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, however, is going to be earth shattering. Or not, I suppose :)
I could write something about my last post being a post…but… You can’t really count that because I just said hello. I’m getting ready to write something awe inspiring. Makes waves. Makes you think and go “Wow - why didn’t I think of that?
However, I don’t think I can do that. Sorry to disappoint you but that could be in the next post. However, this article is really just a bit of an observation. You go around and see loads of jewellery for adult women - there are shops full of it! 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 designers are getting more forthcoming by designing whole ranges for children.
Online stores don’t just cut down jewellery and realise that children have different tastes. They actually seem to understand what kids like - often pretty, colourful and fun and good enough to catch the eye. Things that children enjoy.
Perhaps one day, bricks and mortar shops will figure out that they can’t just offer cheap and tacky pieces for children and get away with it.
Am I living in cloud cuckoo land?
Thanks and will speak soon - keep up the good work! The next topic is being thought about - I hope you like it so keep an eye out!
