Jewelry and Art

A very popular way to keep the spirit of a loved-one alive is by using a very small amount of their cremains in a personalized piece of jewelry or even a customized work of art. The Cremation Society of Greater Cincinnati is pleased to offer a wide range of options.

  • Keepsake Pendants – Cremation jewelry and pendants are available in a variety of heart designs, dolphins, tear drops, butterflies and birds.
  • Art Glass – Customized art glass can be created using cremains in unique and colorful designs. Select a pendant, rounds or heart shapes. “Eternal Flame” art glass is available in small, medium and large sizes. An art glass Standing Heart can sit beautifully on a desk, shelf, or mantel.

At The Cremation Society of Greater Cincinnati, we pride ourselves in staying connected with the latest trends and designs in urns and cremation jewelry and art. As families become more comfortable with the cremation process, many are also embracing contemporary urns and uses for small amounts of cremains.
