About: I'm 24 years old junior designer that totally obsessed with fashion trends. Also I'm fond of IT-tech and PC gaming.

Fashion allows children to express themselves in a manner that is healthy for their self-esteem. Therefore, when you are looking for children’s outfits and hair fashion, you will require kids’ jewelry. Both boys and girls like complimenting their clothes with fashionable jewelry.

While infants and toddlers look beautiful when dressed up in stunning jewelry, you should resist the temptation. Young kids enjoy putting everything they come across in their mouths, and there are many risks associated with jewelry, including:

  • Some pieces of jewelry have toxic coatings
  • Jewels and beads pose choking hazards
  • Young kids suffer cuts from metals, jewels, and beads when they put them in their young mouths
  • Clasps can easily loosen and pose choking risks
  • Necklaces and chords pose strangulation hazards
  • Young kids can take out earrings, which presents choking hazards

  • Forbid the young kid from putting the costume-jewelry in her mouth
  • Monitor the kid always, especially if she is wearing jewelry

  • Take out the earrings if your kids like to tug or pull them
