sterling silver highly polished ball bangleBaby and Children's HuggiesFlower on butterfly earrings

Children's earrings remain our biggest seller category. But this month, there must have been a run of babies being born because the newborn baby bangle category has also been popular.

Children's necklaces have been slow this quarter but with the arrival of some brand new styles, we hope this will change.

Biggest selling gold children's earrings has been the baby and children's 14k gold cz huggies! These are also a personal favourite.

Biggest selling sterling silver children's earrings has been our "flower on butterfly" earrings with push backs.

Second biggest seller this month has been a brand new ball bangle, new to Baby Jewels. This little ball bangle is a cuff style bangle and can be opened slightly to accommodate growth. Highly polished, it looks divine on a little wrist.

Loads of new stock just been uploaded. Baby and children's jewelry makes such a great gift, one that can be worn for a lengthy period and kept forever.

Have you ever purchased birthstone jewelry for your children?  I have the opportunity to purchase baby and children's bracelets and children's necklaces with birthstones, as well as children's earrings with a little dangly birthstone.  

I've written here before about birthstones.  The American Gem Society says:  "Traditionally, a birthstone is associated with each month of the year. For example, the birthstone for January is a garnet, while lucky babies born in April get a diamond as their birthstone.  There are numerous legends and myths about birthstone healing powers and their therapeutic influence. According to these legends, wearing a gemstone during its assigned month heightened its healing powers. For the full effect, individuals needed to own all twelve and alternate them monthly."  

Here are the birthstones for each month of the year:

January - Garnet

February - Amethyst

March - Aquamarine

April - diamond

May - Emerald

June - Pearl, Alexandrite

July - Ruby

August - Peridot

September - Sapphire

October - Tourmaline, Opal

November - Topaz, Citrine

December - Tanzanite, Zircon, Turquoise

Let me know by replying here or the Contact Us notebox if you are interested in this traditional style of baby and children's jewelry.  If there's enough interest, I'll certainly get some for the site.

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!

Safe Children's Earrings

Jul 24, 2012 3:30:26 PM

Once the piercing has healed, it's time for your little girl to choose some earrings.  For most little girls, this is an exciting time that they've looked forward to for some time.  

You could take her to the jewelry store or look online for her first pair of children's earrings.  There will be much more for her to choose from online but ensure the photos are clear and the description includes measurements.  The earrings need to be small and light and the rod not too long.  There is a range of "backs" which are suitable.  First, the butterfly backs which are made of the same material as the earrings, which may be gold, silver, surgical steel or titanium.  All of these metals are safe but mostly you will find children's earrings in gold and silver. 

Secondly, you might purchase a bunch of silicone backs.  These are very safe, very light and once on the rod, they tend to "grip" the rod, ensuring the earring doesn't come out and become lost.

Thirdly, you could try safety screw backs.  So named, because the rod is threaded as is the "back," ensuring the back can be screwed down tightly, to prevent it coming off and becoming lost.  Some screw backs are covered so that the rod is inside the back, but some are not.

Screw backs are generally a little more expensive but may be worthwhile if your daughter "plays" with her earrings.  This is generally how backs come off and the earring drops out and becomes lost.

Once your little girl gets used to her first pair of children's earrings, she will forget they are there except for when their friends notice them and compliment her.  Or she looks in the mirror to brush her hair or her teeth, and sees her earrings and notices how pretty they are.  This makes earrings one of the safest items of children's jewelry, because they are not getting played with when they are forgotten.  

If her ears are pierced early, they become "part of her" and she's less likely to "play" with them and lose them.

Some nationalities have their baby's ears pierced at around 3 months.  It is normal and expected and babies grow up not bothering with them.  Though all little girls like jewelry and like to choose their own, eventually.

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!

I have enjoyed immensely, my role in running this baby and children's jewelry site.  It has been a sharp learning curve as far as running a webiste is concerned but when I think about this venture, it's the buying I love the most!

Searching continually, the world wide web for the newest styles of baby bracelets, children's earrings etc. is a real joy.  The new designs are always a thrill and I always want to purchase the items I like, for the site.  But the goal is not to double up with similar styles, but offer different choices for different tastes.

Currently, I am placing or have placed, orders for sterling silver baby anklets and anklets for little girls, baby bracelets in sterling silver and, today, new baby bangles.  Arriving hopefully next week, we should have a new range of European style (brand name not to be mentioned) children's starter bracelets in silver and leather.  And gorgeous children's beads (charms) to go with them.  

It's hard not to buy too much, because already I have the feeling there's actually too much choice, in that too much choice is confusing.  (If you find this to be the case, please make use of the comparison button on each page, so you can compare only those items you particularly like.  It will make your choice easier.)

And near the end of the year, I want to get in my long awaited 14K gold screwback children's earrings in time for Christmas.

As always, if there's something you particularly want but can't find on the site, please let me know via the contact box.  I'm happy to go on a world wide hunt to find it!

Think of all the special occasions for which you could give a baby or children's jewelry gift:

Baby Shower

Newborn baby gift

Christening gift

Baptism gift

First birthday gift

Any birthday gift

Starting school gift

Flower girl gift

Christmas gift

and many more.

At these times, parents, grandparents, Aunties and Uncles, Godparents, older siblings and friends dig a little deeper.  Not just in their pockets, but also in their decision as to what type of item, whether it be a baby bracelet, children's earrings, etc. and what type.  The range is almost endless, starting with the decsion of whether the jewelry piece should be gold or silver or perhaps even pearls.  

These decisions ensure the gifts become cherished, lasting momentos.

To the parents of these babies and children, such a gift is a real thrill.  A piece of baby jewelry or jewelry for an older child, is a special gift, and means a lot to the parents, not just the little recipient.

Customer Photos

Apr 20, 2012 6:44:12 AM

We always love getting feedback from our customers.  Many let us know their piece of baby jewelry or children's jewelry arrived safely and that they love it.  Sometimes we ask permission to place their email on our Testimonials page though we've neglected this page in recent times.

We love all our jewelry so when our customers do too, it's not just confirmation that we're buying what our customers want, but it's a real thrill to us when our customers express their love of our little products.  

What we'd really love, are some photos.  We'd love to see your baby wearing her new baby bracelet, your little girl wearing her little ID bracelet, or her new children's earrings.  

Last year, we received from a customer, a photo of a little girl on her Christening day, wearing the pearls her grandmother had purchased for her.  It was a little pearl children's necklace which had a cross made from pearl, a beautiful piece.  We loved this photo so much we gained permission to use it on the website when next we do a re-furbish.  

So, to all our hundreds of customers out there, please do send us a photo of your little one wearing her new jewelry.  We would love to see it!  We know these are emotional purchases, with lots of love attached and we'd love you to share.

New Kids' Jewelry Coming

Apr 14, 2012 11:22:45 AM

For two years we've been looking for some nice screwback children's earrings.  We've found screwbacks but haven't liked the look of the ones we've found.  We were looking for really pretty earrings, something special.  We've finally found some and am currently organising my first shipment.  Within the month, they should be here.

We'll start a new children's screwback earrings category so they don't get lost in the over 100 other styles of earrings we currently have.

We're also stocking up on more gold jewelry.  Customers use our Contact Tab on the site quite regularly, asking for what they're looking for and we've found a resurgence in customers looking for gold.  Mainly baby bracelets and kids' earrings but also baby earrings.

So there's more gold children's jewelry on the way.  

If there's anything you'd particularly like to see on the site, please let us know.

As a grandmother, I know why I chose baby jewelry when each of my granddaughters were born but I have carried out a little survey, asking buyers what their motivation was, when they bought that little baby bracelet, baby charm or little girl's necklace etc.

I found that, besides having a love of purchasing nice things for their grandchildren, they chose baby jewelry or children's jewelry because they couldn't afford it for their own children.

Which is the exact same reason as mine!   I have always admired a delicate little bracelet on a chubby wrist and the lucky little girls who wear children's earrings, children's necklaces, little silver charm bracelets etc.  Babies and little girls look divine in a simple piece of jewelry.  Boys too, are now wearing boys' bracelets and they look great too!  But when I was a young mother, children's jewelry was an expense that wasn't affordable.  In those days, most children's bracelets and other children's jewelry, was made of gold and was very expensive.  Today, we rejoice in a huge choice of sterling silver baby and children's jewelry which is not only affordable, but has reached a very high level in design.  No longer are they small replicas of adult jewelry, they have a charm that suits babies and children and appeals to our children on their level.  

That's not to say gold baby bracelets are no longer available or popular.  They are, but these days with the masses of choice in sterling silver, baby jewelry is now affordable on all budgets.

At Baby Jewels, we find grandmothers are great buyers of baby and children's jewelry.  We love to indulge our children and grandchildren, even if it's only very occasionally and what better gift than an item that won't go out of fashion, can be worn for years, make our children feel special and can be kept safely for the next round of babies in the family?  And we know the kids will treasure it.
