Breastmilk Teardrop Ring cast with just your breastmilk in UV resin and set in solid silver. Breastmilk jewellery is a stunning way to remember the close bond you and your little one share. You can find a great La Leche League article on the wonderful properties of human milk here. You can add an additional element like baby’s first curl, umbilical cord or placenta powder too if you like.
Breastmilk 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 milk in the freezer while waiting for your kit, and after you send then keep some back just in case. 15ml is plenty as we will send you two pots. If you prefer you can fill one for us (7ml) and retain the other in your own freezer, it’s very rare we need the second backup pot and this gives low supply clients some extra security.
Breastmilk Teardrop Ring Colour Options
You can choose to include one of our highly pigmented resin colour sparkle mixes to tint your milk, or one of our new breastmilk pearly sparkle mixes. The pearly sparkle mixes are very subtle and will give your milk a hint of colour in certain lights. All of our resin sparkle mixes contain ethical and synthetic mica (free from child mining), plant based eco glitters and opalescent flakes and are hand blended by Nikki.
Boobie awards are a way to celebrate the length of time you’ve been feeding your little one, from amethyst for “we tried our best” to ruby for three years and onwards. For the full Boobie Awards page click here. We have put the most popular as dropdown options but for others please just request them in the comments!
Breastmilk Teardrop Ring Setting
These totally handmade silver rings are available in several different styles of band, each with a 10x8mm teardrop or pear setting. They are handcrafted by keepsake artist and jewellery designers and are made in-house. Stacking rings can be worn next to one-another and collected just like charm beads. We use Argentium silver for all of our ring bands, which is a little purer than sterling at 93.5% purity and are less likely to tarnish than sterling.
engraving your breastmilk teardrop ring
Engraving on wide and 6mm bands is done in Arial font as standard, but please let us know if you’d prefer another font such as Times New Roman, Vivaldi, Amazone BT, or Silver South Serif & Script in the comments of the product before adding it to the basket. 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 recommend Arial, Times New Roman or Silver South Serif for long messages, and handwriting fonts like Vivaldi, Amazone BT or Silver South Script are great for short messages and on larger pieces. Copy and paste these emojis, sometimes the ones on a phone or tablet aren’t accepted when you try to add to basket!

Engraving is done on the inside of our silver bands as standard, please let us know in the comments if you’d prefer it on the outside, We have blogs with memorial quotes here and for image engraving see this page – you can add handwriting, fingerprints, footprints, paw prints and handprints or a special pattern. Please note, we can’t engrave twist or bubble bands
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. Twisted and bubble wire rings will be made in the size provided and are comfort fit and easy to put on. The wide band rings such as textured, brushed and shiny will automatically be made a size bigger to allow for their width. Please do not use a tape measure! See our T’s and C’s for more info on ring sizing. If you think you may be smaller than a size L or larger than a size T then please order a Plus Size Ring Sizer here.
