Solid silver 18mm heart necklace setting and option to create a kit. Includes a jump ring already attached so all you need to do is add a necklace chain and your resin heart. Does not include ashes etc or chain as shown in the pictures, but you can buy necklace chains from us here. Please note, this is the new style scalloped edge necklace setting (not the previous open-backed crown point setting), see below for further details!
You can even purchase stock images here that you can mark with your own watermark to get orders before you’ve made one yourself, just be sure to let customers know they’re mock-ups (examples).
Making A Heart Necklace
You can purchase the pendant setting by itself, it’s perfect for use with our 18mm heart moulds. Please let me know in the comments when you order if you’d like a patina (antique effect) applied, this is no extra charge. The rest of the kit contents are listed below if you’d like to buy it all separately and this can be more cost-effective if you’re making pieces professionally or making several for family members. We include a single mould with the kits but it’s easier to make two hearts at once to offer your client a choice, so you may wish to purchase the double mould. You may want to order the complete set of resin sparkle mix blends, and other supplies, a pack of cocktail sticks, and larger bottles of resin for example.
New Heart Necklace Setting
This scalloped edge heart necklace setting has been designed by hand by our owner, Nikki, and is perfect for breastmilk and keepsake jewellery.

- designed by hand by owner Nikki with resin jewellery in mind
- anti-tarnish 935 solid silver setting, higher purity than sterling!
- solid back suitable for engraving (coming soon)

18mm Heart Necklace Setting
Size: 19x21mm (fit stone approximately 18x16mm), jump ring is 6mm, 1mm thick. They can all be engraved (click here) or handstamped.
Caution! These hand-finished scalloped edge jewellery settings are definitely handmade in nature. You may notice flaws and imperfections, scratches and please don’t expect a perfect finish. If you are looking for large-scale mass produced perfection we would recommend buying from these folks on Etsy instead.
I find that the heart range sells for at least £80/piece and you can charge £160 for a heart shaped breastmilk necklace with this setting engraved (click here) and a necklace chain, so it is worth the investment if you are good at upselling those extras to your clients. Use our stock images to encourage sales.
You can choose to include a single compatible heart mould or add a double 18mm heart cabochon mould here. Please note the sizing info in the description!
Heart Necklace Chain
Although this kit doesn’t include a chain, we sell some necklace chains here (click) and you can purchase the length you need according to your client’s preferences. You might want to buy in some inexpensive 20″/50cm lightweight chains to include free of charge with necklaces as clients will usually expect a chain. We found on Tree of Opals that even if we advertised a piece as not including a chain, we used to still receive complaints that one was not included. I doubt many people will read this and we will get complaints about the lack of chain but I want to give you the option to purchase them locally inexpensively or upsell your clients to a premium chain. You can usually get chains from local suppliers such as Cookson Gold (UK), Rashbel (Israel) and Rio Grande (USA) or buy a silver necklace chain here on Etsy. We find you can make a little extra income from upselling chain upgrades and other accessories and ensure that your client has a strong, sturdy chain according to their needs.
Breastmilk necklaces we would definitely always advise are upsold to stronger chains as many people ordering breastmilk jewellery will have babies and toddlers who will try to grab them! Just make sure that your client knows the necklaces are not child-safe, should be worn with care and common sense and not used as fiddle beads/teething jewellery! I tried to always make the difference between breastmilk jewellery and breastfeeding jewellery clear!
Our scalloped settings are all hand finished/polished. Although we try our best to remove scratches we can’t always achieve a perfect finish in-house.We could send ours to be polished by polishing experts, but that would increase the cost significantly and we find our customers usually prefer handmade and affordable to factory perfection. You’re welcome to refinish any pieces you feel could be polished better. If you require a finish with no imperfections we will be happy to recommend other retailers who have the equipment to achieve that.
