Like many moms do now around the holidays, Danielle Lloyd, 34, shared her family’s celebrations with others on social media — from baby’s first visit with Santa to the scene of wrapping paper anarchy in the living room post-Christmas morning.


Among the other intimate family moments the mother of four posted for followers was her baby’s present from his grandparents, as Good to Know reports.

Being that Lloyd is a British glamour girl, the grandparents bestowed her three-month-old with a gift noticeably flashier than the average sterling name plate bracelet. The diamond-encrusted cuff, shaped like a wrench (aka spanner), was a nod to the family’s heritage of fixing up cars.


Lloyd captioned the photo:

Ronnie’s diamond spanner bangle from his nanny and granddad bet he can’t wait to start fixing up them cars and motorbikes with your granddad and uncles ???? #luckyboy #ronnies1stchristmas

Fans of Lloyd remarked on the “cute” gift for the tot, but some found a diamond bracelet for a baby wildly impractical. “Too showy this!! Really no need,” wrote one commenter.


Many commenters also couldn’t get past the safety issue of having the diamonds potentially come loose: “That lovely just hope none of it comes of in his mouth xxx.” Others zeroed in on the cuff’s seemingly sharp edges: “Jesus that will take his eye out. Ye let’s put a pointy metal object round the baby’s wrist.”

Fans of Lloyd came to the mom’s defense as they pointed out the prevalence of baby bracelets: “Goodness the comments! Baby bangles have been around for years and traditional in most families!”


According to Parentingsquad, the dangers for children who wear jewelry include allergies, exposure to toxic metals, small parts, scratches, magnetic pieces, and small batteries (if the jewelry has lights on it).

The parenting website recommends parents take several measures to mitigate the risks of children wearing jewelry, which include avoiding cheap items, discussing jewelry with retailers before purchase, and researching recalled products on the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) website. Amber teething necklaces warrant special precaution as the accessory is believed to pose a particular threat of strangulation.


As for Lloyd, she has not responded to the controversy over her baby bracelet, yet one fan’s comment may hint at what the experienced mother plans on doing with the generous gift: “Gorgeous! Bet it’s getting put away into a gorgeous keep sake box xx.”
