A mum has shocked the internet with an engagement ring she claims is made out of breast milk and her son’s umbilical cord.

Sharing a photo online, the woman revealed ‘Posting because I LOVE my wedding band! I gravitate towards vintage rings. I also love the gold ring because it’s a keepsake ring,’ she wrote on Facebook.

Explaining that the stone is made of breastmilk, her sons umbilical cord and pieces of both her sons hair mixed with gold flakes, shared Daily mail.

Her post was then shared in a ring shaming group where hundreds of commenters expressed how horrified they were with the style.

Many commented that they weren’t shocked by the use of breast milk as it’s slowly becoming more common in jewellery, but the idea of the umbilical cord and hair left them feeling sick.

Probably not really my style, but I do love the idea of such a special keepsake.

  • Such a creative way of paying tribute to your children and marriage, I love this idea and what a gorgeous stone!


  • Think it’s a lovely ring with a special meaning.


  • Seems more about her children than her finance. I wouldn’t do it but whatever works.


  • Not something I would ever do. I wonder how long before it starts to deteriorate.
    I hope she doesn’t scratch her baby with her finger nails


  • I had this ring made from my breast milk. I love it and to be honest, I don’t care what anyone else thinks because they don’t have to like it!

    • I think it’s beautiful !

      • Love the colour !
        And good on you for not caring what anybody else thinks, that is totally not important.


  • It’s amazing she can wear everyday


  • I wouldn’t have this as my ring, but each go their own.


  • Each to their own but no thank you.


  • It’s indeed a nice idea and full of sweet memories! :-)


  • I think the ring is beautiful and made from such meaningful items. I would like to have one.


  • Not my cup of tea but she loves it and that’s what counts!


  • Um no…it’s a bit ridiculous for me.


  • Half of me thinks it sounds rather creepy, half loves how special and meaningful it is.


  • You know you’ve been watching too much supernatural when all you can think is how Sam and Dean will have to track it down and set it on fire one day to kill a ghost.


  • It’s a little odd, but whatever floats her boat!
