Cremation jewelry is a form of keepsake made to commemorate a loved one or pet that has passed. There are many forms of cremation jewelry. At Fine+Flux we have created a method of incorporating the ashes within a small compartment under the center stone and sealing shut (see our ready to order designs here). However, today we will be going over another method using resin.
Can you put ashes within resin?
Yes you can! We do this by delicately mixing ashes within the resin solution and curing it. Resin is a very durable material that will withstand every day wear and tear, perfect for a jewel you never want to take off. Resin can also be polished and easily worked. This means that if ever you were to scratch your resin piece, we could easily repair it, unlike traditional enamel that would need to be entirely redone.
Why Choose Resin For Your Memorial Jewel?
Resin is a great option because you can choose between translucent or opaque and can be made in almost every color. We have had clients request more translucent options in order to be able to see the ashes within their simulated gem. However, for clients who want something more discrete, we can make the mixture more opaque, concealing the fact there are ashes within the piece. You have full control over the appearance!
We can recreate almost any color. You can customize your rings' color to one that reminds you of that special person. In fine jewelry we also have birthstones for every month of the year which gives you the option to choose the birthstone of your loved one. For example January is for garnet (red stone) and May is for emerald (green stone).
In terms of the design of your jewel, we can make resin into any shape. So we can play around with different stone shapes and sizes until you like the final appearance of the gem. It is also a relatively inexpensive material to use in comparison to natural gemstones, which depending on the type and carat weight of the stone can be quite costly. You can make rather large cremation gemstones with out the large jump in price!
Customizing Your Resin Jewel
Because this is a very personal jewel, we offer complimentary engravings on every piece. This is a beautiful way to inscribe a meaningful message, name, or date that reminds you of that special person or pet.
