About Baby Rings & Jewelry:

   In Victorian times, babies commonly wore exquisite gold, and less often, silver bracelets, rings, pins and bib clips. The bracelets were similar to today's "ID" bracelets where a flattened area was engraved with the word "baby". Rings were worn by babies to show elegance and wealth. They were engraved with the word "baby," "pet" or had a gemstone. mostly a garnet to a ruby.

   Pins, or brooches, also were sometimes engraved with the word "baby". Enamelling was sometimes used to in-fill the letters or to add a small floral decoration. Semi-precious stones such as garnets were sometimes set into gold bracelets and brooches.

   Victorian styles are often copied in today's jewellery styles for babies and children. Older children in Victorian times often wore gold or silver book-chain necklaces, cameos and bar pins. Many of these items were beautifully engraved. They became family heirlooms and many Victorian baby and children's jewellery items are now seen on display in museums.
