What is Cremation Jewelry?

Cremation Jewelry can help so much to cope with grief

Have You Heard of Cremation Jewelry?

When a loved one, such as; a family member, friend or pet passes away, it can be a devastating loss. You might find yourself struggling with grief and feel desperate to hold onto a piece of the one who has passed on. Also, if you are dealing with the passing of your loved one right now, you'll need to consider how to treat their remains. Some loved ones will have left requests in their wills about how they want their remains to be treated and others may not. Some people wish to be buried others would prefer to be cremated.

Cremation, which has been in practice for thousands of years, is becoming more popular for multiple reasons as of late. A few reasons are that it is less expensive than a standard funeral, has less of an impact on the environment and there is the option to keep their ashes close by in an urn and in cremation jewelry. Some people choose to keep the ashes on a mantelpiece, or they choose to will scatter the remains in a place that they feel was significant to the individual.

Another common practice, if you have a pet who has passed on, is that you might choose to scatter their ashes at their favorite place to run or play. Cremation jewelry provides another option of how to handle the remains of your loved one. As well as scattering them across the land, you can keep some of the ashes close to you.

Cremation Jewelry Explained

Cremation jewelry is best described as an urn that you can wear and keep with you no matter where you go. They are also known as funeral jewelry, remembrance jewelry or memorial jewelry. If you see any of these advertised, they are likely the same type of product under a different name.

For many it can be difficult to fully let go of your loved one. With cremation jewelry, you can always keep them close to you even after they have passed on. This can help fill the void left behind by someone who used to be an incredibly significant part of your life. It can help ensure that in times of need, you feel as though they are with you and it can help with the healing process.

With cremation jewelry, you can choose many different styles of jewelry that matches you or your loved one's personality. This can be anything from an urn bracelet to a urn keychain, urn earrings or urn necklaces, which are the most popular. Once you have ordered your piece of jewelry you will then be able to transfer a small portion of your loved one's remains into the holding chamber of the jewelry and can then seal it to protect the ashes for forever.

There will always be a hollow opening or chamber as part of the cremation jewelry through which you can place the cremated ashes, a piece of hair, or a whisker inside of them. Their remains will then be secured and locked inside the jewelry. Only a small portion of the remains can be kept inside the urn jewelry, so it’s still possible for you to decide what else to do with the remainder of your loved one's remains. 

Traditional cremation jewelry is often confused with jewelry made of the remains of a loved one. This process can be completed by converting the ashes into glass or diamond. However, this is a different type of product and a great deal more expensive. As such, it is not an option available to most people who are interested in keeping part of their loved one close to them. Cremation jewelry provides a stunning alternative that is budget friendly and allows you to keep the remains in their true form. Rather than transforming the ashes into something else, you actually can keep the essence of that individual close to you, providing you comfort when you need it most.

History Of Cremation Jewelry

You might assume that cremation jewelry is a new concept or idea but nothing could be further from the truth. In one form or another, cremation jewelry has been part of the grieving process for hundreds of years. Of course, recently with the increased popularity of cremation the desire for cremation jewelry has certainly gained grown as well in recent years.

Queen Victoria's Locket containing hair from her beloved Prince Albert. Cremation jewelry has been around for centuries and was very popular in the Victorian Era

One of the most famous examples of cremation jewelry was in 1861 after Queen Victoria’s husband, Prince Albert, tragically died of Typhoid. The queen and thus her court remained in mourning for three years. During this time, cremation jewelry, as we know it today, was born. Unlike the jewelry of today, these items did not hold the ashes and were not urns. Instead, they were far more symbolic. They often had images of coffins or crosses on them.

Indeed, in the 16th century, this type of jewelry was known as ‘memento mori.’ Loosely translated this means ‘remember you must die.’ It was a somewhat poignant reminder that eventually we all pass on and a way for an individual to hold their own mortality. It was also used as a way to encourage thoughts for those who had passed from the world. This type of jewelry wasn’t for a specific individual but rather a reminder of all those who had passed on. 

Eventually, cremation jewelry was used not only for hair, but also as a vessel to store the remains of an individual. However, throughout the coming centuries rather than the ashes, it was the hair that was commonly used. Hair was intricately woven together as part of decorative jewelry which dates back to ancient practices. Many still favor holding the hair of their loved one rather than the ashes to this day.

Many individuals have theorized that cremation jewelry became popular during the Victorian age because photography was expensive. With no way to afford photos of loved ones lost, people needed a way to hold onto to the people who had passed on. Perhaps for some, cremation jewelry became the answer. A way to let part of them continue to live. Many people have believe that cremation jewelry does provide a certain element of spiritual power for those seeking strength from individuals they were close to.

Different Types Of Cremation Jewelry


You might think that all cremation jewelry looks the same. However, this is certainly not the case and you can get this type of jewelry in a range of different styles and designs. For instance, you might be interested in the possibility of a urn necklace. These pieces are available in a range of different designs and can be perfect for everyday wear. This style includes a small urn is attached to a chain and looks like a traditional charm or emblem. Some styles we offer even be transparent, allowing you to see and almost feel what is inside.

Or, you can consider opting for a piece of jewelry that fits on a keychain. This is a great option if you are not one for wearing jewelry but you still would like to have a small part of your loved one close by. Every time you look at your keys, you’ll be reminded of the person you lost and the fact that they are still there,  watching over you.

If you are looking for something beautiful yet simple, you can select urn earnings. These provide an easy, delicate option and looks absolutely stunning. With simple or intricate designs, you’re sure to be able to find the ideal earrings for you or perhaps whoever you’re buying the jewelry for.

Alternatively, you can think about selecting urn bracelets. Again, this can be a simple piece that you can use every day and will look beautiful on your wrist. These can be selected in a range of different sizes and may also provide a beautiful message tied to the person who you love, cherish and adore. One of the great things about this piece is that you will be able to look down through the day and be reminded of the strength you gained from that person.

A ring cremation urn is another option. Here the small portion of ashes is stored inside a beautiful, minimal piece of jewelry. These are available regardless of how much you have to spend and can be chosen to fit your finger perfectly.


Common Misconceptions Of Cremation Jewelry

There are many misconceptions of cremation jewelry that you might hold if you are not familiar with this concept. First, do remember that cremation jewelry is not created from the ashes of your loved one. While this is possible, that’s a far more expensive and a completely different product.

Second, you might think that cremation jewelry is only suitable for loved ones who have been cremated. But this is not the case and as explained, cremation jewelry is known by a variety of names including funeral jewelry. If you buried your loved one or pet, you can take a small portion of the sacred ground and keep this inside the jewelry instead. This will also be suitable if the cremated remains were buried inside an urn.

You might also be confused about what the form the cremated remains are in. People are often uncomfortable about the idea of handling the remains and moving them from an urn into the piece of jewelry. Many funeral homes and veterinarian offices are happy to place the ashes into your urn jewelry at your request.

It is important to note that once cremated, the remains of an individual or pet become nothing more than dust and bone fragments. These are further broken down to the form of a fine, pure, consistent white powder. Any alternate understanding of what ashes look like will typically have been derived from how they appear in the media.

You might be wondering whether it’s possible to store anything else in the jewelry urn. This is an option and there are numerous possibilities to consider here. For instance, some individuals will keep a lock of hair, a tiny piece of cloth that their loved one was buried in or even dried flowers from the funeral itself.

You might also think that moving a small amount of the remains from the urn to the jewelry is going to be both complex and difficult. However, we can assure you that this is not the case. Instead, you will be provided clear instructions on how to transfer and store the remains inside the jewelry. The process can take just a minute or two and can be completed as we provide all the items that are necessary in placing the ashes when you order the jewelry from Cherished Emblems.

As was mentioned above, if you are not confident about transferring the jewelry yourself, then you should contact your local funeral home. They will be able to complete this process for you with no trouble at all. However, we are still confident then anyone will be able to handle the transfer themselves with the instructions that we provide. If you have any questions you are welcome to contact us and we can help give you any assistance you might need.

Another common misconception to some is that choosing cremation jewelry will stop you from respecting the wishes of the individual who has passed on. This is not the case at all. Instead, cremation jewelry can be a further way to remember and cherish your loved one. You can still scatter most of their remains while keeping a small portion. Or, you can still keep the majority of the ashes in an urn where they requested. You can also still bury your loved one. Regardless of what their wishes were, cremated jewelry will not stop you from fulfilling their wishes at all. Cremation jewelry is something specifically for you or someone else that loved the individual or pet who has passed on.
