Im looking for a quality pair of sleepers (small hoops) for my daughter 10 yrs.

All the ones Ive tried are so fiddly & fine thats it impossible to get them on a second time.
Need something with a proper clasp.

I've told my DD"s that until they can manage their own earrings, they must stick to studs. Sleepers are too risky for under 13 really.

risky? How so?

They get caught on things.
Kids needs to have a certain self awareness that they just haven’t learnt, under about 12/13.
Well, normally when they stop rollliing about! grin

Sleepers are snug against the ear and no more likely to get caught than the butterfly on the back of a stud. Probably less likely actually.

That said, OP, I know exactly the type you are after but haven't hunted any out. The alternative to a clasp is a sort of half hoop that still does up with a butterfly.

I've got sleepers like that from ebay with varying quality.

You need the kind that have hinges. I used to have small ones like this but they were in silver rather than gold.

What's wrong with studs?

Any here? I’ve only searched 10mm hoops but you can change search parameters,

My DD has titanium hoops from MetalMorphosis , you pull them slightly to open then push to close up. Titanium is one of the most unreactive metals DD has sensitivities to base metals and low carat gold
Lots of them are tiny (designed to go in cartilidge etc) they use forcepts type tools to close them.

They are <gulp> about £20-£25 per earring !
