Choosing the Best Children's Earrings for Tweens and Teens

If you are looking for the best children's earrings, you have come to the right place because at Tween to Teen we stock a large range of children's jewellery suitable both tweens and teens Keep in mind that when it comes to kids jewellery, safety is always a top priority, so make sure to choose earrings that have a safe fastening system and that have posts made from hypoallergenic material, like sterling silver or surgical stainless steel. Without further ado, let's get started!

Stud earrings are a great gift for girls aged 8 - 15, particularly if you are not overly familiar with the taste of the intended gift recipient. We've made sure to choose earrings for our store that have the widest appeal for all tastes and suitable for every occasion, at an affordable price - you just need to check that the girl has her ear pierced first! Stud earrings are a great gift idea as most girls love wearing pretty things and in the younger age group they are sure to be attracted to cute earrings, such as anything with animals, unicorns, butterflies, flowers, lollipops etc. Stud earrings are a great gift choice as they are by far the most practical and more likely to fit in with the active, no-fuss lifestyle of kids in this age group. These type of earrings also tend to be more popular for younger girls as they parents prefer to buy less expensive earrings for kids rather than 14k yellow gold earrings with diamonds - that end up at the bottom of the pool after a pool party. A set of quality sterling silver flower earrings with cubic zirconia are going to be just as loved by a nine-year old girl as the real deal, with fewer tears from parents if the get lost.

What are earrings for best for teenagers

Shopping for teenagers are more discerning in their tastes and therefore stay away from earrings that are too cutesy or look a little childish. Plated yellow gold, silver or rose gold earrings are always a good choice for this age group. Steer away from some of the polymer-clay type earrings as they may look a little childish; however, some of the Wood with Words earrings in our store are still appropriate for this age, as they are fun without appearing childish. Girls of this age also seem to like the small round dots and heart shapes, or brushed metal shapes as the preferred choice to more complex designs as they can pretty much go with every outfit. Earring with cubic zirconia gems instead of precious real stones are still a good choice for younger teens as many still have not developed an appreciation of the value of money and don't always take the best care of their jewellery.

The different types of kids earrings available

There are many different types of kids earrings available on the market today. Quality sterling silver earrings are a great style choice for many girls, as they offer a classic look that can be worn with a variety of outfits and don't cause ear irritations. Yellow gold and rose gold earrings are also another good option, however, they tend to be more expensive than silver; although when shopping at Tween to Teen you will see we have a great selection of plated gold earrings to get the look with a fraction of the price. Rose gold earrings are a relatively new option that is becoming increasingly on-trend, as they offer a unique look that works for any occasion, but it is beneficial to check first as not all girls like the look of rose gold. Lollipop earrings are another popular choice for girls, as they are fun and playful. Wooden earrings are also becoming increasingly popular, as they offer a natural look that is perfect for any outfit.

How to choose the right kids earrings for your child

There are many different types of kids earrings available on the market today. Silver earrings are a classic choice that never goes out of style. They are perfect for any occasion, whether it be a casual day at school or a special family event. Gold earrings add a touch of elegance to any outfit, and they can be worn for both dressy and casual occasions. Fun earrings are a great way to add personality to any outfit, and they are sure to please any child who likes to express their individuality. Earrings for teens are often more understated than those for younger children, but they can still be a great way to add a personal touch to an outfit. No matter what type of kid earrings you are looking for, there is sure to be a pair that is perfect for your child. The other key choice is to stick with studs, or go with something that dangles. This really depends on the your child and the type of activity they will be doing when they wear the earrings. If you child is going to a kids party and jumping around on a jumping castle for instance, or plays sports and swims all the time, then in our opinion it is better if you stick with studs as they are less likely to get caught and pulled out, causing damage to the ear.

How to care for kids earrings

The most effective way to get longevity out of your child's earring collection is to ensure that all the earrings are stored in proper earring holders or storage devices. This will ensure they are kept together and also kept away from moisture. Many of our earrings are solid silver, and therefore will not erode or tarnish. Many of our earrings are for wearing out or wearing with a special outfit. Gold plated jewellery should not be worn in the shower or regularly worn in chlorine etc. as this will hasten the breaking down of the plated metal. All gold plated jewellery should be wiped after use with a damp cloth or with a micro-fibre cloth to remove all smudges and chemical residue. Don't store any earrings in continually damp locations like the bathroom.
