Placenta or umbilical cord ring because our babies are only small for a moment. They gain their independence so quickly starting from when the umbilical cord is cut separating them from your shared placenta. We will cast a tiny bit of your baby’s cord stump or dried placenta powder into an Ayla umbilical cord ring or placenta solid silver ring encased in crystal clear UV resin. There’s a really informative DIY placenta encapsulation video here on YouTube but please be warned, it’s very graphic!
placenta and umbilical cord ring colour options
You can pick one of our eight colour mixes, or choose “classic cord” for a piece set in clear resin with a white background. Click on this colour options page to see more info about each variation, including how we place each of the colours and shimmers. Each piece will look unique because of the natural colours of the umbilical cord and placenta powder and we can’t predict the results. Colours vary from white to red, black, pink and brown and everything in between.
You can add a first curl as an additional element to any of our umbilical cord and placenta keepsake pieces, just write what you’d like in the box above.
cord and placenta powder sending kits
We’ll send you a kit a week or so after you order and here’s some advice on sending it in, please read it. It’s really important you keep some ash back and don’t send too much. “Less is more” with keepsake jewellery.
Ayla Umbilical Cord Ring Setting
These rings are cast by hand in Scotland from a design Nikki developed for Tree of Opals and their other business, Keepsaker Supplies. Stacking rings can be worn next to one-another and collected just like charm beads. We use Argentium silver for the Ayla Umbilical Cord Ring all of our ring bands, which is a little purer than sterling at 93.5% purity and are less likely to tarnish than sterling. If you’d prefer to DIY this ring then please see the listing here on our sister site Keepsaker Supplies and order it as a breastmilk DIY kit!
You can choose “send sizer” from the ring size dropdown above and we will post one out with your kit. It’s no extra charge. These are comfort fit bands so if you’re in between two sizes, just select the smaller size; they can be easily enlarged in seconds by any jeweller! Please do not use a tape measure to find your ring size, we’ll send you a sizer free of charge with your kit (see our T’s and C’s for more info on ring sizing). If you think you may be smaller than a size M or larger than a size T then please order a Plus Size Ring Sizer here before ordering the ring itself to check, we can refund this if you order and send it back with your kit. Our handmade breastmilk ring here can be made in any size.
engraving your Ayla umbilical cord ring
Engraving can be done in Arial font as standard, Times New Roman, or Silver South Serif but please remember the band is curved so it will curve around so the letters must be small. Click on each font to see it “in action” with your chosen words. We can work with any font, please get in touch to discuss alternatives. We don’t recommend image engraving or handwriting fonts like Vivaldi, Amazone BT or Silver South Script because they would be too small to read. Copy and paste these emojis, sometimes the ones on a phone or tablet aren’t accepted when you try to add to basket!
