What is cremation jewelry?

Cremation jewelry is a special type of memorial jewelry which includes a small amount of the cremated remains (ashes) of the deceased. Cremation jewelry can be of special significance to the family of the deceased, since each family member gets to retain a tiny part of their loved one’s ashes, preserved as a wearable piece of art.

Cremation jewelry includes any jewelry that either is made from the ashes, or acts as a holder to contain a small amount of cremated remains. “Cremation urn jewelry” refers to a tiny hollow vessel or decorative container that holds a bit of the ashes and can be worn like regular jewelry. Using a small funnel, the miniature container is filled with the ashes and then sealed off at the top.
