Memorial Jewellery & Memorial Gifts

We are a family run business with a stated intent to raise as much money for charity as possible. We started to do this with our Love2Donate initiative and then extended our activities in 2016 to include Footprints and Whispers. We decided that we would make contributions from every sale in Footprints and Whispers to Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity in favour of the Eye Department.

To make sure we provide you with the very best, we delve into the corners of the British Isles to find high-quality artisans who will make very specific memorial jewellery and mementoes for you. To become one of our Artisan Partners these artisans are carefully checked out by a team of three of us for the following criteria: quality, like, individuality, care, security and reliability.

Where did the Practice of Memorial Jewellery Come From?

“Those who have passed away do not have to be forgotten…” Memorial jewellery can be divided into two clear categories, Memento Vitae and Memento Morie, memorable jewellery of the living and memorial jewellery for the deceased.
