This nursing necklace is made with a 30mm pale honey jade stone - just over an inch in diameter. It reminds me of honeycomb fresh from the hive! Honey jade comes in varying shades of yellow to almost white to clear. It is thought to be a sacred stone, to radiate unconditional love and balance the emotions. Photos show both sides of the stone - this is the exact necklace you'll receive.
Nursing necklaces are worn by mamas while breastfeeding to capture baby’s attention and to distract baby from pinching, tugging, or twiddling on mama. The donut-shaped stones are smooth and lend themselves to being fiddled with as well as being stylish and fun on their own. Necklaces are also wonderful for anyone who will be feeding baby while mama is away, and can also make for easier diaper changes, and are perfect for babywearing.
It's dressed up with an antique-gold pewter bead made in the US by Tierracast - a company which prides itself for producing beautifully detailed beads made from food-grade, 100% leadfree pewter.
The tightly-woven cotton cord is tied carefully with knots including over top of the bead for safety, making the necklace strong and adjustable for when you're nursing and want it to hang lower for baby. Then when you're done, you can just adjust the knots for a shorter look.
Each necklace comes in its own unbleached, cotton gift bag with the International Breastfeeding Symbol hand-stamped on it. These are the thicker muslin bags, with nice strong lace ties and make a great place to store your necklace when you're not wearing it. You can just toss it in with your diaper bag and you're good to go.
Nursing necklaces make wonderful presents for new mothers and are perfect baby shower or mother blessing presents. Each one comes with a little card with the name of the necklace, type of stone and gemstone properties.

* Nursing necklaces should never be worn or used alone by babies or young children, as it can be a choking or strangulation hazard. Do not allow baby to chew or suck on the stone as this is not a teething toy. Although these and other nursing necklaces are very tough, they are still jewelry, and designed to be used by adults. Gemstone information is included for information purposes only and is not intended to treat or diagnose any disease or condition or milk supply issues.
