What is memorial jewelry?

Memorial jewelry, also known as funeral, keepsake, or remembrance jewelry, is a deeply personal type of jewelry that honors the deceased and provides the wearer with a tangible remembrance of their loved one that can be kept close at all times. By having this reminder so close at hand, memorial jewelry can help bring comfort to the bereaved and keep fond and loving memories alive.

Examples of basic memorial jewelry would include an engraved pendant or ring bearing the loved one’s name and dates of birth and death, or a locket which might contain a small token such as a lock of hair from the deceased.
