I have carefully selected each and every piece of this bracelet, for their healing properties and their inherent symbolism.
~Kimberly de Montbrun
Rose Quartz is the stone of love and emotional healing. It's soothing energies gently help the wearer to heal from their loss, to ease their anger, hurt, pain and fears. It promotes forgiveness, and loving, bringing back an emotional balance. It is a kind and gentle stone, nurturing us through our times of need.
Blue lace agate is a protective stone, guarding us during our grief from negativity. It's gift is the endowment of a "bold heart". It helps us to develop and realise our inner peace. It is a stone of hope, cleansing, and harmony. Blue lace agate helps us to reach high spiritual places, connecting us to the more subtle energies found in the spiritual realm. It is also a kind and gentle stone, protecting us during our time of vulnerability and grief.
These stones were also chosen for their colours, baby blue and baby pink. Many of us do not know the sex of the babies we have lost, and I wanted something that would symbolise all of our losses. Baby pink and blue are also the colours of the pregnancy and Infant Loss awareness ribbon.
Each bracelet can be customised with a swarovski crystal bead in the colour of your choice (please see our birthstone colour chart), which is nestled between sterling Bali caps. Some mothers prefer the stone of the intended due date, while others prefer the colour of the month of the baby's loss. Neither choice is wrong.
Each order will be shipped with an organza jewelry gift bag, and a card handstamped with tiny baby footprints, that reads:
Tiny Footprints on a Mother's Heart
When a baby arrives,
be it for a day, a month, a year or more,
or perhaps only a sweet flickering moment-
the fragile spark of a tender soul
the secret swell of a new pregnancy
the goldfish flutter known to only you-
you are unmistakeningly changed...
the tiny footprints left behind on your heart
bespeak your name as Mother.
