Can you engrave cremation jewelry?
Many styles of cremation jewelry can be engraved with initials or a short phrase. Personalization can make the piece more meaningful.
How do I fill my cremation jewelry with the ashes?
Every cremation jewelry item we sell includes a filling kit and instructions to help you fill your precious piece. We highly recommend that you lay out a soft towel and gather the ashes, the jewelry item, and our filling kit. You will open your piece carefully. Next you set aside the tiny screw or bail in a safe place. Then you insert a tiny funnel into the opening and shake a very small amount of cremated remains though the opening and into your pendant. You will clear the threading using a straight pin or toothpick and then re-screw the bail/screw in place slowly. For those who wish to seal the pendant, you will want to apply the adhesive before re-screwing the bail/screw.
How do I care for my cremation ash jewelry?
In general, you care for crmeation jewelry the same way as you would any of your favorite jewelry pieces. You can use a soft cloth designed for jewelry care to keep it clean. Given the precious contents, we recommend avoiding moisture as much as possible. Thus we do not recommend bathing, showering, or swimming while wearing crmeation jewelry as it can cause tarnishing and affect any adhesive used to seal the pendant.
