Girl’s jewelry is available in a wide range of materials. Keepsake and more formal jewelry is available in different grades ofsilver and gold. Some are available in other metals, though they are generally more casual, everyday items. Much of the more formal jewelry features gemstones, with birthstones being especially popular. It may be wise to avoid more delicate stones, such as opal, as this type of precious stone scratches easily.
Much of the jewelry available for girls is more casual and intended for everyday wear. These generally feature rhinestones in place of gemstones and are often silver or gold plated. Many pieces of girls’ jewelry feature enamel characters and designs, which are available in any color of the rainbow. Some jewelry, intended for use in play is made from plastic or inexpensive metals.
