The Complete Guide Magnetic Earrings [2019 Edition]

Magnetic earrings are extremely convenient, particularly for parents. After all, not every parent wants to pierce their child’s ear while they’re still young.

If you’re hesitant to pierce your child’s ear, these are a great alternative.

But, many parents wonder:

Are magnetic earrings safe?

It’s a good question. I mean, not every parent wants to put magnets on their child’s head. But, unless your kid has a metal plate somewhere in their cranium, they should be okay.


Magnetic earrings are a choking hazard. Like any other small, metal object, they can get stuck in your child’s throat when swallowed.

So, you may not want to put these on a baby. They detach very easily and you don’t want your little one swallowing them.

Magnetic earrings are a popular alternative to traditional pierced earrings. As their name suggests, they operate using magnetics.

They’re very easy to use. Each ring comes in two parts:

A decorative part with a magnetic backside
A purely functional magnetic element

Essentially, you wear them by placing the decorative part on the front of your earlobe. and the magnetic element on the back. The two elements adhere to your ear by pulling toward one another.

Generally, magnetic earrings adhere to your ears pretty well. Of course, they do so as long as they’re made from high-quality materials.

It’s important that the magnets are strong. If you buy poorly made magnets, they’ll work for a few weeks. But, it won’t take long for them to wear out.

Also, you should make sure to keep them clean. Dirt, dust, hair, and even hairspray can cause the magnets to get weaker.
