Desperately seeking ideas for christening gifts? Saffron Bells are the UK’s only designer Thai-style silver baby anklet with bells. For births, christenings, first birthdays and beyond, Saffron Bells last from birth until the teenage years. Even HRH Princess Charlotte was sent one…
Welcome to the world’s only designer baby-anklet label. At Saffron Bells, we love baby feet. We love kissing them, squishing them and this-little-piggying their tiny prawn toes. And that’s why we are so insanely proud of our Saffron Bells baby anklets with bells, because these unusual baby gifts mean little feet (and wrists!) get noticed wherever they go.
Saffron Bells have a cult celebrity following. Our anklets are owned and loved by Amal and George Clooney, Erin O’Connor, Sienna Miller, Amanda Holden, Fearne Wood, Una Healy, Katie Price, Jenny Frost, Amanda Lamb, Danielle Lloyd, Billie Faiers, Laura Hamilton, Sarah Cawood, Michelle Heaton and many more. Seen in Vogue, Tatler, Harper’s Bazaar, The Guardian and, well, all over the British press, Saffron Bells have become the unusual baby gift idea on everyone’s lips. They were even featured as the No.1 royal baby jewellery gift by Grazia, HELLO!, Daily Mail, Reveal and Sunday Express… HRH Princess Charlotte and Prince George of Cambridge were given Saffron Bells anklets (and also our Memory Orb); while Zara Phillips was given a Saffron Bells Wish Chime ball.
In Thailand, the jingling of anklet bells is said to ward off evil spirits. It is traditional to place tiny tinkling bangles – ‘kumrai kortao’ – on the gorgeous little ankles of baby girls and boys, for ‘protection’. And, well, we admit it: since adopting this sweet Thai custom we have become rather spiritual silver junkies here in SB world. But centuries-old Thai traditions aside, Saffron Bells’ sweet little bells (that represent love, health, success and gratitude) have another use too. They gently jingle with every movement. So from kicking to crawling and from first steps to footsteps, you can hear your tiny person at all times and keep them safe.
Our anklets are wrist bracelets too. Handmade with solid silver, expandable Saffron Bells bangles grow with the child. As anklets they are suitable from birth and can be worn well into toddlerhood. But they can simultaneously be worn as wrist bracelets too – right up until the teenage years – giving the most fantastic value. Indeed, some people buy them simply as wrist bangles in the first place. But unlike traditional baby wrist bracelets that weigh in at a flimsy 4 or 5g, Saffron Bells silver anklet pairs are a much more substantial and deluxe 23g. And as such, we are proud to be the only UKAS-approved (safety-tested) expandable silver baby-anklet with bells in the UK.
Avoid ‘gift repetition’. We all know that a unique ‘baby’s first Christmas’, christening or birth gift that no one else has thought of is like gold (or silver) dust. That’s why we are so thrilled to present these innovative and one-of-a-kind-in-the-UK Saffron Bells baby anklets. Enjoy…
