Preteens are little girls on their way to becoming teenagers. It is a very confusing age to be, as they are either too young or too old for certain things. Fashion also plays a huge part, and while some fashions are too suggestive and inappropriate for preteens, the others are considered too babyish by them. Jewellery also falls into this category.
Interestingly, preteens love colourful looks. Gemstone jewellery is an ideal choice in this department. Semi-precious stones are colourful and set in silver or gold – they could be an absolute hit with your preteen daughter. Another option you have for her is her birthstone. This is ‘cool’ material, as it concerns her birthday, personality, is a great conversation starter and so on and so forth.
Another great idea for jewellery for preteens is a necklace with their name on it. You could get miniature alphabet blocks and string them on a ribbon of choice to spell their name. Some jewellers can even copy their handwriting, so it looks like you have your signature on a necklace.
If giving a gift of jewellery to a preteen, keep it dainty. The bold and dramatic kind of jewellery is not for preteens. Instead, go for flowers, stars, animals, butterflies or even a favourite symbol. Charm bracelets are also an ideal piece of jewellery for preteens. Simple, durable and also inexpensive, their most important feature – it can be personalized to suit any preteen taste. Charm bracelets can be adorned with anything ranging from rainbows, to flamingos, Disney characters or anything that catches their fancy.
