Breastmilk Keepsake Jewellery: FAQs
We’re sure you have questions about your breastmilk keepsake jewellery order and the answers are here. Our team have put our heads together to think of the most frequently asked questions we get from our customers. Have a browse and see if you can find what you need here. If not, get in touch and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.
Once you order a piece of breastmilk jewellery, you’ll need to send your breastmilk to the Boob Bling team so we can process your order. But don’t worry, it’s simple! After placing your order, we will send out a breastmilk kit to you, along with a ring sizer if you need one. We only require 5mls of milk to make your jewellery so keep a wee bit in the freezer for now if you’re not ready to order just yet. Once you send the milk back to us we will get it preserved and start the transformation process. You can find out more about the order process here.
How long will my order take?
We estimate that your order will take 8 weeks to complete. Turning breastmilk into a piece of jewellery requires time and craftsmanship. We promise to keep you updated while you wait though. You can sign up for our text message alerts to receive pictures and updates during the process. You can find out more about processing times here.

We send all of our rings and heavier items to the Edinburgh Assay Office. The Assay office is an institution that provides a hallmark stamp on jewellery pieces to indicate the purity of metal. The Assay process has been around since 1300's and means that each individually stamped piece can be tracked back to the maker. Quite amazing!

In one word YES! We never use gold plated metal. We have an extremely talented Goldsmith on the team and we only work with genuine metals. Our Gold keepsake jewellery is all 9ct Gold but if you would like a quote for 18ct Gold please contact us here.
