Ease your Heart with a Unique Cremation Bead Jewelry Bracelet from GetUrns
Memorial jewelry was popularized by the Victorians in the 19th century, the beginning of a very romantic tradition. With today’s more advanced processes, we can permanently place a small amount of ashes (or sand or soil from the cremains’ scattering site), into a sterling silver, rhodium or gold vermeil bead, a keepsake urn for always.
The Symbolism of Beads
Beads are some of the earliest symbols used by humankind. Though small in size, beads represent big concepts across the globe. In parts of Africa, they offer healing and protection, in Ghana they are associated with rites of passage. Buddhist monks use beads to reflect on life’s impermanence, while Christian rosary beads are used to embody and sanctify holy words and ideas. Even Mardi Gras beads in purple, gold and green represent justice, power and faith!
Today, with family and friends often scattered across states, regions and countries, cremation jewelry bead provides a way for you and your family to keep your loved one with you as you move through life. When friends and family members wear cremation bracelet beads, the circle of sharing and remembering expands.

A Way to Remember and to Find Peace…
Since you wear a memorial bracelet on your wrist you will have many opportunities to admire it, and of course to reflect on your loved one. A cremation bead bracelet is also a reminder to live fully in the moment because all of us will one day face this transition we call death. When we remember our loved ones and how they bravely reached the end of their life’s journey, we gather the courage to make our own journey home someday.
