This solid gold umbilical cord orb helps us keep our babies close even though they’re 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 resin and give you a choice of spheres. You can see Nikki’s YouTube tutorials here and know that I never film without your permission. I’m considered an expert and offer advanced courses in making breastmilk jewellery, so you’re in safe hands. You might see my designs and stock images elsewhere because other breastmilk artists buy them from me over on Keepsaker Supplies (you’re welcome to buy from there if you’d rather DIY!)

placenta and umbilical cord orb colour options

You can pick one of our eight colour mixes, or choose “classic cord” for your gold umbilical cord orb. 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.

adding hair

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.

*tw baby loss* If you are looking for a memorial piece for a baby or child then please email Nikki on who will try to reply straight away. We have some instructions on our Baby Memorial Jewellery page (click here) on how to save hair, placenta and umbilical cord if your baby is to be born sleeping and ash if they are cremated.

Gold Umbilical Cord Orb

Solid Gold Orb Findings

This listing is for a single “orb” which comes as standard as an 11mm orb with a solid 9ct yellow gold hand wire wrapped setting and now includes a fine 18″/45cm solid gold chain, European setting for Pandora bracelets or 11mm lobster claw. These are not hallmarked as they are under 1g of gold. The solid gold orb settings will now all be made flat at the bottom (without the little ball) with a 6mm wide domed base. Because the orbs are fully drilled, they are far more secure than settings that are glued-on.

The loop on the top is custom made to suit your setting. If you choose a lobster clasp or European dangle charm setting the loop will be made very small and the setting added as it’s being made. If you choose a necklace chain setting, the loop will be large enough to fit on that necklace, if you have a necklace upgrade then the loop will be large enough for that chain. If you wish to use your own chain, please let us know its maximum width to the nearest 0.5mm when you order, and we will make the loop large enough. Please see the product image gallery for examples.

Choose your options then click on the individual settings, such as necklace, to see the information. You can see a selection of gold chains here. If you choose the necklace setting we’re happy to give you a £20 discount on any chain upgrade (please ask).
