The unfortunate reality is that every single one of us will experience the death of a loved one at some time in our life. Though our loved ones may be gone from the earth, they will always live on in the memories of those whose lives they touched. If you’re looking for a way to keep the loved ones you’ve lost close to your heart, have you considered photo jewelry? Photo jewelry can be a great way to pay homage those who have touched your life, and ensure that their memory lives on long after they’re gone.
Photo jewelry has long been a way of commemorating lost loved ones, dating all the way back to the Victorian Era and the invention of photography itself. The precedents of the tradition can be traced back even further to the painted portrait jewelry of the 17th and 18th century United States and Britain, which was also used to memorialize the deceased. By celebrating your loved ones with photo jewelry, not only will you be honoring the departed. You will become a part of a centuries-old tradition of showing your appreciation for lost loved ones with your own photo jewelry.
Historically, the wearing of photo jewelry was restricted to the few affluent enough to afford the high cost of fashioning it, but today anyone can celebrate the lives of their dearly departed with photo necklaces, photo bracelets, photo bookmarks, and even photo key chains. Memory Maker allows you to upload your photos to our site, and ship the finished jewelry directly to you. With the transition to digital photography, you can upload your photos in minutes and — in many cases — receive your jewelry within a matter of days.
Photo jewelry is a wonderful way to make sure those you miss dearly are with you during the most important moments in your life. A bride wears a photo of her grandmother on her wedding day; a student wears a photo of her father on her graduation day. With photo jewelry, you can honor the loved ones that couldn’t be part of the events that they would have treasured.
If you’re looking for a way to pay your respects to a lost loved one, photo jewelry is an idea you should keep in mind. It’s a touching tradition with a long, rich history, not to mention that it’s easier and more affordable to get your own custom-made photo jewelry than it’s ever been before. Though your loved one may be gone, you can ensure that their memory will never be lost with Memory Maker photo jewelry.
