Not everyone has the same way of remembering a loved one. Some people choose to bury the person in a cemetery while others prefer to have their ashes close by in a beautiful display urn. For some, however, the best way to immortalize a person and to keep them close is to turn to memorial jewelry. There are lots of options available that many funeral homes offer to help with the grieving process.
A new kind of option for those who want to have a loved one cremated is to choose cremation jewelry. These are pieces of jewelry that have compartments in which to store ashes or even locks of hair. Although jewelry like this has roots in the Victorian era, there are beautifully modern pieces made of all different materials. Most people prefer stainless steel options for endurance. There are customization options that allow the family to choose an important symbol or even an initial to get engraved on the surface. Many Rensselaer, NY cremation services make these available in many different sizes and styles.
Another kind of memorial option is to choose a recording of a loved one’s voice and have it transcribed into sound waves and then printed on bracelets or pendant. This can be a great option for people who do not want cremation, but who do want a loved one close by. These are wonderfully inventive jewelry options that can help with closure.
Reaffirming Faith Pieces
There are also options for people who want to reaffirm their faith when tragedy strikes. There are the classical cross options, as well as angels and many other symbols. One particularly touching choice is a pair of wings that reminds the wearer of where the loved one is. These jewelry pieces make it possible to feel comfort every time the person wears them. For religious people, they are great items to consider.
For people who want to memorialize a loved one in a personal way, there are lots of ways to do so with jewelry. There are pendants that can be made with a person’s handwriting, or some that feature lockets where mementos can be stored. There is always something for every taste and lots of budget options, as well. With memorial jewelry, a loved one can always be present. Lots of people even choose to give these pieces out during the funeral to members of the family and close friends.
Most funeral homes offer these kinds of jewelry options with which to commemorate the life of a loved one who has passed. From religious options to affirm faith to cremation jewelry that can hold ashes or locks of hair, there is something for everyone.
