Memorial/Cremation Jewellery

Cremation or memorial jewellery is a wonderful way to commemorate a loved one and to keep them close to your heart no matter where you go. Every piece of Photogem jewellery can be set with your loved ones ashes instead of a photograph. The locket necklace and locket cufflinks allow for a photograph and ashes to be set within the piece at an additional charge. Whilst jewellery for your loved ones ashes does not replace the feeling of loss, cremation jewellery can help to bring comfort to grieving families and friends in a tangible way. Love is forever in our hearts. Whether we lose a close family member, loyal friend or beloved pet, the emotional impact of the loss is always difficult and a memorial Photogem can provide much comfort and solace to the wearer.

Please contact me directly on anne@photogem.co.uk if you would like me to create a memorial photogem for you.  

 

 

History of Memorial 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 ashes 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.
