Different Styles of Cremation Jewellery Available in Australia

3 pieces of cremation jewellery with differing stylesWith the recent loss of a loved one, many Australians are looking into different ways that they can honour their loved ones. With the rates of cremation increasing in Australia steadily over the years, Urns have become an increasingly popular and sought after option. While this has been great for many, others have been inclined towards a more unique and special way to pay their respects to their loved ones. This is why ideas such as cremation jewellery have started to gain traction and are being increasingly sought after. That's why we'll be taking a look at some of the different styles you may find in Australia's market today as well as how it could benefit you.

What is cremation jewellery?

Cremation Jewellery is classified as any piece of jewellery that is designed to hold a small portion of a deceased person's ashes or hair. This is not limited to people however as you can also get cremation jewellery for a beloved pet too. Cremation jewellery can come in many forms but is most commonly found in the form of necklaces and pendants. While this is the most common type of cremation jewellery, items such as wristbands, rings or others can exist too which can also serve a similar purpose. Cremation jewellery holds a portion of your loved ones ashes that you would receive after their cremation. It is a great way for people to handle their grief and has been reported to be of great help for people dealing with the loss of a loved one. The jewellery itself serves as a reminder of them and is made so that it can be carried and worn anywhere and to any occasion. Let's take a look at some of the styles you may find in the Australian market. 

The conventional style

A lot of the pendants you can find will be of a conventional style. This style is designed in such a way to look unassuming and like a standard piece of jewellery anyone might wear. This is great for people who may feel uncomfortable with other people knowing what they are wearing as it is a very personal topic. These pendants normally have a silver colouring, either made from stainless steel or sterling silver, and come in very simple and elegant designs. These are also particularly great options for those who want to wear their cremation jewellery all the time as it will work with any attire. 

The gemstone style

These pendants often feature a prominent gemstone as the main focus of the piece. These are particularly appealing to spiritual people and those who believe in the spiritual and healing properties of gemstones. These pieces often have a small part of the connection between the pendant and necklace set apart for the ashes so that there is no hole or damage done to the gem itself. Gems or gem lookalikes can be used in these pendants to give off these special properties or to simply look like a beautifully touching way to memorialise your loved one. 

The symbolic style

Many pendants can also come as a symbolic piece. Whether it is a tree, bird or other such symbolic pendant, many are made to represent certain concepts or ideas related to passing away or other important or integral topics. These are great as a way to represent how one feels about their loved ones passing and what it means to them. Symbolic pendants can be a wonderful way to make your loved ones' passing feel more personalised to you. 


Many pieces of cremation jewellery can be customised to describe the loved one and their passing. You can put their name, an epitaph or some other special phrase you shared with them. These little touches can embellish the piece and make it feel like it is truly special to you and your loved one. If the store you are purchasing from has options to customise your jewellery, we highly recommend taking this option as it is a great method of making your purchase feel special and personal to you.

While there can be many different styles of cremation jewellery available in Australia, it is ultimately up to you to decide which one is best for you. It is also incredibly valuable to consider the option of customising your piece with information you hold personal and special to you.
