Children’s Jewellery Christmas Gift Guide

There is nothing better than seeing your little ones smile from ear to ear, as they open a gift under the Christmas tree. It’s an even better feeling when you know as they leave toys behind, they’ll always cherish your gift forever and close to their heart.

Whether shopping for a birthday, special occasion or milestone moment, there are plenty of ways to show you care with our precious children’s jewellery. Choose from sterling silver and 9ct gold jewellery options for pieces that are long-lasting and truly sentimental.

Twinkling Star Jewellery

Tell them they are the star of the show with pretty star shaped jewellery pieces. Choose from plain sterling silver, 9ct yellow gold or cubic zirconia-set stud earrings, expandable bracelets and pendants to build their very own starry set. If they are less obsessed with the stars in the sky and more about Star Wars, we’ve got BB8 and R2D2 to keep them company.

Inspiring Magical Creatures

Children’s jewellery should spark their imaginations, so look out for fantastical beasts and magical creatures adorning jewellery designs. A sterling silver unicorn locket could be the perfect place to store their best-kept secrets… or maybe just a picture of the family cat. Why not sprinkle a little bit of fairy dust into their next jewellery gift with fairy-inspired pieces. Look out for pink enamel charms and expandable bangles for jewellery they will wear day-after-day.

Flower Power and Butterfly Jewellery

Children love any opportunity to wear flower jewellery designs. If they spend all their time in the great outdoors, look out for buzzing bee jewellery with colourful enamel or children’s butterfly jewellery accented with rose gold, cubic zirconia and bright pops of enamel. Soon you will be buying them a whole menagerie of animal jewellery!

Trendy Children’s Jewellery Ideas

If they are a fashionista at five you may have a children’s jewellery challenge on your hands. Never fear, because the big news in jewellery for kids is initial pendants, children’s signet rings and super cute huggie hoop earrings. Traditional creole hoop earring styles are a great choice for kids with a passion for dress-up and choosing their own creative ensembles. If they grow up to be a top model or fashion designer at least you can claim all the credit.

Personalised Name Pendants

As they get a bit older and develop their own identities, the kid’s in your life will be craving something more personal to them. A personalised name necklace is a great way to make them smile and, if you are buying for siblings, they will have the all-important ‘same-but-different’ present… no one will have a screaming gift envy meltdown on your watch!

Follow Their Passions with Character Jewellery

We all know kids can become obsessive, whether it’s dinosaurs, the solar system or the latest animated movie. Feed their passions with children’s jewellery that captures exactly what they love, like Beatrix Potter characters, Peppa Pig or Disney heroes. We reckon it’s a bit of a rite of passage to have your own Mickey Mouse pendant or Minnie Mouse stud earrings. These are children’s jewellery trinkets they will remember even when they turn 16.

Lots of Love Hearts

Heart shaped children’s jewellery is having a moment, especially with cubic zirconia, pearl or enamel details. Start with a pair of plain sterling silver heart stud earrings for their birthday and snap up the matching silver heart pendant for their Christmas gift. If you are feeling extra generous, a pair of 9ct yellow gold stud earrings are utterly timeless and will last for decades if looked after… easier said than done with kids!

Snowflakes and Frozen Jewellery

Is there anyone out there who doesn’t know the words to ‘Let It Go’? Snowflake jewellery and Disney Frozen jewellery is up there on every kid’s wish list. Whether they are an Anna, an Elsa or an Olaf, there is a piece of jewellery to match. We love the Disney Frozen Elsa Heart Locket and the ‘Let It Go’ Necklet. Don’t forget, Frozen 2 is due in cinemas in November, so there will be plenty more catchy Disney tunes to get stuck in your head.

Beautiful Christening Jewellery Gifts

Sometimes you just need a traditional christening jewellery gift for that special day. Expandable christening bangles are a good place to start in 9ct yellow gold or sterling silver, or perhaps an angel pendant or simple cross pendant to mark the occasion. Classic christening bangles are engraved with hearts and flowers for that sentimental touch, but contemporary christening jewellery is continuing to grow in popularity. There’s even a Peppa Pig christening bangle for the modern family.

For Flower Girls

With your bridesmaids’ gifts covered, you will need to move on to the flower girls. You may choose children’s jewellery that matches the theme of your wedding, like winter wonderland or summer garden. If in doubt, choose something that can be engraved with their name for the personal touch, like an ID bracelet, or a personalised name necklace.

Wild about Watches

Creative and colourful children’s watches are the ideal gift for slightly older kids, especially if they are learning to tell the time. From Star Wars to Spiderman, there are countless themed kids’ watches to choose from that they will be excited to wear. Nylon and fabric strap watches are the best choice for bold colours and a comfortable fit.

The special jewellery we receive as children has the power to stay in our hearts (and jewellery boxes) for many decades to come. For your little ones, choose precious metal children’s jewellery that will stand the test of time and spark happy memories, whether they are six months or six going-on-sixteen!
