Memorial jewellery represents one of the most creative ways to commemorate the memory of a loved one who has died. There are lots of different ways to wear memorial jewellery, with something to suit every taste. Here is a quick look at what we mean by ‘memorial jewellery’.
Understanding memorial jewellery
In addition to being known as memorial jewellery, this style of jewellery is also sometimes called funeral jewellery, remembrance jewellery or cremation jewellery. It is traditionally used in the likes of pendants, rings and necklaces, and incorporates a loved one’s hair or cremated ashes to develop a memorable and heartfelt keepsake of the one who has been lost.
While scattering ashes or keeping cremated remains is still a popular way to keep the deceased close, memorial jewellery requires only a small amount of the ashes (or hair) of the individual in order to create a stunning and decorative item. These gifts are popular with families who want to keep their loved one close.
What does memorial jewellery look like?
Memorial jewellery comes in many different shapes and sizes. At Nicky Robin, the ashes or hair of your loved one will be specially sealed with jewellery grade polymer, which is available in 22 shades to ensure plenty of variety! Each item is also stored in a branded gift box, which comes complete with a certificate of authenticity and a polishing cloth to keep your decorative locket, ring, pendant or charm looking its very best for longer.
Converting jewellery to memorial pieces
In addition to crafting handmade memorial jewellery, it is also possible to convert an existing piece of jewellery into a memorial item. At Nicky Robin, founder and designer Nicola Yates is happy to take requests for commissions which transform your favourite pieces into jewellery made with ashes.
This method is another way of ensuring you get the perfect piece of jewellery for your tastes and your needs, as it allows for a truly unique keepsake.
Keepsakes of beloved pets
We don’t only offer memorial jewellery for human loved ones, but to help commemorate the lives of pets, too. Pets quickly become a part of the family, and so if you want to keep their memory with you always, then Nicola will show the same care and attention to crafting a piece using your pets ashes.
Whichever style of memorial jewellery you choose, this is the ideal way to celebrate and remember a life.
