If filling your cremation jewelry is something you are not comfortable with, many funeral homes offer to do so as a complimentary service to the family.
The opening for the discreet interior compartment of your cremation jewelry is either found by unscrewing the bail at the top of the pendant or by locating the small hidden screw. The bail can be removed by twisting gently to the left and the threaded screw can be removed using the specially designed screwdriver that is included with your selection where applicable.
Filling your cremation jewelry is very easy. We have listed the instructions below and your cremation jewelry will include a set of easy to follow instructions. Additionally, you can watch our video to get step-by-step instructions on how to fill your cremation jewelry.

Insert and tighten the screw back into the opening to make sure that the cremation jewelry was not overfilled.

No! Some people may not be comfortable using cremated ashes and for others, using ashes may not be an option. Some other ideas might be some ground from your loved one was laid to rest, ashes from a burned photo or even a small scroll to fit inside a cylinder.

We include a small tube of adhesive with your cremation jewelry purchase. Using a toothpick, apply a very thin layer of adhesive to the threads of the screw as well as to the threads of the opening where the screw is inserted.

Our photo engraved jewelry is made of stainless steel and the image that you select is engraved onto the surface of the pendant. Our master engravers can remove backgrounds, join two photos into one and crop the picture to your exact specifications.

Cremation jewelry should never be worn while bathing or swimming. Chemicals found in shampoos, soaps, pools and even hard water can damage the integrity of the metal and the seal that protects the ashes inside the cremation jewelry. Store your cremation jewelry in a cool dry area while bathing or swimming.
Once or twice a month, use a dry lint free cloth to remove any build up and oils from the surface of the cremation jewelry.
Gently dry and polish with a circular motion, bringing a shine and luster to the surface of the cremation jewelry.
Never used jewelry cleaners or abrasives to clean your cremation jewelry as they can damage the surface of the metal and compromise the integrity of the cremation jewelry.
Cremation jewelry is a great gift idea for everyone. Keeping in mind the age, lifestyle and personal taste of the recipient is important when gifting cremation jewelry. This allows you to still show you care and give them something personal yet it is within their comfort zone.
Elderly adults may have a difficult time with clasps. Consider selecting a longer chain to accompany a cremation pendant gift as the chain can be slipped over the head with ease and taken off with no additional assistance needed.
This eliminates the need to struggle with a small clasp.
Those that lead a highly active and rigorous lifestyle might be better suited to a cremation bracelet or cremation ring in lieu of a cremation pendant.
Pendants and necklaces can easily get tangled and a cremation ring or bracelet is quick and easy to remove when necessary.
Cremation jewelry may not be for everyone but that doesn’t mean that you can’t gift them a personal reminder of their deceased. Keychains and rearview mirror pendants are ideal for those that don’t wear a lot of jewelry and many are available without an internal urn.
Photo engraved jewelry is also a great option for those that was a remembrance but maybe don't want to carry around cremation ashes.
