Retail Therapy: Diamond Edition

You know what makes me feel better? Buying stuff! Here are five unique items you can buy to commemorate your baby and lift your spirits.

1. Stones in nest. I've purchased these for a friend who has one living child and has had two miscarriages. You can order names engraved on the stones or images or a combination. The shop owners are super nice.
2. Comet necklace. A comet represents a bright spot gone too quickly. Comets also have that "other-wordly" quality that's totally appropriate.
3. Mother and child necklace. I love the intersecting circles on this piece.
4. Moon necklace. Another beautiful, symbolic necklace. The moon is always with us, far away but present at the same time.
5. Right hand ring. You are brave and have been through hell. You deserve a giant diamond on your right hand, whether you have one on your left or not.

Show me your commemorative stuff!

  1. I actually have a necklace that has a two piece charm (silver circle with heart cut out and "strength" written around the edge, 2nd part of the charm is just a smaller gold heart)on it that was for my second M/C and now I have a ring with a big and small heart (examples- http://www.amazon.com/Size-12-White-Diamond-Clarity/dp/B002PRGSL6 , http://www.overstock.com/Jewelry-Watches/10k-White-Gold-Diamond-Accent-Heart-Ring-H-I-I2-I3/4370914/product.html?cid=123620)for my last M/C...
    Those two pieces help me when things start wearing me low...

  2. Great post. I have the following:

    It's made by someone who has also had a miscarriage. I have the date the baby was born stamped on the back. It gives me comfort to wear it.

  4. Thanks for the great ideas... I have been looking for something to remember our baby we miscarred in late November and was thinking of this bead (blue and pink for boy/girl baby)for my Pandora bracelet.

  5. I have a charm for the Pandora bracelet my sister gave me. I made the charm, and it has one rose for each of my pregnancies. For my living daughters, the roses are mostly open. For my son that died, the rose is partly open. And for the ones I miscarried, the roses are tightly-closed buds.
