Religious medals, crosses.
Do you want to choose a traditional baptismal jewel? A classic is the baptismal medal
with a religious figurine shown on it or the necklace with a cross pendant. The godfather buys the chain and the godmother the medal or vice versa, and as it is a highly symbolic jewel, it is advisable to choose a gold model. During a Catholic baptism, the medal can represent different subjects such as Christ, the Virgin Mary, an Angel or a Saint or the Cross. For a little boy, we advise sober symbols such as the Angel or Christ, for girls, we prefer the Virgin alone or the Madonna and Child are symbols associated with gentleness and femininity. For a mixed medal, the Angel, the dove with the olive branch, or a very simple cross pendant in gold will be perfect. At Edenly you can find several models of religious jewelry, from the simplest in gold alone to the most modern ones like gold medals, diamonds and lacquer. To make your baptism jewel even more precious, you can personalize it with a nice engraving, which is free at Edenly, such as the date of birth of the baby or that of the event.
Children's jewelry, chains.
If you prefer to choose a secular baptismal jewel, or simply an original gift, you are spoiled for choice among the wide selection of children's jewelry on the market. You can choose earrings for a little girl, such as diamond chips or pearls that are jewels with eternal charm, or opt for a fine gold necklace with a nice pendant, like the small animals of the Edenly's Little Treasures collection
. For a boy, or for a girl as well, you can choose a sober jewel such as a yellow or white gold chain, to which you can add a pendant. Note that the weight of the chain must be at least equal to the weight of the medal to last in time. The length of a baptismal chain is to be chosen according to the choker of its bearer. The standard lengths are between 40 and 45 cm for a girl, for a boy it is necessary to evaluate if it is desired that the jewel be worn the first years (45 cm) or adulthood (50 cm).
