Traditionally, we have buried our deceased in cemeteries or scattered their ashes, but times have changed and technology has stepped in and options have increased – a lot. Here are some things that you may not have known about when it comes to answering the question, “How do I want to honor my loved ones’ cremated ashes?”
Grieving families can now turn the ashes of their loved ones into diamonds, through a process called micro-diamond or synthetic diamond creation. These diamonds (Yes, diamonds) can be green, yellow, or blue and are real diamonds. They’re made by creating the purest version of carbon known to man, using the carbon extracted from ashes. And, obviously these diamonds can be turned into jewelry. We think this is a great way to honor a loved one and this jewelry can be passed down the generations. We recommend Everdear.
Memorial trees are another option where cremated ashes can be turned into something beautiful. Biodegradable urns can be used to grow a tree while preserving the remains of loved ones. The family can plant the tree in a place of their choosing, and it becomes a living symbol of their loved one.
Memorial paintings are unique as you can incorporate the ashes of loved ones into the paint and create a beautiful piece of art with meaning behind it. Not only do these paintings capture the essence of your loved one, but they can also be handed to future generations for keepsake.
Although tattoos aren’t for everyone, there is an option to turn the ashes of loved ones into ink and have it permanently embedded into your skin. This option is for those who cherish the memory of their loved one and want to mark it permanently.
Lastly, memorial jewelry is an excellent way to keep the memory of your lost loved one with you at all times. Families can choose to have ashes encased in beautiful and unique pieces of jewelry, such as necklaces, bracelets, rings and even stones.
