Cremation Ashes Jewellery

Everything you need to know about Memorial Ashes and Hair Jewellery

We hold our Memorial Ashes Jewellery range very close to our hearts here at Hand on Heart Jewellery and we appreciate how special and unique these designs are. We also understand that choosing to part with your loved ones ashes can be a tough decision and so we have put together some of the most common questions we are asked about our range of memorial jewellery to help put your mind at ease when it comes to ordering with us. 

How are ashes turned into Jewellery?

To create Cremation Ashes Jewellery, you will need to supply a small token of the Cremation Ashes which you wish to use. This can be done easily using the Ashes Collection Kit which we will provide you with once you have placed your jewellery order. Using the measuring spoon supplied in the kit, carefully put the Ashes into the special bag, seal, and return the kit free of charge. Once we receive the Cremation Ash, your jewellery creation process can begin.

How is your Cremation Ashes Jewellery made and how is it different to other companies?

You may notice that Hand on Heart Cremation Ash Jewellery has a unique appearance which is unlike other Ashes Jewellery. When designing our ranges, we specifically wanted to create a beautiful 3D illusion of the ashes floating in the jewellery rather than a flat appearance. We create this unique style by very carefully layering tiny pieces of Cremation Ashes between layers of liquid resin. The process requires a very steady hand, an eye for detail and unlimited care and attention. We use an extremely hard wearing resin in our Ashes Jewellery which does take a little longer (up to 7 days) to cure, but the reward is a much superior quality than can be achieved with quicker resins. All of our pieces are made to last a lifetime and therefore come with a lifetime guarantee. 

How much ash is needed to make a piece of jewellery?

When we send you your Ashes Kit, we will ask you to use the supplied spoon to carefully measure out the Ashes. We do only require a small amount of cremation ash and advise that one full teaspoon of Ashes is plenty to make up to 6 pieces of jewellery.

How much does Ashes Jewellery cost?

Cremation Ashes Jewellery requires a lot of individual time and attention to make perfectly and this is reflected in its price. Our pricing starts at £150 which includes all delivery costs and a lifetime guarantee, you can browse our full range on our website here

Can you use hair instead of cremation ash?

Hair or fur can be used in place of Cremation Ashes in some of our pieces. Please contact us if you would like to use hair instead of Ashes so we can advise further. Alternatively, we have a range designed specifically for hair which you can view here. The process is very similar and instead of providing Cremation Ashes in the Collection Pack we send you, you just need to pop the hair in there instead

Can you use pet ashes to create the jewellery?

Pet Cremation Jewellery is extremely popular and is a beautiful way to keep your beloved pet with you forever. Our specialist Designers will very carefully layer the Cremation Ash in your chosen design which includes necklaces, charms, rings and cufflinks

What is the turnaround time for this range?

All of our Memorial Ashes Resin Jewellery and Keepsakes are created by hand in our studio and as such, does take a little while to create from start to finish. We ask that you allow up to 21 days for your piece to be created from the day on which your ashes are received into our studio, we will pop you an email to let you know as soon as they have arrived.

Can I use the ashes of two people in one piece of jewellery?

Memorial Ashes Jewellery is the perfect way to preserve a beautiful bond and as such, we can certainly use two sets of ashes in one piece of jewellery. When returning the ashes to our studio you can either pop both sets of ashes into the same pouch or if you would like to be supplied with two different pouches, just send us an email once your order has been placed and we will organise this for you. 

We do have some designs which have been design specifically to hold the ashes of two people or pets, such as our Double Heart Necklace or the lovely Womens Adjustable Ring.

How do I look after my ashes jewellery?

As with any Sterling Silver jewellery, we would recommend keeping your piece dry and away from any chemicals to avoid tarnish at bay. You can find out more about caring for your jewellery in our blog here
