Ashes into jewellery creation
We require one spoonful of the ashes per item ordered and will return the unused ashes together with your completed order. All ashes are different in particle size and colour. Please do not worry about this, we have a process to deal with it.
Ashes into jewellery
The Ashes into Glass ® process of transforming the ashes into jewellery starts in our hot workshop. We use traditional techniques combined with our own unique, patented processes to create a beautiful, lasting tribute to the one you hold dear.
Your loved one’s ashes, coloured glass crystals and molten glass are skillfully layered together to create the rough stone. The multiple layers give the stone it’s look of dimension and depth.
Cutting & Polishing
Once cooled, it is expertly cut, polished and toughened before being set. The stone is even more durable than the metal and its beauty will stand the test of time, reflecting the bond you share with your loved one.
The Completed Stone
Like your loved one, each Ashes into Glass stone is different to all others. Yours may remind you of a starry night’s sky, a wispy cloud up above or maybe the ashes floating on a gentle breeze.
The metal part of Ashes into Glass jewellery is hand-cast in 9ct gold, sterling silver or white gold. It will be Assay-marked and will also have our own maker’s mark, “ASHES” which is our guarantee of the finest jewellery.
Setting the stone
When the metal and the stone are ready, they are mounted together in our setting workshop. This work requires a high degree of skill and patience.
Your jewellery will be diamond-point engraved with your own personal message. This could be a phrase that your loved one used to say, maybe a line from a favourite song or a more traditional message such as your loved one’s name and dates of life.
We take great care when creating your Ashes into Glass jewellery and we want the packaging to reflect this. Your completed item will be presented to you gift-wrapped together with it’s own certificate of authenticity.
