Cremation Jewelry: Why some people turn their deceased loved ones into Jewelry

"What we have once enjoyed we can never lose; all that we deeply love becomes a part of us." - Helen Keller

 

When we experience a loss, whether it’s unexpected or not, the hardest part is often accepting that someone we love dearly is no longer around us. That realization is difficult, heartbreaking, and wearying.

 

For some, it helps to remember that when we lose someone we love, we may lose them in body but in spirit and in memory they remain with us for eternity. It takes strength and it takes grace, but it can help bring peace to know that in our hearts is where our loved ones remain with us eternally.

 

Even through seemingly unbearable and unending pain, the thought of our loved ones remaining close and becoming part of us helps get us through those tough, early weeks or months of loss. Along with the memory of a loved one, the symbolic representation of cremation jewelry is another powerful way to remember those who are no longer with us.

 

Cremation jewelry is often chosen in addition to a traditional cremation urn, rather than in place of one, as it only holds one small bit of ashes. Some people are electing to have their loved ones eternally memorialized in cremation jewelry for a wealth of reasons.

 

One of these reasons is the ability to keep the ashes physically close at all times. Stunning cremation pendants in various designs and materials not only help keep someone close at heart, but they also serve as a beautiful and symbolic remembrance, as the pendants come in a variety of choices. They can be personalized to reflect those we loved and lost.

Cremation pendants are also a meaningful way to allow multiple family members to share in the ashes of their passed family member. Since cremation jewelry only holds a small amount of ashes, the ashes can be shared more easily if a family wants to each have something to remember someone by. Matching pendants or unique pendants provide the option to personalize the jewelry and the memory.

 

Cremations are increasing in popularity, as the cost of plots and tombstones become higher and more difficult to obtain. There is more flexibility with cremations, and they allow for a body to be buried, to be displayed in an urn in the home, or to be scattered in a memorable place or location. But for some, it can still be hard to say goodbye forever if the family is burying the ashes or scattering them into the world. This is another reason why some chose to use cremation jewelry for the ashes, allowing them to keep a small portion while scattering or releasing the rest.

There are so many options for cremation jewelry, as well, that there is the easy ability to personalize the jewelry or pendants to one’s tastes or style. Urn jewelry might not be the ideal choice for everyone, but for some, it functions as a meaningful way to to remain close to someone, and to remember them and what they meant.

The death of a loved one is arguably the hardest thing in life to accept. It usually comes at an unexpected time. Even if you know that the time is coming, it is almost impossible to prepare for it.

Sometimes a familiar scent will find its way to us unexpectedly from a passerby. All of these are signs that even though our loved one may be gone physically, they are still very much with us spiritually.
