We at Baby Jewels, when searching for new stock for our Children's Earrings category, always look firstly to safety. A short earring rod is essential, because children's earlobes are finer than an adult's. A long rod may create irritation around the tender area behind the ear, especially when the wearer is asleep. The earring should be lightweight, have a tight-fitting nut and be small enough that it doesn't overwhelm the earlobe.
What do little girls look for in their earrings? Colour and sparkle seems to be a priority! Colourful crystals in pinks, reds, blues and purples, in particular, are very popular. Also, hand-enamelling over sterling silver, is much loved, and is available in such pretty colours. CZ stones too, in the same popular colours of crystals, provide sparkle. Children are very partial to an earring that dangles, so that they can feel it move as they wear it, and they know that it's movement catches the light. But not all parents share a love of dangly earrings. Some parents believe they are too "grown up." Though that idea seems to be losing ground.
Kids also love "critter earrings" - animal, bird and insect shaped earrings. Most popular style currently is the sterling silver, red enamelled ladybug earrings. Of course, our green turtle earrings and butterfly earrings and dragonfly earrings, have always been very much loved.
Jewelry wearers of all ages, but most especially children, adore jewelry and especially earrings, that feature hearts. Hearts that are colourful and sparkly are popular with both adults and children.
The variety of children's earrings available especially online but also at our local jewelry stores is enormous. Designers have created some irresistable earrings for our children. And kids really love their earrings.
