As you are looking for the proper jewelry for your special day, remember that flower girl jewelry should complement the jewelry of the bridal party but it should be smaller scale. You don't want to purchase jewelry that is made for adjusts for a little flower girl as it won't fit them properly. One good choice that many brides make is to pick out cultured freshwater pearl jewelry that is accented with clear rhinestones or Swarovski crystals to give it that "glittery" feeling. This type of jewelry is easy to match in large and small scale.
For the flower girl it is best to go with a single strand of 3-4 mm cultured freshwater pearls in a natural or pastel shade. Since children tend to dance and move around a lot at big gatherings you should make sure that all necklaces & bracelets have good secure clasps so that they don't lose their jewelry during the festivities.
If your flower girl wears earrings, they should be kept on the small side so you could go with a 3-4 mm cultured freshwater pearl stud earring or a sterling silver fish-hook styled earring with a tiny pearl drop. By choosing the smaller scale items for her, you will not overwhelm the delicate frame of the girl and it is appropriate for you wedding day and the dress selection too.
As with your bridesmaids, present your gift to your flower girl in a gift presentation case. Perhaps a keepsake wooden ballerina music box that she will enjoy long after the wedding. You want your gift to be a treasured keepsake that your little flower girl will look and wear with stars in their eyes, just waiting for the day they will be a bride too!
