The big school holidays are nearly over for another year. Summer memories have been made and now you’re doing all the usual back to school prep like stocking up on stationery and uniform shopping. And aside from knowing what type of shirt and what colour tie to buy, it’s also important to note what jewellery, especially earrings, your youngster's school will allow.
Perhaps your little one is graduating from primary to secondary school and the rules have changed. Or maybe your teen had their ears pierced for the first time over the holidays. Either way it’s best to check their school’s policy on earrings so they don’t land themselves in hot water by wearing a pair that’s inappropriate on the first day back. Whilst the rules will vary from school to school, most will allow a pair of discreet stud earrings. Here’s our pick of the best styles that prove you can keep to the rules without being boring.
1. The Classic Circular Stud.
Children’s earrings don’t come more traditional than the timeless circular stud. They’re subtle enough not to draw too much attention but still come in lots of stylish options for fashion conscious teens.
Our round, flat surfaced stud earrings are available in several different variations. There’s our classic 5mm style in silver, gold and rose gold or the mini 4mm version for smaller lobes in gold and silver. If your child’s school allows something a little bit jazzier, our sandblasted round hypoallergenic earrings or flat brushed silver studs are two more great options.
2. Geometric Shapes
Get your little ones in the back-to-school spirit and ready for their maths lessons with a pair of geometric studs. We’ve got loads of different designs for you to choose from. There’s our crescent moon, star, triangle and hexagon shaped allergy free earrings. But one of the most popular choices is of course the love heart.
Our regular heart shaped studs come in silver, gold and rose gold. Or there's our open hearts, which are a more modern take on the classic, in gold and silver. Mini versions of our classic and open styles are also available if there are restrictions on the size of stud your child can wear to school.
There’s still plenty of scope if your child would prefer something a little more playful and unique for school. Animal lovers have a whole host of options to choose from including horses, dogs, elephants and cats. Or if your little one is more of a flower child, we have the perfect pair of mini daisy studs whilst music fans will love our musical note studs.
Whichever you go for, you can be safe in the knowledge that all our studs are made from stainless steel which makes them ideal for new piercings as they won’t cause an allergic reaction like gold or silver can.
