The greatest gift that your wife will get after enduring the discomfort and stress of nine months of pregnancy is, of course, your healthy newborn child snuggled in her arms. But recently, fathers have been taking it a step further and giving new moms baby bauble jewellery to help them commemorate their occasion.
When the gift is given varies: before the birth, after the birth in the delivery room, or even when you bring the baby home. Some of them consider the jewellery a “thank you” to their wife for carrying and bringing this child into the world. Others simply want to make this special day even more memorable for the new moms!
Whatever your reasons are for giving a “baby bauble,” it is always a welcome gesture, and many dads turn to fine custom designer jewellery since it is a meaningful and lasting gift.
Ideas for Baby Bauble Jewellery
Diamond Jewellery – This is the traditional choice for baby bauble jewellery because of the gemstone’s significance. A diamond tennis bracelet or diamond studs that tie in with the design of your engagement ring are classic gifts.
Birthstone Jewellery – Another way to make a baby bauble more meaningful is to incorporate your new child’s birthstone into any types of jewellery: a ring, a necklace, a bracelet, or earrings.
Family Ring – Or what about celebrating your newly formed family? You can incorporate a birthstone to represent each family member so that all of you will always be close to her.
Family Circle Necklace – This is a special type of ring pendant that includes the birthstones of the family members, often incorporating their names in engravings as well. It also sometimes includes a tree design, perhaps to indicate the family tree, or the tree of life.
Bracelet Charms – If you plan to have more children in the future, you can get a charm bracelet and add the birthstone of your first child – and then when you add more members to your family, you can buy your spouse a birthstone charm to represent each of the births of your children.
Stackable Rings – This is a popular alternative to the charm bracelet that still allows you to “add” as your family grows.
Engraving – Just like many people engrave the date of their marriage on the inside of their wedding rings, you can memorialize your child’s date of birth on the baby bauble. Alternately, you can include the baby’s name, or a special message that represents the day to you.
Locket – Allow her to keep her baby close to her heart at all times! If you give it to her while she is still pregnant, she can keep a small picture of the ultrasound in it before the baby’s arrival, and then change it out for a newborn photo after the birth.
Eternity Bands – This is another fantastic way to express your commitment to your wife and your family – forever. You can either go with diamonds all the way across, or do a pattern that includes all family members’ birthstones to make it feel more personalized.
