It’s a tradition for Indian babies to wear a thread of black around their wrist, believed to ward off evil spirits. Although the meaning may have worn off a little, people still love to dress babies in traditional jewellery, and baby bangles (nazar kada) are now popular in East and West.
In the UK, the Victorians started to buy kids’ bangles; London jewellers had the idea of engraving tiny bangles with the word ‘baby’, or a pattern or motif. This developed into the personalised baby bangles that you can find today (see our Rose Gold baby bangle, and just ask if you’d like it in a different kind of gold).
We are in an era of lavish expenditure, and babies – especially first-borns – still receive special gifts to mark their arrival. Photograph albums, cots and prams are all useful, but jewellery can be useful and beautiful too. In India jewellery was often regarded as an investment or insurance policy, particularly for a bride, and you could view it this way for a new baby as well. Buying jewellery can be the start of a baby’s collection or inheritance, since gold historically keeps its value and will not fade or vanish to the attic like other gifts.
PureJewels began with one Indian jeweller and remains true to those foundations. Our baby bangles are classic designs in 22ct gold – the best quality for fine jewellery – with jet-black beads and rhodium accents. The black beads come from the ancient tradition of the black thread to ward off evil. If you are looking for a contemporary baby bangle, come into the showroom to see the most recent additions. We have introduced a Rose Gold baby bangles for this season, which can be personalised with baby’s given name.
