The Cross that Holds Ashes

It can be hard for people who are very sad to do things, even things they want to do, especially right after another person dies. This could mean getting memory jewellery or other things to keep. If you were close to the person who died, this could be a nice gift to give (on top of the other help that is needed). It’s possible for someone mourning to want or need a memorial piece of jewellery but just can’t bring themselves to order it.

It can be harder to get memorial jewellery than just ordering it online. Engravings, fingerprints, and ashes may need to be taken care of. Even making one piece of memorial jewellery can help someone who is mourning; once the jewellery is given to them, you will have done something that can actively comfort them.

It is very kind of you to make tribute jewellery for the family and friends of your loved one who has died. Giving it shows that you understand how much the person who died meant to you. In times of loss, it’s hard to find comfort, but memorial jewellery can help.

What is Jewellery that Holds Ashes?

Jewellery that holds ashes, also known as cremation or memorial jewellery, is a specially designed piece containing a small compartment to securely hold a portion of your loved one’s cremated remains. This form of commemorative jewellery lets you keep a tangible reminder of the person you’ve lost and cherish their memory discreetly, elegantly, and personally.

How Much Ash Does Cremation Jewellery Hold?

The amount of ashes that cremation jewellery can hold depends on its size and design. On average, a standard piece of jewelry that holds ashes will contain a small amount of remains, equivalent to about a pinch or less. This volume is enough to create a symbolic and sentimental connection to your loved one while still allowing room for other family members to share in the commemoration.

How to Add Ashes into Jewellery

Adding ashes to your cremation jewellery is simple, requiring only a few basic steps. First, select a piece of jewellery that appeals to you and suits your style. Each piece comes with a small funnel and instructions to guide you through the process.

  1. Ensure that the jewellery is clean and free of any residue.
  2. Carefully unscrew or remove the designated compartment (often a small screw or a threaded opening).
  3. Place the funnel into the opening of the jewellery.
  4. Using a small spoon or similar tool, gently transfer some ashes into the funnel, allowing them to fill the compartment.
  5. Once the compartment is filled, carefully remove the funnel and clean any excess ashes from the opening.
  6. Reseal the compartment by screwing or snapping it back into place, ensuring a tight and secure closure.
  7. It is important to handle the ashes with care and respect throughout the process and to store any unused ashes in a safe and secure location.
