My nearly-9-year-old daughter is not much into jewelry, but I know that many of her friends are. And that they’ve most certainly moved beyond some of the cheaper-looking, blinged necklaces for girls with princesses, daisies and peace signs. I got an email from NYC company 100% Gumdrop and I think I’m hooked. These stylish, not-overdone girls’ necklaces are made right here in the Big Apple, using sterling silver, stainless steel and 14K gold. There are numbers, words, and sayings–my favorites are these birthday necklaces which cost $30 each. I think they’re the perfect ‘tween birthday gift (though they actually start at age 2 for precocious toddlers). Buy them at 100% Gumdrop.
