Did you know almost one in every seven children is allergic to nickel? Not only that, most moms don’t know their kids have an allergy to nickel until after they’ve worn a pair of earrings that triggers a reaction. They’re left dealing with the uncomfortable, itchy red ears that make babies grouchy and children miserable.
That’s why when choosing a pair of earrings, you need to look for hypoallergenic and nickel-free earrings. It isn’t as simple as showing kids the colorful options.
While you’re thinking about what style or color they love best, you need to ask these critical questions:
- Are these earrings safe for my child to wear?
- Will they be comfortable?
- Will my child have an unexpected allergic reaction?
- How do I protect my child from low-quality pieces that can cause them discomfort?
Whether it’s their first pair of earrings or a part of a growing collection, we’re here to help you find something that is beautiful, safe and that your child will love for a long time.
Best Bet for Sensitive Ears
Finding earrings that are safe and comfortable is a lot easier than you might think. There are two things you need to have for safe earrings, hypoallergenic and nickel-free. This ensures that your child’s ears will not react to the materials in the earring. Moreover, the two best materials for kid’s earrings are medical grade plastic and medical grade titanium.
Why Hypoallergenic Earrings?
Hypoallergenic jewelry minimizes the risk of an allergic reaction. You may not know if your child has a metal allergy, but buying jewelry made from high-quality metal alloys or pure metals will lower the chances of your child experiencing an allergic reaction.
Typically, hypoallergenic jewelry has extremely low levels of nickel, although we prefer pieces that are entirely nickel-free because this metal causes the most allergies on the skin.
The Comfort of Medical Grade Plastic Earrings
We know kids likely aren’t changing their earrings every day. They usually wear them day after day. Jewelry made of sturdy, lightweight medical-grade plastic is comfortable for all-day wear.
Because medical-grade plastics are naturally nickel-free, they won’t react with even the most sensitive skin. You can rest easy because your child will be free from itchy earlobes and red rashes. To maximize comfort, make sure you’re choosing earrings with flat backs. They won’t snag on your little one’s clothing or hair.
Medical Grade Titanium Earrings for Kids
Earrings made of medical grade titanium are low maintenance. They are incredibly resistant to tarnishing and don’t require polishing. That’s what you need in a kid’s earring.
Titanium is durable enough to last a lifetime. It’s allergy-free so you can feel good buying a pair of skin-friendly earrings that will grow with your child’s style.
