Examples of Cremation Jewelry for Men

What is cremation jewelry, and how do you buy cremation jewelry for men? Cremation jewelry for men is made in more traditionally masculine or neutral styles. Cremation jewelry is a way to show honor and respect for someone you love who has passed on. These special pieces of jewelry represent a beloved person who passed and whose memory you want to memorialize.

Cremation jewelry helps you do this by reminding you of your departed loved one and showing others your love and care for them. Some cremation jewelry has a small space you can fill with cremation ashes, earth, or water. Another type is made with the image of your loved one’s fingerprint. Still, others are engraved with details about your loved one, such as their name, dates of birth and passing, or the coordinates of their final resting place. Use this guide to find or gift the right piece of cremation jewelry for men. 

How to Choose Cremation Jewelry for Men

  • Consider your style. Every man has their taste and style preference, and it’s essential to consider your preferences when selecting a piece of cremation jewelry. While there are many masculine styles available, there are also a lot of neutral style options as well.
  • How will you be using it? Cremation jewelry is typically worn or displayed. The style matters less if this is a display piece, which may give you more options. But, if this is going to be worn, consider your style.
  • Another consideration is the material. More delicate metals like gold may be better off as display pieces. Sterling silver is more durable than gold but still needs care when worn. Stainless steel is a beautiful yet highly durable metal for cremation jewelry. While unisex, stainless steel often feels like a more masculine metal.
  • Are you or the one you’re buying for a person of faith? This will inform styles, such as a cross and any engraved sentiments. Verses from their spiritual texts would be appropriate. Or, is the person who passed religious? This would also make shapes like crosses and spiritual sentiments meaningful.
  • What kind of cremation jewelry are you thinking about? Some types of cremation jewelry are made to hold ashes. Others require a digital image of a fingerprint. If you’re gifting this piece of cremation jewelry, simply asking the person you’re buying for is enough to determine if they want to handle cremation ashes. Otherwise, use your best judgment when deciding. The safest option for gifted cremation jewelry is likely an engraved piece.
  • Choose a high-quality piece of cremation jewelry. Cremation jewelry must be well-made with high-quality materials. Not only is it a unique piece of jewelry, but its sentimental value makes it priceless. Cremation jewelry is meant to last lifetimes as a testament to a beautiful soul, so quality is important.
  • Remember, you can wear your cremation jewelry publicly or under your shirt. Either way, it is a reflection of your love for the person who passed.
