Finding Safe And Beautiful Children’s Earrings

Having a baby’s ears pierced is not so uncommon now-a-days. More and more parents are choosing to have this type of piercing done, even before baby can speak! Most experts will agree that the piercing itself is relatively painless; most are less painful than immunization shots that a baby will receive. However, before you get excited and run out to purchase children’s earrings, there are some basic fundamental elements to be aware of to keep babies, toddlers and youngsters safe while they are wearing children’s earrings.

Children’s earrings are crafted differently than adult earrings. Therefore, simply taking a pair of earrings that were made for an adult and putting them on a child does not transform that jewelry into children’s earrings. The elements that make the biggest difference between adult earrings and children’s earring is size and safety features.

Earrings for children will be physically smaller than adult earrings. It is not necessarily the earring’s gemstone or other design itself that is smaller; it is the earring post that will be shorter. Long adult earring posts will be too long for children; they can cut into the head of the child and cause injury. Children’s earrings will be designed to fit a child with comfort.
