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 umbilical cord 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.
Umbilical Cord Ring
These totally handmade Sterling silver rings are available in several different styles of setting. They are handcrafted by keepsake artist and jewellery designer Nikki Kamminga and are made in-house. Stacking rings can be worn next to one-another and collected just like charm beads. Some people like to combine metals like gold and platinum in their stack.
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.
engraving your umbilical cord ring
Add your text, up to 60 characters – upper and lower case, numbers and punctuation in your chosen font. You can choose Roman numerals, birth, marriage or death coordinates (we’re happy to help you work that out), or messages of love, hope, and remembrance. We are even happy to include more “colourful” language. The more letters you choose, the smaller the writing will be. 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 like the 6mm shiny wide ring option. Here are some special characters you can copy and paste.
