The elegant sparkle of crystal cremation jewelry is beautiful to behold. A silver plated bail with a rhodium coating allows access to the inner chamber, which is designed to hold a bit of ashes from a loved one’s cremation. Other keepsakes are suitable for enclosure in the ash pendant’s chamber as well, such as grains of earth from the cemetery where your loved one is laid to rest or a lock of your loved one’s hair. A pinch of colorful funeral or sympathy flowers, crushed and dried, makes an especially attractive display inside the transparent chamber of a crystal urn pendant.
Many Designs to Choose From
Some crystal cremation jewelry pieces are completely clear, distinguished only by the shape of the object. Memorial keepsakes in the shape of stars, teardrops, hearts, or vessels of various shapes and sizes fall into this category. Then there are decorative round crystal cremation pendants featuring designs painted in red, gold, black, white or silver. Pictures of zodiac signs, religious symbols, animals, musical instruments, and plant life are just some of the designs you can find in this type of crystal cremation jewelry.
Crystal Urn Pendants Are Affordable
Each piece of crystal cremation jewelry is designed and created, one at a time, by a professional jeweler. Crystal cremation jewelry is very affordable, and most pieces come with a black satin cord or silver chain, but you can also purchase a fine chain at additional cost.
Personalizing Your Crystal Cremation Jewelry
Many crystal cremation jewelry designs are suitable for engraving. Adding your loved one’s name and the dates of your loved one’s birth and death or a short inspirational phrase to your cremation keepsake will make your urn pendant a truly unique memorial.
Sealing Crystal Cremation Jewelry
The threaded bail that closes the chamber’s opening forms a seal to keep the contents of the cremation necklace safe inside and protect the contents from the elements. For your peace of mind, a few drops of waterproof glue may be applied to the bail’s threads to ensure a secure and permanent closure.
Cleaning Your Crystal Cremation Keepsake
When you wear crystal cremation jewelry, it will naturally pick up oils from your skin. Crystal is easy to clean, however, and with just a little effort you can keep it sparkling like new. Always put your crystal memorial pendant on after you’ve applied lotions, perfumes, makeup or hair spray to avoid getting those products on the crystal. When necessary, you can clean your crystal cremation jewelry in a solution of hot water and mild dish detergent. Rinse with hot water, and then dry and polish the crystal with a jeweler’s cloth or soft cotton cloth.
