Pet cremation jewelry is, simply put, jewelry
that contains some of the cremated remains or some tangible object that belonged
to the deceased pet. Cremation jewelry is catching on as the latest trend in a
line of memorial traditions. They grew out of the older and more traditional
system of preserving cremains in memorial urns. While urns sit in one place and
cannot be carried around, cremation jewelry allows you the freedom to hold your
pet close to you every minute of the day, if you so desire. This is the ideal
way to meet your natural yearning to memorialize and remember a dearly departed
When our beloved Boxer, Daisy, died part of us - the best part - was missing.
It's just so sad that when her pain ended, ours had only begun. Just like when
human members of our family leave us, the demise of a pet can cause pain and
suffering. Many first-time owners find it difficult to assimilate the pain of
losing their pets, as one of our customers explains, 'I am left with an empty

psychologists, having something tangible to hold on to makes the recovery
process easier. This is the significance of photographs, cremation urns and pet

and cat faces are just some of the common examples.
Cremation jewelry may be
crafted in gold, silver, glass or white gold. They are designed to hold cremated
remains, a lock of hair, fur, feathers or whatever is 'cherished'. Anything that helps the
owner feel close to the departed pet can be enclosed - some may just hold a
small picture or engraving. Pet memorial jewelry comes in the form of urn
pendants or lockets that can be worn around the neck or in shapes that can be
carried on a key-ring, worn on a bracelet or even use as a "worry stone".
Once the material and design has been chosen, pet owners can also get their
pieces personalized. Memorial jewelry can be as unique as the pet it
