Infinity Loop for Ashes

Modern Memorial Jewelry Designs

Losing a loved one can turn our world upside down. Long after the funeral or memorial service is over, grief can significantly affect our daily lives. Grief has a way of hitting us in waves at unexpected moments. From certain scents to special memories to changes in routines, there are countless ways for us to be triggered with grief. A sense of powerlessness often accompanies overwhelming loss. With numerous design options, modern memorial jewelry can help restore a some sense of stability and serve as a beacon of light during your darkest moments.

Fingerprint Pendants

Jewelry that Holds Ashes

Also known as remembrance jewelry, funeral jewelry, or memorial jewelry, modern cremation jewelry is designed to hold your loved one’s ashes within any number of its unique styles. The small holding chamber within the design can house approximately a pinch of ashes. With such a small amount needed, the bereaved can divide ashes among several memorial jewelry pieces while retaining a full-size urn if desired. The Living Urn’s exclusive Adventure collection provides several high-quality modern memorial jewelry designs to give you a one-of-a-kind memento.


Necklaces are one of the most popular ways to display your sacred memorial. Necklaces are like warm hugs from your departed loved one. Pendants hang close to the heart, which can bring comfort and peace to those experiencing grief. With elegant styles, radiant beauty, and deep personal significance, modern cremation jewelry necklaces can be an ideal choice for your special remembrance piece. From necklaces to bracelets, here are three awe-inspiring designs from the Living Urn’s Adventure collection:

Tree of Life Cremation Pendant

With deep religious and spiritual roots, the Tree of Life Cremation pendant has something for everyone. The deep roots connect the tree to the physical Earth while its vibrant branches extend upward and outward to the spiritual realm. From immortality to family to creation to oneness, the Tree of Life is teaming with countless ways to express the significant relationship you share with your loved one. A small chamber securely holds a small amount of your loved one’s ashes. Made of sterling silver, our skilled artisan jewelers handcraft this beautiful pendant with care.

Infinity Loop Pendant

Made of high-quality stainless steel, the Infinity Loop pendant makes a bold yet clear statement about our never-ending bonds with our loved ones. There is no beginning or end—only the love we share within our sacred relationships. The Infinity Loop’s narrow top loop transitions to a wider, lower loop to give the design more depth and elegance to its display.


The grief process is very personal. For individuals who prefer a minimalist approach, memorial bracelets allow them to present their special tribute fashionably and elegantly. Like a gentle hand-hold, bracelets caress the wrist and remind you that your loved one is always with you in spirit.

Cuff Bracelet

Handcrafted in stainless steel, the incomparable Cuff Bracelet is offered in three beautiful colors: gold, silver, and black. Even though it holds a small portion of your loved one’s ashes, on-lookers are none the wiser; you have the power to share or safeguard the story of your loved one. The sublime design of the Cuff bracelet makes it a versatile fashion choice for nearly any outfit or occasion. It comes with an easy-to-use kit for transferring ashes into the bracelet’s holding chamber.

Fingerprint Jewelry

Although traditional cremation jewelry holds ashes, other memorial jewelry, such as fingerprint jewelry, can also be considered cremation jewelry. As the name suggests, fingerprint jewelry displays a fingerprint as part of its unique design. For some, including a fingerprint feels more appropriate than housing a small portion of ashes. Fingerprints provide a unique, personal touch to memorial jewelry. The bold display of fingerprint jewelry allows grief-stricken individuals to share their grief openly. Sharing the story of your lost loved one with interested onlookers can be soothing and cathartic for the bereaved. Here are three exquisite designs from The Living Urn’s My Living Touch collection:

Heart Fingerprint Pendant

Sacred bonds leave an indelible mark on our hearts. It’s only fitting that the Heart Fingerprint pendant presents a heart-shaped pendant with your loved one’s fingerprint placed at the center. Made from 925 silver sterling, this pendant can be personalized both on the front and back.

Cross Fingerprint Pendant

Christian values may be of great importance to your departed loved one or your grief process. As the most cherished symbol for Christians, the Cross Fingerprint pendant’s exclusive cross design is hand-crafted from 925 sterling silver. Your loved one’s fingerprint is placed at the center.

Teardrop Fingerprint Pendant

With a modern teardrop look, the 925 Sterling Silver Teardrop Fingerprint pendant symbolizes the sadness and grief one experiences with an overwhelming loss. Your departed loved one’s fingerprint is respectfully placed at the center of the teardrop.

Engravable Jewelry

Another beautiful and meaningful way to honor your loved one is through engravable jewelry. This type of memorial jewelry allows for countless unique personalization options. Whether you’d like to add names, memorial coordinates, sentiments, or dates, you can hold your loved one’s spirit in eternal remembrance. Here are three stunning choices from The Living Urn’s Forever collection:

Dog Tag Coordinate Pendant

Made from stainless steel, the classic Dog Tag Coordinate pendant displays meaningful coordinates of your choice. The coordinates could represent a sacred spot, such as an ash-scattering location or where you shared a favorite moment. This timeless piece can also be engraved with additional sentiments to deepen the significance of your memorial jewelry piece.

Dog Tag Memorial Pendant

Like the Dog Tag Coordinate pendant, the Dog Tag Memorial pendant allows you to engrave several meaningful sentiments like coordinates, names, and dates. For those who wish to take it a step further, the Dog Tag Memorial pendant can also display your loved one’s fingerprint at the center of the dog tag.

Custom Cremation Pendant Vial

Measuring approximately 2.5” in length and ½” in diameter, the Custom Cremation Pendant Vial is a versatile vessel for holding a wide range of sentimental elements. You can include a small portion of your loved one’s ashes, strands of hair, soil from the burial site, or soil or water from the scattering site within the inner glass vial. A small cork safely secures the contents. The glass vial is housed inside a stainless steel vial, which can be engraved with a sentiment of your choice.

With modern cremation jewelry, you can create an everlasting tribute to honor your loved one in a personalized style all your own. Our high-quality remembrance jewelry is hand-crafted by our skilled artisan jewelers to ensure your special piece honors your loved one for generations.
