When we lose someone we love, we work hard to keep their memories alive. We tell stories, display pictures and revisit the activities and locations we shared.
With cremation jewelry, we can also keep our loved ones close.
Have you heard of cremation jewelry? It might sound like a wild concept, but people have used jewelry as a way to remember previous generations since the 1400s! First gifted in memory of the lost and later paired with a locket of hair, memorial jewelry helps to keep a family member in your thoughts as you go about your daily life.
And now you can bring a piece of the person who matters most with you wherever you go.
Choose a necklace or ring with a small, hidden compartment to store ashes. Discreet enough that the average passerby won’t notice anything beyond the beautiful design, you can decide whether or not to share the true purpose of your jewelry.
Many wearers find comfort in the ease and accessibility of wearing a loved one’s ashes as they move about–a reminder to take a deep breath, assurance that you’re going to be okay, encouragement to cherish those still with you.
Cremation jewelry offers you flexibility to respect a loved one’s wishes while also honoring your own needs. While this won’t supersede your loved one’s final placement, it will allow you to secure a small portion of that person to take along with you in your daily routine.
Simply reserve a minimal amount of ashes for your necklace or ring. We’re happy to do this for you if you’d like. Then you can decide what to do with the rest of the remains. You might choose a glass niche, the traditional burial route, or to display them in our mausoleum.
Beyond a feeling of regular closeness, cremation jewelry also provides a family heirloom that can be passed down from one generation to the next–happily worn or easily stored. Let us know how we can help you create an heirloom to honor your loved one.
We know the importance of considering cost when making decisions about cremation. If you have questions that would help you better understand these costs–either the price or the value–our advisors are more than happy to assist you. Give us a call at 310-361-3252.
