Children’s jewellery safety guidelines

Your little princesses will want to wear their own pretty jewellery all the time but, to keep them safe as well as looking beautiful, we’d ask that you follow our safety guidelines.

  • 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.

To keep her sterling silver jewellery looking fantastic:

  • All silver jewellery will tarnish over time. We recommend that the best way to keep it looking great is for it to be worn often.
  • Avoid contact with perfumes and soaps which can discolour the jewellery.
  • Remove your jewellery before playing or doing sports.
  • Individual pieces of jewellery should be wrapped in tissue or cloth, or placed in separate compartments in a jewellery box to prevent them becoming scratched or tangled.
  • To keep it looking dazzling, wash it in a mild solution of soap and water using a very soft bristled brush. Rinse it well and then dry it using a soft, lint-free cloth.
  • Use our Jewellery Cleaner for Silver Items. A gentle and non-abrasive polish specially formulated to care for your sterling silver jewellery, it comes with a soft bristled brush and a lint-free polishing cloth.
  • Jewellery should be removed before showering or swimming as soap can leave a film on the surface and chlorine can permanently damage or discolour your jewellery.
