Kids and Jewelry: Sizing and Safety Tips

Hey there, jewelry fans and parents of future gemstone aficionados! Jewelry isn't just for grown-ups. From birthstone rings to charm bracelets, kids love a bit of sparkle too. But when it comes to our little ones, sizing and safety take on extra significance. So let's delve into the tips and tricks for kids' jewelry.

Size Matters, Especially for Kids


  • Wiggle Room: Kids grow fast; always leave a bit of room for growth.


  • The Two-Finger Rule: You should be able to slide two fingers between the bracelet and the wrist.


  • Length: Shorter necklaces can be a choking hazard; aim for a length that can't be put into mouths but is still comfortable.

Safety First: Materials


  • Hypoallergenic Materials: Consider Argentium silver or gold-fill, both of which are less likely to cause allergic reactions.

Quality Over Quantity

  • Less is More: Opt for fewer, better-quality pieces to minimize risks associated with cheaper materials like lead.

Clasps and Closures: Keep It Secure

  • Magnetic vs. Traditional: Magnetic can be easier for kids to manage, but make sure they are strong enough to stay put.

The Age Factor: What's Appropriate When

  • Toddlers and Below: Stick to soft, pliable materials with no small parts.

  • School-Age: More options open up; just be mindful of school rules regarding jewelry.

  • Teens: By this age, they can wear adult jewelry, but sizing may still be an issue.

Seasonal Considerations

  • Summer vs. Winter: Different seasons may require different lengths and sizes due to clothing bulk or outdoor activities.


When it comes to children and jewelry, safety and comfort should always be your top priorities. But with a bit of knowledge and caution, you can let your little ones shine just as brightly as you do. Stay tuned for our next article, where we'll tackle the art of gifting jewelry—because who doesn't love receiving a shiny new piece?
