One of the best first jewelry gifts for your little girl is birthstone jewelry. She'll appreciate it because it symbolizes her birth month and if you shop right, it won't hurt. First, feel free to stick to sterling silver jewelry when your child is younger. It's less expensive, yet made to last, which means if it's lost or damaged, you won't be too upset, and it your child holds onto it, it will remain a charming keepsake into the future.
Choose smaller, flatter setting for any birthstone gemstones so the piece is less likely to snag and the prongs less likely to be taxes by it's young, rambunctious wearer. Finally, make sure your little lady has a simple jewelry box, and encourage her to use it whenever she isn't wearing her ring, bracelet or necklace. Help her develop good jewelry habits so she can take care of her things into the future.
