Treasuring the memory of a loved one through memorial jewellery is a beautiful way to keep them close. However, we understand that choosing the right colour for your piece of cremation ashes jewellery can be difficult.
At Hand on Heart, our aim is to help you create the perfect piece to remember your loved one, and the colour is a significant part of the process. If you’re feeling daunted or overwhelmed, we want to reassure you that it’s perfectly normal to feel that way.
In this blog, we’ll explore the lovely ways to decide on your jewellery colour from our collection, which currently includes the following colour options: black, white, blue, purple, pink, red and green.
Your loved one’s favourite colour
Choosing a loved one’s favourite colour is a beautiful way to pay tribute to their memory and tastes. It’s a lovely way to remember them, as looking at their favourite colour might stir up those wonderful memories you have with them.
The colour of your loved one’s eyes
We think this is a beautifully moving tribute to your loved one, and it’s an option that is undoubtedly growing in popularity. The sparkling blue and dazzling green colour options might be a heart-warming reminder of your loved one’s eyes.
Their favourite football club or sports team
You can keep a loved one’s passions close to you by choosing a colour that meant a lot to them. Perhaps they were a loyal Liverpool FC fan? Our red cremation ashes jewellery would make a perfect option. Or maybe they were a staunch Chelsea FC supporter? The blue cremation ashes jewellery would represent their passion for their favourite team.
Your favourite colour
If you have a preferred colour in mind, then your cremation ashes jewellery is a stunning way to wear that colour every day. You could pick a subtle colour (our white memorial jewellery is beautifully understated), or choose your cremation ashes jewellery to add a stunning splash of colour to a piece of jewellery. The bright colours in our collection are absolutely gorgeous.
What colours mean…
If you’re still unsure, perhaps it would be nice to look at the different spiritual meanings behind colours and what they mean to you or how they represent the bond and relationship with your loved one. These colour descriptions might also be helpful if you’re picking the cremation ashes jewellery on behalf of someone as a gift. It could offer comfort on their healing journey if they’re grieving.
Loyalty, trust, stability and confidence. Blue is also a calming and relaxing colour that reduces stress.
Harmony, hope, endurance and safety. Green restores depleted energy and is a balancing colour.
Strength, power, passion and love. Red is an energising colour that builds confidence.
Romance, femininity and friendship. Pink is synonymous with understanding and nurture.
Magic, creativity and wisdom. Purple helps us communicate what we’re thinking and feeling.
Grief and power. Black protects us and helps us.
Purity and innocence. White typically symbolises a new beginning.
We’re proud to have received amazing feedback about our colour options. Here are just a couple of recent comments from happy customers and the colours they chose for their memorial jewellery.
“Thank you HoH, for my beautiful ring with my grandma's ashes in... when I received it I cried happy tears as I was so over the moon with it. I chose a beautiful green colour which was my grandma’s favourite. I miss her every day, but this piece of jewellery has brought her close to me again... the design is beautiful and modern just what I was looking for. I have great comfort in having her with me every day and always.”
“I bought this necklace for my sister-in-law who was grieving the death of her mother, she was her main carer. The necklace was lovely and being able to choose a colour for the gem was a special touch as my mother-in-law’s favourite colour was red.”
