When it comes to buying your child earrings, it can be a daunting task to select the perfect pair. If it is your baby’s first pair, the process of selection can get even more overwhelming. Here are a few things you need to consider when selecting a perfect pair of earrings.
Deciding on metal and carat
If you are buying earrings for a baby for the first time, it is natural to be confused between the various options of metals available in the market. Most jewellery stores in Vancouver have several options to offer like sterling silver, 14KT or 18KT gold earrings, etc., for a baby or little girl earrings. It is highly recommended that one opts for the 14KT or 18 KT gold baby earrings for your baby girl’s first pair of earrings. The main reason for this is that your little baby’s ears may be quite sensitive and opting for a high quality 14 or 18KT metal will ensure that they stay protected from infection. Local Vancouver stores like Rain City Jewellers have the most premium quality silver baby earrings with rhodium plating that helps your toddler to stay protected from any adverse reaction to metals or an infection due to new piercing.
One of the most popular concerns with parents is what size of earrings their toddler should wear. The size will depend on your toddler’s ear shape and thickness. Generally, earrings are sized anywhere starting from 1/8″ or 3/16″. An average size runs around 1/4″ which is most suitable for toddlers. It is also important to choose the earring design as per your baby or toddler’s earlobe size and thickness. The post length of most screw back earrings is about 8mm or 9mm, with some having longer or shorter posts. Make sure to take that into account when selecting an earring.
Screwback earring – is it the best choice?
Screw back earrings are the safest choice for toddlers and babies as they do not come out easily and cannot be screwed by your toddler no matter how talented they are. Another variant in the screw back earrings is a covered screw back. A covered screw back has a covering that is flat and won’t poke your baby while they are sleeping.
Yes, our baby earrings with screw backs are very secure. Screw back earrings are the most requested style in baby earrings and children’s earrings. The screw back pieces twist onto the post and stay firmly in place. It is really difficult for a child to remove the screw back by herself, no matter how talented she is with her little hands.
“The earrings have covered screw backs. What does that mean?”
A covered screw back has a closed end (not pierced) to encase the post, and therefore the sharp end of the post doesn’t poke through. This provides superior comfort when sleeping.
When it comes to designs, there are some pretty standard designs available with baby earrings. Most of them include simple studs, stars or tiny butterflies. But they are also available in birthstone, diamonds, etc.
