Man Gives Girlfriend ‘Special’ Engagement Ring Made Out Of Her Breast Milk

A woman has proudly posted on Facebook the 'special' engagement ring her partner gave to her - and revealed the 'jewel' in the centre was actually made out of her own breast milk.

She wrote: "My boyfriend got me this cute ring for Christmas and I finally got it today. It's made from my breastmilk and so so special."

It's not 100 per cent clear whether this is an engagement ring, however she is wearing it on that finger.

The photos made their way onto a ring shaming Facebook group and people have not held back.

One person wrote: "It's.....it's just milk...I don't get the hype.

"Might as well make a ring out of mashed potatoes since we're honouring sustenance?

"Cheers on the baby tho."

Another added: "I have a taxidermist on stand-by to clean my pet's skulls so I can keep them on the mantle after they pass away and even I think this ring is weird."

A third said: "What's sentimental about it? It's your bodily fluid.

"I get jewellery made from kids and family members but jewellery made from your own fluid?

"Like, lemme get my own baby tooth and wear it on my hand...or my nail clippings and put them in something around my neck."

The concept of breast milk jewellery has only been around for a few years, at least commercially.

A NBC New York article back in 2013 spoke about Etsy sellers offering the peculiar rings, pendants, lockets and beads and it's exploded since then.

TIME Magazine added: "No matter the process used for preservation there seems to be a long and tedious process involved in creating the keepsakes, leading to long waits for order fulfilment."

People who want this type of jewellery have to send their breast milk to the creator, where a variety of methods are used to solidify it and turn it into something special.

Solvents or chemicals are believed to be added to the milk to help ensure the 'gem' is preserved.

It's believed creators could also use dehydrating, freeze drying, cooking down, or mixing breast milk with other media.

Then it's believed to be coating or mixed with resin to seal it off.
