Best Earrings for Kids
Your kids may be at the age that they're interested in getting earrings and that's great. But you as a parent may have some concerns over what's best for your child. That's why we've put together this piece to help you understand the best earrings for kids so that getting earrings is a positive experience and worth every penny.
If you're considering getting your child's ears pierced, it's important to do your research so that you know what to expect. This way, you can be sure that you're making the best decision for your child. Here are a few things to keep in mind:
Use non-allergic materials like silver and gold.
The last thing you want is your child getting an allergic reaction to their earrings. That's why it's important to use materials that are less likely to cause an allergic reaction like silver and gold. If you’re considering gold plated earrings as a cheaper alternative, make sure the base material is silver as the plating may fade over time and other base metals may irritate the skin.
Small enough so they can't be ripped out.
Kids spend a majority of their day playing, running around and being active. It's important to choose children's earrings that can't be pulled out or caught in clothing easily. This may mean you may want to avoid dangling earrings.
Easily removable for cleaning.
Earrings can harbour bacteria so it's important to choose ones that can be easily removed for cleaning. This way, you can help prevent infection. Especially after a new piercing.
Since kids love to play in water, it's important to choose waterproof earrings. This way, they can still enjoy themselves without damaging their earrings. This is another reason why fashion jewellery (non-precious metals) is a bad idea. The cheap materials used causes the earrings to react and erode when in contact with water.
Try a silicone back for comfort.
The last thing you want is for your child to feel uncomfortable in their earrings especially when standard backs are so tiny. That's why it’s a good idea to choose earrings with a silicone back as they are more comfortable and stop the backs becoming embedded in the ear and hair being caught.
Where you shop is important.
When it comes to your children, it’s important to know that their safety is paramount so it’s important to pick a trusted vendor. All our earrings are of the highest quality and our many positive reviews can attest to that. Not only that, but we believe parents shouldn’t have to fork out extra cash to replace an entire set each time an earring gets lost. That’s why we include a spare with every pair meaning a lost earring is no big deal.
Getting their first earrings can be very exciting. But it's important to explore it in detail prior to piercing your littluns ears to ensure you and your child are prepared. Keep in mind things like using non-allergic materials, choosing small earrings that won’t get caught in clothes and are easily removable, and consider having a silicone back for comfort. Following these tips will help make shopping around a less daunting experience.
