The Benefits Of Memorial Jewelry as Keepsakes

There are many ways to honor loved ones who've passed. One idea is to pass down their memory to future generations. There are many creative ways to do this, from photo albums, and home videos, to sharing stories during the holidays.

You may also want to consider creating a unique keepsake containing cremation ashes. This keepsake can be handed down from generation to generation, keeping the person's memory alive. You could also add the cremation keepsake to a larger collection of memories, like media, artwork, and vintage personal belongings.

Small keepsakes are also convenient.

As an alternative to keeping an urn on a shelf, you can easily store a memorial ring in a drawer, jewelry box, or small keepsake box. This way, you don't have to display ashes prominently; yet, but still enjoy the option of keeping them in your home.  

How to Choose Cremation Rings For Ashes

Are you thinking about buying memorial rings?

Now is a great time to discuss your options with a local funeral service that offers memorial keepsakes. They can lead you through the process, helping you select the perfect styles and storage boxes. You may want to incorporate the rings themselves into the memorial service, handing them out to immediate family members.

There are many things to consider when purchasing cremation rings.

Questions to ask your local funeral home include:

  • What are the various types of ring styles offered?
  • Is my loved one's birthstone available?
  • Which metals do the rings come in?
  • What keepsake boxes are available?
  • How does the cremation ring process work?
  • Can you open the rings?

You may also want to ask how long the wait is for cremation rings, including the total price for both cremation and keepsakes.

If you plan on scattering ashes, ask if you could provide rings as keepsakes afterward. Before making a final decision, you may want to talk to more family members to see how they feel about memorial jewelry as an alternative to urns.
