Sweet 16 is a milestone birthday that, for many girls, is the first time they feel like real young adults. Jewellery is a traditional and meaningful token of blossoming adulthood that a 16-year-old will cherish as a keepsake of her big day. It also is a gift she can wear at future important events. Many women wear their sweet 16 jewellery on their wedding day.

Charm Bracelet

Charm bracelets are traditional sweet 16 gifts that represent the child in the birthday girl, while respecting her more grown-up sensibilities. Charm bracelets are available in a wide variety of styles and can suit any budget. You can get a playful charm bracelet that includes charms like cell phones and ballet slippers, or get something more elegant with jewelled letters that spell out her name.

Birthstone Jewelry

Any item of jewellery that includes the birthday girl's birthstone is appropriate for the occasion. It adds a personal touch without being overly saccharine (if the girl in question is sensitive to such things). While a 16-year-old might outgrow the youthful (she may say childish) overtones of the charm bracelet, there is nothing childish or young about a precious gem in a silver or gold setting. Birthstone jewellery is a thoughtful gift at any age, but it has added significance at sweet 16.

Engraved Locket

Lockets are particularly meaningful sweet 16 gifts because they include pictures of loved ones. While the birthday girl may choose her boyfriend or best friend to go inside her locket, an engraving ensures she will always remember who gave it to her. You can fill the locket with pictures of her as a small child so she can think about how far she has come and how far she has yet to go. You also can get creative with the engraving, commemorating the day with a favourite quote the two of you share, or with your own wishes for her on her 16th.
