Gold and grey bangle baby bracelet

Bangle Bracelets

A solid metal bangle is appropriate for any baby or child as there are no little parts for to harm curious hands or teething babies. Most baby bangles are hinged to ensure you'll always be able to take the bracelet on and off as the child grows. If you're worried about hinges, baby cuffs come in similar designs but are still easy to remove. For a classic look, choose solid metal bangles or ones with simple filigree engravings. It's a thoughtful idea to engrave baby’s name or initials into a bracelet for a personalized gift. You can also find bangles with pretty enamel designs or securely set stones for a special look.

Charm Bracelets

Baby bracelets with charms are perfect for newborns or older children, but they might not be as appropriate for teething babies. Most manufacturers use methods to make sure charms on baby jewelry won't come loose with normal pulling and teething, but some parents may wish to avoid dangling charms anyway. A charm bracelet with a birthstone may be perfect for baby's first birthday, or you can choose a charm that has special meaning to you and your family. Baby charm bracelets come in the form of bangles, chains, and beaded bracelets.


Pink and white beaded baby bracelet

Beaded Bracelets

You'll find the largest amount of options when you choose a beaded or pearl bracelet for baby. As with baby charm bracelets, you may feel more comfortable giving beaded bracelets to newborns and non-teething tots since many small parts are involved. Choose a beaded bracelet that includes a cross, a Star of David, or another religious symbol for baby’s baptism, christening, bris, or naming ceremony. Aside from religions symbols, you can find almost any color and motif your heart desires when buying a bracelet for baby. Beaded baby bracelets are often on elasticized bands, but they also come with traditional spring ring or lobster claw clasps.
