Are you ready to pierce your baby’s ears? Earrings on infants and baby girls are super adorable. We are experts on baby earrings, so here is our advice.
What Earrings are Best for Baby?
For her first pair of earrings, we recommend earrings with screw on backs. Screw back earrings have threaded posts (like as screw does) and nuts that twist on and tighten once fully screwed on. These screw back pieces stay firmly in place once tightened, but like all screws, can start to loosen up after time, so they need to be checked every now and then and retightened if necessary. A good screw back earring for a baby will stay safely on her ear and she won’t be able to take them off herself.
Our screw back earrings come with covered screw backs, which means that the screw back piece encloses the post. The end of the post will not stick through. This means that your child will have super comfortable earrings when she sleeps or leans her head against something. Our premium quality screw back earrings are highly recommended for her first pair of earrings. They come with an easy to handle screw back piece that is easy for an adult to put on her ear, yet hard for her to get off. The back is less likely than any other type of earring to fall off, so you can say goodbye to lost earrings and you won’t stress about them being a possible choking hazard.
What Size Earring is Best for Baby?
For her first pair of earrings, choose a petite earring design that looks appropriate for her tiny earlobe size. If she is a newborn, remember that she’ll be bigger in no time, so the earring design shouldn’t be too small. Genuine diamonds however look beautiful in any size and are a beautiful earring choice for her first earrings. Family or friends looking to buy a special gift for a newborn often choose a diamond screw back earring. Diamonds are exquisite and timeless.
Keep in mind as well that every baby has a different sized earlobe and shape. Some babies have really large, round earlobes and other babies have very tiny earlobes. Just because she’s a baby doesn’t mean that her earlobes are super small. For an infant, we recommend a 3mm earring. For older babies, we suggest 3mm studs, 4mm studs, or 5mm stud earring styles.
What Earring Metal is Best for Baby?
As for what metal to buy for her first pair of earrings, we do suggest 14K gold since it is hypoallergenic and most children wear it without any allergic reaction. Another popular choice is a rhodium plated sterling silver pair of baby screw back earrings. Rhodium is a form of platinum, so you are buying silver that won’t tarnish and shouldn’t cause an allergic reaction. The price point cant’ be beat and it looks and wears like 14K white gold.
What Styles and Designs Are Best for a Baby?
As for style, we present to you our collection of screw back baby earrings that is unique and extensive.
