Cremation Jewelry: Trinity Heirloom Vessel
Memorial jewelry has come a long way since ornate brooches containing locks of hair from deceased loved ones were made fashionable by Queen Victoria in the late 1800s.
Today, cremation jewelry comes in almost countless styles, all designed to hold a tiny portion of cremated remains, burial earth or dried funeral flowers or a lock of hair. One popular example is the Trinity Heirloom Vessel, named for the distinctive triquetra symbol, or trinity knot, displayed on the pendant’s presentation box.
Designed and created by a professional jeweler, the Trinity Heirloom Vessel can be worn as a beautiful pendant or displayed in a glass-domed case. Contents are visible through three window panels around the cylinder, which will accommodate up to three lines of engraved text, with up to
15 characters per line.
Each heirloom vessel comes with a 20-inch silver chain, instructions and a funnel to aid in placing the contents into the cylinder, which is enclosed by a threaded, dual-gasket seal. A general household glue or epoxy may be used to permanently seal the opening for additional security.
