Ash Keepsake Cremation Pendants to have Your Loved One Close to Your Heart
Losing a loved one is perhaps, if not, one of the most difficult situations everyone will have to face. As Marlo Thomas once said, "I think loss of loved ones is the hardest blow in life". Whether the passing was expected or not, no one can ever truly be prepared for the emotional turmoil that grips us all after such a life-shaking event. After a loss, a person will, of course, go through a period of mourning, but many feel a sudden sadness that comes along with the happy memories shared, even years after the loved one has passed. Keepsake pendants offer a way to hold a small part or remembrance of a lost family member or friend, not only during the time of mourning, but many, many years later as well.
These beautiful pieces of jewelry are designed to hold and protect a small part of cremation ashes, or anything that is small enough to fit through the opening. Some families, who either did not have their loved one cremated, or are not comfortable separating the ashes, even place dried, crushed ceremonial flowers, earth from the gravesite, or even a small lock of hair in the pendants. We have even had individuals place different memorabilia in the pendants, not to memorialize the passing of a loved one, but to celebrate a special event, such as a wedding or graduation They can even be used to commemorate religious events such as baptisms, confirmations, christenings, and even communions. These elegant charms feature both intricate and simple designs, and are perfect for everyday as well as formal wear. They are crafted from different types of metals, ranging from stainless steel, to 14k gold. Regardless of the use, these elegant pieces will create remarkable tributes of those unforgettable people or moments in life.
While losing a loved one is indeed a heartbreaking event, we must not concentrate on the harder times suffered, but on the happier times shared with those individuals; however, sometimes that can be difficult to do. With a beautiful keepsake pendant, one can create an individual remembrance that is discreet enough to wear in any occasion, and will bring comfort and happy memories at any time they are needed.
"My sister's two little girls (7 & 11 years old) died in a house fire in New Zealand in January & my sister had been looking for a suitable urn but couldn't find one in NZ. My sister came & visited me in Canada & I found it on the Internet & she loved it at first sight but when it arrived & we unpacked it, it made us both cry. My sister took it back to NZ with her & is having both girls ashes put into the angel. We love the angel !" Christine Kemp
