Cremation urns aren’t the only way to honor and remember a deceased loved one. Cremation rings and bracelets are also another unique way to preserve a small trace of ashes, a lock of hair, or some other small memento to remember your loved one by.
A tradition dating back to the 1300s, mourning jewelry has been used to honor the dead for centuries. While wealthy people such as kings and queens were typically the only ones able to afford a tribute like this, today many modern families find cremation rings and bracelets to be a great way to preserve the ashes of their loved one.
A mourning ring was worn on the fingers of both Victorian women and men, to honor the memory of a deceased family member. Traditionally, it bore the person’s name and date of death and some styles included an image of the deceased. Rings became popular again in the 1930s and 1940s in the United States, and were made of Bakelite and usually featured a picture of the person being mourned.
