Are cremation diamonds real?

It is widely disputed that cremation diamonds can be made from your loved ones’ ashes. Even though memorial diamonds do exist and are artificially made, they tend to only incorporate a very small proportion of human hair or ashes and are primarily made of carbon. Manufacturing methods vary depending on the company creating the diamond – and so does the cost. If you are interested in turning ashes into a diamond to use as memorial jewellery, we’d recommend being incredibly careful when researching a company to do so as cremation diamond existence is still contested by many jewellery experts.

What is the best jewellery for ashes?

Cremation jewellery can be made from a variety of precious metals and in a variety of styles. It is possible to have ashes put into cremation rings, cremation necklaces, cremation bracelets and even cremation earrings. There is also a variety of men’s’ cremation jewellery, including men’s cremation rings and men’s cremation necklaces.

How is cremation jewellery made?

Cremation jewellery is made by incorporating a small part of your loved one’s ashes either into a sealed pocket or space within the jewellery or bead, into the precious metal itself or transformed into stones such as artificial diamonds. However, the most popular memorial jewellery available is made with small containers that can be filled yourself. We offer a beautiful collection of cremation jewellery with different style beads and containers to suit your tastes, including hearts, stars, crosses and clovers.

Can jewellery be used for keeping ashes in?

Cremation jewellery is a lovely way to always keep a beloved one close to you and is a loving tribute to the one you’ve lost. Although memorial jewellery can be used for keeping ashes in, they do only hold a very small portion of your loved one’s ashes. Cremation jewellery is used as a memorial keepsake to remember your loved one and to store the rest of their ashes you would need to use an urn or a casket.

How do urn necklaces and urn rings work?

Urn necklaces and urn rings are items of cremation jewellery and a way to tribute your loved one by storing a small portion of their ashes within a container or part of the ring or necklace. They are designed as memorial keepsakes to keep part of that person close to you and on your person even after they have passed. We offer a beautiful collection of urn necklaces and rings to remember your loved one.
