Cremation JewelryLearn about Cremation Jewelry
Along with the rising number of cremations in recent years comes a wide range of options for storing cremated remains and memorializing deceased loved ones. Among those options, cremation jewelry is quickly becoming a favorite choice of survivors who wish to pay tribute to their departed loved ones and hold them forever close at heart.
Here are some of the reasons more and more people are choosing cremation jewelry from the large assortment offered by Perfect Memorials.
- Cremation jewelry comes in many attractive styles.
From simple cylinders, to traditional hearts and religious symbols, to unique and exquisite works of art – cremation jewelry comes in a wide range of styles to suit any taste. The cremation jewelry pieces carried by Perfect Memorials are crafted from a variety of materials, including:
- Sterling silver
- White or yellow gold
- Gold vermeil
Cremation jewelry may be adorned with precious or semi-precious stones, such as diamonds, rubies, sapphires, and emeralds. Some cremation jewelry selections can be personalized with engraving, while others are designed to hold a small photo or lock of hair in addition to a tiny portion of cremains.
Depending on your preference, you may wear your cremation jewelry selection as an attractive pendant or bracelet, or you may choose a style to be worn discreetly, under clothing. Perfect Memorials also carries glass display domes for those who prefer to showcase their cremation jewelry in a place of honor.
- Cremation jewelry is comforting.
Keepsakes can bring great comfort to those who are grieving. Even after the pain of grief has subsided, a photograph or piece of clothing from the loved one who has died can help to keep memories alive. For many survivors, cremation jewelry, which contains a tiny physical remnant of a life once so vibrant, is the most comforting keepsake of all. Bereaved pet owners, too, find cremation jewelry a fitting way to remember their faithful companions.
- Cremation jewelry is practical.
Following the death and cremation of a loved one, there is the question of what to do with the cremated remains. Rather than burying or scattering the ashes or storing them in a single urn, cremation jewelry is ideal for sharing among family members who wish to keep a small portion of the cremains.
- Cremation jewelry is affordable.
Perfect Memorials offers cremation jewelry to fit any budget, from simple pieces under $29.95 to the most exquisite designs made of precious metals and gemstones.
Filling and Caring for Cremation jewelry
If you are considering a purchase of cremation jewelry, you may be wondering just how the ashes will be placed in the pendant or bracelet you choose. The process is really quite simple.
Each cremation jewelry piece can be filled with a small funnel and a screw-type opening, which you can open by twisting the screw with your fingers or using a small screwdriver, depending on the design. A small pin or toothpick can help you guide the cremains through the funnel and into the jewelry chamber.
Most styles of cremation jewelry are designed with a secure seal. If you anticipate that the jewelry may come in contact with water, though, you may prefer the added security of sealing the jewelry with a permanent adhesive. In that case, simply apply the adhesive to the screw before you reinsert it into the opening, then twist to close tightly. (Keep in mind, however, that wearing cremation jewelry while swimming or bathing is not recommended.)
Should you wish to have someone help you fill your cremation jewelry, simply call a funeral home or crematory in your area. Most funeral-services professionals will be happy to assist you at little or no charge.

Choosing the right size urn is easy. For every one pound before cremation you will need 1 cubic inch of volume. For example, a loved one weighing 200 pounds will need an urn that is at least 200 cubic inches or larger. Choosing an urn larger then you need is OK.
