What is Cremation Jewelry?

Everything You Need To Know

Coming to terms with the passing of a loved one is beyond difficult. Our sense of loss is coupled with the desire to be close to them again. We may find ourselves lacking closure, finding it difficult to complete our daily tasks, and may even experience despair and anger at the fact that they are gone.

If your loved one has been taken from you, we want you to know that we can relate and that we are sorry you are going through this difficult time. While it takes time to move through the grieving process, we hope that we can help you with our cremation jewelry.

In this guide, we will explain what cremation jewelry for ashes is, how it may help you in this difficult journey, and provide you with commonly asked questions surrounding the topic.

What Is Cremation Jewelry?

One of the hardest things to do as a grieving family or friend of a loved one is to let them go. For many, the end of a funeral service or cremation service is also their last chance to say one final goodbye.

In some cases, people may choose to scatter the ashes of their loved one in a designated spot that they can revisit every year, while others may choose to place the cremains into an urn and take them home to sit on a mantel. When the beloved is admired and loved by several groups of people, families may choose to place the cremains into a smaller sized urn and place it in a columbarium or mausoleum.

If these options seem like they place your loved one too far out of reach, it may be more comforting to know that you can opt for cremation jewelry.

Also known as ash jewelry or memorial jewelry, this option allows you to keep a small amount of your loved one’s cremains with you at all times, serving as a way to hold their memory, their life story, and their spirit close to you.

Cremation jewelry holds the cremains of your loved one, but it can also hold a lock of your loved one’s hair, dried flowers from their service, or other small tokens of remembrance. It most commonly comes as personalized cremation jewelry that is wearable.

Many opt for either a cremation jewelry necklace to be worn around the neck, a cremation bracelet to be worn around the wrist, cremation rings to be worn around the finger, or you may choose to get it as earrings or keychains.

Other types of memorial jewelry do exist, which we will cover in a later section in this guide.

All types of memorial ash jewelry contain an interior compartment where the cremation ashes rest, locked away securely. You may choose to place other sentimental items like strands of hair or pet whiskers into the compartment, but please note that the room inside is extremely limited. Cremation jewelry that has an interior compartment is different from jewelry that is infused with the ashes of your loved one.

What Is Cremation Jewelry Made From Ashes?

When the jewelry is crafted and infused with your loved one’s ashes, this is called cremation ash jewelry. The concept of remembrance is the same yet the way in which the jewelry is created is entirely different.

The most common types you will see where the ashes are infused into the piece are glass, porcelain, or similar materials which are then transformed into items like crystals, diamonds, or beading.

Where typical cremation jewelry holds the ashes inside a small compartment discreetly placed on the keepsake, cremation jewelry made from ashes actually integrates the ashes into the make-up of the jewelry.

This type of cremation jewelry is more expensive to purchase because of the process involved and it can take several days to several weeks to create it.

What Is The History Of Cremation Jewelry?

Generally speaking, the meaning behind grief jewelry throughout history was to acknowledge the loss of a loved one and the difficult transition the family would have to make without them. It served as a way to remind oneself of their own mortality, to reflect on how precious life is, and it served as a way to honor a loved one’s memory.

While the exact origin date of cremation jewelry is unknown, there is evidence throughout our history that mourning jewelry did exist. Today, it is quite a popular option among families of bereaved individuals because the loss of someone loved can be traumatic and getting used to life without them is a difficult transition.

CREMATION JEWELRY THROUGH THE YEARS

Like anything else, cremation jewelry transcended and evolved from decade to decade. Let's take a look at how cremation jewelry has changed through the years into what families use today as a personal way to remember a loved one.

16th Century - First Known As Mourning Jewelry

Back in the 1500s (16th century), the concept of mourning jewelry, much like jewelry for ashes, was given to families as a symbol of loss.

This type of jewelry was referred to a “memento mori”, the Latin phrase for “remember [that] you will die” as a way to encourage individuals to pray for their loved ones and reflect on their own mortality. It was often given to the family by close relatives or close friends.

17th Century - Memorial Jewelry Begins To Evolve

During the 1600s (17th century), memorial jewelry evolved, bringing with it the idea that a loved one’s memory should be honored through the wearing of rings.

This type of grief jewelry was to be worn as a daily reminder that our loved ones had influence over our lives and that their memory deserved to be remembered. To help with this, the rings would be engraved with the beloved’s name, age, birth, and death date.

18th Century - Acceptance of Cremation Jewelry

In the 1700s or 18th century is when grief jewelry became extremely common among the bereaved. With the passing of Prince Albert of England, Queen Victoria chose to give her entire court mourning clothes and dark jewelry, crafted from black wood and onyx.

This notes a dramatic shift in both the use and acceptance of cremation ash jewelry, as from here on out all jewelry made for this purpose became more elaborately designed.

It was also during the 18th century where locks of hair started to be incorporated with the jewelry. While it was not placed into an interior compartment like it is nowadays, it was beautifully braided into or weaved into lockets.

19th Century - Giving Families A Way To Remember

Finally, in the 1800s or 19th century, it was recorded that men during the Civil War would leave behind locks of their hair. This was a gesture made by the men so that their families would have a piece of them to incorporate into mourning jewelry if they did not come back home.

How Is Cremation Jewelry Worn & Displayed?

The most common iterations of memorial jewelry were rings or lockets. The rings would be displayed on the finger and would be engraved with a phrase, date of birth, name, and death date of the individual. The lockets, on the other hand, would often come with a lock of hair and it was to be worn around the neck.

While many basic rings, lockets, and necklaces were used as mourning jewelry through the ages, families in modern times have an unlimited amount of options they can choose from to create highly personalized cremation jewelry.

Families can even have handmade jewelry crafted for their pets, like this brilliant copper buddy heart cremation pendant.

How Does Cremation Jewelry Hold The Ashes?

No matter what type of cremation jewelry you purchase, it will be handcrafted and designed with a small, hollow space that runs down the center of the piece.

This interior cavity is discreetly hidden away, with the access point being completely flush with the top or bottom of the jewelry piece. The ashes of your loved one will be inserted into this interior cavity and closed off so that they remain inside.

The jewelry's interior cavity is accessed either through a threaded bail, a threaded stopper, or through a threaded screw. These components can be screwed and unscrewed to provide access to the interior of the piece.

A small funnel is used to place the cremated remains into the interior cavity and then the bail, stopper, or screw is put in place to seal the cavity closed.

What Are The Different Kinds Of Bails?

The interior compartment of all cremation jewelry pieces will be made with one of the three types of bail styles. Regardless of what style you pick, it will be discreet and provide easy access to the interior cavity and the ashes it holds.

THREADED BAIL

With the threaded bail style, the interior of the inner compartment is exposed when the bail is unscrewed. A bail, also spelt bale, is mostly used with necklaces and is placed at the center of the necklace where the pendant hangs down.

A classic bail design will allow a chain to pass through it via a connecting ring. A hidden bail, on the other hand, can be connected to the back of the pendant so that it cannot be seen.

With cremation ash jewelry, a bail is threaded into the pendant like the bottom of a screw and can be removed by turning the bail to the left with your fingertips.

Once your selected remembrance item is placed into the interior cavity, an adhesive is added to the threads of the bail and the bail is tightened. Once in place, a chain and necklace can be threaded through the bail, allowing the pendant to be worn.

THREADED SCREW

With the threaded screw style, a screw is placed discreetly in the pendant and is hardly noticeable when screwed in. This is because it sits flush with the face of the pendant.

Depending on the style of the ash jewelry, it can be placed at the bottom or along the back side of the pendant and will require you to use a flat edge screwdriver to remove it.

When the threaded screw is removed, it reveals an opening to the interior cavity, allowing for you to place in your cremated remains or other sentimental items.

Once you have filled the compartment, an adhesive is applied to the threads of the screw and it is tightened until it sits flush with the face of the pendant.

If you go with the threaded screw style, the pendant will come with an attached ring, which is where you can attach a chain so that your jewelry can be worn.

What Are The Different Kinds Of Cremation Jewelry?

Due to the rise in popularity of cremation jewelry, ash infused jewelry, and handmade pet jewelry, there is an endless amount of possibilities when it comes to choosing a type. When browsing online shops, you are going to come across cremation pendants, necklaces, rings, bracelets, brooches, charms, keychains, urns, crystals, diamonds, and ones made with specifics like fingerprints, photos, hair, and birthstones.

All cremation jewelry is completely customizable in their materials, in their design, and in their decoration.

CREMATION PENDANTS

Also referred to as necklaces, these are worn around the neck. They can come in just about any type of design, shape, or material and are ideal for men, women and even young adults.

Since these are the most common, you can ask to have them designed in a wide variety of shapes and forms, including hearts, letters, teardrops, crosses, as photo lockets, and even millenniums.

They can be created using stainless steel, plated with white gold, rose gold, yellow gold, and silver and many come with gemstones and intricate engravings.

Personalized photo lockets are a great way to store your favorite photo of your loved one so you can look at it when you miss them. Letters are a great way to honor and remember their name.

CREMATION RINGS

If you would rather a piece of jewelry that sits extremely close to your body, then rings are the perfect option.

They can be worn in all types of weather, will fit nicely underneath gloves, and work well for individuals who use their hands a lot. Cremation rings come in a wide variety of styles and colors and can have their urn customized to suit the style that you choose.

For instance, some cremation rings for ashes might feature a charm, while others might have beading or birthstones along the edge. Others may use crystal resin to add a colorful pop to the ring.

CREMATION KEYCHAIN

If you do not want your piece of cremation jewelry sitting against your body, then going with a keychain may be the best option for you.

It still allows you to keep your loved one’s memory with you, but can be placed on a lanyard, on your keys, on a purse, on a backpack, or attached to the mirror in your car.

This is a great way to still get the benefit of the portable feature of cremation jewelry, without having it directly on your person. They can be fashioned into many different designs and styles, such as hearts, pawprints, crosses, or even feature a photo of your loved one.

Cremation keychains are ften made with brass, stainless steel, copper accents, and can even come plated in gold or rose gold.

CREMATION BRACELETS

These are a lovely option for those who prefer to wear jewelry on their wrists rather than their fingers or neck. They can be customized with various materials and come in a wide variety of colors and designs that can be matched to the type of outfits you wear.

For instance, this beautiful gold-plated and brass “Remember Me” bracelet is made with black leather for a very nice contrast. While this “Black Satin” cremation bracelet has a beautiful gloss to it and can be personalized with two lines of text.

You can also get ones that are adjustable or come with an end chain that has several loops for easy wearing.

ASHES INFUSED INTO JEWELRY

With cremation ash jewelry, instead of taking a small pinch of cremains and placing it inside an interior compartment, this type of jewelry is made with the ashes.

This type of jewelry goes a step farther than cremation jewelry, and gives the wearer a timeless family heirloom of their parent, child, pet, partner, or friend. While it does not replace your loved one, it can help you feel close to them.

The most common type of material used for this is glass, as the cremains can be mixed into the glass during the glassblowing process. The final result is a beautiful pendant.

What Are Some Other Types Of Memorial Jewelry?

While cremation jewelry and memorial ash jewelry are a beautiful way to pay tribute to your loved one and keep them close, not everyone is going to want to store their loved one’s cremains in this manner. For those who are looking for alternative memorial jewelry options that don’t contain ashes, there is photo engraved jewelry and thumbprint jewelry.

Photo cremation jewelry gives you the option of having your loved one’s photograph engraved directly onto your jewelry. These are often crafted out of stainless steel, can be gold-plated, and can be designed to hold or not hold ashes.

The engraving of the photograph is done to exact likeness and gives a beautiful visual reminder of your loved one. Photo engraved jewelry is available in both black and white grayscale and full color engraved images.

Also known as fingerprint jewelry, your loved one’s fingerprint is laser engraved directly onto a piece of jewelry. This can be a pendant, ring, bracelet, cufflinks, or even charms that attach to chains or bracelets.

This is a unique and one-of-a-kind way to have a keepsake of your loved one. Most commonly made from sterling silver, stainless steel, white gold, 14K and 18K gold as well as black, rose gold and gold plated.

What Types Of Materials Are Used To Make Cremation Jewelry?

When choosing a piece of cremation jewelry, it is important to understand which type of metal your piece is made from. This is because the metal type will have specific attributes, price point, composition, and durability.

The metals that are commonly used in cremation jewelry range from stainless steel, sterling silver, glass, copper and brass accents, wood, and solid 14K gold. Let’s dive into these materials a little bit more.

Stainless Steel

This is a metal alloy, primarily made from iron and small amounts of carbon and other metals. It is extremely durable, hard, and very lightweight and has a bright sheen to it. It is naturally resistant to corrosion and is one of the least expensive metals to purchase.

Perfect fit for those with sensitive skin who are allergic to common metals or for those who work physical labor jobs.

Sterling Silver

This is one of the highest quality of silvers available which makes it a fantastic alternative to gold and silver pieces. It is an alloy, meaning that it is a mixture of 92.5% pure silver and other metals like copper or nickel.

It is extremely durable compared to other metals and lasts for years when it is properly cared for. Great for those with cool or neutral skin tones.

Glass

Since glass cremation jewelry is made via glassblowing and lampwork techniques, every single piece is extremely unique. Handcrafted pieces may use molten glass that is spun to create elaborate designs, and many colors can be infused into the final piece.

It is also one of the most commonly used materials for making cremation infused ash jewelry.

Wood

Wood is becoming more popular due to how unique the piece can look. Wooden cremation jewelry pieces are much different in their design, shape, and material, giving buyers another way to personalize their jewelry that goes beyond what metal offers.

These are priced affordably and can be crafted from exotic woods.

Solid 14K Yellow Gold

While gold in general is more expensive, solid 14K gold is perfect for those who want the traditional radiance and timeless look of a gold piece. It will never tarnish, requires minimal cleaning, and is easily altered or repaired.

14K solid gold offers a good mix of durability, value, and purity, while being affordable and suitable for both men and women.

Solid 14K White Gold

This is a popular option among those who want an eye catching shine, with durability that outmatches sterling silver. 14K white gold does not tarnish, is resistant to scratches and dents, and is a fantastic fit for those who enjoy the classic look of silver but want a hardier piece.

Often fashioned into contemporary designs, a 14K cremation jewelry piece is going to match any fashion style.

What Can You Put In Your Cremation Jewelry?

When purchasing personalized cremation jewelry, there are plenty of small tokens that you can place into your pendant, ring, bracelet, or necklace. The only limitation is the size of the token that you would like to place into your cremation jewelry, as these pieces can only hold items up to a certain size.

While many individuals choose to place cremated ashes into the piece, more and more people are starting to place other types of sentimental items in. The main thing to remember is that you want to choose an item that is close to your heart and that you are comfortable with placing into your memorial jewelry. Here are a few examples of what you can place into your memorial jewelry.

Cremated Ashes

This is often the first choice of families, as it is an ideal option for those who want to have a physical reminder of their loved one within a keepsake. The ashes are kept secure inside a discreet, interior compartment, which can hold approximately one eighth of a teaspoon of cremains.

The exterior does not reveal that any of the ashes are inside.

If you are choosing to have cremation ash jewelry created for your loved one, make sure that everyone within the immediate family is on board with the decision. Some individuals may not want to lose a portion of their deceased loved one, no matter how small that piece is, as some take solace in keeping their loved one all together in one place.

A Lock Of Hair

Another option that works really well with cremation jewelry is a lock of hair. The interior compartment is just large enough that a few strands of hair can be placed and locked securely away.

This is an ideal alternative for those who do not want to place cremated ashes into the jewelry piece, as it still fulfills that need for a physical reminder.

The immediate family can ask for a few strands of hair from their loved one’s doctors or from the funeral directors conducting their ceremony. If you are not an immediate family member, but you wish to secure a few strands of hair, you would need to get permission from the family.

Dried Flowers

If you are looking for a really unique way to commemorate your loved one, get a few of their favorite flowers and dry out the leaves. Not only is this a very easy way to get a special item for your ash jewelry, but it’s such a special way to pay homage to them.

To add a dried flower to your urn jewelry, simply place them in a plastic bag and gently massage it until it is crushed into smaller pieces. Then use a small funnel to slide the pieces into the interior of your memorial jewelry and seal the bail, stopper, or screw with an adhesive.

Soil From The Burial Site

The ground of the burial site can provide a very personal way to remember the passing of a loved one. This is an ideal option for those who may not be able to visit the burial site on a regular basis or for those who have been incredibly touched by the funeral service.

Make sure to grab loose or sandy soil that does not contain any rocks as rocks can get caught in the opening of your cremation ash jewelry, preventing it from being filled properly. Keep the soil in a small container or secured bag until it can be used in your ash jewelry.

If you do not have access to the burial site or do not want to take soil from the area, you can use soil from any of their favorite locations. Examples of this could be a hiking trail they always used, their favorite beach, soil from their backyard or childhood home, or even soil from their favorite forest or campground. The important part of this, is to choose the soil from a place that holds great sentimental and emotional value.

A Small Piece Of Clothing

Another alternative option is to place a small piece of their favorite clothing into the memorial jewelry. It could be a small piece of a scarf they wore every winter, a cutting of their favorite pair of jeans they would never throw away, or even a t-shirt that they adored.

This is ideal for individuals who want a physical reminder of their loved one but are not keen on keeping items like hair locks or ashes in their jewelry.

What Other Options Do You Have With Cremation Jewelry?

While adding items into the interior of your cremation jewelry is one way to make it unique to your loved one, there are other options to make it unique to you.

TEXT ENGRAVING

Most cremation jewelry comes with the ability to add a few lines of text onto the back of the piece. Many individuals like to get either the first, middle, and last name of their loved one, the birth and death date, or the relationship the loved one had with them.

CHOOSE A DIFFERENT CHAIN

There are different chain lengths available on all cremation jewelry. For pendants, each piece comes with a FREE 20” matching chain. Upgraded options for 18", 20", 22", 24", and 30” chains are available. This allows for greater versatility with your jewelry.

ADD A BIRTHSTONE

Adding a birthstone rider heart to your selection allows for individuals to personalize another part of their jewelry. Choose their birth month, yours or even the birthstone for a month that holds special meaning or is a reminder of a particular milestone.

How Do I Fill My Cremation Jewelry?

We understand that filling cremation jewelry is not an every day ordinary task. To give you an idea of how cremation jewelry is filled, here is some more information on what to expect. You will need the filling kit, the cremation jewelry and the remembrance for the interior.

STEP 1: LOCATE AND REMOVE THE THREADED SCREW.

Locate and remove the threaded screw. This can be done by removing the threaded bail at the top of the keepsake or by removing the set screw on the back, side or bottom of the pendant.

STEP 2: PLACE THE ASHES INTO THE FUNNEL

Insert the tip of the funnel into the opening of the pendant and, using a plastic spoon or other utensil, place a very small amount of ashes into the funnel. Use the filling sticks to gently push any ashes into the opening of the keepsake. Fill the jewelry about 80% full.

STEP 3: REINSERT THE BAIL

Reinsert the threaded bail or set screw and make sure that it sits flush with the surface of the jewelry. If it does not, than remove the screw and gently tap out some of the cremains.

STEP 4: APPLY THE ADHESIVE & TWIST TO CLOSE

Unscrew the threaded bail or set screw about half-way. Use a toothpick to apply a thin layer of adhesive on the threads of the screw and then quickly twist the screw in securely.

STEP 5: WIPE AWAY EXCESS ADHESIVE & WEAR

Wipe away any excess adhesive from the surface of the jewelry and allow the adhesive to set and cure for about an hour. You can then begin wearing your cremation jewelry!

While cremation jewelry will be water resistant in varying degrees, we do not recommend that you submerge your jewelry piece in water at all, especially in water where chemicals or soaps will be present.

Do you have to add ashes to cremation jewelry?

Is cremation jewelry a suitable gift for a child?

While cremation jewelry can be a wonderful gift for a child, it is important to take the child’s personality, energy levels, and lifestyle into account.

Keychains are great in that they can go on the child’s backpack and have a lower chance of getting lost or tangled.

Not at all! Cremation jewelry is made for both men, women, and children. There is such a wide assortment of memorial jewelry available in many shapes, sizes, and forms that you can choose what appeals to you the most.

Will cremation jewelry tarnish?

Over time, certain types of cremation jewelry can tarnish due to the natural oils in your skin or from wearing certain kinds of perfume. Sterling silver will tarnish over time or will tarnish more quickly if it comes into contact with water but weekly cleaning and polishing with a jeweler's cloth can prevent tarnish.

Plated-gold will tarnish if perfume gets directly on it (spray first before putting on your jewelry). 14K gold can tarnish a little bit because it’s not 24K solid, but it can be easily cleaned with warm water and basic dish soap.

How do I add the ashes?

You will need to open the discreet interior compartment of your cremation jewelry by either unscrewing the bail at the top of the pendant or by location the small hidden screw on the bottom. You can remove the bail by twisting it gently to the left and the screw with a specially designed screwdriver.

Once you have the bail, stopper, or screw off, use the filling and sealing kit we sent you to add the ashes. Step-by-step instructions are provided on how to do this.
