When someone we love passes away, it can be comforting to hold a tangible reminder of them near. Memorial Necklaces engraved with a fingerprint can provide that precious connection to families who are grieving.

 

What Are Memorial Necklaces?

Memorial Necklaces are thoughtful pieces of Jewelry that are made to honor a Loved One who has died. Most Necklace memorials can be customized to tell your late Loved One’s unique story through birthstones, inscriptions, and even engraved fingerprints. These heirlooms help those who are grieving to find comfort and allow for them to always keep the memory of their Loved One near.

 

Different Styles of Memorial Necklaces

There is a memorial Necklace style for everyone in the family. Choose from feminine Charms to masculine Dog Tags to Cremation Urn Pendants for a Necklace that is the most meaningful to you.

 

Pendant

Charm

A touching way to stay connected with a late Loved One, our Fingerprint Charms are smaller and lighter than Pendants while still acting as a tangible connection to the people you miss. Our Fingerprint Charms can even be outfitted with a lobster clasp if you or someone you love would rather wear them on a Bracelet.

 

Lariat

Ways to Personalize Your Memorial Necklace

Your Loved One was unique. Honor and remember them with a memorial that is just as special by personalizing your Necklace with the following features and accessories:

  • Metal Type: Choose your favorite shade—from timeless Yellow Gold to beautiful Sterling Silver, modern Rose Gold, and more—for a metal type and color that emphasizes your style and your Loved One’s story.
  • Chain: The Chain you pick for your Necklace will help determine where it will lay on your body. Pair different Chain lengths with a couple of Pendants or Charms for a gorgeous layered look that can honor multiple Loved Ones.

  • Fingerprint: There’s nothing more unique than a fingerprint. By engraving your Loved One’s print on a Necklace, you will create a memorial unlike any other. Many of our Necklace styles also have the option of being engraved with a handprint, footprint, or paw print, helping you to stay close to everyone who means the most to you.
  • Inscription: Words can be a powerful way to create a connection with someone we have loved. Quotes, verses, nicknames, and monograms are all great inscriptions to add to your Necklace.
  • Birthstone Charms: Whether worn to represent a birth month or simply a favorite color, Birthstone Charms add both meaning and beauty to memorial Jewelry.
  • Symbolic Charms: Showcase what was important to your Loved One by pairing your personalized Necklace with a Symbolic Charm. The Heart, Cross, Angel Wing, and other Symbolic Charm shapes all emphasize and complement your Loved One’s story.

 

How Memorial Jewelry Comforts Families

Memorial Jewelry comforts families by giving them a tangible way to feel close to their deceased Loved One while they grieve. Fingerprint Necklaces can be especially important during this healing journey, as they provide families the opportunity to physically touch the fingerprint of their late Loved One. They can feel the lines and grooves and know that their Loved One is always present.

 

These custom memorials can also help families to feel their Loved One’s spirit with them at visitations, funeral services, and other special events. In fact, many people find that wearing memorial Jewelry at their wedding helps to keep their late Loved One’s presence near during such a big milestone.

 

It is our hope that the Fingerprint Necklaces we create can help you experience this precious comfort and connection to your Loved One. You have our deepest sympathies for your loss, now and always.
