Jewelry for Ashes
Jewelry for ashes is a special way to share and cherish memories of a loved one. OneWorld Memorials has carefully selected each piece of jewelry with this foremost in mind, offering pieces that are personal and meaningful memorials, honoring a loved one’s unique individuality.
Jewelry can hold special significance for many; pieces that can open a window to a family’s history, or memories as a partner and as a friend. The brooch that mom and grandma wore for their weddings, the engagement ring that has been in the family for generations, the fob watch from the Thirties that grandpa had specially made, or that collar of bells that became music when a beloved furry friend bounded in. These pieces can become testaments to closely held bonds, and a gentle window into our own memories.
Just as we carefully select the finest quality urns and keepsakes, our urn jewelry features an exceptional variety of necklaces, bracelets, and chains. Personalization is available on most pendants by adding customized text or engraving.
What Is Urn Jewelry?
Urn jewelry or jewelry for ashes has existed for centuries, but historians believe that the Victorian era sparked a surge in popularity. After the death of her beloved husband, Prince Albert, Queen Victoria wore black clothing and black jewelry for the rest of her life. This sparked a tradition that eventually evolved into today’s cremation jewelry. Cremation jewelry, in which you can keep a small portion of a loved one’s ashes, comes in a wide variety of styles to suit any taste, including pendants, bracelets, key chains and charms. The jewelry you choose can reflect a hobby, passion, and unique personal sentiment of a departed loved one.
When grieving, making final arrangements takes thought and care and is often decided together among members of a family. Unless memorial plans or special requests were made, ashes are traditionally buried, scattered, or stored in a large urn. However, many also wish to keep loved ones close. Necklaces for ashes are ideal for sharing cherished reminders among family or friends. In our selection of jewelry for ashes, you will find beautiful charms, pendants, and bracelets for anyone who might want to keep a small portion.
Caring for Cremation Jewelry
Memorial pendants come in a variety of alternative and precious metals and are very easy to care for. They can be cleaned using the same methods you would use to clean any jewelry of the same precious metals, but are not usually manufactured to be submerged in water. The product description will let you know.
