Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

The Close to My Heart Locket is the most customizable piece of jewelry we have. The front has your own debossed engraving – a footprint, handprint, pawprint, initials, a name, or a significant date – making each locket uniquely yours. Open it up to find another space on the left for a personal message, handwriting, text or meaningful phrase. The right side holds the keepsake stone, made with your own keepsake(s): breastmilk, ashes, lock of hair, pregnancy test, dried flowers, sand, anything special to you.

I named this locket "Close to My Heart" because the one that you see in these photos is the locket I made for myself with my soul dog Mochi's ashes/fur/collar and engraved with his pawprint on the front. It is so special to me and it is the piece that I personally wear most often. It is how I always keep him close to my heart in a tangible way.

When you wear your Close to My Heart Locket, you carry a piece of someone special with you always. It's a constant reminder of the sacred moments and memories that you can keep "close to your heart" forever.

• The Close to My Heart Locket blends delicate charm with minimalist elegance in its perfectly proportioned design.

• We offer this piece in 925 sterling silver, 18K yellow gold vermeil, 18K solid yellow gold, 18K solid rose gold, and 14K solid white gold.

• The front has a spot for your custom engraving (debossed style): a footprint, handprint, text, etc. When you open the locket, on the left side is a spot for another custom engraving - a date, name, phrase, anything special to you! On the right side is for the keepsake stone (ashes, breastmilk, lock of hair, etc).

• Keepsake stone design elements in these photos: my dog's ashes, fur, pieces of his collar, and opal shimmer.

If you are wanting a piece to wear frequently please choose SOLID GOLD. It is much more durable than sterling silver/plated, which is more suited for occasional wear.

For examples of all inclusion enhancements, please see our lookbook.

For INTERNATIONAL orders, please email me at cait@milkcouture.co. International orders are fulfilled by a different platform (not via my website).

Please read the entire FAQ prior to making a purchase. Check our social media to see examples of stone designs. Our instagram has a stone design story highlight with tons of beautiful combinations of our stone design elements.

Additional milk preservation refers to the number of additional milk samples you'd like us to preserve. Some mamas would like us to preserve milk from breastfeeding multiple children.

You will receive a confirmation email with detailed shipping instructions on how to send your keepsake inclusions/milk (this is also detailed in the FAQ). After making a purchase, you can check on where your order is in the process by going to the order status page.

Every piece of keepsake jewelry is as beautiful and unique just as the story behind it. No piece will be 100% "perfect" as there are always small imperfections such as bubbles, evidence of sanding, etc. That is the nature of handcrafted jewelry. By purchasing a piece with Milk Couture Co., you are acknowledging that it will not be completely flawless.

Our current turnaround time from when we receive your breastmilk/keepsake until you receive your piece in the mail is approximately 4-16 weeks. This timeline is an estimate and subject to change.

Treat your precious keepsake jewelry/items as you would treat your grandmother's heirloom pearls - with great love and care.  Do not shower, bathe, wash hands, do dishes, work out, sunbathe, swim, or sleep while wearing your jewelry. Do not expose your jewelry to chemicals (lotion, perfume, hairspray, laundry/dish soap, etc.), extreme temperatures, humidity, extended UV light, or essential oils as this can discolor the keepsake stones. Do not store your jewelry in direct sunlight or in a humid area like a bathroom.

We recommend storing in a dark, dry area - preferably a small ziplock bag with an anti tarnishing strip. Do not store mixed metals together as that can accelerate tarnishing. For example, do not store silver pieces in the same place as gold plated pieces.

A silver polishing cloth is included with each jewelry order. We caution against using the cloth frequently on plated pieces and vermeil as it can strip the plating.

Please do not resize your keepsake rings. The stones do not hold up to the resizing process. If the ring is too loose, you can get a ring wrap which is a small plastic piece you can cut to size and wrap around the bottom of the ring to fig as snug as you'd like.
