A Guide to Choosing the Perfect Memorial Jewellery
At EverWith, we understand the importance of finding meaningful ways to honour and remember those we've lost. Memorial jewellery is one of the best ways for you to have a physical reminder of your loved ones. We pride ourselves in helping people choose the perfect jewellery, but we understand it isn’t always easy to talk to someone during this time – so, we have put together this guide to help you choose the most personal memorial jewellery for you.
Why memorial jewellery?
Memorial jewellery goes beyond just ‘jewellery,’ it is also a reminder for you to carry around with you. Our pieces are designed to encapsulate the essence of people we have lost, creating a tangible connection that provides comfort during the journey of grief. Each piece of memorial jewellery holds a unique significance, often incorporating elements that capture the individuality. Whether you choose to use ashes, hair or even a small piece of clothing, you can represent your loved one in a meaningful bit of jewellery unique to you.
Selecting the perfect memorial jewellery begins with reflecting on the life of the departed. Take time to consider their passions, hobbies, and the moments that defined them. What were the qualities that made them unique? By delving into these aspects, you can ensure that the piece you choose is a genuine representation of their spirit.
Consider the symbolism that resonates with their memory. Birthstones, for example, can be integrated into the design to symbolise the month of their birth or a significant event. Engravings of meaningful dates, quotes, or phrases can add a personal touch that captures the essence of their life.
What are the types of memorial jewellery?
EverWith has a huge variety of jewellery options to match your personal taste. Pendants, lockets, bracelets and rings are among some of our most popular pieces. Once you have chosen the type of jewellery you want, you can then also choose the metal and gemstones – when doing this, you can think about the birthstone of the person you have lost, their favourite colour or a significant colour that is important to you. Which brings us on to personalisation.
Our favourite thing about memorial jewellery is how personal it is. Each piece is completely unique to the person, or people you are remembering. Our skilled artisans work together to incorporate elements that hold deep meaning to you and your family.

Creating a lasting tribute that you can wear
Having a keepsake that can be passed down through generations is an incredible way to memorialise someone you have lost. Incorporating the memorial jewellery into your daily life can provide a sense of closeness and connection. Whether it's wearing the piece close to your heart, displaying it in a special place, or using it as a focal point for remembrance, these gestures can help in navigating the journey of grief and healing.
