At what age can children start wearing jewellery?

Some babies may wear teething necklaces, but generally, many parents start allowing their children to wear jewellery around preschool age, typically between 3 to 5 years old. They may enjoy wearing simple pieces like stud earrings or bracelets under supervision.

However, it's essential to ensure that the jewellery they're wearing is age-appropriate, safe, and comfortable for the child to wear (as many pieces of jewellery could be a choking hazard to babies and small children).

As they grow older, they can gradually explore wearing more jewellery and be taught how to store it and look after it properly,
