Large Teardrop Necklace Setting made of solid 935 silver. Includes a 6mm jump ring already attached so all you need to do is add a necklace chain and your resin teardrop. Does not include ashes etc or chain as shown in the pictures.
Perfect for use with our 25x18mm teardrop moulds. You can even purchase stock images here (teardrop coming soon) 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 Teardrop Necklace
You can purchase the pendant setting by itself, it’s perfect for use with our 25x18mm teardrop moulds. Please let us 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 teardrops 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.

This 25x18mm scalloped edge teardrop necklace setting has been designed by hand by our owner, Nikki, and is perfect for breastmilk and keepsake jewellery.

25x18mm Teardrop Necklace Setting
Size: 27x20mm (fit stone 25x18mm), jump ring is 6mm, 1mm thick. They can all be engraved (click here) or handstamped.
Please note – new open-backed setting style, now available to pre-order!
Caution! These settings are now cast in small batches in Scotland and are finished by hand then pin polished. 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. These pieces are finished to a satin sheen and not a mirror polished finish, as it is more sustainable.
The new open-backed setting makes removing the resin cabochon easier for cleaning or if you make a mistake in setting and makes the pieces more affordable. Please see photos (more coming soon!)
I find that the teardrop range sells for at least £80/piece and you can charge £160 for a teardrop 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 (coming soon) to encourage sales.
You can choose to include a single compatible heart mould or add our 25x18mm teardrop mould here. Please note the sizing info in the description!
Breastmilk Teardrop 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.
