A tiny keepsake, to commemorate the newest member of the family. Baby rings were well-loved by the Victorians, who were at once sentimental and practical. With infant mortality as high as it was (globally, in 1880, around 38% of children died before they reached the age of 5), a piece of jewelry marked the occasion of the birth and could also be held close as a keepsake at a time when photographs of a lost child weren't readily available.

We love the small scale of these pieces, and the way they can elevate an everyday ring stack by being worn as a pinky or midi ring, or strung along a chain with other charms and talismans. This would make a great gift for a new parent, the baby of your family, or your love. Or maybe just for you - cuz you're nobody's baby!
