Losing a loved one is one of the most difficult things everyone has to go through at some point in their lives. After a friend or family member passes away, many of us look for ways to pay tribute to their memory and keep them close to us, one way to do this is with cremation jewellery.
What is cremation jewellery?
Those who choose to have their loved ones cremated will often go on to keep the ashes in an urn or scatter them in a place of significance. These aren’t the only options however.
Did you know that you could also take a small amount of a loved one’s ashes and have them placed into a piece of jewellery, like a locket for example. Cremation jewellery is normally worn but can also be kept in a jewellery box or displayed at home.
Cremation jewellery comes in a variety of colours and styles. Pieces can be customised and are actually more affordable that you may think.
Lockets for ashes and other jewellery can provide great comfort to people who are grieving. Here are some reasons why we think cremation jewellery is a lovely choice for cherishing a loved one’s memory.
A thoughtful gift for a grieving friend
Cremation jewellery makes for a really thoughtful and elegant gift for a grieving friend or family member. Just be sure to ask their permission before making the arrangements.
Like any piece of jewellery, cremation jewellery can be passed down from generation to generation and become a treasured family heirloom.
While flowers and candles can be a great comfort for people who are grieving they don’t last forever. Memorial jewellery requires little to no maintenance and will last a lifetime (at least) as long as the pieces are taken care of.
A beautiful tribute
Cremation jewellery is a beautiful and elegant way to treasure a loved one’s memory. Everyone has different tastes when it comes to jewellery of course, Funeral Extras’ memorial lockets and lockets for ashes come in a variety of styles for every taste and budget.
Jewellery is for everyone
One of the great things about jewellery is that anyone can wear it, regardless of age, gender or body shape. Lockets for ashes can be worn every day with casual wear or perhaps saved for a special occasion such as a birthday or anniversary.
Keep your loved one close to you
After a loved one dies, many people choose to have them cremated and either scatter the ashes or keep them on display at home. Many people choose to move homes after the death of a loved one, and transporting some urns can be difficult. With memorial jewellery you can your loved one close to your heart and take them with you wherever you go, whether that’s across town, or to a different country.
Sharing is caring
As cremation jewellery is only intended to hold a small amount of ashes it’s a great option for big families and friendship groups who all want to keep their loved one close by. Ashes can easily be shared out and placed into multiple pieces of memorial jewellery for multiple people. Lockets would make a wonderful gift for siblings or children of the deceased for example.
