Children always imitate adults - this is inherent by nature. Kids copy the gait, gestures and speech of their parents. Trying to be like dads and moms, children try on their things: from clothes to jewelry. Looking at such games, many parents decide to give their child their own jewelry. We hope that this article will help to make the right choice of jewelry for children.
Usually the first decoration in the life of a child is the cross that is received during a baptism. It is put on the neck of the child with a lace or chain, the length of which should be sufficient. The optimal length is from 40 to 45 cm. It is important to pay attention to the reliability of the lock and the strength of the chain. For children, it is preferable to choose round in shape products so that the child does not cling to the cross with clothing and could not accidentally get injured with their sharp edges. Many parents do not dare to buy a metal chain, putting a cross on the cord, which is given in the church. It is also better to choose silver jewelry for children, because silver is the only metal that does not cause allergic reactions.
Earrings for girls
Many parents pierce ears of their under one year old daughters, believing that later this procedure is felt more painfully and leave unpleasant memories. The healing process is much faster, if you choose silver jewelry. For children, this is an ideal option, because silver has antibacterial properties. An important aspect in choosing children's earrings is their weight - the product should be as light as possible (up to 2.5 g). The lock on the earrings should be reliable, and the shape of the decoration should let a child easily walk and rest. It’s often earrings studs or small rings. Children of school age can choose products with stones, a larger weight, a larger shape, with convex decor elements. But for the youngest, the best choice is products without inserts, made only of silver. They can be decorated with enamel.
Jewelries for older children are pendants, rings, chains, earrings, bracelets and brooches. Many manufacturers of children's products produce "torn" rings, which "grow" with the child. The shapes of silver jewelries for children are the things that are familiar to kids - figurines of flowers, animals, insects, cartoon characters, cars or toys. Usually stone inserts and various decors of children's jewelries are painted in bright colors. Precious stones in such products are rare. Cubic zirconia is used much more often.
