Baby Loss Charm Necklace
Honoring Pregnancy and Infant Loss
Over one million women per year in the US alone experience miscarriages, and that doesn't count the women who experience stillbirths or the loss of a grown child. It's a heavy grief that often isn't acknowledged or discussed - and it's a grief I know well as I had two miscarriages before the eventual birth of my son. I made this necklace in an effort to bring comfort to those women experiencing baby loss, to be worn as a badge of courage, strength and remembrance.
This charm pendant features an intaglio style engraving of a blooming rose with rose buds attached at the stem. Here is the symbolism and meaning behind this piece:
Blooming Rose – symbolizes the mother’s strength, resilience, and beauty. Roses are stunning and at times fragile, yet have thorns to protect themselves.
Rose Bud – Historically, particularly in the Victorian mourning era, the presence of a rose bud in jewelry represented a young child lost.
One Stem – The flower and bud are connected in one stem, symbolizing an eternal connection.
The Shape - Hundreds of years ago, the shape for a heart was in the form of a teardrop, like this pendant.
