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.

Our Top Tips on Choosing Children’s Jewellery

The Big Issue – Size

The sizing of children’s jewellery is really dependant on the size of the child rather than the age as children do vary so much.  A small toddler can have chubbier wrists than a beanpole of a young teenager! However, below we hope to offer you some guidance.  Please don’t rely on this information totally, it is simply a guide.  Please bear in mind the build of the child.

Children’s Bracelets

If you can it is a good idea to try to measure the child’s wrist before purchasing.  A game with a length of string or ribbon usually does the trick.  All children love to be measured to see how big they are getting!  As a general rule, for a comfortable fit, you should allow an extra 1-2 cm depending on the overall length.  For a total measurement of 5″ or less add 1/2 “.

Bracelet Sizing – A Guideline

Up to 18 months 4.5″ (11.5cm)
Toddler 18mth-36mth old – 5″  (12.5cm)
Junior 3-5yrs old – 5.5″  (14cm)
Child 5-8 yrs –  6″ (15cm)
Older Child 9-12yrs 6.5″ (16.5cm) – 7″ (18cm)
Teen – 7″ (18cm) – 7.5″ (19cm)
Average Adult – 7.5″ – 19cm

Pandora Style Beaded Charm Bracelets

The same applies to bracelets as above but you also need to consider the number of charms that will be put on the bracelet.  The more beads placed on the bracelet, the tighter it will become.  For the addition of around 5 beads you should allow an additional 2-3 cm.  The more beads you add, the more space you will need.

It is always a good idea to purchase a ‘stopper bead’ for a child’s bead bracelet as this stops all the beads sliding off the bracelet when it is undone. You don’t want them to lose all their beads!

Children’s Necklaces

Most of the children’s necklaces at Diamond Kids are either 14″ or 16″ in length.  To find the correct size for your child measure loosely around the neck to the desired length with a piece of string or ribbon and measure against a ruler.  As a guideline we would suggest;

4-12 Years – 14″ – 35.5cm
12 – Teen – 16″ – 41cm
Teen – Adult – 18″ – 45.5cm
A Question of Taste – Style

Choosing the style and design of any jewellery gift is very much down to personal taste but when buying for little ones it all becomes so much easier. If you are finding it difficult to decide just opt for one of our sure fire winners from this list of best selling children’s jewellery pieces;

Colours and Designs 

  • If in doubt about what colour to choose for a little girl, always opt for pink! Sounds cliched but it never fails to delight.
  • Look out for hobby and interest related jewellery such as ballet, butterflies, dolphins ….
  • If you think a child might struggle with fiddly clasps opt for a pretty stretch bracelet which is much easier to get on and off.
  • If you want something to last choose a pendant – you can always swap to a longer chain later on so your gift will grow with the child.
