The most popular type of breastmilk jewelry is jewelry featuring pendants or beads made of breastmilk and sealed with transparent resin. You can have it set in sterling silver, 14K solid gold, and rose gold settings. Breastmilk jewelry comes in all kinds of designs – from hand-crafted tiered drops to intricately strung necklaces and earrings – so there’s something perfect for every occasion.

Care Instructions for Breastmilk Jewelry:
1. Keep your Breastmilk Jewelry stored in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight and dampness.
2. Clean your jewelry with a soft, damp cloth when necessary or use a mild soap solution to remove smudges.
3. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush or jewelry cleaning brush to remove any residue or dust that has accumulated on the surfaces of the jewelry piece over time.
4. Avoid using harsh chemicals, abrasives, silver polishes, and other cleaning agents if possible.
5. Do not wear your Breast Milk Jewelry while bathing as this may damage it.
6. If you wish to keep your jewelry looking new and shiny, try applying a thin coating of non-toxic clear nail polish to the piece once a month or so. This will help protect it from tarnishing due to exposure to air and other factors.
7. For pieces set with stones (i.e., emeralds, diamonds), ensure that their setting is checked every now and then for signs of wear and tear (loosening).

Explore the process of creating a custom Breastmilk Jewelry piece
Creating a custom Breastmilk jewelry piece involves several steps. Upon initiating the process, a customer will communicate with the jewelry’s designer to get their desired design specifications. Next, the designer will create a draft of the jewelry in either metal or 3-D printed wax form and make changes per the customer’s requests. Once approved, the metal is casted before going through a series of polishing, oxidation and metal-platings to give them their final shape and color. The designer then sets any gems into place (if applicable) and inspects each piece before engraving.
Then the time comes to infuse the breastmilk; once added to the piece, it is sealed tightly inside to ensure that it lasts without any alterations over time. Finally, your custom jewelry is ready for shipment!
