You cared deeply for your lost loved one, and obviously want to memorialize him or her in a respectful but special way that is just as unique as he or she was. Some funeral homes in Orange Park, FL offer a service that can help you do just that: memorial jewelry.
What is memorial jewelry? Memorial jewelry can come in many forms, from necklaces and rings to lockets, pendants, and bracelets, but every form is a special reminder of the deceased.
Most memorial jewelry is made through a similar process. Once a body is cremated, the family sends the remains to a jeweler. The remains, consisting of minerals like calcium phosphates, are combined with molten glass gold, silver, platinum, or other materials using special encasement methods to mold the remains and the metals together. The goal is this molding is to display and protect the cremated remains.
Since every person’s chemical makeup is slightly different, every piece of memorial jewelry will have a slightly different chemical reaction, resulting in different colors, shapes, and patterns. In other words, every piece of memorial jewelry will be just as unique as the person it’s made from. Families can also choose to include items like hair or dried flowers in the jewelry piece for even more uniqueness.
If you’re considering memorial jewelry for your lost loved one, there are a few things you should keep in mind:
Memorial jewelry is just one of the many options you have to memorialize a lost loved one after a cremation. If memorial jewelry isn’t for you, you can always choose a more traditional method like a displaying the remains in a cremation urn, scattering them, burying them, or putting up a headstone.
