Birthstone bracelets and other gifts

Although sterling silver bracelets are one of the most popular choices when it comes to baby gifts, birthstone bracelets aren’t too far behind. The only reason for them to be an afterthought or a secondary choice is that they sport precious stones.

Precious stones are set in holders that aren’t completely baby proof. This means that a baby can bite it off the holding mechanism or it could come off on its own if it wasn’t set properly. This represents a choking hazard and that is why birthstone bracelets are always a second choice. When the baby is older, however, it can be a good choice as they know a little bit about what they should and shouldn’t do.

Pearl baby bracelets are again a good choice for older babies. Since the pearls are strung together with string or other mediums, the chances are that it could break. This brings up the safety issue again and that is why it is not very suitable for little babies. If you are stuck for choice, cite safety reasons and gift a bracelet to the mother instead. Mothers bracelets can be found in plenty on the internet and the best part is that you don’t have to worry squat about safety issues. There are some fabulous designs to choose from and you can anything from Rhinestone to Pearls and any combination in between. Just make sure that you buy from a reputed jeweler to avoid being swindled online.
