When Can Children Wear Jewelry?

Are you thinking about buying jewelry as a gift for a child, but also wonder when it’s safe for kids to start wearing jewelry?

While there's no hard rule, here are some general guidelines to follow to help ensure better fashion safety when you’re dazzling the kiddos in jewelry.  

If you are shopping for that perfect accessory, it’s important to be cautious with jewelry that dangles or has small parts that pose a choking hazard for toddlers.

Here is a safe and spectacular special occasion option! Featuring genuine pearls and a sterling silver clasp to make it safe, this Infant Cultured Pearl Bracelet is perfect for a messy birthday cake smashing, christening celebration, or as an unforgettable keepsake.

Gold jewelry is often a popular choice for children because it's durable and hypoallergenic. Some little ones have negative reactions to non-hypoallergenic piercings, so this is especially important for ear piercings.

If you are on the hunt for kids’ earrings made out of a soft material like gold, and with screwable backs that can be securely fastened, these Baby & Children’s Crystal Cross Earrings in Yellow Gold are an adorable gift to consider.

Did you know that men’s wedding bands can be made of platinum, rose or white gold, titanium, tungsten, silver, and even Damascus steel? We bring you the best men’s wedding band designs!
