When your loved one dies, you feel an even stronger desire to be near them. The loss that you have suffered makes you long to feel their presence in some way or another. The mention of their name, the smell of their clothes, a quick glance at their picture, all give you a brief sense of comfort, knowing that you can still hold onto a small piece of your loved one.

If someone close to you is grieving the loss of a loved one, a beautiful way to carry the memory of their beloved departed is with a piece of jewelry. It’s something that can be worn at all times to serve as a gentle reminder of the one they still hold dear to their heart.

Here are a few of my favorite pieces of memorial jewelry. Find one that you think will speak to your loved one and give it as an expression of your deepest sympathy for their loss.

Memorial Bangle Bracelet

 

This bracelet is a beautiful reminder to someone who is grieving that their faith in God will help them through the struggle. The rhodium bracelet is inscribed with the message, “I can do everything through Him who gives me strength.” There are going to be days when your loved one will feel as though they are not strong enough to bear the pain. Let the bracelet guide them back to the Lord and help them find strength in Him.
