Some people choose to disperse of the ashes in different ways. While many families choose to store all of the ashes in a single adult size urn, other options include dividing the ashes among several small pieces of cremation jewelry. These miniature keepsakes are worn as delicate pendants, bracelets, or rings with both masculine and feminine designs that will safely store a bit of cremated ash, lock of hair, or other tiny memorial items. This is a great way to keep the memory of a loved one close to the heart, versus traveling to a cemetery to pay respects.
High fashion styles and simple classics are created by professional jewelers and are a discreet way to keep your loved one near. No one would ever know that your pendant holds a tiny bit of ash.
Some of the designs available are:
Cremation jewelry is a very personal way to create a small memorial. Jewelry for ashes is not a new idea, it's actually inspired by Victorian mourning jewelry. Back in the day, this style was very popular and pendants, rings, and brooches were often fashioned from a loved one's lock of braided hair. Today Memento Mori is very collectible and Urn Garden is pleased to offer families a selection of modern designs inspired by an old tradition. Families love the discreet style of having a loved one close and often buy several pieces for keepsakes to be given away at the funeral or memorial service.
Here's a few of the most commonly asked questions regarding jewelry for ashes:
What is the Guarantee on Cremation Jewelry?
We guarantee all of our pendants and chains 100 percent. If you are not happy with the jewelry you received you may return or exchange. Please review our return policy for complete details.
Are Chains Included With The Pendants?
Some of the ash pendants have chains, some have a silk cord, but include the option to add a chain. The product description will indicate if the chain is included. Often our customers have their own chains that they plan to use as they prefer a certain length or style.
Is Cremation Jewelry Easy to Fill?
Most of our pendant, rings, lockets, and viles come with instructions for filling and sealing, plus tools. Some of the pendants have a threaded bail, but most have a bolt on the back or side that is screwed down for a secure closure. Talk to your funeral director about transfering the ashes if you need assistance.
I Plan to Wear My Ring or Necklace Every Day, Is That a Good Idea?
Our jewelry is well made and are quality pieces, however, there are certain instances where use should be limited, such as swimming, showering, sleeping, and exercising. Even though the closures are water and air tight, water, chlorine, body oils, and other chemicals could have an adverse effect on the finish.
FYI: Several of our jewelry styles require a signature upon delivery, please choose your delivery address with this in mind.
