Choosing the right metal 

The choice of metal will impact heavily on the overall style of the piece. Silver is a great everyday choice and a style that will seamlessly settle into every outfit. Whereas gold has more of a luxury feel to it and will suit more subtle jewelry styles if you’re wanting your jewelry to be worn as an everyday piece.

When choosing for a young girl, we recommend buying jewelry that is crafted in either 925 sterling silver or 18ct gold vermeil. Both of these metal choices are hypoallergenic and free of lead, nickel and caladium, so she can wear them every day without irritation. It’s important to understand metal safety before buying your piece to ensure it is perfectly safe for children. 

Adding an engraving 

Engraving your jewelry is a beautiful way to say a little but mean a lot. Using state-of-the-art technology, many jewelers will engrave certain pieces of jewelry from their collections, allowing you to create truly unique gifts that you can give her for her First Communion. 


Whether you’re looking to engrave a name, initial, date, or phrase, this latest technology will allow you to personalize your jewelry to the fullest and lets her look back on the bond you share at all times.

Bespoke birthstone jewelry

Choosing a piece of jewelry that features her birthstone will give the gift extra significance and meaning, knowing it has been tailor-made for her. Each birthstone holds a value that aligns spiritually and metaphysically with a person’s personality, and incorporating it into her First Communion jewelry will give it extra personalization and sparkle. 

Find out what her birthstone means so you can tell her all the qualities in her you adore and cherish when you offer her the thoughtful gift.

Selecting the right size

Understanding the size you need in a jewelry piece can seem tricky. It’s a good idea to take a look at a sizing guide so you can get a better grasp on the one you’ll need before purchasing your gift.  


However, if you’re still unsure, we recommend choosing a jewelry piece that offers adjustable sizing. This way, the piece can grow with her so she can continue to wear and cherish it for years to come. 

Our top picks for personalized First Communion Jewelry

Whilst personalized First Communion jewelry can come in many different styles, there are a few favorites of ours that we believe are a fail-safe way to show her how much she is cherished. Here are some of our favorites:


A baby bracelet is a classic and timeless choice. It’s understated enough to be worn most days, or on special occasions, and has enough room for a special engraving of your choice. An adjustable bracelet will allow it to be worn over a long period of time, so she can learn to appreciate it later on in life and keep it close to her.  


Alternatively, something else that can grow with her is an adjustable birthstone locket. The locket style is a purposefully designed jewelry piece that marries perfectly with personalization. Engrave her initial on the front or add a picture inside. Adding her birthstone will also highlight that this special gift is just for her, and an adjustable chain will ensure she will be able to treasure this piece from infancy, well into adulthood.
