Beautiful & Lightweight
Keep loved ones close with this sweet bracelet.
We designed this piece, like all of our keepsake jewelry, to help pawrents and everyday people to celebrate their loved ones. The pain of loss can feel impossible when you first face it, and there is never an easy way to regard that new absence in your life, but we think that tiny gestures like this can make all the difference.
Memorial jewelry allows you the opportunity to keep your loved one close, even if it is just being done symbolically. It gives you something to turn to when you wish that you could just hold that individual close. While nothing can replace a loved one, it is always nice to be able to look at something that reminds you of them when you’re missing them a little more. Think of it as your own private way to mourn during those moments where the world keeps insisting on spinning without you.
As pawrents ourselves, we know the treasured bond that comes with having pups in the home. Unfortunately, as much as we wish they could, we know that they can’t stay with us for our entire journeys through this crazy life. We see personalized cremation jewelry as a way to keep them with us, even when they can’t be there physically.
Why We Chose the Sunflower
In honor of the First Day of Spring, which falls on March 20, 2022, we wanted to add a little spring spirit with our new piece, and we decided that the sunflower was the right flower for the job. This incredible flower has held a treasured place in our hearts through all of human history, and we think that is very special.
Sunflowers in many ways represent the beauty of the sun itself. These flowers offer a vibrant and bold color that lights up any room, which is just one of the reasons that people love them so much. They symbolize warmth, strength, and life.
Sunflowers are resilient flowers that grow large and tall, and we think that there is something special about this. These flowers persevere, even when times are hard. While they might disappear with the season, it is important to remember that they return to us again—sometimes in new forms. We believe that this is the perfect representation of the passing of a loved one. Even when they are gone, they can come back to us in little memories and brighten the room.
What You Need to Know About Keepsake Jewelry
More people are choosing keepsake jewelry to hold ashes because of just how personal it is. Sometimes, you want a personal and discreet way to keep them with you, and memorial jewelry offers you exactly that. It is a symbolic gesture that can help you to heal—even when it feels like you never will.
What is Memorial Keepsake Jewelry
When you lose someone that you love, you have to find a way to safely preserve a memory of your loved one that feels right. For some, this is burial. For others, it is cremation. Now, cremation comes with some new opportunities.
Urns are a wonderful way to keep a loved one in the home, but that doesn’t mean that they are always the best option. With an urn, people can find that their loved one is stuck in one place—and with one person. Keepsake jewelry offers a new way for you to share the ashes of a loved one with anyone who cherished them like you do.
With keepsake jewelry, you have the opportunity to carry a small portion of your loved one’s ashes with you anywhere that you go. Designed to be subtle and discreet, you can easily cherish the loved one that you miss without it being too obvious if you don’t want to talk about it.
Why Do People Wear Keepsake Jewelry
People wear keepsake jewelry for different reasons. First, there is the obvious reason, which is that it provides a way to mourn and remember just how wonderful your loved one was. It’s a gesture, a token that you can keep close and turn to when you need it.
Some people also wear keepsake jewelry as a way of giving themselves strength. It is hard to understand until you face it yourself, but when you lose a loved one, you will find that some days are harder than others. It can be so difficult to lose someone that you love, and keepsake jewelry gives you a way to turn to them quietly. You can look at your jewelry and think about happy memories—or what they would have wanted for you. Little things really can have a big impact.
Do You Have to Put Ashes in Memorial Jewelry
Memorial jewelry is often designed to hold ashes, but that doesn’t mean that you have to use them in that capacity. Some people purchase memorial jewelry simply because they like a specific design, and there is nothing wrong with that. Though it can feel like it would be odd to not use it for its intended purpose, you can use it any way that you like.
Even people in mourning sometimes choose not to put ashes in their jewelry. For some people, it can feel a little too hard to keep the loved one that close, but they still want something that can serve as a reminder of the loved one. This jewelry can easily be used as a symbol instead as well, and that is a perfect way to use it too. Sometimes, you just want a little reminder. This kind of jewelry can offer that.
How to Use Keepsake Jewelry
Using keepsake jewelry is surprisingly simple, though it can seem a little intimidating at first. Every piece of keepsake jewelry that we offer comes with a simple kit that makes it easy for you to add the ashes to the jewelry piece if that is what you want to do.
Adding the ashes just involves using a small funnel and a little bit of care, and it is something that almost anyone can do. The process itself can feel difficult to do emotionally, and that is where you will find your biggest struggle. We suggest having support while you do it if that feels right for you. Remember to allow yourself to grieve in your own way, and don’t hesitate to ask someone close to you for help if you need the additional support.
Caring for Keepsake Jewelry
Given how important keepsake jewelry is, we shouldn’t be surprised that it should be handled with care. There are a few things that you will want to keep in mind with your keepsake jewelry to ensure that it stays safe and in good shape.
Cleaning keepsake jewelry should always be done with a soft cloth and no chemicals. Most keepsake jewelry can simply be rubbed down to restore its original shine. Regularly doing this can help you to avoid buildup or other concerns.
Storing your keepsake jewelry is something that should be done with exceptional care. You want to keep your jewelry as safe as possible, after all. When you are not wearing your jewelry, it is very important to store it somewhere safe. The jewelry should be kept in a space that is dry, clean, and out of reach from children and pets to ensure it stays safe.
Wearing your keepsake jewelry is also something that should be done with care. Given the importance of this jewelry, you want to be more careful with it than you normally would. Avoid wearing it during physical activities or in instances where it could become physically exposed to dangerous materials. Additionally, you should avoid wearing it when you will be exposed to moisture or abrasive chemicals.
How to Celebrate Loved Ones
Loss is very difficult, and it can feel very heavy. When you first lose a loved one, you won’t know what to do. It is natural to cry or to even feel nothing at all. Processing this kind of loss takes time, and it is important to be patient with yourself during this time. Be gentle, like the loved one would have wanted.
You might not find yourself feeling like celebrating at all when a loved one is gone, but celebrating a loved one is different entirely. It means remembering the joy and value that the individual brought, recalling memories, and providing a space for you to reflect on how many wonderful moments you were able to joy because of them. There are a few ways to keep loved ones close while you mourn your loss.

This bracelet is the perfect size and a wonderful gift.
Keepsake jewelry is becoming one of the more popular ways to keep loved ones close. People prefer them because they offer a discreet and approachable way to keep that special individual near you in a way that won’t necessarily call attention to it.
Mourning is hard, and sometimes you just don’t want to talk about it. This kind of jewelry can offer a great middle ground. We offer different kinds of jewelry, including necklaces and bracelets—but there are other options as well. Broaches, cufflinks, and other items can be turned into keepsake jewelry too.
Items of Sentimental Value
Sometimes the best way to mourn is simply to keep something close to that special individual. It might mean keeping an imprint of your beloved pet’s paw or even holding onto an old collar. For human losses, it might mean an old t-shirt or a passed-down piece of jewelry. These small tokens can help us to comfortably navigate our loss, keeping that special someone close.
There are plenty of symbolic ways to mourn the loss of a loved one, and this is wonderful because it truly means that there is something for everyone. Some people choose something permanent, like a memorial tattoo, while others prefer to invest in something like a sticker reflecting the loved one’s appearance or something they treasured. There is no right or wrong way to mourn, so find a way that feels right for you.
Grieving has never been and never will be easy, but there are some steps that we can take to make it a little bit better. We believe in the power of a gesture or thought—and the strength that can be found in them. A loss will always hurt, but we have to remember that the pain that we feel really comes from a place of love and happiness. Whether you choose to mourn in private or prefer to invest in a token of love for your lost loved one, we hope that you will be patient with yourself and remember to reflect on the beautiful memories that your special someone left behind.
