Pure Pretty PoetryMarcel-baby-M

Your daughter’s jewelry box overflows with things that sparkle and glitter. But how many of those dollar metal bracelets and plastic necklaces will still be there in five years? It may be time to buy her a real keepsake, one she will cherish year after year. On her next birthday, honor the passage of time with a specially engraved, signature Jeanine Payer piece that will outlast her  princess jewelry box.

Payer’s clients include a long celebrity roster, with the likes of Johnny Depp, Susan Sarandon, and Seal digging her emotionally engaging jewelry that features hand-engraved poetry on precious metals. Send your child or a young one in your life a personal, thoughtful message that only a poet can express, one that will resonate through the ages–past bad hair days, pimples, and heartbreaks.Skylar-lighter-pink-M-01

Items for children include the $145 Laloue bracelet for him or her with a French ribbon and textured, sterling silver charm with 18k gold rivets. Laloue reads “love grows love,” quoting Casey Haymes. Other keepsakes for godchildren, nephews, or nieces include a cylindrical First Tooth Box for $275, with a quote by J.M. Barrie, and the $300 sterling silver Lili Spoon with 22k gold inlay and engraved Susan Stauter quote. Give a gift they can take with them into adulthood, as a reminder of the love that greeted them in this life.
