Have a piece of jewelry made or just buy a piece with their Name, signature, birthstone or some other memory or special meaning. For our first Christmas without our son, Trevor, my parents bought stylish dog tag necklaces for all the family members. Since I own a jewelry store and can do specialized engraving, they bought the necklaces through me and then I engraved them with Trevor's "I heart" symbol and put person's name on them. They are worn, kept on the person, saved as a special keepsake and hung from car rear view mirrors.
Because my engraving system is computerized, I am able to take almost any writing, etching or even a photo and put it on jewelry or plaques.
You can have loved ones fingerprints put on a piece of jewelry. If you do not have their fingerprint you can just have the generic one. The back side can be engraved with name &/or date(s). Necklace, bracelet, or money clips are available.
This jewelry can be used for couples, parents or grandparents, etc. Not just for those who are no longer with us. More than one can be hung on a chain or bracelet.
This jewelry and many more can be purchased through my store.
As the owner of a jewelry store, I often get asked what a widow can do with her husband's wedding band. A favorite of many is to make it into a pendant. I have added a bail to top of the "circle" and told them the circle never ends and represents eternity. Sometime we set a diamond in the bottom of the circle formed by the inside of the ring or we set a cross inside the ring There are some creative things you can do with jewelry left by your loved ones. Photo to come soon.
