Should I buy sterling silver, 14KT gold, or 18KT gold earrings?
We highly recommend you choose 14KT gold earrings or 18KT gold earrings for her first pair of earrings since a little one’s ears. However, our sterling silver screw back baby earrings are rhodium plated which provides a hypo-allergenic coating and therefore do not cause the usual irritation many people experience with silver jewelry.
What size earring is good for a baby or toddler?
We recommend looking at the Product Info chart for each item to find out how large the face of the earring is. The smallest baby earring style we carry has a 1/8″ or 3/16″ design. These are extremely petite.
Most of our earrings styles have a 1/4″ design which is perfectly sized for babies (except newborns),toddlers and young girls.
The standard post length of our screw back earrings is 8mm or 9mm. A few styles have posts that are a little shorter or a little longer. The post length for each style is also listed under Length in the Product Info chart.
The following styles are most prefered for babies and toddlers:
- screw back earrings with threaded posts
- small hoop or huggie earrings
- dangle earrings – small dangle or lever back earrings perfectly sized for little ears
Why are screw back earrings so preferred? Screw on back earrings are the most requested style in baby earrings and children’s earrings. They are crafted with screw-on backings that 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 adorable little hands.
What are covered screw back earrings?
Covered screw backs mean the the sharp post of the earring doesn’t poke through the backing. The backing has a closed, rounded end which encases the post. This provides superior comfort, especially if the child is wearing the earrings when she sleeps and her ear is pressed against a pillow.
