On to the fun part! Shopping for jewelry for kids is a lot like shopping for adults. Take their styles or lifestyles into account. Physically active kids will appreciate something that doesn’t snag or get in the way. Studs or small hoops will stay secure and out of the way when playing. Leather or rubber necklaces or bracelets will stand up to rough-and-tumble activities. If your kids are in organized sports, make sure you know what jewelry is allowed for practice and game days.
Also think about how responsible the child really is. Limit the really precious jewelry to wearing on special occasions or when you can supervise. Accidents and forgetfulness can still happen, but limiting the chances will make you both happier.
