carolinabelle :  I agree.  No cause; I’m just suprised by the group sentiment.  I am not on a mission to make every one love breastmilk or breastmilk jewelry.  To each their own, I’m just sharing my take on it.

Not my cup of tea but to each their own. I bought myself a lovely ring with my daughter’s birthstone instead.

I do think it’s kind of funny that people will readily drink milk from a cow’s udder, but somehow breast milk from a person is on the same level as semen and poop. Like really people?

I definitely think these reactions are extreme. I wouldn’t want one but don’t see the problem.

MrsF1234, do you wear non vegan perfumes and other cosmetics? If so, it’s okay to wear animal secretions but not breast milk?

I’m surprised by the strong reactions as well. It’s not something I would want for myself, but I find the idea intriguing, not gross! I saw one website that absolutely made placenta jewelery too. That went a bit far for me. You could choose what color glitter to put in it….bleh!

I know, right? What kind of idiot wants a ring to symbolize or commemorate an important or significant time in their life? Oh wait. This is a wedding website and almost everyone here wears *at least* one ring like that. Millions and billions of people have done it. Isn’t the wedding and/or husband enough?

I wish I was more surprised by all the “ewwwww gross” comments. It’s a little bit of milk in some resin. It doesn’t smell or spoil. It’s not disgusting or something to be compared with bodily waste.

I worked really freaking hard to breastfeed. I am proud of what my body has achieved, not only for my baby, but also through donating milk and helping several other women and their babies. I would love a ring like that to remind me of my strength and perseverance.

I am really shocked by some of these responses! Not your cup of tea? Fine. But I think comparing it to diarrhea is a little extreme. My sister recently got one of these as a gift from her husband and she loves it. Breastfeeding has been such a special and important time of her life and this was a nice way of marking it. She’s a pretty private person, so I doubt she’s announcing the ring is made from breastmilk…it’s her special memento. I am having a hard time wrapping my mind around it being gross. I’ve spilled her milk all over myself while feeding my nephew and it was just as gross as spilling cow’s milk…

Personally I want one. I don’t understand how dried up and turned into resin milk is so so gross. 

I’m 40 on my last baby. I have 5 children. 3 of them adults now. I have failed and fought through feeding my children. There is nothing as beautiful as a mother than choking that baby too you and continuing to nurse it outside your body. It’s very special and intimate too me personally. Something I will never do again after my son weans.  I would love a ring or pendant to commemorate my nursing.  I think when we come close to ending I will get one. It may sit in my jewellery box but it will remind me of all those quiet special moments where I held my children when they were tiny and small and needed me so much.
