When you lose someone
special, there’s often a desire to keep something of theirs close to you. Not
everyone will want to incorporate memorial jewellery into their memories, but
for those who appreciate it, there are quite a few options.
Memorial jewellery provides
you with a tangible way to remember your loved one and to carry them with you
on a daily basis. This type of jewellery usually has something special from the
Types of Memorial Jewellery
There are many different
options for jewellery to help you remember that special person, but here are a
few of the more popular choices.
A locket is a hollow piece of
jewellery with a hinge on it to permit the storage of things inside. You can
add a tiny photograph of the deceased, for example. You can also keep actual
items, such as a lock of hair or a little of their ashes so you can carry them
with you wherever you go. These are usually worn around the neck and can be in
the shape of a heart or oval, as well as many custom shapes. You may also ask
to have the locket engraved or set with stones on the outside.
Some people prefer something
a little different for storing ashes or hair. You may want to purchase a small
vial that you can fill with ashes and carry with you. These can be made of
glass or plastic or even crystal and often come with a stopper and chain so you
can wear it as a necklace.
Resin is a viscous, clear
liquid that hardens up to create a solid piece of jewellery. You may have seen
this in the form of earrings or bracelets before, with flowers trapped inside.
It’s possible to make them from items that belonged to your loved one, as well.
For example, you can add tiny pieces of fabric from their clothes, or swirls of
their hair. Even ashes can be incorporated into the resin jewellery, which may
be entirely made of resin, or turned into a “stone” that is then added to a
setting for a more formal piece of jewellery.
Another option is engraving.
This is cutting into metal just enough to leave an impression and can be a
wonderful way of adding a design to any piece of gold or silver jewellery. To
make it extra special, you can have a quote from your loved one engraved on the
jewellery, or you can engrave their fingerprint or even transfer some of their
handwriting to a bracelet.
