Losing a loved one is always difficult as you can no longer hug them hello or tell them how your day went. But with cremation jewelry, you can keep them close to the heart and share your day with them. There are some things you do want to think about when getting cremation jewelry.
The first is material. You can find silver jewelry with cremation ashes baked in, silver jewelry with cremains in the resin, glass, resin, wood with resin and silver keepsake urns. The key thing here is to keep in mind is how often you'll be wearing the jewelry and under what conditions.
For example, if you're occasionally wearing a ring to dinner and then taking it off, a resin based ring would be fine; however if you're working with tools and banging up your hands then a cremains infused silver ring would be the best option.
With pendants, you need to keep in mind are you spending a lot of time in the sun or going swimming as glass will hold up best in these conditions. In general, you never want to wear any cremation jewelry in salt water, it's bad for the silver, and for our resin rings with cremation ash also quite corrosive.
Generally, you want to pick a style that you like and that you already wear a lot; by extension you'll be picking something you know you'll be OK wearing without dinging, tangling or loosing since you're already used to wearing it. If you lean toward a particular color palette be sure to get a complimentary color so you can use your jewelry in as many outfits as possible.
