How Does it Feel to Hold Cremation Jewellery for the First Time?

Are you considering getting your loved ones’ ashes made into memorial glass jewellery?

If so, you’ve probably put a lot of thought into whether it’s something you really want to do. You may even have wondered if you’re ready to take that next step.

There’s a lot of fear that can come from sending your loved ones’ ashes away to be made into jewellery or art, which is why I always advise people to ensure they’re completely confident in the company they choose before buying cremation jewellery online.

However, often that fear is worth it when they come to hold their special piece of memorial glass for the first time. Below, I’m going to try and give you a better idea of how that feels, through the voice of some of my own customers.

How it feels to receive memorial jewellery for the first time

Cremation glass jewellery is such a personal, individual thing. I always feel a bit sad when I receiving ashes, but I also take a lot of pride in the fact that my work is going to bring someone a great deal of comfort, and make them smile again.

Like Tori Tong, who ordered a piece of jewellery to remember her grandmother. She said: “The pink is beautiful and the pattern in the glass is stunning. I’m honestly over the moon! Now I can always have a little piece of her forever and I will treasure it for the rest of my life.” 

And it’s comments like Sarah Goldie’s that make what I do completely worthwhile. She said (via Facebook): “I ordered an orange charm and I couldn’t be any happier with it, the colour is stunning and beautiful just like my Gran was, I would highly recommend this service to anyone who wants to keep their loved ones close.”

Memorial glass jewellery can also make an extremely thoughtful and personal gift for a partner or family member. Like the art sculpture Billy Barabich recently ordered: “I ordered the ‘Lest We Forget’ glass sculpture for my partner and I couldn’t be happier with it. It’s beautiful, and it means so much to us that we have Willie’s ashes in such a beautiful, and meaningful piece.”

Zoë Harding also ordered a piece of jewellery for her mother. She commented: “We ordered a pair earrings for our Mum and they are absolutely gorgeous. Our mum was overwhelmed by them and now has our grandparents with her all the time.”
