We have come up with a summary of the most common tips and suggestions for some beautiful pieces.
1. When is It Time for Earrings
There are two ways to pierce the ears. You could choose to pierce them with a disposable needle, where immediately after the ears are pierced, the disinfected earrings of your choice are put on the ears. The second option is to use a piercing gun - in which case the child will get steel earrings put into their ears which must stay on at least until the ears have healed up.
2. Suitable Metals for Children
Moreover, mothers are also very interested in what material the jewelry should be made from. The most important principle is to choose a metal that will not cause allergic reactions. For this reason, silver is not very suitable.
Gold earrings or surgical steel earrings are hypoallergenic. In addition, gold has the advantage that you can choose from either classic yellow gold, or opt for delicate girls' earrings made of rose gold or white gold. And when you invest in quality earrings, you definitely won’t want your princess to lose them.
