Birthday earrings? [Nov. 20th, 2009|02:53 pm]
Do any of my friends know of any earrings that might be 5th grader appropriate that are web browsable?

Bonus gifts for web-browsable confirmation style gifts, which might include similarly-aged appropriate jewelry (but not for the same person). I don't know if there's any Elise-sale going on, and I'm time constrained at the moment, so I hate to ask questions that can be answered "JFBI"... but there, I did.

Wyrding Studios makes some very lovely things, similar to Elise's work. http://wyrdingstudios.com/available.php

Cultured pearl studs. Always appropriate.
The crap from places that cater to 5th graders is likely to cause infections and/or fall apart. Most decent jewelry chains will sell small pearl earrings at a reasonable price. (In fact, a jeweler in the nearby mall is giving them away free just for coming into their store - that's how desperate they are for business.)

The earrings I wear most of the time, a pair of very small thick titanium hoops, were actually designated on the page as being appropriate for young girls, probably because they're small and very lightweight. (I chose them because they can be left in my ears for weeks at a time -- they're comfortable enough to sleep in.) I got them on Amazon.com.

www.ross-simons.com and search for 'children's earrings' and/or 'pearl earrings'. Some of the children's earrings have screw backs (pierced with a screw-on post) - which a 5th grader might find uncool. There is a pair of cross earrings for the confirmand too.
