Will My Breastmilk Jewellery Discolour?

When I receive your precious breastmilk it is carefully preserved. It is then combined with high-quality jewellery-grade resin using a special technique perfected by Cotswold Keepsakes. The end result is a shimmering pearly-white to creamy-white piece of hard resin jewellery that reflects the unique characteristics of your own breastmilk.


The photo below shows two Breastmilk Beads by Cotswold Keepsakes - a new product on the left, and my own original breastmilk bead on the right. Since creating this bead in 2014, I have worn it most days on my necklace. As you can see, it is very slightly discoloured and is a little creamier-looking than the new product, but in my opinion it still looks great. No filters or tweaking.

Any colour change that might occur has nothing to do with your breastmilk going off, in fact exposure of any resin-containing compound to UV light or to solvent based liquids (including perfume and skin products) will cause a subtle colour change in resin over longer periods of time. If you were to store your piece of breastmilk jewellery away from natural light (as a keepsake for the future as an example) you will find that it undergoes very minimal colour change over many years.


With your finished jewellery you will receive a product care card, following these care instructions will help keep your jewellery in the best possible condition.
