Copper Buddy Heart Dog Ashes Pendant Review

The Copper Buddy Heart keepsake is a heart pendant that holds cremated ashes in the interior in remembrance of a pet. The heart measures 3/4” wide by 1” in height and is copper plated over stainless steel. The front of the heart has a small paw print that is stamped into the surface of the pendant.

The Good

The copper finish is unique and gives the pendant an antique feel. The brushed finish isn’t harsh or brassy and the pendant has a very soft appeal.

The pendant has a decent weight, heavy without weighing you down. The size of the pendant makes it slightly larger than a typical pendant but still comfortable enough to wear on a daily basis.

Adding the remembrance was quick and easy. The Copper Buddy Heart unscrews at the bail and the top of the heart is extended at the center which made it easy to hold on to. We didn’t cremate our dog so we used a few strands of his hair for the inside. That being said, the opening is definitely big enough to add ashes with no problem.

Everything we needed to fill and seal came with the pendant. There was a funnel, filling sticks and some sealant. It took just less than five minutes to add the hair into the heart and seal it up. The instructions were easy to follow and very clear. Additionally, there was a 20” rose gold plated chain that was included at no additional charge.

The heart was also available in three other finishes so if you don’t like the copper finish you can go with stainless steel, gold plated over stainless or black rhodium plated. Having a variety of finishes made it a little easier to compare and see the different details of the heart. The copper finish seemed to highlight the paw print better than the others.

The shipping was quick and the presentation was beautiful. I ordered the heart on a Monday and it arrived that Wednesday. When the package was opened, there was a presentation box and inside of the presentation box was a jeweler’s gift box. The pendant was for me but it’s nice to know that if I ever wanted to send one as a gift, the pendant would be presented beautifully without me having to do a thing.

The Not So Good

The chain is hidden underneath the platform that the pendant rests on. Not great placement as I panicked looking through the box thinking that it was forgotten or I had lost it when opening the package.

A 20” chain might be too short for some and I would consider upgrading the chain to a longer one. The size and the weight of the pendant would be more suited for a 22” or 24” chain.

No engraving options. I would have liked to add my dogs name to the back side of the keepsake but engraving was not offered on this particular pendant.

Not a unisex pendant - styled more for women than a man.

The Bottom Line

The Copper Buddy Heart is exactly as the picture shows and what you see is what you get. Beautifully made, simple details and a lot of versatility. The heart will hold any remembrance that you choose as long as you can fit it through the opening and everything that you need to fill, seal and wear is included with the keepsake. Shipping was quick, the presentation was beautiful and special and at under $50, the value can’t be beat!
