Remembering Loved Ones with Memorial Jewellery: Valentine’s Day

Our unique, hand-crafted memorial jewellery Valentine’s gifts are truly one of a kind. Whether for yourself, or someone you know, these beautiful pieces can bring a sense of peace when the heart is still grieving.

We have a fantastic range of Valentine’s jewellery for her, that can help you remember a loved one who is no longer with you. If you have lost a husband, boyfriend or partner, our collection can be a wonderful way to celebrate your eternal love for them.

But it’s not just lovers and life partners that are important in the month of February. Because love can come in many forms, and doesn’t have to be between two people who are romantically linked. Valentine’s Day isn’t only for couples, but for families to pay respect to all whom they’ve loved, and our memorial jewellery range is the perfect way to do that.

The history of Valentine’s Day

This global holiday dates back thousands of years and has been a part of our culture for so long. It has origins in the Roman festival of Lupercalia, which was always held in mid-February. The main purpose of the festival was to mark the coming of spring, and this included fertility rites and also the coupling of men and women (done at random like a lottery).

In the 5th century Pope Gelasius created St. Valentine’s Day and this event replaced Lupercalia. By the 14th Century, the event had become popular in different parts of the world and was seen as a day for romance between those who had fallen in love.

So while today there is more of a commercial feel to Valentine’s Day, its roots prove that the calendar event has a lot more meaning than what mainstream retail brands often portray.

Whether it’s buying the perfect gift for someone you care about, finding sentimental connections with special items, or remembering a loved one who has passed, we think Valentine’s Day is a beautiful celebration that should bring joy to your heart.

When it comes to memorial jewellery, Valentine’s Day is a great time to find your perfect piece for remembrance. They can bring peace and help you deal day by day, while allowing you to take them with you everywhere you go.

Memorial Valentine’s jewellery for her

If you have lost someone close to you – or you know someone who has – memorial jewellery Valentine’s gifts are a beautiful way of keeping them close to your heart forever. We have a range of thoughtfully created keepsake jewellery designs, featuring symbolic Valentine’s Day hearts.

Our heart-shaped jewellery collection includes pieces that can be made with your loved one’s hair or ashes. An example of this is the Silver Crystarosin Heart Memorial Pendant, available in 10 different colours. The hair or ashes will be encapsulated inside the Crystarosin gem, becoming an eternal part of the necklace in a subtle and special way. For those who wish to celebrate Valentine’s Day for someone who has passed, this is the perfect present.

We also feature necklace designs with a capsule pendant, allowing a lot more versatility in terms of what you want to put inside. Our Sterling Silver Heart Capsule Pendant has a sealable capsule which displays a heart shaped glass front so the contents can be seen. This type of jewellery is ideal for storing anything from hair and ashes to paper, fabric and other special keepsakes.

How our Valentine’s jewellery is made

At Footprints and Whispers, we treat all jewellery and products with care and take a sensitive approach to your loved ones’ hair, ashes and other materials. We can preserve cremation ashes in glass, create inlaid gemstones using ashes or hair, or use the materials to create imprints into sterling silver.

Whatever method we use, we make the process simple and easy for our customers. We only require the equivalent of two teaspoons of ashes or soil, or a twist of hair the same thickness as your small finger per every jewellery piece. Any unused ingredients will be returned to you with the finished item.

All of our jewellery pieces are British-made by artists who are experts in their craft. And all of our materials are guaranteed by British quality standards. So if you are shopping for a gift, and want to ensure that what you are buying is of the best possible quality, take a look at our beautiful collection of memorial jewellery Valentine’s gifts today.
