After the memorial service, it can be reassuring to have a personal token of remembrance that you can look at, hold or carry with you as you go through the stages of grief. A wearable remembrance can bring comfort and peace wherever you go. Whether it’s a cross charm holding your loved one’s cremation ashes or a small medallion with a special engraving like a name/date or a special fingerprint pendant, a piece of customized urn jewelry is a beautiful way to remember a loved one.
Cremation jewelry expresses personal style and keeps the memory of your loved one close. Your Dignity Memorial® professional can show you cremation jewelry and keepsake options that fit both your budget and your taste.
For families who choose cremation, there are many funeral keepsake options. From small keepsake urns and containers to special jewelry pieces, like an urn necklace or bracelet, that hold a portion of your loved one’s ashes. Both can be personalized to reflect your loved one’s personality, hobbies or pastimes.
Like small keepsake urns, cremation jewelry is perfect for an individual or a group to remember a special relationship. It allows for multiple people to retain a small amount of ashes in a charm. A timeless piece of jewelry can be worn and loved for generations to come.
Charm options that can hold ashes
Charms come in many shapes and sizes. Families can choose from shapes like a heart, cross, black and silver capsule, key, or dog tag. Life Stories® medallions can also hold your loved one’s ashes. These small remembrances can reflect faith, service to country, a relationship, a special phrase or quote, or they can feature a gem in black, blue, crystal, purple or red.
Cremation jewelry materials
Both cross and heart cremation jewelry are available in 14K gold as well as sterling silver options. The black and silver capsule and dog tag come in stainless steel, while the key is available in sterling silver. All of the Life Stories medallions are sterling silver.
Once you choose your desired remembrance piece, you may also want to add special beads or charms that represent your loved one or the relationship you had with them. For example, you can combine a sterling silver cross charm holding ashes with a medallion that represents the armed forces, and special beads that represent the love you shared. Or, if your wife loved traveling, you may choose to gift a bracelet to your children with an airplane charm and a heart holding your wife’s ashes.
Whether it’s a necklace or a charm bracelet, you can carry the love and memories with you to keep the memory of your loved one close by.
