Unique Memorial Ideas

Funeral keepsakes are an important and necessary part of the grieving process providing comfort to family and friends following loss. It's natural to want a special memento to remember a beloved one who has departed. These precious and priceless reminders can include a variety of different options from personalized candles to memorial diamonds and holiday remembrance ornaments.

Personalized Funeral Candle Keepsakes


A recent study conducted showed that more than forty percent of funeral homes use personalized candles at memorial services and funerals. Many bereaved find comfort in watching the personalized candles burn at the service.

Additionally, their soothing effect can be enjoyed for years to come. A personalized funeral candle memento can be given to family and friends following the services. These keepsake candles offer a cherished reminder of a loved one. They can be lit on special occasions or simply whenever the bereaved wants to have a special moment to reminisce about their loved one.

The funeral candles can be fully personalized and consist of up to four full-color pictures, special quotes or poems can also be included. This type of funeral keepsake is an ideal way to honor and remember a loved one for years to come.

Memorial Diamonds


Created from Hair or Ashes

One of the most personal types of funeral keepsakes are memorial diamonds. These man made diamonds can be created to honor a loved one or even a pet that has passed away.

Memorial diamonds are created using hair or the cremated ashes of the deceased. In approximately seventy days, what would have taken thousands of years naturally, a genuine diamond can be created.

These memorial diamonds are real diamonds. They are optically, chemically and physically identical to earth mined diamonds. The key difference is that a memorial diamond forever encompasses the essence of your loved one.

They are can be created in various sizes and cuts and stunning colors of blue, red, cognac, yellow-green and white. The loose diamonds can then be set into whatever type of cremation jewelry you prefer.

A memorial diamond is a distinctive way to create a funeral keepsake that allows you to hold on to love in a tangible and elegant way. They also are a wonderful heirlooms to pass on to future generations.

Holiday Remembrance Ornaments


Holiday remembrance ornaments can be a thoughtful and comforting gift for those who have lost a loved one. These personalized ornaments can be given as a personal funeral keepsake to remember a mother, father, child, aunt, uncle, grandparent, or special friend.

These hand-blown funeral keepsakes are dipped in 22 carat gold and can be personalized with the name and dates of the deceased.  They offer a beautiful memento to display and to remember a loved one.

Remembrance ornaments are an ideal funeral keepsake to honor someone who have passed away during the year.  Also, when a loved one passes away before or immediately after the holidays, during that time each year memories of the deceased can flood in unexpectantly.

Having a holiday remembrance ornament to display in honor of your beloved one is an excellent way to comfort and honor the departed during the holidays. It can also offer peace and healing to those who are grieving.
