Cremation Keepsake Necklaces
Jewelry for Ashes
Fine Jewelry With A Special Purpose
Cremation keepsakes, simply put, are precious pieces of fine jewelry that are designed to create a unique tribute of a loved one. They typically are designed with tiny hallow crevices in which to store tiny portions of a family member’s cremation ashes, and some cremation keepsakes can also house a precious tiny portrait of the deceased.
Cremation keepsakes have become an important part of the memorial industry as cremation itself has become more and more popular in recent years. Cremation keepsakes come in a myriad of styles, colors and even materials there truly is something for every personality and many families have turn to them to memorialize a loved one. Families across America and the world have found that cremation keepsakes are a wonderful way to help erase the feeling of finality that a cremation can sometimes create. Psychologists and other experts say that an important part of the grieving process is establishing a special place in which a loved-one can always be remembered. While this is traditionally a grave in a cemetery, families of a person who has been cremated may not always have such a memorial. Cremation keepsakes, in such cases, can become the most special of memorials.
Families often use cremation keepsakes as compliments to traditional urns, too. While most of a family member’s ashes are stored permanently in a large, traditional urn, tiny portions can be transferred to one or more cremation keepsake and then, accordingly, shared among an entire family – even if the family members live thousands of miles apart.
Cremation keepsakes can come in almost as many different varieties and styles as there are people in the world. From cylindrical shapes, in an amazing variety of designs, to traditional pendant shapes, such as crosses and hearts, cremation keepsakes can bring comfort to survivors in a difficult time with unfamiliar emotions in the form of a familiar symbol. Not only do cremation keepsakes come in a large selection of traditional shapes and symbols, they also come in an array of non-traditional and unique forms. Cremation keepsakes are made from a huge variety of materials: many are made from precious metals similar to traditional jewelry, but others are made from glass, stone, or even wood. For example, some of our most popular urn necklaces for ashes are made of intricately styled pewter tops that are paired with clear or colorful glass viles, which actually hold the remembrance. Cremation keepsakes come in such a variety of styles, shapes and materials because the survivor and the loved one it represents are also idiosyncratic. Cremation keepsakes are beautiful reminders of the person for whom they memorialize, but they also can fit the personality of those the deceased have left behind.
Most cremation keepsakes are designed to be worn by family members who want to keep their loved-one's memory close at hand each day. But cremation keepsakes do not necessarily have to be worn. Several nice home display options are available. Cremation keepsakes can be hung beautifully in special dome display cases made of glass, and nearly all cremation keepsakes come with a beautiful storage box in which they can be stored and displayed when not being worn.
