We love hearing from our customers about all the reasons they have for giving an Add-A-Pearl cultured pearl necklace to their loved ones. Their motivations are just as diverse and varied as the little girls who happily receive necklaces and continue to enjoy them as they grow into young women. In this blog post, we reveal our top five favorite reasons for giving Add-A-Pearl, so you can feel inspired to share the Add-A-Pearl tradition with a loved one and maybe even create a gift-giving reason that's unique to you and her.
#1 Newborn Baby Girl
Very few occasions in life are as exciting and hopeful as the moment a new baby enters the world, especially when that baby is a daughter, granddaughter, niece, goddaughter, or sister. A custom cultured pearl necklace from Add-A-Pearl is a beautiful gift because it marks the start of a new tradition, one that will accompany the new baby throughout her life. It's truly a gift that's as precious as all the memories it will celebrate.
A Christening is a very special event for families who embrace the Christian faith, and it also gives the godparents an opportunity to be present during a meaningful moment. Giving a baby girl an Add-A-Pearl necklace for her Christening is a powerful reminder that she is beginning her life in the Christian faith. Pearls can also symbolize innocence and purity.
#3 Big Sister Gift
Big sisters can sometimes feel left out when a new baby sibling is born. When a big sister gives her little sister an Add-A-Pearl necklace, she is establishing a meaningful relationship and getting involved in the arrival of her new family member. Parents can initially purchase the necklace on behalf of the big sister, and she can then choose to continue purchasing pearls for her little sister once she's old enough to do so.
#4 First Birthday
For new parents, the first year of a baby's life can be deeply fulfilling but also challenging and filled with sleepless nights. Reaching the first birthday is not only an incredible milestone for the child but also a boost of confidence for the parents, reminding them that they're capable and strong. A first birthday is a very popular occasion for gifting an Add-a-Pearl necklace.
#5 Holy Communion
When they are seven or eight years old, most Catholic children receive their First Holy Communion, which marks the day they first receive the Eucharist. An Add-A-Pearl necklace is a truly unique gift for this child, since she will be old enough to remember the occasion and also grasp the significance of both the pearls and the tradition she's about to begin with her loved one.
