As more families choose cremation, it is more important than ever to ensure they understand all of the offerings that help them honor loved ones. You can explain their options for the service, as well as the choices for disposition in your area. In addition, include information about merchandise your firm offers (such as cremation jewelry).
Many families seek out special ways to remember loved ones after our services have been rendered. As cremations become more popular in Texas and around the U.S., choosing cremation jewelry can leave you with a staggering array of choices.
Choosing cremation jewelry means considering necklaces, pendants, lockets, bracelets, rings, beads, and charms. Materials used to make them range from metals such as gold, sterling silver, titanium, copper, pewter, and stainless steel to glass, ceramic, porcelain, crystal…even wood and synthetic gemstones.
Speaking of gemstones, did you know cremation remains could become diamonds? They’re made in a lab from the carbon contained in human ashes and hair. The carbon is extracted at high temperatures, put under intense pressure, and placed in a growth chamber. Over time (up to several months), crystals form and come together to make a unique diamond that is professionally shaped, polished and mounted in a setting.
As you might expect, this is usually the most expensive jewelry option with costs reaching several thousand dollars or more. But as a major diamond company has reminded us for many years, diamonds are forever. Other, more modest cremation jewelry choices start as low as $50. It all depends on the material, complexity and craftsmanship of the item you choose. And it’s all a very personal decision that only you and your family need to agree on.
