|Is the jewellery suitable for Children?
Beads, earrings and any jewellery with small parts is not suitable for children under 3 years old and may present a choking hazard.
We do not recommend that jewellery be given to any child under 36 months.
Jewellery is not a toy and should not be worn for play and extended periods of wear, over 24 hours or whilst sleeping.
Our children’s earrings are not suitable for initial piercing or the healing period.
Earrings should be cleaned frequently to help prevent infection. Simply clean them with warm water and mild soap before rinsing thoroughly with warm water and drying with a clean soft cloth.
When fitting earrings, please be careful when pushing the butterfly backs onto the stems. Earrings that are worn too tight may become embedded in the earlobe.
Do not allow children to put jewellery in their mouth.
To ensure it doesn’t become too tight, your child’s jewellery will need to be replaced as they grow. Please don’t allow them wear an item which is too small for them.
