Buying jewellery for children can be tricky – it’s either a little grown-up or has the novelty factor (like cartoon characters etc.) Miss Marnie was given a beautiful vintage style adjustable bangle from my grandmother for her 1st birthday – just as I had been given one as a baby from my parents.
Mine is engraved with my full name and I recently found it in an old jewellery box in my mums attic! I had Miss Marnie’s engraved also – as I really think it makes it all the more special and something to treasure.
So, I was excited to discover the new Little Wishes Collection – designed especially with little girls in mind – by Goldsmiths. An exclusive range of sterling silver friendship and charm bracelets, delicate earrings and pendents. There’s also diamond and fresh-water pearl pieces just perfect for older girls.
Although, I think the standout piece is the dainty charm bracelet with enamel or stone set charms to help personalise it. With 19 little charms to choose from ladybirds, bumble bees, heart, stars and books – they quickly link onto the bracelet and are lightweight enough for tiny wrists.
I think they would make a wonderful birthday gift or, even a present to honour a bridesmaid.
And, the charms are great for marking special occasions like Easter (bunny charm), child’s first day at school (book charm) or even first dance lesson (with a cute ballet slipper charm) – helping them to build up their own collection.
I also think the bright pink box and drawstring pouch add a touch of elegance – and ensures this first jewellery collection is one to be treasured forever.
Miss Marnie is maybe a bit too young at the moment – but, I will be putting this cute bunny charm bracelet that Little Wishes kindly sent her away until next year – unless I can squeeze it around my wrist in the meantime!
Prices start from £19 and are available in selected stores and at goldsmiths.co.uk
V. I. BE HONEST: Miss Marnie was sent a silver bracelet with a bunny charm as a early Easter present in exchange for this post. All views are our own and #MAMAapproved
