Several factors contribute to cremation jewelry's wide-ranging appeal, including the almost endless selection of designs and materials that offer something for any personal taste. And some people choose cremation jewelry because it is so affordable; indeed, some simple ash pendants made from glass, wood, or man-made materials can be purchased for as little as $50.
Then there are those who want nothing less than the best and who have a budget to support their tastes. When cremation jewelry is crafted by skilled artisans using only the finest materials and workmanship that meets the highest standards of excellence, the final product - a distinctive urn pendant - is sure to appeal to people with such discriminating tastes.
Gem Stone Urn Jewelry Made from Precious Metals:
Fine cremation jewelry is made from precious metals, such as sterling silver or white or yellow 14 karat gold. Gem stones add another dimension of sparkle and brilliance. Depending on the type of stone used and its weight, a cremation pendant encrusted with gem stones can cost from several hundred to thousands of dollars.
The Premier Series is a line of fine cremation jewelry that includes ash pendants and urn bracelets made from gold and sterling silver in traditional and modern designs. The quality of these cremation keepsakes is comparable to merchandise you'll find in fine jewelry stores.
Fine Urn Jewelry in Classic and Innovative Designs:
Luxury quality cremation jewelry offers a wide array of design choices, from classic to innovative. Religious themes are very popular in memorial jewelry, with widely recognized symbols such as angels, crosses, doves, and Stars of David. There is ash pendants designed in nature themes for outdoor lovers, and there are cremation keepsakes in the shape of a teardrop or heart that tell a sad story of loss. One unique cremation necklace crafted in the shape of a remembrance ribbon is set with a pink gem stone to commemorate the life of a woman who died of breast cancer.
Fine Cremation Jewelry Requires Special Care:
Your selection of fine cremation jewelry can serve as a family heirloom for generations to come with just a little TLC. Every time before you wear your cremation jewelry, inspect the chain and the urn pendant for damage. If you see a problem, don't wear the jewelry until you have it checked by a local jeweler and repaired if necessary.
Always remember to apply hairspray, fragrances, lotions, or makeup BEFORE you put on your cremation jewelry. After wearing, you can use a micro fiber jeweler's cloth or a soft cotton cloth to clean your fine memorial jewelry. (Never use a paper towel or any material that might leave scratches.) Finally, as with any fine silver or gold jewelry, it's important to store your cremation necklace alone, in a protective covering, to avoid contact with other jewelry pieces, which can cause the gold or silver to become scratched.
