Looking for children's earrings: A challenging mission

Earrings are a wonderful way to complete your child's outfit and add a touch of personality. But with so many different styles and materials to choose from, it can be difficult to find the perfect earrings for your child. In this blog we discuss everything you need to know about children's earrings, from the different types of earrings to tips for choosing the right size.

Types of earrings for children:

  • Studs : These are the most popular earrings for children. They are small, simple and comfortable to wear. Plugs are available in different colors, materials and with different decorations, such as stones, hearts or small figures.
  • Pendants : Pendants are earrings that hang from a hook on the ear. They come in all shapes and sizes, from pearls to elegant butterflies. Hangers are a fun way to add a touch of glamor to your child's outfit.
  • Huggies : Huggies are round earrings that are inserted through the earlobe. They are available in different thicknesses and materials, such as gold, silver and titanium. Huggies are a classic choice that is always in fashion.

    Tips for choosing the right size earrings:

    • Measure your child's earlobe . The length of the earring should be slightly shorter than the length of the earlobe. The diameter of the earrings is stated under the heading "Size & weight" next to the earrings.
    • Choose earrings with a sturdy clasp . This way you prevent them from getting lost. Most huggie earrings have a sturdy click closure
    • Pay attention to the material of the earrings . Choose nickel-free materials to prevent allergies. The jewelry at Damaris Jewelery is all nickel-free!
    • Ask your child what he or she likes . Children have their own preferences when it comes to jewelry.

    Children's earrings: a gift for every occasion:

    Earrings are a perfect gift for any occasion, such as a birthday, Sinterklaas or Christmas. You can also give them as a gift when your child changes teeth or goes to school. My personal favorite is an equal set with you and your child.

    Safety first:

    It is important to check whether the earrings you buy for your child have sharp edges or points. Also avoid earrings with small parts that can become loose and swallowed.

    At what age should you get earrings for your child?

    The age at which your child can wear earrings is a personal choice. There is no legal minimum age for having children's ears pierced. Some parents choose to have earrings fitted to their baby or toddler, while others wait until their child is a little older.

    Factors to consider:

    • Your child's age: Children under 3 years old are not yet aware of the value of their earrings and may pull them out or accidentally damage them.
    • Your child's development: Some children have poor motor skills and may have difficulty keeping their earrings clean.
    • Your child's experience of pain: Getting your ears pierced can be painful. Some children are more sensitive to pain than others.
    • Your own feeling: It is important that you feel comfortable with the decision to skip earrings on your child.

    Finally:

    Earrings are a fun and simple way to complete your child's outfit. With the tips in this blog you can find the perfect earrings for your child.
