Choosing the Right Necklace

Jewelry, especially customizable jewelry, is a very personal gift to deliver. Therefore, it is important to choose only the best birthstone necklace for your child, taking a few things into consideration. Children, as individuals, have their own unique tastes and preferences. So, it will be important to choose a necklace that they would enjoy wearing all the time.  Here are some important questions to consider when choosing the right necklace:

1.   What is the child’s birthstone?

Your child’s birthstone depends on the month they were born. Whether it’s topaz or an emerald, their birthstone can be represented with the stone itself or the same color as the stone. If your child is a little picky about what they like, you don’t have to limit yourself to the child’s birthstone.

Keep in mind that the chosen gemstone for the birthstone necklace does not have to be the exact stone for the child’s birthday—it can be any stone or color that you choose, even the birthstone of a family member or friend. For instance, theMoonlight Apollo Birthstone Necklace comes with Swarovski crystals in a variety of colors to suit any child’s liking. 

2.   What shape or size necklace would tyour child gravitate towards?

For example, would a longer necklace with a small charm or a shorter necklace with a larger charm best fit their personality? 

3.   What type of metal would your child likely wear?

Would they be attracted to silver, pewter, or steel? Also, consider whether or not the child is allergic to certain metals, this can help to narrow down to specific necklace designs.
