Cremation Glass Signet Ring vs Memorial Ring: How to Choose

Cremation Glass Signet Ring vs Memorial Ring: How to Choose

Kenny Scott | Dec 15, 2016 | Cremation Glass Jewellery, Ash to Glass

Are you looking to buy a memorial glass ring to remember a lost loved one?

Memorial glass rings can be a beautiful way of keeping a loved one close to you – it’s essentially means eternalising the memory of someone special, to bring comfort even on the darkest days.

I’ve worked with glass and cremation glass jewellery for over 20 years, and this is now without a doubt the biggest reason my customers first hear about me. In fact, memorial glass rings are the most popular pieces I sell.

However, a lot of my customers also find themselves unsure of how to pick their cremation glass ring – which colour should they go for? What about the type of metal? And then, of course, there’s the style.

Below, I thought I’d help you out by comparing two of my most popular styles of cremation glass ring, so you can get a better idea of which option would best suit you.


Why choose a handcrafted memorial glass signet ring?

Signet rings are so distinctive. Chunkier than the usual elegant-style rings, this contemporary design is perfect if you prefer something a little different. They also happen to be particularly popular with my male customers, but I like to stress this unisex style can be worn by anyone.

It’s customary – but not essential – to have a signet ring engraved (dating back to the ancient Roman era), and the chunkier style can give you some great options of where to have your engraving.

Memorial glass signet rings can usually be bought in gold, sterling silver or white gold, and I personally use the same traditional glassmaking techniques I use for all of my cremation glass products. Not to mention, these rings are usually custom-made for a precise fit on your finger.


Why choose a handcrafted memorial glass ring?

Classic-style memorial glass rings are the simple, more elegant option – and one of my most popular products. You can be sure this style will never go out of fashion, and just like signet rings, will truly last the test of time.

Although there’s less surface space for engraving, there is still the option to have a message engraved on your memorial glass ring, with a full choice of silver, white gold or gold options available.

You can read more about the creation process for my memorial glass rings in my blog post: ‘Why Glass Rings are the Most Popular Cremation Jewellery for Ashes’.

These rings can be custom made to fit any size, so you can be confident of the best fit for your finger.


Advice before buying your memorial glass ring

Whichever type of ring you choose for yourself or as a gift for a loved one, you should always take your time deciding on where to buy. It’s so important to ensure you’re 100% happy and confident in a company before sending off ashes, so always try to speak to someone over the phone, first.
