Titanium is hypoallergenic so a good choice. These are DD's favourites, bought for her the Christmas after she had her ears pierced

My DD has lobe and cartilidge piercings (the cartilidge ones stay in so YY to titanium for those)

She uses mainly sterling silver ( its purer than low carat gold and less ££ too)

Fir a fairly new piercing , make sure the post is thick enough , long enough and the butterfly is big enough ( you don't want to risk pushing a small butterfly too tight on a short post)

I have some Diamonique huggies from QVC (that DD now wears) they are tiny , size of a 5p, nice 'click' when they close .

I have some screw-backs , bit of a faff to get on, but then they're secure . I don't change mine often though.

Places I'd avoid (through personal experience) :
Claires - I bought some that had a rough bit on the post , made my ear bleed Shock and I'd had mine pierced 38 years . I had a nightmare getting a refund (You've worn them, pierced earrings are except from exchange etc) . I just stood in the (very busy ) shop saying they were not fit for purpose so I was legally entitled to a refund , until they accepted .

Accessorize - ok, not the most £ but so flimsy , lose stones even on the display card Hmm

Is she a young teenager or older teenager? I think the style would depend on the age really.

I get a lot of lovely studs from a seller called ilovesilverjewellery on eBay. The quality is lovely and the seller is brilliant.

@sleepismysuperpower1, Primark have those Picasso earrings at the moment. I think they're about £3.
