Posted on 11 October 2017
Newborn jewelry can be a great gift for a new baby in your life, but it’s important to understand a few key things before purchasing jewelry for your little one. Read on to learn more about newborn jewelry and the different options available for newly born babies.
Things to Consider when Buying Newborn Jewelry
Since newborns are so small and hypersensitive to new materials and substances, it’s important to consider their health and safety when shopping for newborn jewelry. Here are a few key things to keep in mind before making your purchase:
- Material - It’s best to purchase jewelry made of hypoallergenic materials such as solid gold, sterling silver or fine metal plated to minimize the risk of an allergic reaction.
- Size - Newborn jewelry should be properly sized to fit tiny wrists, ears and necks.
- Design - Make sure that the design of your newborn jewelry is appropriate for a newborn baby, Things like dangly charms can get caught easily, which poses a safety hazard.
Types of Newborn Jewelry
Newborn bracelets are popular for a variety of reasons. Some parents may choose to purchase a newborn bracelet for gender identification purposes or to indicate a medical condition. Others may simply want to buy a bracelet as a keepsake for their newborn. Whatever the case may be, newborn bracelets make an excellent option for baby jewelry.
Newborn wrists are very tiny, so it’s important to make sure your bracelet is properly sized for babies. Otherwise, it can slip off fairly easily.
As with other newborn jewelry, it’s important that whatever bracelet you choose is made of a hypoallergenic material to minimize the risk of an allergic reaction.
There is much debate over the appropriate age for a child to get his or her ears pierced. In some cultures, babies’ ears are pierced just a few days after birth. Others wait a bit longer to pierce babies’ ears.
If your doctor gives you the clear to pierce your newborn’s ears (some doctors or nurses might even do this themselves), make sure that the earrings you use are appropriate for newborns. We recommend stud earrings made of a hypoallergenic material such as sterling silver or 18K gold.
Necklaces can be wonderful gifts for newborns, but it’s essential that they’re properly sized. Properly sizing your newborn’s necklace will prevent it from slipping off and ensure that it’s as comfortable as possible for your baby to wear. Additionally, you don’t want the necklace to be too tight (like a choker) as this can be a safety hazard.
We offer a wide assortment of necklaces for newborns, including religious necklaces and pendant necklaces. You’ll find necklaces made with gorgeous hypoallergenic materials such as sterling silver and 14 and 18 karat gold plated items.
It’s important to highlight, children under three (3) years of age must be supervised at all times while wearing our jewelry. Never leave a child under the age of three unattended while wearing any jewelry product. Remove all jewelry before napping, riding in a car seat, bath-time, unattended playtime, or bedtime.
