The concept for With You was born when our founder, Mikki, was searching for memorial jewelry. Her father had lost his battle with brain cancer and she wanted to honor his life. Her sister's wedding was approaching and Mikki wanted to find a private way to include him. The result was a beautiful memorial picture locket anklet with his photo inside. Even though he couldn't be there, he could still walk her down the aisle. We often tell this story, as a way to keep her father's memory alive just as we are sure that you often tell the stories of your lost loved ones. Even when those we cherish are no longer by our sides, they live on in our hearts and through their stories that we remember and share. Being able to create memorial jewelry for you brings us at With You a deep sense of purpose. When you reach out to us and share your stories of those you've lost, our hearts ache for your loss. Your stories move us and remind us to cherish every moment with those we love.
What is memorial jewelry?
Memorial jewelry, such as pendants for ashes or personalized memorial lockets, allow the opportunity to create a keepsake to honor the life of someone you love. This jewelry brings a sense of comfort and peace to the wearer. There are several types of jewelry that allow a way for you to memorialize a someone special who has passed away. You could choose to carry a pinch of ashes in a locket for ashes. Sometimes people place a lock of hair in a memorial locket pendant. Some choose to wear a symbol that reminds them of someone they've lost or engrave an important date, initials, or a fingerprint on a pendant. Another option would be to tuck a photo of your loved one in a memorial picture locket. You can find these different types of condolence jewelry in a variety of metals and styles to suit your budget. You're sure to find something just perfect to turn into your own keepsake to serve as a way to honor someone truly irreplaceable. By wearing remembrance jewelry, you have a little reminder of the love and happy memories they brought to your life. And it's as though you can bring your loved one with you every day. Through those moments when you miss them most, bereavement jewelry provides a way for a lost loved one to be there.
How to gift remembrance jewelry
When someone you know has lost a loved one, memorial jewelry is a deeply thoughtful gift. We often help customers craft memorial jewelry to give as a sympathy gift for the loss of a husband, mother, child or someone loved so profoundly. The most important thing to consider when creating condolence jewelry to give as a gift is to know how they are coping with the loss. For some, it's too soon to receive a reminder of their loss. For others, they would appreciate the ability to carry a little memento of their loved one.
