You can memorialize your beloved pet by opting for a charming pet urn, cremation jewelry, garden stepping stone, keepsake rock, and so on. Of all these items, memorial jewelry is the most attractive and convenient.
It allows you to keep a portion of your pet’s cremated remains with you as a source of comfort instead of placing the ashes somewhere inside or outside the house where it is likely to be neglected and forgotten over a period of time.
Thus, you can hold on to precious memories of your dear cat, dog, rabbit, rodent, Guinea pig, bird, ferret, hamster, horse, etc. in a piece of memorial jewelry such as a pendant, locket, ring, bracelet, etc.
You can also personalize the jewelry by getting your pet’s name engraved on it. Some jewelry items can even be laser etched with an adorable photograph of your furry companion or your pet’s paw prints.
More often than not, cremation jewelry is designed to hold up to half or one teaspoon of the cremated remains. Besides, you can store a lock of fur, or some other small item belonging to your pet.
Interestingly, during earlier times, people also used to keep the deceased’s nail clippings, or drops of tears, even blood, in the memorial jewelry.
You can opt for pet remembrance jewelry even if you have buried your pet. In this case, you can store a little earth from the gravesite instead of the cremated ashes. This, however, may not be possible if you are interested in an ash pendant.
Amazing ash pendants are created using a small amount of the deceased’s ashes or locks of hair. They are molten in multiple strips of hand-blown glass to get a unique memory keepsake.
These pendants are usually made of glass; nevertheless, they can be made of precious metals as well. They are available in a variety of shapes and designs like beautiful natural scene and “teardrop”.
Plus, an ash pendant locket can feature a nice picture of your pet. When placing an order for this urn, you would be mailed a kit in which you would be required to send a small amount of your pet’s ashes to the glass artist.
Furthermore, the animal’s cremated remains can also be converted into crystals or diamonds. They are made from the carbon extracted from the ashes of your dear companion. This is a unique way to honor your beloved pet forever.
When looking for other sorts of pet cremation jewelry, it is best to go for an item that is permanently sealed after storing the ashes inside it.
Besides, you can get a piece of memorial jewelry having a compartment that can be opened, filled with the cremated remains, and then sealed with an adhesive or screw.
Most companies provide instructions on how to transfer the ashes in the jewelry, and a miniature funnel that can be used for this purpose to avoid spills. If you are not sure whether you can fill it yourself or not then you may request your funeral director to do so.
