The Tooth Fairy

Remember as a 5 or 6 year old, your first wobbly tooth, wiggling about in your mouth like a mouse in a hole?  Poking it with your tongue until it was sore and fiddling with your fingers, hoping it would come out but also hoping it wouldn’t in case it hurt?

Often baby teeth can hang in there for weeks like an ill-fitting denture just asking to be tweaked out by a willing adult.  My own son has his wobbly tooth knocked out during a playfight with my brother and he himself remembered his tooth being pulled out by tying string around it and yanking hard!  Grim as it sounds, losing their baby teeth can be an exciting time for many children who view it as a sign that they are growing up. After all, who ever heard of a 6 year old who didn’t want to be a Big Boy/Girl.

By 5 or 6 your child will have heard all about the Tooth Fairy – an enchanted little thing who sneaks into their room at night to whisk away their baby tooth from underneath their pillow and leave something in its place.  Today’s children are usually hoping for something shiny and round when they open their eyes in the morning but any little treat will be sure to delight.  Don’t you just love these utterly adorable Tooth Fairy Pillows, specially designed to make the whole event even more magical and exciting.  The little girl’s tooth fairy pillow features pretty pink tassels and a special little pink satin pouch for storing the offered tooth, while the boy’s version features a friendly dinosaur with blue and green colouring.

There will come a time when your little one no longer believes in the Tooth Fairy but the transition from believing to not believing can take some time.  There is always the fear that if you stop believing, the little treats will stop too and that is something that no child hopes for!

Daisy Jewellery for Children

This week we are celebrating the darling daisy.  The pretty flower with the sunny yellow face and a ray of crisp white petals that we all love and recognise.  Daisies are such a universal flower, growing everywhere in the world except for Antarctica!  This sweet flower lends itself to children’s jewellery, representing purity and innocence as well as looking adoringly pretty!

Delightful daisy jewellery from the Kit Heath Kids collection available at www.diamondkids.co.uk

Many a child will have memories of sitting in their garden or in the park picking daisies and threading together a daisy chain flower garland.  Can you believe that one of the longest Daisy chains ever created measured 1.31 miles!

According to folklore, when you make a daisy chain it should always have its ends joined together when finished as Daisy chains are said to represent the sun, the earth, and the circle of life.

Daisy Jewellery for Girls

Beautiful sterling silver daisy jewellery for young girls. Choose from many darling designs including this gorgeous silver bangle, adjustable ring and pretty girl’s earrings.

It was once believed that dressing a child in a daisy chain would protect them from being stolen by the fairies.  Daisy chains are steeped in history and in the Middle Ages they were used to treat battle wounds.  Daisies were crushed to form a pulp, applied to wounds and held with bandages thought to give soothing pain relief and aid the healing process.

We are all familiar with birthstones but did you know there are also traditional birth flowers?  The daisy is the April birth flower, so daisy jewellery would make a beautiful as well as meaningful gift for a little April birthday girl.  As a birth flower, the daisy has the meaning of implicity, modesty, innocence, stability, sympathy and cheerfulness.

Diamond Daisy Children's Jewellery

Diamond Daisy Jewellery for Children – this beautiful range of children’s jewellery featuring both diamonds and daisies is the perfect gift for any little girl with an April birthday – diamonds being the April birthstone and daisies being the April birth flower.

Lovely Lockets

Think of a piece of jewellery that is both enduring and endearing, associated with legends, myths and superstition.  A piece of jewellery worn for protection, to ward off bad luck, deliver poisons, house medicine, a perfumed cushion or perhaps a miniature portrait. We are talking of course about the lovable locket – a decorative, ornamental case housing a secret inside.

Gold or silver locket pendants, rings or bracelets increased dramatically in popularity during the Victorian Age.  Lockets often contained a miniature hand-painted portrait of a loved one, revealed to the wearer by opening the little hinged door.  They were often worn as a pendant on a long chain so that the locket sat close to the heart.  The miniature paintings were works of art and paved the way for the idea of inserting a photograph as we now do.

To the Victorians, the locket necklace became a very fashionable piece of jewellery made in copper, brass or pewter, or beautifully crafted from sterling silver or gold. Often the locket would be monogrammed or engraved providing a meaningful keepsake.  The lockets were worn on a chain or velvet cord.  Ladies would often wear a filigree style locket containing a cotton ball soaked in their favourite scent of lavender, lilac or violetto to provide a hint of perfume.

In the 19th Century Queen Victoria received a beautiful bracelet from Prince Albert with eight enamelled heart shaped lockets.  Each locket contained a lock of hair, one from each of her eight children. Popularity increased and lockets were often given as christening gifts or gifts of love.

Today lockets remain a classic and popular jewellery gift choice for adults and children alike.  Children’s diamond lockets make beautiful gifts for christenings, birthdays or as bridesmaid jewellery.   A heart locket is a give of love – representing someone else’s heart resting on yours.

Christmas Stockings

At a length of 168ft and a width of 70ft, imagine waking up to the world’s largest Christmas stocking on Christmas morning!  This is the size of the hugest, most amazing Christmas stocking ever created and recorded by Guinness World Records.  Created in Italy by volunteers to raise money for a charity helping the aged, the stocking was stuffed full of balloons with sweets inside.  What child wouldn’t love to see that?

Why not treat a special child to a plush personalised christmas stocking this Christmas – ideal for both boys and girls of all ages.

There are many tales about the origins of the christmas stocking but the most popular is the tale of a father and his three daughters.  Nearing old age and being very poor, the father worried that he wouldn’t be able to provide dowries for his daughters to get married. Rumours reached St Nicholas and on Christmas Eve after everyone had gone to bed, he visited the house to leave a gift.  Through the window he could see 3 pairs of stockings hanging over the fireplace to dry and it gave him an idea. He went up to the roof, crept down the chimney and placed a bag of gold in each of the stockings which would provide enough money for the daughters to marry.  In the morning the gold was discovered and the father and his daughters overjoyed.

Make Christmas extra special this year with this fabulous personalised christmas sack which can be used year after year.

Today in the UK this tradition continues and children often leave out a specially made and decorated Christmas stocking or sack hoping that Father Christmas will creep down their own chimney and fill it up with gifts and treats.  To help you with stuffing those stockings Diamond Kids have some fantastic ideas for affordable gifts to put a smile on the faces of both  boys and girls when they wake up on Christmas morning.  Every year it gets harder and harder to find fun, affordable gifts to stuff those stockings with doesn’t it?  Here are some of our favourites.
