      Thanks for taking the time to note the non-kid gift ideas at Amazon. I bought the Sterling Silver Butterfly Pendant you highlighted last month and gave it to my niece for her birthday. It was a HUGE hit.

      @Gina – I'm happy it helps you! Also, even with the younger girls, I always think it's better to give real jewelry as opposed to toy jewelry, what with all of the recalls 🙂
