Good to know
Please treat your jewelry with great care. With careful handling, You will have beautiful jewelry forever. Kindly find some advice for care and storage. These basically apply for all resin-based jewelry.
Avoid direct contact with chemical substances and cosmetics (creams, perfumes, hairspray), salt and chlorinated water, etc. Otherwise the surface of the jewelry can be attacked so it won't shine anymore.
Your jewelry should be removed when showering, bathing or swimming. We do not recommend wearing the jewelry during sports, in the sauna or on very hot summer days, as sweat can attack the jewelry.
Use a dry, soft cotton cloth to clean the jewelry. Please do not use alcohol-based cleaners or nail polish removers.
- Protect the jewelry from long and intense exposure to the sun, as this can cause slight yellowing.
- If the jewelry is not being worn, we recommend storing it in the supplied case.
We only use high quality jewelry settings and resins. However, It is the best to take our care instructions into consideration.
You can still find gold-plated jewelry in the sale. With this, the gold layers wear off after a while until the core made of 925 silver becomes visible.
How many ml of breast milk is needed?
We need 20-30 ml of breast milk for one to two pieces of jewelry. For several pieces of jewelry, we need 40-60 ml of breast milk.
I can't pump that much at once. What should I do?
The milk does not have to be pumped out all at once. You can pump several times until you get the required amount. The breast milk will still be perfectly suitable for creating breast milk jewelry. Please store them in a closed container in the refrigerator until they are shipped.
How old can breast milk be?
Since the milk does not have to be suitable for consumption, it does not matter how old the milk is. The only requirements are that it should not be moldy and it should have been continuously refrigerated or frozen until time of shipment.
How do I pack hair?
Try not to bend or fold the hair at all, otherwise we will have to cast it with the kink in. It's best to pack it in a small bag or aluminum foil and send it along with the milk in an envelope (detailed description under Order Processing and Important Information).
Do I need to ship the whole umbilical cord?
We always send anything left over back with the jewelry. So you can either send us the whole umbilical cord with the clamp or cut off a piece (about the size of a little fingernail). Please note, if you want to have only the light part of the umbilical cord incorporated, we need a piece of it. If you want to have the darker part of the umbilical cord incorporated, then send us a piece of that part.
However, we recommend never sending the whole piece in case the letter gets lost in the mail.
Will gold-plated jewelry stay shiny and gold forever?
In the case of gold-plated jewelry, the layers of the gold-plating can wear off after a period of time, until the piece of jewelry is eventually completely silver. The core is made of 925 sterling silver.
I recommend pieces of jewelry made of 925 sterling silver or real gold, especially when worn regularly. These retain their color and can be worn regularly without becoming tarnished.
Can you make me a piece of jewelry that is not listed as a model, or modify a piece of jewelry according to my wishes?
We try to implement all your suggestions. Other materials, shapes, colors, and more, can be used.
Please contact us and let us know what you'd like. We will then look at whether your ideas are feasible and discuss the cost for your jewelry.
How do I know that it's really my breast milk that's being used?
We guarantee that we use 100% your own breast milk for your personalized jewelry. We want to create a personal and beautiful reminder of your time breastfeeding your child. This is very important to us and we can assure you that to the best of our knowledge and ability, we will fulfill this promise.
Roberta herself is still breastfeeding, and can empathize with your thoughts and feelings. Upon receiving the milk, it is transferred and the containers are labeled. Hair and umbilical cords are also labeled in the same way to leave no room for confusion.
What if the jewelry does not look exactly as I'd imagined or does not completely match my sketch?
We always try our best to implement your requests. Breast milk, hair, umbilical cord, etc. are all natural materials. There's nothing we can do to change this. It might be that, for example, we are unable to form the hair into the desired shape. This means we only have a few minutes to decide on an alternative because the hair, once soaked in resin, needs to be molded quickly. Unfortunately, it's impossible to know from the start whether or not the hair can be shaped.
We then work the hair in such a way that it looks aesthetically pleasing. Similarly, we cannot change the color of your breast milk. This can also mean that, for example, pearlescent shimmers may affect the tone and the color of the jewelry may look slightly different than desired. Please understand that unfortunately we cannot influence or predict this.
Will the jewelry look the same as in the pictures?
We work on your piece of jewelry for many hours by hand, with a lot of love and care. It will never be quite the same as the pictures, but we guarantee you that every piece of jewelry will be as close to the model as possible. Don't forget, your jewelry is unique, just like you.
Why are the pieces of jewelry with dark hair or umbilical cord set in sometimes darker than those without?
Breast milk is never fully opaque white. When we work hair, umbilical cord or other dark components into your jewelry, they often reflect through the milk. That's why it might be that pieces of jewelry with multiple brown components look darker.
Can I deliver the milk in person and pick up the finished jewelry?
USA: You can deliver the milk yourself, but we won't be able to personally receive it every time. We have flexible office hours. But the mailbox is open at all times. It is possible to pick up your jewelry in Florida. Feel free to contact us, if you want to visit us.
GERMANY: You can deliver the milk yourself, but we won't be able to personally receive it. But the mailbox is open at all times. Unfortunately, it is not possible to pick up the jewelry.
