Memorial and Cremation Jewelry: Ideas to Remember a Loved One
Following the death of a loved one, we seek out ways to remember, honor and treasure their memory in a lasting and significant way. Wearing jewelry specially designed for the bereaved provides a comfortable way to remember a loved one. Many people wear memorial or cremation jewelry in the form of pendants, bracelets or pins. They can contain inspirational poetry, a meaningful verse of scripture or a memento of a loved one.
Cremation jewelry is a more recent trend, and the designs vary from simple to elaborate. They are usually cylinder or locket shaped pieces made of silver, gold or glass that contain a small portion of the cremated remains of a loved one. Wearing jewelry like this may not be for everyone, but for many people, the idea is comforting.
Carbon Gem Jewelry
Another option is having a gemstone made containing your loved one’s carbon. These are created using either the cremated remains, or a lock of hair, if your loved one was buried. They are called Life Gems and are actually synthetic diamonds made from your loved one’s carbon. They stones can be made colorless or in various hues, including blue, red, yellow or green. The gem can then be placed in the setting of your choice. For more information about Life Gems, see www.lifegems.com.
When the grieving process comes to a conclusion of sorts and the bereaved find acceptance with the passing of someone dear to them, they often conclude that the person is only truly lost to them if they are not remembered. As long as they are remembered in a way that is comfortable and significant, the love that was shared is kept alive.
There are many different ways to treasure the memory of a loved one and finding the right way for each individual is important. Memorial and cremation jewelry allows you to preserve their memory and wear a lasting tribute to your lost loved one.
