Are you torn between a decorative urn, or cremation glass jewellery to remember a loved one?
If so, I’d like to say firstly that I’m so sorry for your loss. Coming to terms with grief is something everyone deals with in their own way, and it can take months or even years to begin thinking of what to do with the ashes of someone who meant a lot in your life.
The good news is that there are simply so many options with regards to cremation ashes these days, but if you don’t like the idea of letting your loved one’s ashes go, a decorative urn is one of the most popular choices, and means you can display your loved one’s ashes in your home, or keep them somewhere safe.
Another increasingly popular choice is cremation, or memorial glass jewellery, which gives the owner something beautiful to hold onto and keep close to them wherever they go. I find it brings my clients so much comfort, even on difficult days.
Below, I’m going to tell you why you don’t have to choose just one.
The best of both worlds
An urn is safe in your home; you can’t lose it, and you can feel at ease in the knowledge that your loved one is probably watching over the house whilst you’re not there. It’s a nice feeling.
However, you can’t exactly take an urn with you on your travels – it’d be over your 15 kilos to start with! That’s why cremation jewellery is so appealing to many of my clients, and gives them the best of both worlds.
You see, since you only need less than a teaspoonful of your loved one’s ashes to make a beautiful piece of jewellery you can touch, hold and take with you wherever you go, many of my clients find they can keep an urn whilst still having that extra little something to give them strength.
For example, one of my clients contacted me last week to have a beautiful ring made using her father’s ashes. She was going to Lanzarote with her sister, and since he had essentially paid for the holiday, she wanted to take him with her – which is why she needed to make sure she’d get the ring back on time.
Luckily, I was able to process her order in time, so now she and her sister can enjoy their holiday knowing they have a piece of him with them.
So many options available
Another wonderful thing about memorial jewellery is that there are so many different things you can have made – you may even be able to choose an entirely custom-made piece that reflects you or your loved one’s personality.
You may opt for a gorgeous glass ring (or signet ring), a beautiful pendant, stunning cufflinks, or striking yet versatile charm beads (to fit Pandora bracelets). As for the type of metal, most places will let you choose from sterling silver, gold or white gold.
Some companies also offer other memorial glass products such as glass hearts, paperweights, glass figurines, or amazing art sculptures if you decide that you’d rather not have something you can wear.
Do your homework
If you think cremation jewellery could be an option for you, the best place to start looking is the internet. A quick Google search for ‘memorial glass jewellery’ or ‘cremation glass jewellery’ will present a number of UK companies offering these services, and you may want to have a browse to see which products you like best.
However, bear in mind some of the things you should be looking out for when buying memorial jewellery. I always tell people to call up their chosen company and taking the time to speak to someone before placing an order, so they can be sure they feel 100% confident before sending ashes away.
TIP: Here are just some of the questions you should be asking a cremation jewellery company.
By now you should have a better idea of why cremation glass jewellery could allow you to not only keep your loved one with you at all times, but also have the rest of their ashes stored safely in a decorative urn.
There are so many options available now, and perhaps I’ve even opened your mind to a new world of possibilities – I hope that you’ll find comfort in whichever one you choose.
