From the Ashes: Memorial Gems and Crystals

For those of us who want to scatter the remains, but want to still keep some back as a memento of those we’ve lost, there are other options other than the traditional urn. While thumbprint jewelry and other memorial jewelry exist, for those who want something a little more subtle, there are memorial gems and crystals. This unique jewelry allows you to create a beautiful memorial of your loved one. This style of cremation jewelry will instantly become an heirloom for generations to come.

This option is becoming more and more popular among memorial options by creating a one of a kind memorial of the loved one who has passed. Cremation gems are lab grown and include the ashes in the process. All sorts of crystals and gemstones can be made this way, including diamonds! While a more expensive option, there is no doubt that it is an extremely unique option to memorialize someone. Additionally, creating a cremation diamond is a long process and can take upwards to a year to create. Unlike memorial diamonds, the crystals are made by infusing a combination of glass with the ashes, and while it makes a crystal that is softer than diamond, they do normally hold up extremely well, thus letting the memorial jewelry become an heirloom if you so choose. When working with a funeral director who offers this service, each piece is created by hand and is given a personal touch with your specifications in mind.

Whether you go with a piece of cremation jewelry to have a subtle memorial option for your loved one or you go with the more traditional memorial urn or scattering, Memorial Gallery is honored to serve your family.
