Cremation Rings: A Brief Overview of Our History

Cremation rings have become a popular way to memorialize loved ones. The grieving process can be slow and painful, and cremation rings provide a discreet and personal way to remember someone. According to industry data, the U.S. cremation rate nearly doubled in the last 15 years and is projected to reach 65.2% by 2027. By 2027, the U.S. cremation rate will reach 65.2% and 78.8% in Canada1.

What Are Cremation Rings?

Cremation rings are designed to hold a small amount of ashes or other tribute in memory of a loved one or pet. The interior of the ring has a discreet compartment that can be sealed with a threaded screw to protect the ashes. These rings can be worn as a daily reminder of your family member, friend, or pet.

The first mourning jewelry dates back to the 1600s, during the Civil War and Victorian era, when families created memorial jewelry from the locks of a loved one's hair. The practice gained huge popularity when Queen Victoria mounted the death of her beloved Albert in 186. The queen wore a brooch containing a lock of his hair over her heart for the rest of her life2.

Cremation rings are versatile and offer a great option for anyone looking for a unique way to honor a person or pet. Available in an assortment of different metals, cremation rings can be filled with your choices of tribute, such as ashes, hair, dried flowers, or a piece of a favorite t-shirt. The ring can be further personalized with engraved text.

Moving forward into the mid-19th century, America had now been thrown into the Civil War, where loss of life was common. Soldiers would often leave locks of hair with their loved ones before shipping off to the battlefield. These locks of hair would then become mourning jewelry pieces if they did not return home (Hesson, 2023).

What Types Of Cremation Rings Are Available?

Cremation rings are available in a couple of different types. There are two main types: traditional cremation rings and ash rings. Let's take a look at the two distinct types and how they differ below.


Traditional cremation rings have a small compartment that can be accessed by unscrewing a threaded lid. A great example would be the Ladies Sterling Whimsical Heart Cremation Ring. You can see the threaded screw at the top of the heart. The interior compartment will hold less than ⅛ teaspoon of cremation ashes, and the ashes are added either by the funeral home or the individual wearer of the ring. The ashes are sealed inside the jewelry by applying a small amount of adhesive to the threads of the screw and securely tightening the screw in the opening.

You can find traditional cremation rings in a wide assortment of metals and themes and both men's and women's styles. The standard sizes range from whole sizes 5 - 9 for women and 9-12 for men. Traditional cremation rings are often made in bulk, which means a quick turnaround time if your size is in stock. Also, because the wearer or the funeral home is responsible for adding the ashes, the ring ships in 1-2 days.

There are some pros and cons to traditional cremation rings. Traditional cremation rings are typically a little more budget-friendly, often pre-fabricated and ready to ship. However, because they have a visible screw, it makes them obvious that they hold ashes. Additionally, the integrity of the screw can be easily compromised with chemicals in soaps, cleaners, and shampoos, so the wearer needs to be vigilant about removing the cremation ring when washing their hands, showering, etc. Traditional cremation rings also bear the responsibility of being filled by the wearer or by the funeral home.


Ash rings do not feature an interior compartment for the ashes to be placed inside. The ashes are part of the makeup of the ring. Less than ⅛ teaspoon of ashes are mixed with a gemstone-like resin and placed as a part of the ring as a focal point. For example, look at the Men's Dumaine With Graphite Silver Ash Ring. The graphite resin at the top center of the ring is a mixture of ash and resin that is allowed to harden, and when it does harden, it is stronger than stone. An artisan mixes the ashes with the resin, eliminating the necessity of the wearer or the funeral home to bear the responsibility.

Ash rings are also available in a wide assortment of metals and themes and in both men's and women's styles. The rings come in whole and half sizes, and custom sizes are available. The stock is often more limited, adding a 'specialty' aspect to ash rings you don't automatically get with traditional cremation rings. Also, because the artisan is responsible for adding the ashes, some time is needed to retrieve and mix them with the resin.

As with traditional cremation rings, ash rings have pros and cons. Because the ashes of the deceased are mixed with resin and are an integral visual part of the ring, there is no visible screw. This means that ash rings are more discreet, given that they have the look and feel of any high-end jewelry ring. With ash rings, the jewelry artisan is responsible for mixing the ashes with the resin. We have one designated professional who creates our ash rings. This allows for complete oversight by one individual and eliminates more than one person handling the ashes. The downside to ash jewelry is that they are typically more expensive than traditional cremation rings due to the specialty nature of the rings.

Why was ash jewelry created? We found that our customers were looking for something that was a little more discreet and that they wouldn't have to fill themselves. Ash rings offer both of those options with a pop of color. Removing the necessity for a screw but offering the option to visually 'see' the ashes with the resin mixture proved to offer the comfort they were looking for with no visible screw or the 'look' of typical cremation rings.


Permanently sealed rings also have an interior compartment for the ashes to be placed inside. Less than ⅛ teaspoon of ashes are placed inside the ring, and then we permanently seal the ring. What this means is that there is no visible screw, the ring is completely waterproof, AND permanently sealed rings are completely indistinguishable from regular jewelry. Our artisan adds the ashes and permanently seals them inside. This eliminates the wearer or the funeral home to bear the responsibility of adding the ashes.

Permanently sealed rings are considered a special order and are cast in real-time - i.e. when the order is placed. Because they are 'made to order,' permanently sealed rings are available in any style and whole or half size. Permanently sealed rings are available in sterling silver, solid 14k yellow gold, and solid 14k white gold. They can be created in virtually any theme or design.

There are some pros and cons with permanently sealed rings. Like ash rings, the ashes are integral to the ring design. There is no visible screw, making permanently sealed rings highly discreet and giving them the appearance of regular jewelry. We have one designated professional design team that works together to create the design, do the casting, and then fill the ring.

Permanently sealed rings also include a certificate of authenticity, assuring the wearer that the ashes that were sent in ARE the ashes in the ring. The downside to permanently sealed rings is that they are more expensive than traditional cremation rings due to the specialty nature of the rings, and the turnaround time is about 2 weeks with the design, casting, and production process.


With almost 20 years in the industry, we are very educated on cremation jewelry trends and what is next. Permanently sealed rings are not only indistinguishable from regular jewelry, but they are also 100% waterproof. This offers customers complete flexibility in wearing their ring in day-to-day life. It also puts the customer in the driver's seat - they choose the design, the metal, and everything from start to finish. Many seek a unique way to remember their loved ones - we offer them just that.

Cremation Ring Metals: What Are My Options?

Everyone prefers something different, and cremation rings for ashes are available in an assortment of beautiful metals that allow you to choose what appeals to your tastes and preferences.


Stainless steel cremation rings are an inexpensive and durable for those seeking a long-lasting ring. Stainless steel ash rings are durable and ideal for those hard on their hands - think mechanic, construction, etc. Stainless steel is very resistant to scratching3, and the rings are typically priced under $125.

Ash rings made out of stainless steel are milled, not molded. This means they cannot be resized, and the designs are limited. Stainless steel rings are an ideal option if you are looking for something simple and durable. Many stainless steel cremation rings have a wider band, so be sure to account for that when sizing and consider going up ½ size.


Sterling silver cremation rings are affordable for those looking for a cost-effective way to remember a family member, friend, or pet. The rings are crafted from solid .925 sterling silver and are ideal for daily wear regardless of lifestyle. Sterling silver cremation rings are generally priced under $200 and come in styles for both men and women.

Sterling silver has a rich history dating back 6000 years as one of the first five metals discovered on the planet. It was first used in the 12th century for commerce in Germany.

Sterling silver ash rings are molded, and this means that they can be easily resized, and there are endless styles and design options. The band thickness varies with a men's ash ring, typically having a wider band. Sterling silver rings are durable and harder than silver. That being said, sterling silver is still prone to scratches and tarnishing.


Gold-plated rings are a terrific option for those who are looking for the look of solid gold without the higher cost. Gold-plated ash rings typically have a base that is stainless steel or sterling silver, and the tone of the gold plating is slightly different from that of solid gold. Gold-plated cremation rings typically cost under $300, and there is a good amount of variety in styles and designs for both men and women.

There are some deterrents to choosing gold-plated ash rings as well. Despite the cheaper cost, it's important to note that you are getting what you paid for - gold plating. Over time, gold plating can wear off and tarnish and expose the base metal underneath4. Ash rings can be replated, and this does have an associated cost, as well as routine cleaning and maintenance. Gold-plated cremation rings are also prone to scratching over time. They might be best suited for those looking for a special occasion ring.


14K yellow gold cremation rings are a great option for those looking for the best. Most 14K yellow gold cremation rings are made to order with delivery in three to four weeks and are priced anywhere from $1000 to $1500. More elaborate designs and thicker band styles will cost a little more as there is a substantial increase in the metal needed to create the ring.

It's important to remember that you get what you pay for with solid gold. Solid gold is very durable and is ideal for those who are looking to replace a wedding band or are looking to have a custom-designed ash ring. 14k gold cremation rings also retain their value. They may be able to incorporate the ashes in a way that doesn't look like a traditional cremation ring. Although solid gold ash rings do require maintenance, they are an investment that will withstand the test of time.


14K rose gold cremation rings are ideal for those looking for something extraordinary. Cremation rings for ashes in 14k rose gold are available for men and women, priced at approximately $1,000-$1500. The soft rose tones are very appealing to women in particular. They are ideal for a woman who prefers the pink tones and the feminine approach in a cremation ring.

Rose gold ash rings may not suit an individual with cool skin tones. The pink undertones of the ring can draw out purple undertones and, for those with cool skin tones, can leave you looking washed out. Rose gold ash rings are more durable than traditional yellow gold or white gold rings and will not tarnish over time. This makes them more suited for everyday wear.


14K white gold cremation rings are available for both men and women and are crafted with elegance and beautiful tones. Solid 14k white gold rings are made to order and take approximately three to four weeks to deliver. A popular option for many, white gold rings range anywhere from $1000 and up, and the styles and designs have a broad appeal.

Much like 14k yellow gold, 14k white gold can scratch and is prone to tarnishing if it is not properly cared for. 14k white gold has the look of platinum at a fraction of the cost, and because white gold ash rings are molded, they are easy to resize. Ash rings of white gold may need rhodium plated over time to keep their 'white' color. Finally, because of their often heirloom appearance, 14k white gold ash rings are a great option for those looking for a family heirloom to pass down to future generations.

Metal choice deserves much time and consideration and should take time. Budget plays a major role in that decision, and I believe you should never spend more than you can afford. It's important to ask yourself some questions when choosing the best metal.

Am I going to wear the ring daily?

I have found that solid gold and sterling silver can take a better beating than plated metals. They have a durability that is second to none. That being said, plated metals offer you the option of a more expensive look for a fraction of the cost and could be a better option for those looking for a special occasion-only cremation ring.

How do I know I am getting solid 14k gold?

This is a great question! Regardless of where you buy from, real 14k gold should be stamped as such. Be bold and ask that question of any jeweler - either online or in person - before investing in a solid gold ash ring.

How do I know I am getting a quality product from a reputable jeweler?

Take the time to do your homework. What is their selection like? How many rings have they sold? How long have they been in business? What is their experience? To protect your investment, knowing exactly whom you are dealing with is important.

What Can I Put In My Cremation Ring?

The decision on how to personalize the interior of your cremation ring is a personal one. It should be based on your circumstances and comfort level. What is important is that you choose a tribute that brings you a measure of peace and solace.


Cremated remains have the potential to evoke physical and intense relationships with the dead as they provide a focus for memorialization and for conversation about the deceased (Heessels, 2012). It is common for people to refer to the remains taken home in an urn or scattered after cremation as "ashes." It is natural for many to assume that is exactly what they are. That is not true. Their appearance is only similar to ashes. Remains are ground-up bones of the deceased8.

Cremated ashes are perhaps the most common tribute for the interior of cremation rings. They need a relatively small amount of ashes - less than ⅛ teaspoon - and the ring styles are often discreet enough not to divulge what the interior holds.

The materiality of ashes creates possibilities to keep the human remains nearby and provides ways to create and reinforce the distance between the living and the dead (Mathjissen, 2017).

In my experience, families have one trepidation: filling the ring with ashes. It is not only highly personal, but also it can be challenging to take that step of handling the ashes of your loved one. That being said, it is that highly personal nature of the ashes that brings loved ones and family so much comfort by being close to a physical part of their loved one.

If adding cremation ashes is something you would like to do but are reluctant to do so, there are options available to assist you. Most funeral homes and mortuaries offer a professional filling service for cremation rings, and we routinely work directly with funeral homes to assist families looking for this service. Additionally, we offer a professional filling service and a filling and sealing kit for any family that purchases a cremation ring directly from Jewelry Keepsakes.


It is not uncommon for individuals to fill their cremation ring with the hair of their loved ones instead of ashes. A type of jewelry named "hair jewelry" has been created, an unusual yet popular way to cherish the memories of the deceased. This jewelry is made from the hair of the deceased. (Rahm, 1974). Add a few strands of hair into the interior of your men's cremation ring or your women's cremation ring as a way to keep the memory of your loved one close to you. This serves as a physical reminder and a very easy and hassle-free tribute to add to your ring.

A couple of instances where adding hair strands has proven helpful to families. Some families are unwilling to part with the ashes of their loved ones. When my nephew passed away, his parents did not want to part with any of his ashes - understandably. A lock of hair or a few strands of hair may be a better option in this situation as it still gives that physical reminder without compromising the 'whole' of the ashes.


A small piece of a t-shirt they always wore or another article of clothing can be added to the inside of your cremation ring in their memory. This is a great option as everyone has that article of clothing they always wear, that favorite worn t-shirt, an article of clothing they were recognized by or refused to part with.

Moreover, it takes very little! A very small piece of that clothing article is all that is needed to place inside the cremation ring. Since only a little is required, the piece can be taken from an inconspicuous part of the clothing not to disturb its integrity or take away from the memories it inspires.


A small amount of your pet's fur can be added to your cremation ring for pets, giving you a unique way to show your devotion to your pet. Much like adding a strand of hair, this symbolizes the physical part of your cherished pet without taking away from the 'whole' of the cremated ashes.

Pet hair or fur is also a wonderful remembrance for children or young adults who have lost their first pet. It gives them a part of their pet that they can help you insert into the remembrance and provides a way for them to grieve and talk about their loss, should they choose. It is a less scary option than ashes, yet it still gives them a tangible reminder that they can understand.

Making It Personal - Cremation Ring Engraving

Adding engraved text to the interior face of the band is a terrific way to up the personal nature of your cremation rings from ashes. Engraved text is available in either block or script font, and most cremation jewelry rings will hold up to 20 text characters.

The Poesy ring was a popular style during the Renaissance era. It was a sterling silver band with a poem or "poesy" inscribed on it. (Hort, 1919).

We have noticed that our customers often take this as an opportunity to think outside the box. Instead of initials, our customers have chosen a shortened song lyric, a particular phrase they shared with their loved one, such as "love you always" or "143 forever". It's important to note that there is no right or wrong engraving for the cremation ring, that the importance is in what holds special meaning to the wearer.

There are some things to consider when choosing engraving for a cremation ring. Engraving on the band's interior typically lasts longer than engraving on the band's exterior. The band's exterior is constantly exposed to elements, etc. and you will get more 'wear and tear' on the ring.

Take a look at this example. The owner of Jewelry Keepsakes, made a coin ring for himself several years ago. If you look closely, you can still see the precision of the text and the images from the coin on the band's interior. The band's exterior, however, has essentially been worn down to the smooth metal, with the images and text barely visible to the naked eye.

Ways To Wear Your Cremation Ring

Rings and brooches were the most common form of memento jewelry. They were also worn as memorial jewelry alongside necklaces, bracelets, earrings, cuff links, and tie pins (Tabon, 2021).

There are several ways in which humans can wear cremation rings. What is important is that you wear your cremation ring comfortably. Here are some ways our customers wear their cremation rings.


Cremation rings can be worn as a promise ring on the ring finger of the right hand as a symbol of your commitment and love. Promise rings are a terrific option for those who lost a sibling, good friend, or immediate family member.

These are great options for widows and widowers. The symbolism of a wedding ring is so sacred that many are unwilling to relinquish the meaning and visibility of their commitment on their left hand. "Historically tied to romance, a promise ring is given and worn as a sign of devotion," says Megan Mensink. A promise ring allows you to still show that commitment, however, in a symbolic way of the loss. I see it as a 'promise' to cherish them in death as you did in life.

Also, from the perspective of remarrying after loss, a promise ring allows you to hold onto those memories that you treasure from the past while still moving forward with a new love. In my interactions with customers, this has proven to be an option that helps lessen or alleviate the guilt or sadness that sometimes accompanies 'moving on.'


After losing a spouse or partner, men's and women's cremation rings can be worn as a replacement wedding band. When a spouse dies, the symbolism of the wedding band and the commitment that it stands for is changed. The band may serve more of a reminder of what they had and be a painful reminder of their loss.

An ash ring provides a great opportunity to repurpose that symbolism. Many of our customers still crave that show of love and dedication; however, they need it to take on a different visual look and feel. A cremation ring is just that - especially if you custom design your ring.


Cremation rings for pets and cremation rings for humans can be worn on a necklace and as a loving reminder of a person or pet you cherish. This is a fantastic way to honor anyone in your life that has passed. It is ideal for siblings, the loss of grandparents, or even best friends, but it is discreet yet personal. It can be hidden underneath clothing, should you choose.

This is also an ideal option if you work in an industry where you cannot wear jewelry on your hands. Having a husband in law enforcement, it is rare to see him with his wedding band throughout his career due to the nature of what he does. During work hours, he will wear his wedding band on a chain, and during such times as vacation or date night, he wears his ring on his wedding finger.

This is a great way to view jewelry as a family heirloom. Its small size and long-lasting nature make it an excellent educational tool by providing a tangible connection to history. Heirloom jewelry can glimpse family traditions and customs while allowing current owners to recall memories that help construct their identity and place themselves within a family timeline or hierarchy (Moore, 2016). Suppose the ring is intended to be worn on a necklace or chain. In that case, it can easily be passed down from generation to generation, and there is no need to worry about resizing, etc.

Cremation Ring Size Guide

Finding the right fit for your cremation jewelry ring is an important step in the process and plays a role in how the ring is worn. For example, if the ring is too loose, you may be reluctant to wear it for fear of losing the cremation ring. By the same token, if the ring is too tight and uncomfortable, there is a reluctance to wear and have the cremation ring get stuck on the finger. Let us help you by offering ways to make getting your ring size quick and effortless to get the best fit for your cremation ring.


The first step is choosing the finger on which you will wear the ring. Think about the purpose of the cremation ring. Will it replace a wedding band or serve as a promise ring? In traditional customs, the wedding ring is usually worn on the fourth finger of the left hand. This dates back to ancient times when there was a thought that a vein in that finger led straight to your heart5.

If you're choosing a cremation ring to wear as an accent ring, you may select the pinky finger or pointer finger. Remember that the fingers on the dominant hand are generally slightly bigger than those on the less dominant hand6. Be sure to measure the finger on the hand that you will be wearing the ring. However, if you elect to wear a cremation ring, knowing which finger you will wear it on is the first step.


The time of day is an important part of measuring your finger, believe it or not! Our fingers are smaller in the morning, and as the day goes on, our fingers get warm and tend to swell7. Measuring at the end of the day will assure you that you are getting a size that will fit comfortably from morning until night.


There are a couple of different methods to getting a correct measurement. Read below to find the method that works best for you.

Jewelry store:  Most jewelers and jewelry stores will size your finger at no charge, and there is no appointment necessary. This also means that you are having your finger sized by a professional.

Jewelry Keepsakes: Our cremation rings include a free ring sizer kit. Additionally, we are happy to send visitors to our site the kit. The kit contains instructions and everything needed to get the correct ring size for your cremation ring.

Wrap the ring sizer around the base of the finger on which you will be wearing the ring. Thread the end of the sizer through the small top to create a loop. Tug on the end until the loop is snug around the finger's base without being tight. The loop should be able to slide over the knuckle yet not fall off your finger when you wave your hand.

A piece of string: You can also use a piece of string to get your ring size. Take a piece of string and wrap it around your finger. Aim for a comfortable, snug fit, and we suggest marking the meeting point with a sharpie. The measured length is the circumference of your finger; you can match that length with a ring size using a ring sizer chart.

An existing ring:  If you want to ensure your cremation ring fits perfectly, there's a simple solution. Just grab a ring that fits the finger you plan to wear it on, measure the diameter with a ruler, and match it up with a ring sizer chart. This easy method guarantees the right size and a comfortable fit for your memorial ring. Don't settle for a ring that doesn't fit correctly - take the time to measure and get the perfect size for your cremation ring.


Based on my experience working for a jewelry company for 20 years, I have some personal tips that may prove helpful for getting the correct cremation ring size.

Keep in mind the width of the band. When choosing a wider band, go up ½ size as wider bands take up more space on the finger. Or, if choosing a very thin band, size down ¼ to ½ a size as they take up minimal space on the finger.

Your lifestyle needs to be a factor! As a woman who wears rings daily, is hard on her hands, and leads a very active lifestyle, I have found that functionality is key. For instance, I have the Ladies Felicity Ash Ring in memory of my two dads. One set of leaves contains my stepfather's ashes and has a grey resin. The other leaves contain my dad's ashes and a red resin. On my first day of wearing the ring, I caught in on a piece of gym equipment and bent it open. I would have chosen an ash ring with a slightly wider band with no opening in the middle, such as the Ladies Isadora Ash Ring.

How much ash will the cremation ring hold?

The interior compartment of cremation rings is made to hold a very small amount of ashes. Both ash rings and cremation rings hold less than 1/8 tsp of ashes.

How do I add the ashes to my cremation ring?

Adding the ashes to your cremation ring is easy! We include all the tools you need to fill and seal your cremation ring for ashes and a set of instructions. You can also follow these steps:

  • Locate and remove the screw using the small screwdriver that comes with your cremation ring order.
  • Place small ashes into the cremation ring using the included funnel and a plastic spoon.
  • Use the filling sticks to push the ashes into the compartment, careful not to overfill.
  • Screw the threaded screw back into the opening, making sure that the top of the screw sits flush with the exterior surface of the cremation ring.
  • Partially unscrew and apply a thin layer of adhesive to the threads of the screw, then immediately tighten.
  • Wipe away any excess adhesive.

If you have chosen an ash ring, we have you covered! Once your order is processed, we will immediately send an ash collection kit. Add your ashes to the kit and mail them to us using the included postage-paid label. We will mix the ashes with the resin and embed it into the ring.

My ring is too big. Can I get it resized?

If your cremation jewelry ring is too big and you did not have it engraved, we will exchange it for the next size down. If you did have your cremation ring engraved, we cannot return or exchange your cremation jewelry ring. You will need to take the ring to a local jeweler for resizing. Be sure to show the jeweler the location of the threaded screw, as resizing can compromise how the screw fits into the opening.

Are your women’s cremation rings for ashes of loved ones waterproof?

We recommend not wearing your cremation ring for ashes while bathing, swimming, or showering. Chemicals found in pools, soaps, and shampoos can damage the integrity of the seal and compromise the interior tribute. Place your cremation rings from ashes in a safe, dry place when swimming, doing things, or doing activities such as washing dishes.

My cat was buried. Can I still get a cremation ring for pet ashes?

You bet! Cremation rings for pet ashes do not have to be filled with pet ashes. You can add some of your pet's fur or hair, a small piece of a favorite toy, or virtually any personal reminder of them that will fit into the small interior compartment.

Will the ashes get wet inside the cremation ring if I wear it in the shower?

You should not wear your cremation ring while bathing or showering. Chemicals found in soaps and shampoos can damage the integrity of the seal and, therefore, put the ashes at risk inside the cremation ring. Store the ring in a safe place while showering.

The cremation ring I want doesn’t offer engraving. What do I do?

Call us at 1-877-723-7229 or email us at with your engraving questions and which cremation ring you are looking at for ashes. In some cases, we can offer a few characters of engraving.
