I don’t tend to get a lot of jewellery as gifts, and it’s something I am very unlikely to buy myself, unless it’s for a very special reason. Most of the jewellery I own is over a decade old! Since the birth of my children however, I have been incredibly fascinated by the human placenta, in all it’s life sustaining beauty. I remember seeing a series of pictures once, possibly by a doula, of trees made by imprinting a newborn’s placenta on paper, and I’ve always loved that association of the life-force of birth with the Tree of Life. We certainly have an association of trees with life, with sustainability and with our continuance as a species. Even down to the ‘family tree’.
When Kaya Jewellery got in touch to ask if I’d like one of their beautiful pendants to review, I was absolutely taken by their Tree of Life pendant. I’ve always wanted a Tree of Life to celebrate my beautiful girls, but as I said – I was unlikely to buy one for myself! You know what it’s like? Everything else takes priority!
Each Tree of Life pendant is a 0.4mm thick .925 Sterling Silver disk with a tree design engraved on it. You can have a name engraved under the tree, and a corresponding birth stone placed in the tree. If you have two children, you can put two names, and two birth stones, and up to 5 stones with five names. Prices depend on how many stones you choose – two stones is £41.95 delivered. Prices range from £37.95 to £54.95.
It’s a simple but beautiful and everyone who has seen it has loved it. I wish I had three more children, so I can have 5 stones in my pendant!
For me there’s so much sentimental value, not only in the Tree of Life design, there’s beauty in the birth stones and the engraved names. I simply love it. I wear it with my “Joy” stone every day.
Each pendant also comes safely tucked into a gift box, ready for gifting.
Of course Kaya Jewellery do more than the Tree of Life design, but a whole range of jewellery targeted at mothers, babies and children. You can view their whole range here, but my favourites are:
