Can You Put Ashes in a Necklace? Keeping Loved Ones Close in a Touching Tribute

In the face of loss, the desire to keep our loved ones close can feel overwhelming. While traditional urns offer a place of remembrance, sometimes we crave a more personal and tangible way to carry their memory with us. This is where the question arises: can you put ashes in a necklace?

The answer is a resounding yes! Ash necklaces, also known as cremation jewelry or memorial pendants, offer a beautiful and discreet way to keep a cherished part of your loved one near your heart.

Here's why ash necklaces are becoming increasingly popular:

    • A constant reminder: Unlike traditional urns, which often stay on display shelves, ash necklaces can be worn every day, keeping your loved one close no matter where you go. The physical sensation of the pendant against your skin can offer a powerful sense of comfort and connection.
    • Discreet and meaningful: You can choose to wear your ash necklace privately, close to your heart, or share it with the world as a meaningful conversation starter. It's a subtle yet powerful way to honor your loved one's memory.
    • Personalisation options: Ash necklaces come in a wide variety of styles and materials, allowing you to choose something that reflects your loved one's personality or your shared bond. Whether you prefer classic silver, vibrant glass, or resin, there's a necklace to tell your unique story.

Beyond Loss, Carrying Memories:

While ash necklaces are often associated with grief, they can also be a way to celebrate life and hold onto cherished memories. You can fill them with a pinch of ashes from a special place you shared with a loved one, a lock of hair from a beloved pet, or even a tiny vial of soil from a meaningful garden. They become portable talismans of joy, carrying snippets of happiness close to your heart.

Finding the Perfect Ash Necklace:

With so many stunning options available, choosing the right ash necklace can feel overwhelming. Here are a few tips to guide you:

    • Consider the weight and comfort: You'll be wearing this necklace every day, so choose something that feels comfortable and sits well against your skin.
    • Think about the closure mechanism: Some necklaces have screw-on closures for added security, while others use magnets or clasps. Choose what you find easiest to manage.
    • Match the style to your personality: Do you prefer something simple and elegant, or something more ornate and eye-catching? Choose a necklace that reflects your personal taste and connects with your loved one's spirit.
    • Inscriptions: Most pieces, but not all allow you to have a memorial  inscription. On some pendants it might alos be possible to get a copy of their handwriting.  

Remember, there's no right or wrong way to wear an ash necklace. It's a personal journey of remembrance and connection. Choose what feels right for you and trust that it will be a beautiful and meaningful way to keep your loved one close.
