Of course, those words aren't limited to describing babies.
dabangay= obese in our area

it has other negative connotations as well

This is taken from http://dsal.uchicago.edu/dictionaries/raverty/

زیور zewar
P زیور zewar, s.m. (2nd) An ornament of gold, or silver, jewelry. Pl. زیورونه zewarūnah.

I have heard it used as کاليَ ?? I know that کاليَ means clothing, but has anyone heard this used when referring to jewelry also?

Another word I found was:

1. ګاڼه [ ] ( ) jewellery, ornament
