Please read my disclosure & disclaimer before continuing with this post.
Growing up I was the only girl in my classroom that did not have pierced ears. I didn’t feel any different until it was pointed out by a friend. My mom and dad thought that it was pointless to put me through unnecessary pain as an infant, so they didn’t worry about it. Now that my husband and I have our on daughter yeah, we can totally identify with their reasoning. We just didn’t see the necessity in her having her ears pierced as an infant. I finally got my ears pierced at 10 years old.
Since turning three she has been asking to wear bracelets, rings, and earrings. I decided to give her a sample of my childhood with the nostalgic faux earrings. The difference now from when I was much younger is that there are so many designs and styles to choose from. Stickers, magnetic, and clip-on have all been around for years, but the designs are much more versatile and easier to pass off as pierced ears. I wouldn’t recommend that you purchase these for any girl that is younger than 3 as it may easily become a choking hazard. Magnetic earrings can be extremely dangerous if ingested. As a mom, I feel much more comfortable with my daughter wearing sticker earrings.
These faux pierced earrings are not only cute, but they are so affordable. We purchased ours from Claire’s for about $6 and they are also available at Walmart and on Amazon. At this price, I don’t care if she wears 4 different earrings a day which sometimes she does. When she is ready for the real thing we will get them done at our dermatologist office.
