Hello and this is my first proper post, I suppose. My previous post was just a hello so you can’t really count that. This is going to be a real, world changing post. Or, come to think of it, it may not :)
Can you call my last post a post? You can’t really count that because I just said hello. Perhaps I should write something fantastic. Wake people up. Makes you rethink your whole personal philosophy.
However, I don’t think I can do that. Sorry, people, but hopefully that will be something for the next post! However, this article is really just a bit of an observation. You go to the shops and see loads of jewellery for women. But women is only around 50% of the population and when you look out for jewellery for men, there’s hardly any compared to the amount there is for ladies.
Even more surprising is the amount of jewellery for children. There’s hardly any in the shops and what there is seems to be almost toy like - not quality pieces that you would want your kids to actually wear in company and not just put in their play box.
I’m thinking of high street shops when I’m thinking of this, however.
Online it’s a little better - there is at least places where you can buy stylish jewellery to give to your girl or boy. And I do think that designers are realising that children actually want more than just beads on pieces of string - kids know what is good!
I’m happy to say that most the pieces aren’t just shrunken items made for adults. They seem to understand that *shock* kids are different to adults and like different things! Pieces that are enjoyable for girls and boys.
Hopefully high street shops will understand that just because you’re young, it doesn’t mean that they don’t like pretty, stylish and well loved and will start to increase the choice for people.
Is this a realistic expectation?
Thanks for reading my rant - it’s appreciated. The next topic is being thought about - I hope you like it so keep an eye out!
