Your cat is special to you—celebrate their impact on your life with a beautiful reminder.
Cats are special members of the family who bring us love, companionship, and laughs. These furry friends can see us through decades of our lives, and there is simply no overestimating their importance to us. Unfortunately, these beloved members of our family are only with us for a limited time, and their absence can leave us feeling lost and sad. In honor of International Cat Day on August 8th, we wanted to share a way for cat parents to keep their loved ones with them, even after their passing.

How Do You Honor a Passed Pet?
Honoring a passed pet is a deeply personal experience. It is something that can be very difficult, even if we know that the day is coming. Though our furry friends may move on, we are often left missing them for the rest of our lives. Honoring them can help us to cope with the loss and give us a productive way to process our emotions. We all honor our lost pets differently, so it is important for you to choose a way to honor them that feels best to you.
The memories that we share with our pets are something that we will keep for the rest of our lives. Honoring them by remembering them is one of the best things that we can do. Whether that means just taking the time to share stories or fond memories, or even taking a moment to write down some of those special moments so we can refer to them, remembering our pets is always a good way to honor their impacts on our lives.
There are many actions that you can take to honor your pet. You might choose to hold a private service, develop a personal ritual, or even partake in something that reminds you of them. When we allow ourselves to carry out actions that remind us of our pets, we keep them with us in a very special way. Even if it just means thinking of them when you look at something that they used to love, you can honor your pet and keep their memory with you.
Keepsakes are a wonderful and tangible way to honor our pets. They allow us to designate something very special that will always remind us of them. The keepsakes that we choose can vary. For one pet parent, it might be keepsake jewelry. For another, it might be a tattoo. Some pet parents choose to keep their favorite toy—or even a collar. What matters is choosing something that reminds you of them and allows you to reflect on all the special times that you shared together.
Can Pet Ashes Be Kept at Home?
We are living in an age where honoring a lost pet has never been easier simply because we have so many options. Many pet parents are choosing to have their pets cremated and keeping their ashes, just like they would with any other member of their family. These ashes can be kept at home in an urn, or you might choose to put their ashes in a piece of keepsake jewelry instead. It is all about what feels comfortable for you.
Personalized Cremation Jewelry—Is it Right for You?
Personalized cremation jewelry is becoming more popular to honor lost pets and loved ones. This jewelry is a way for you to keep your loved one close in a very special and unique way, giving you the opportunity to celebrate the life that they lived with a memorable keepsake.
As long as you think that cremation jewelry will help you to celebrate the life of your lost loved one, it is absolutely a good fit. This is about giving you the opportunity to love and remember someone very important to you, whether they are a relative or walked the earth on paws. If you believe that cremation jewelry will help you to keep your loved one close, it is a good decision to make.
Everything You Need to Know About Keepsake Jewelry
Keepsake jewelry might be becoming more normalized, but that doesn’t mean that you fully understand it. The truth is that unless you have had a reason to investigate this special kind of jewelry, you might not have any idea how it works or what it really means. Let’s break down what keepsake jewelry is—and what makes it so special.
What is Keepsake Jewelry?
Keepsake jewelry is considered a wearable memorial tribute, though you don’t have to wear it at all if you don’t want to. With this type of jewelry, you can place a small portion of your loved one’s ashes inside. This gives you the ability to keep it with you wherever you go. Whether you choose to wear it, or you prefer to simply stow it somewhere special, it is about giving you a personal way to honor your loved one.
What Are Cremation Necklaces Called?
Cremation necklaces go by many different names. Some people simply refer to them as cremation necklaces, while others prefer terms like “keepsake jewelry” or “memorial jewelry.” At the end of the day, these necklaces go by many different names, but they all still serve the same purpose—helping you to honor your beloved.
Why Do People Use Keepsake Jewelry to Hold Ashes?
The way that you honor your lost loved one’s ashes is a deeply personal decision, and everyone has different opinions on what they feel is and is not right for them. This is to be expected, and it is completely understandable. We all mourn differently, and this is one way that people do it.
Keepsake jewelry is used to hold ashes because it gives people a way to honor a lost loved one in a very special way. While urns can be beautiful, they must be stored somewhere—and that means that the people who loved that person or pet can only visit them sometimes.
With keepsake jewelry, you gain the ability to keep that special someone with you no matter where you go. Something that makes this beautiful is that it can be shared with multiple people, ensuring that everyone who held that special individual close can keep them nearby after their passing.
How Do Necklaces with Ashes Work?
When using keepsake jewelry, it is important to understand how it works. Fortunately, most keepsake jewelry is very simple to use—at least on the technical side. Our keepsake jewelry comes with the tools that you need and dedicated instructions to ensure that putting your loved one’s ashes in the necklace is a quick and simple process.
As you add your loved one’s ashes to the necklace, it is important to remember that the process might be difficult emotionally. If you feel like it might be too difficult for you, it can help to have a loved one help you or stay by your side throughout the process.
Caring for Personalized Cremation Jewelry
Personalized cremation jewelry is very special, so it is only natural that you will want to take care of it. Caring for your jewelry can help you to ensure that your special memorial piece stays safe for years to come.
Caring for your jewelry comes down to general maintenance and protection. For maintenance, cremation jewelry should never be washed, only wiped with a soft cloth to protect and preserve it. If you need to do any deep cleaning, a q-tip and an appropriate cleaner can be used with care.
Protection should be your biggest concern while caring for your jewelry. You want to only wear your necklace when it will be safe. If you plan to participate in rigorous exercise or get wet, the necklace should be stowed away safely.
Choosing Jewelry That is Right for You
We all have our own preferences when honoring a loved one. When you choose your jewelry, you have two considerations—what is appropriate for you and what is appropriate for your loved one.
Some people choose their jewelry based on their own personal preferences, and this is completely fine. You can pick a piece of jewelry that you will cherish and feel comfortable wearing.
On the other hand, it is also common to pick something that speaks to the individual instead. You might pick something that they would have liked or simply that reminds you of them. This can be a beautiful way to keep them with you.
Honoring Your Pet with Keepsake Jewelry
More pet parents are turning to keepsake jewelry to honor their lost pets. It is an opportunity to cherish and love them in the years that you live without them. Having jewelry with your pet’s ashes can help you to process your mourning period, giving you a token to remember them by.
Do I Have to Put Ashes in Keepsake Jewelry?
It is a common misconception that all keepsake jewelry must hold ashes. This really isn’t the case. Some pet parents choose to put a piece of their pet’s fur inside of the jewelry instead of their ashes, while others put a small quote or note inside instead. It is not about what you put in the jewelry. It is about keeping their memory with you in a special way. No matter what you choose to do, you are making the right choice. It is all about your comfort and what feels right.
