I recently came into contact with Precious Mammaries, a breastmilk jewelry company. They offered to send me their product for free in exchange for a review. All opinions in this review are my own.

I’ve always wanted to purchase breastmilk jewelry, but I’ve never found a company that I trusted and couldn’t justify their expensive prices. When I came into contact with Precious Mammaries, I knew that it was going to be an amazing experience. Their response time to questions was fantastic, they are very polite in interactions, and I felt safe with sending my breastmilk off to their company.
Just to give you a little bit of an idea about the process, I had to pump a few teaspoons of breastmilk for this. It was slightly difficult because I do not respond well to a pump but so incredibly worth it. I put the milk in a bottle and then sealed two plastic bags around it in case of leakage. Then I mailed it off.
The time to make the jewelry wasn’t bad at all, a week or less I believe. I was able to select the chain, which was fantastic since I am allergic to metal. They had a hypo allergenic option that suited my skin, which I haven’t seen as an option with many other companies. There were several options for different types of necklaces and earrings, all beautiful! Mine is a teardrop shape which you can see here:
The teardrop itself is gorgeous, every one that they make is unique based on everyone’s individual breastmilk. My husband described it as a cross between opal and pearl looking, but there are little ridges inside that are mesmerizing! You can see them clearly in this photo:
Because this jewelry is rather delicate due to the materials used, it should be kept away from direct heat, sunlight, humidity, and water. This means it isn’t something to wear while working out, doing manual labor, etc, but I wore mine to church this morning and showed it to nearly everyone; I am very proud of it.
My jewelry came with a certificate with my name and my son’s name as well as the month and date the jewelry was made. I’m overjoyed with the project and grateful to have something from what will likely be my only time breastfeeding.
If you are like me and want to preserve some breastmilk from your nursing journey (or have jewelry made out of placenta, ashes, or hair), I highly recommend checking out Precious Mammaries! They were great to work with, response time to questions was fantastic, and the prices are pretty reasonable compared to other companies.
