Baby Gifts & Jewelry
Children's Gifts and Jewelry
The idea of giving a piece of silver to a new baby dates back to the 18th Century with gifts of a silver rattle, spoon, plate or engraved cup. By the 1850s, the makers of silver-plate as well as the sterling-silver shops were offering items decorated with nursery rhyme illustrations, cats, dogs, bunnies and other popular children's designs. Customary gifts for today still include traditional pieces of silver, but have also expanded to include delicate jewelry in the shape of crosses or simple gemstones.
