What is Cremation Jewellery?


In 1861, when Queen Victoria's husband Prince Albert died of Typhoid she remained in full mourning for three years, it was during this period when the beginnings of cremation jewellery came about. At the time it was called mourning jewellery, whilst it did not then hold ashes, it gradually progressed into what is known today as cremation jewellery. The progression came about from the need for many to carry a small part of their loved one with them. Cremation jewellery provides the opportunity for just that. Whether a loved one is cremated or buried, cremation jewellery gives you the option of having a small remembrance that you can carry with you at all times. Dried flowers from a funeral arrangement, some sacred ground from the burial site, a small amount of ashes or even a small lock of hair can be gently placed in your cremation jewellery.

Cremation Jewellery is known by a vast variety of names such as urn jewellery, ashes jewellery, funeral jewellery and many more, however they all mean the same thing. Cremation jewellery, which is quite often in the form of a pendant or a ring have a small, discreet chamber located inside which is secured by a discreet screw either on the back, side or bail of the the pendant. Whilst the jewellery can be worn, some choose to display in their home in an elegant display dome or jewellery box. Cremation jewellery looks like any other jewellery so no one will know what is inside unless you tell them!
