Contemporary and traditional, and up to the minute styling of traditional designs, from as far back as Victorian times, describes many of our keepsake baby and children's jewellery keepsake gifts. Sterling silver is the choice of many for newborns, Christenings, first and subsequent birthdays and Christmas gifts.
Sterling silver contains 92.5% pure silver but silver by itself, is too soft for children's jewellery, so stronger metals are added, usually copper, which gives that much loved, bright, sparkly finish.
Today's baby and children's sterling silver jewellery contains no nickel or cadmium and is a safe, hypoallergenic metal for sensitive skins, including newborns.
The sparkle of sterling silver almost matches the sparkle of quality cubic zirconias, as in many of our children's earrings, and teams well with the mellow glow of pearls.
Sometimes sterling silver is plated with platinum or rhodium. This creates a protective surface that prevents light scratches which can dull the shine. And more commonly in baby and children's jewellery, a new coating, Evershine, is used which, for a time, also prevents dulling by scratches.
