Memorial jewelry has been popular throughout history. The Victorians made it especially popular with their Whitby Jet mourning jewelry and lockets to keep loved one's hair.
These days memorial keepsake jewelry can be for keeping a photo close to your heart, for keeping a pinch of cremation ashes in, or a lock of hair. Sometimes, just a heart, an angel, a tear or a cross can be a comforting symbol to wear.

There is a wide range of prices to suit all pockets. Each link on this page goes to a selection of that type of jewelry.
