She's only nine months old, but whether it's my sparkling water, hummus, pendant necklace, or magazine, if mama's eating, wearing, or using it, she'd like it, too — and she knows how to get it. (I'm already terrified for her teenage years.) Before she can raid my jewelry box in a few years, I'm thinking I should consider investing in the Cuties collection from Samantha's Charms.

The matching bears, giraffes, ducks, elephants, and pigs come in 14k rose gold-plated, yellow gold-plated, and sterling silver, and range from $60 to $85 each. So what do you think about Samantha's take on mommy-daughter jewelry? Weigh in below!

The model-cum-TV personality just launched a charity jewelry collection with Senhoa, an organization that helps Cambodian victims of human trafficking. “They asked if I wanted to partner up with them to do a jewelry line. I designed it and the girls make it, and the proceeds go to the girls,” said Rocha. All of the jewelry from the Coco Rocha for Senhoa collection is made by hand at Senhoa using Swarovski-colored beads and chain links. The seven-style collection is now available at Senhoa and ranges from $60 to $195, with one ultraglamorous body piece that costs for $995.
