When you lose a loved one, dealing with the grief is only one aspect. The situation is incredibly difficult because death has a certainty to it and you know that you will never set eyes on the person again or be close to them. However, there is another way in which you can keep them close to your heart- in the form of jewelry. At Tindall Funeral Home we have seen this particular trend grow and many people are now choosing to get cremation jewelry made after they lose a loved one.

What is Cremation Jewelry?

Cremation jewelry is a different type of jewelry made from the remains (ashes) of the departed soul. It may also be referred to as funeral jewelry, remembrance jewelry, or memorial jewelry. You can get the ashes incorporated into accessories. Certain jewelry items can also be filled with your loved ones' ashes. Some common jewelry pieces include:

  • Lockets
  • Necklaces
  • Bracelets
  • Rings
  • Amulets
  • Other

Some people buy cremation jewelry because it helps them maintain a closer connection with their loved ones. It’s true that there are certain moral issues in play here, which hampers the acceptance of cremation jewelry completely. However, the tide is slowly turning and a larger number of people are now buying this jewelry.

Some people feel that it is a little disconcerting or scary to wear jewelry containing someone’s ashes. However, those who get these items made are firm about the fact that they feel a closer connection with their loved one. You can choose from discreet cremation jewelry in which the ashes are incorporated into the entire piece and not filled in a cavity like in a pendant or ring.
