Passages Memorial Jewelry uses a loved one’s cremated remains or hair to fashion handmade mementos that are as unique as the individual.
Using cremated remains and an ingenious encapsulation process that produces a smooth, granite-like finish, we create exquisite jewelry, elegant photo frames and memorial plaques. Each keepsake is completely unique and variations in appearance are to be expected.
Alternatively, if a lock of hair is available, Passages’ in-house artisans are able to create one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces that are completely unique. We are able to take requests for the style that you prefer, but recommend that you ultimately leave the design of the final piece up to the discretion of our artists. The reason for this is that the color, thickness, length and straightness of hair or remains will vary from item to item. The type of hair that we receive and the product that you have selected will determine the design of the final product.
Memorial Jewelry keepsakes are a tangible and very personal reminder of a loved one, and the special time that you spent with them. Each jewelry piece is available in Sterling Silver, Gold Plating on Sterling Silver and Solid Gold (priced according to the market price). Pendants made from silver include an 18″ snake chain. Gold pendants do not include a chain.
Since each piece is custom-made and completely unique, full pre-payment is required before any items are produced. Products with color may have slight color variations from what you see above due to their unique nature.
Exclusively manufactured for Passages International, Inc.
Memorial Jewelry Guarantee – We only ever use the cremated remains or hair that you provide us with for your piece. Each keepsake is 100% formed from these cremated remains. Any cremated remains that are unused will be returned to you in full, aside from a trace amount of cremated remains which is lost during the production of the Memorial Jewelry.

Passages suggests offering memorial trees as the perfect complement to any biodegradable urn or scattering tube. Whether it is planted where the cremated remains of a loved one are scattered or buried, or in your garden at home, the trees provide a lasting and living memorial. As part of The Natural Choice® Memorial Tree Program, a numbered certificate can be used to redeem a 12” tree sapling that is appropriate to your climate and guaranteed for a year to grow. Read more about the program and how it works.
Simply complete the form on our website, including your certificate number, and a tree will be mailed to the address you provide. Memorial trees are a wonderful way to remember a loved one that, if you choose, can grow from the same soil in which a loved one’s remains were laid to rest. Because families receive a sapling instead of seeds, the hardest part of the tree’s life has passed and there is no worry of a seed not germinating.
Each Passages adult casket comes with a free Memorial Tree Certificate that can be redeemed for a live tree.
Memorial Petals are also available and are a perfect addition to a burial at sea or other ceremonies.
