How Customizing Cremation Jewelry Adds Personal Touch

There is no one-size-fits-all regarding our tastes, personalities, emotions, and bodies. And, when it comes to cremation, mourning, and emotions, there are no set rules on this journey of grief and solace.

How we cope with grief is different for all of us, and one of the ways many deal with their loss is by honoring their departed loved one with cremation jewelry. If you are considering a piece of cremation jewelry to celebrate a departed loved one and wish to customize it but have no idea where to start, we are happy to share some examples and ideas to help you during this tender time. 

Why Consider Cremation Jewelry? 

The term cremation jewelry encompasses many types of jewelry pieces, from breathtakingly beautiful diamonds, fingerprint jewelry, personalized engravings, and more for every style and budget. With cremation jewelry, there is something meaningful and heartfelt for everyone, and many find it comforting to have their loved one carried with them wherever they are or go. 

The Traditional Cremation Jewelry: Vial Urn

The most common and possibly easily recognized kind of cremation jewelry is known as the vial urn. A vial urn, usually created from stainless steel, is a cylindrical pendant with a secure interior for keeping a loved one's ashes, a lock of hair, or any other memento one places within. This vial can come in many different shapes and meaningful symbols and can be placed on a chain and worn around the neck. 

Stainless steel is a beautiful material for cremation jewelry because it is highly durable and known for its longevity. When properly cared for, stainless steel remains flawless and shining without scratches. 

Fingerprint Cremation Jewelry

Fingerprint cremation jewelry is a pendant or keepsake with your deceased loved one's fingerprint., which can be touched and felt, allowing the wearer to feel the replica of a loved one's fingerprint. They can also be worn in various pieces and configurations, such as hearts, ovals, teardrops, a cross, cuff links, and dog tags, for a small example. 

Suppose a loved one has never had or held a fingerprint card. In that case, several options are available through employment, driver's license, notary public, or healthcare that may have fingerprints on file. 

Engraved Cremation Jewelry

Pendants are among the most popular types of engravable cremation jewelry, followed by rings, bracelets, cuff links, and watches. The engraving process begins with selecting a piece of engraved cremation jewelry that speaks to or reminds you of your loved one. In most cases, when purchasing custom cremation jewelry pieces online, sites like Legacy Urns will provide you with a tool or area within the site to write and specify what you would like to have engraved. 

You may encounter character limits as well. This is in place so artisans can ensure your cremation jewelry is engraved flawlessly without looking crowded or losing quality because jewelry pieces can be relatively small. In addition, a reputable site offering cremation jewelry customization and engraving should have pieces in their line that can allow you to engrave names, dates, or initials along the back of the piece. 

Jewelers can use anything from hand tools to rotary tools or state-of-the-art laser engraving that is perfect each time. 

Ideas for Customized Engravings

If you are unsure, consider something short, sweet, and meaningful when deciding what to have engraved. You can pay tribute in many beautiful ways with just a few words. 

  • In Loving Memory
  • Forever in my (or 'our') hearts
  • Until We Meet Again
  • The Melody Lingers On
  • I am with you, always. 
  • Loved Beyond Words
  • No Longer By My Side, Forever in My Heart
  • Blessed to Have Known You
  • I Carry You With You
