How to Choose Earrings for Girls


When it comes to earrings for girls, it’s important to choose high-quality metals that won’t cause a reaction. This means cheap costume jewellery is a no-go! It can quickly turn your little one’s skin green, irritate the piercing or even cause an infection. Along with the metal, there are also a few other things to consider when choosing earrings for girls.

 Whether you’re picking out a gift for your darling granddaughter, or selecting an everyday style for your tiny terror, we have created a handy guide to help you choose the best.


Metals to Avoid

You should always avoid nickel when shopping for children’s earrings. Young skin is very sensitive, and this particular metal can cause nasty reactive symptoms such as redness, itching, and swelling. Of course, this can ultimately lead to tiny temper tantrums and extreme feelings of parental guilt – nobody needs that!


Toddler Earrings

So your tiny tot has got their ears pierced, now what? You need to protect those adorable little ears at all costs! Firstly, be sure to select either gold plated or sterling silver earrings, as these are the least likely to cause an allergic reaction. You also need to consider the size of the pins. The younger your little princess, the smaller the backing pins required. Toddlers from two years of age can generally wear earrings that are about 4mm in length, so be sure to check the size before purchasing. 


Children’s Earrings for Sensitive Ears

If your child has sensitive ears, it’s even more important that you select a style made from high-quality metal, even if your child is a little older. Sterling silver plated in gold is the best thing to look for when it comes to protecting and preventing a reaction. Consider it the gold standard! This is because plating material can eventually wear down, and when that happens, you need a hypoallergenic base underneath. That’s where the sterling silver comes in.


Earrings for older girls can be a little larger than toddler earrings; we recommend a length of around 6mm. You can also consider silicone earring backs for a hygienic solution for a more secure and comfortable fit.


Where to Find Affordable Earrings for Girls

Many parents diligently invest in sterling silver or gold earrings for kids, only to end up wasting their cash when one mysteriously disappears. If this has happened to you, you’re not alone! At Adorable Gems, we make girls' earrings easier on the wallet by providing a spare with every set. This means you won’t have to replace them the minute one goes missing.


All of our earrings are made with high-quality gold, white gold, and sterling silver, which means you can sleep easy knowing your little one’s ears are in safe hands. Meanwhile, the standard addition of a spare helps to offset the cost of regular replacements.
