This Gorgeous Boob Ring Is 100% the Classiest Way to Celebrate Breastfeeding Mamas
These days, new moms get "push presents" — often in the form of pricey jewelry — from their partners as a token of appreciation for giving birth. But what do we get for the months upon months spent breastfeeding our babies? Sure, there's no greater reward than the bond between mother and child — and the miraculous ability to feed a baby from our own bodies is certainly a priceless gift on its own. But that doesn't mean we don't deserve a little sparkle for our hard work and cracked, leaky nipples.
Chicago-based jewelry designer Dallas Maynard has delivered the ultimate bling for those wanting to celebrate their breastfeeding journey . . . or just breasts in general.
Her "boob ring" ($280) is handcrafted in sold gold, featuring two subtle curves as well as two perfectly placed genuine 1.5-millimeter rubies. For those wanting a custom look to coordinate with their birthstones, she can also create the ring with a host of other gems including sapphires, garnets, pearls, emeralds, opals, aquamarines, or even diamonds.
"The design came about on a magical whim in my studio one day, and now it's grown to have so much sentiment," she told POPSUGAR. "I wear mine daily and its dainty charm makes me feel empowered, especially when I look down at those two sparkly nips!"
The clever accessory is made to order, and although it will take nearly a month before it ships, there's no better time to order than in the last few days of World Breastfeeding Awareness Month. Our babies can't yet click to purchase this for us, but we're pretty certain they'd want us to have a little solid gold for all that liquid gold we've been giving them.
