelry box.)

Baby bracelets, and necklaces in particular are for showing her off at her best and recording her image on camera.  After she has grown out of her necklace, and this goes for all baby jewelry, keep it for her until she's grown up.  She will marvel at how tiny and beautiful the item is, that she wore as a small baby.
