Some children have hyper-sensitive skin and don't tolerate metals in contact with their skin, very well. This can result in ear piercings not healing or, once healed, reopening and becoming infected. Other jewellery too, can cause problems, such as bracelets and necklaces causing rashes, and worse.
Surgical Steel is so named because it's safe enough to use as in-body implants. Ditto Titanium. And fortunately for these kids, jewellery manufacturers are now using both surgical steel (316L) and Titanium to make jewellery, including children's jewellery.
I myself, have titanium implants in my back, so can vouch for it.
Baby Jewels has managed to track down children's surgical steel and titanium earrings, bracelets, necklaces and anklets. We've also purchased some Medical Alert bracelets in surgical steel. We now even have spare surgical steel earring nuts for our earrings, in case of loss.
If your child (or you) have problems with sensitivity to even sterling silver and gold jewellery, visit our Surgical Steel and Titanium category. We now have a wide range of children's hypoallergenic earrings and a growing range of children's bracelets, necklaces and anklets. Perhaps you'll find a special Christmas gift there, which will ensure your little girl won't miss out on wearing cute jewellery!
