Jeweler specializing in beautiful pieces for children.

It’s easy to see why little girls would fall in love with the pretty jewelry from kids’ jewelry specialist Zarlex. The Miami-based online jeweler offers a variety of 14K yellow and rose gold earrings, rings, pendants and chains age-appropriate for girls from infant to 16 years old.

Jewelry designs feature colorful enamel, cubic zirconia and gemstones such as pearls, topaz and amethyst among others. Earrings feature safety backs such as the classic French Lock, which is secure, easy to fasten and comfortable to wear, as well as the Classic Stud with a screw-back that is suitable for infants as well as young ladies.

The tradition of giving silver keepsakes for Baptisms dates back to before Colonial times in this country. Zarlex also carries beautiful sterling gifts and souvenirs for Christenings or other special occasions, elegantly packaged sets of baby spoons, baby rattles, baby cups, baby cutlery or teething rings.

“We plan to expand our assortment to include watches, a jewelry line for boys and more,” Alexander Yambikov tells me.

Our June issue just came out, so look for it! And take a look at this new stuff for kids:

Noo_001Noo Designs, a line of whimsical critter clothing for children débuts in North America with a collection that includes rompers, diaper covers, sunhats and bibs. Noo’s fall collection of lovable and comfy four-piece outfits for everyday wear is available for late July delivery.  Founded in 2006 by owner and designer Belinda Robinson, Noo has quickly gained an international following with distributorships in Netherlands, France, Ireland, UK, New Zealand, China and Masu.

PrismeraPrismera Design launches the Gem Collection, 12 necklaces featuring clusters of stones strung on sterling silver or 14k gold chains. Designer Laura Su Prismera also expanded the Hold Collection, making the The Cherish Bangle and the Embrace Ring available with set stones.

New from Australia: a line of toys called Stackers, an ingenious stack and play product line that kicks off with Noah’s Ark. “Tier Toys was established after nine years of research and development,” explains Leah Romyn, director of Tier Toys, “resulting in an extremely robust USA and Australian patent for an educational puzzle toy. This unique concept has rejuvenated the construction toy arena.” Noah’s Ark has 12 stackable layers; each uncovers two or more animals ready to walk down the plank for a play date. A total of 44 detailed figures in primary colors of red, blue, yellow and green includes Noah and his wife. Watch an video of the ark and how its pieces easily pull apart and are stacked back together. Available soon online and at specialty toy retailers.
