This Solid 9ct or 14ct Gold Hallmarked Umbilical Cord or Placenta Teardrop Necklace 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 stones. 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 and keepsake 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 nineteen colour mixes, or choose “classic cord” for your gold cord teardrop necklace. 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.
*tw baby loss* If you are looking for a memorial piece for a baby or child then please email Nikki on firstname.lastname@example.org 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 Cord Teardrop Necklace
The solid gold teardrop setting is hallmarked with the Tree of Opals sponsor mark at the Birmingham Assay Office. They are cast for us in small batches and hand finished. They are 10x8mm teardrop or pear shaped settings with crown points and are marked 375 on the back on our hallmark.
They come with a 18″/45cm very lightweight chain. If you already have a chain or would like to purchase solid gold chain from us here we are happy to give you a £20 discount on this necklace. They also make stunning dangle charms for Pandora or Thomas Sabo style bracelets, please get in touch to order (additional prices apply due to needing to be re-hallmarked).
