The process of turning ashes into a gemstone starts with two pieces of glass. The glass is cut and the ashes are placed between the 2 pieces of glass. We use coloured glass on the bottom and clear glass on the top allowing the ashes to be clearly seen which adds to the beauty of the gemstone The glass is then heated and fused together which encapsulates the ashes. The glass is then shaped, before being hardened and then polished. The finished piece can then be added to a piece of jewellery such as a ring, bracelet or pendant. Glass gemstones offer a superior choice for memorial jewellery over alternatives such as resin.

Resin is not suitable for lasting memorial pieces as it is prone to breaking down over time. It cannot be worn day and night and may be damaged by contact with sunlight and water. Instead, we recommend choosing memorial jewellery pieces made from glass gemstones or precious metals, as these will offer reassurance that they will last a lifetime. We can help you to design your piece of memorial jewellery from start to finish, taking away some of the pressure to make decisions during the difficult grieving process.
