Where to Buy Baby Jewelery??
I would like to buy some infant and toddler sized bracelets for my daughter and niece and have no idea where in Dallas to go. I tried googling it but all I got were online stores. I'd like a physical store that I can go into and browse. Specifically, I'm looking for a little 14K gold bangle with a place to engrave her name. Silver and platinum is great too. Any suggestions? :-)

If you want to get something as a keepsake, Aarti jewelers in Richardson sell 18 and 22 karat jewelry. May Indian women customarily buy jewelry for children at a very young age and so they have a very nice selection for children. It is more expensive than jewelry in the mall but it is very high quality and will last forever. However, you can't engrave b/c the hardness lessens as the gold gets more pure (higher karat). I get my children's jewelry there every Christmas. Good luck!

I saw plain gold (no designs)children bangles in the Strasburg childrens store, when I was in there last, at the counter. I didn't look to see how much they were. They were having a clearance sale and it was busy.
I didn't have any luck looking online either but I found one.
While they don't engrave,
I just got my dd a gold toddler bangle at Walmart for her birthday for $20. They also had one size smaller. They were half off I think at the time and I didn't really want something super expensive for her. These were the only two left in the spinner box on the counter and they both had a pretty engraved design on them so they may not work if you wanted to engrave the top. I did want gold though and I am very happy, but more importantly, she was estatic to open her little engraved heart jewelry box (bought online at wally world too :o) ) and find a real bracelet inside.

Have you tried the jewelry stores at the mall?
Also, possibly some specialty baby shops such as Strausburg, etc.
I am in the Plano/Allen area and the first place I would look for that would be around Willow Bend Mall, then Stonebriar Mall and there are some freestanding jewelry stores as well.

Check James Avery. I am pretty sure they have children's jewelry.
