5 Beautiful Pet Memorial Ideas for Remembering Your Furry Friend

Losing a pet is one of life’s most heart-wrenching experiences. It can be just as difficult losing a pet as any loved one; at the end of the day, they become members of the family and our best friends. Grieving the loss of a pet looks different to everybody, but one way you can find comfort and solace is through pet memorial jewellery.

In today’s blog, we’ll be exploring 5 beautiful pet memorial ideas that will help you remember your fur baby in a heartfelt, personal way. From thoughtful pet memorial gifts to unique keepsakes like paw print jewellery and nose print jewellery, we hope these ideas will become touching tributes that immortalise the special bond you have with your furry companion.

Pet Ashes into Jewellery

After losing a pet and receiving their ashes, it can be difficult to know what’s the right thing to do with them. Many find comfort in keeping the ashes in a special urn kept close by. Others prefer to scatter the remains of their furry friend in their favourite spot, and some prefer to turn their pet ashes into jewellery.

Pet ashes jewellery is a unique and heartfelt way to keep your beloved companion close, no matter where you go. It involves carefully incorporating a small amount of your pet’s remains into colourful resin which is then captured within beautifully crafted jewellery.

Here at Inscripture, we specialise in creating bespoke pet ashes jewellery and offer a wide range of designs and styles to suit your preferences. Our elegant dog ashes necklaces, pet ashes pendants, ashes bracelets and ashes charms can be customised to perfectly reflect the personality of your fur baby. Choose from different resin colours and metals, including sterling silver, gold and rose gold.

Self-Fill Pet Ashes Jewellery

Another personal and comforting way to memorialise your pet is to design your own self-fill pet ashes jewellery. This unique jewellery allows you to fill a small compartment with a portion of your pet ashes, meaning you’ll always have their remains with you. Included with every piece is a funnel kit and clear instructions so filling the pet memorial bracelet or pendant is made simple and easy.

Our self-fill ashes jewellery collection includes a variety of elegant designs, from bracelets to pendants, rings and charms, all crafted with care to help you cherish your pet’s memory forever. Many of our pet memorial jewellery designs can also be engraved for further personalisation.

Paw Print Jewellery

Another incredible way to preserve the memory of a beloved pet is through paw print jewellery. Every dog or cat’s paw print is as unique as a human fingerprint, making these pieces not just a keepsake but a personalised tribute to your furry friend’s identity. At Inscripture, we offer a hassle-free inkless print kit which makes capturing your pet’s paw print simple and stress free.

Once we’ve received your pet’s paw print, our skilled artisans will engrave the image onto a variety of pet memorial jewellery pieces including paw print necklaces, paw print bracelets and paw print charms. This process allows you to curate a tangible reminder of your pet and find a sense of connection and comfort during times of loss.

Dog Nose Print Jewellery

Like our paw print jewellery, our dog nose print jewellery provides a way to cherish the memory of your beloved pet. Once again, you can capture the unique print of your pup’s nose using our inkless print kit and our master craftsmen will engrave it onto a variety of jewellery designs including dog nose print necklaces, bracelets and charms.

By wearing or gifting dog nose print jewellery, you can not only celebrate the individuality of your pet, but we hope you’ll also find comfort and solace in keeping their memory close. And hey, we won’t judge if you can’t resist giving your dog nose print pendant a little boop now and then—it’s a reminder of the adorable quirks that made your pet so dear to you.

Pet Photo Jewellery

Finally, have you considered honouring your pet using your favourite photo them? Whether it’s a photo of them alone, or you both together, pet photo jewellery is a beautiful way of honouring your pet and their unique personality, becoming a comforting reminder of the joy they brought when they entered your life. At Inscripture, we can create personalised pet jewellery that combines your pet’s photo with other features such as their pawprint, nose print or birthstone.

It’s our mission to design pet memorial jewellery that provides solace and connection; to create beautiful designs that preserve the bond you have with your beloved pet. For help memorialising your pet, explore our range of pet memorial gifts and jewellery on the Inscripture website here.

July Birthstone Jewellery

July… it’s a month marking the very height of summer. It’s often filled with warm, endless evenings, beach trips, barbeques and festivals. For those across the Atlantic, it’s also a month of freedom as people celebrate Independence Day with parades, picnics, and dazzling firework displays. It’s also a month to celebrate those born in July, and what better way to honour them than with some stunning July birthstone jewellery.

What is July’s Birthstone?

When you think about it, there really is no better gemstone to embody July than the Ruby. It’s fiery and energetic spirit is matched by July’s own warmth and vitality. The stone is best known for its vibrant red hues, which can range from a deep crimson to a lighter shade of pink.

Its colour means it is often associated with passion, love and courage, while others believe Ruby to bring health, wealth and wisdom, protecting the wearer from any negative energies. Rubies are also celebrated for their impressive levels of durability, seconded only by diamonds. They boast a unique fluorescence that gives the impression the stone is lit from within, glowing much like the summer sun of July.

The History & Lore of Ruby

The July birthstone was first discovered around 2,000 years ago in Myanmar (formerly Burma) and has been treasured by various cultures ever since. In ancient lore, it was seen as an embodiment of the sun’s warmth and power, bestowing health, wealth, wisdom and love upon its owners. Some cultures also believe ruby to predict danger and cure inflammatory disease.

One of the most famous Rubies is the “Sunrise Ruby,” a 25.59-carat gemstone renowned for its vivid pigeon blood colour.  It was found in Myanmar in the Mogok Valley, a region famous for producing some of the world’s finest rubies. The stone fetched a record-breaking price at auction, selling for 30.42 million at a Sotheby’s auction in Geneva in May 2015. This makes the “Sunrise Ruby” one of the most valued gemstones in the world, and thus July birthstone jewellery has become coveted by many.

Ruby’s Symbolism: The Meanings Behind July’s Birthstone

The fiery personality of Ruby is steeped in symbolism. Often referred to as the “king of gemstones”, the rich red hues are often associated with passion, love and bravery. Ruby jewellery is favoured for romantic gestures because of this, often gifted on Valentine’s Day or anniversaries. Throughout history, the July birthstone has also been linked with courage and protection. In the past, warriors would wear rubies because they believed it made them invincible in battle, while others thought the stone could warn its wearer of impending danger by darkening in colour.

Styling Your Ruby Jewellery

July birthstone jewellery can be some of the most fun to style. Given its associations with passion and love, ruby earrings and pendants are perfect for romantic dates, adding a touch of allure and sensuality to an outfit. It’s also an ideal gemstone to wear when you need some courage or protection. Choose a July birthstone necklace or bracelet for important meetings, presentations or maybe even a first date! It can serve as a powerful talisman for boosting confidence.

Caring For Your July Birthstone Jewellery

Like with all our birthstone jewellery, our July collection should be given some TLC every now and then. We recommend cleaning your jewellery with a gentle solution of warm water and mild soap. You can use a soft brush to remove some of the harder to see dirt and oils, and then a soft towel to dry it off. Avoid using any harsh chemicals that could damage the gemstone and setting, and for extra protection, store your July birthstone jewellery away from other designs in a soft pouch or lined jewellery box to prevent scratches.

If you’re on the hunt for some beautiful July birthstone jewellery, we hope you’ll consider Inscripture. We have a stunning selection of July birthstone jewellery that is designed to celebrate your individuality and the magic of the fiery red ruby.

The History & Lore of Diamond

Diamonds were first discovered in India around the 4th century BCE, where they immediately became valued for their hardness and beauty. It wasn’t long before these rare gemstones made their way across the world and became symbols of wealth and status among the elite. One of the earliest uses of diamonds in jewellery was by royalty in medieval Europe who adorned themselves in the April birthstone to signify power and invincibility.

Many civilisations also believed diamonds to possess magical properties. In ancient Greek, diamonds were thought to be the tears of the gods and splinters from falling stars. It was also strongly believed during the Renaissance period that diamonds could strengthen the bond between married couples. This belief contributed to the tradition we still see today, of giving diamond engagement rings and wedding rings to symbolise an unbreakable bond.

What to Write in a Birthday Card for Someone Terminally Ill

As bereavement specialists, we understand how challenging it can be to find the right words when a loved one is facing a terminal illness. Traditionally, birthdays are occasions filled with joy and celebration, but for someone facing a serious illness, the day can take on a new meaning. This blog is designed to offer some guidance on what to write in a birthday card for someone terminally ill, one that acknowledges the present reality, but still celebrates their life and the connection you share.

Understand the Context

Before you begin writing a birthday card for someone terminally ill, it’s important to consider the context of your relationship and the recipient’s current situation. Consider their personality, sense of humour, and emotional state. This awareness will help you strike the right tone, and help you decide whether you can afford to add a touch of light-heartedness, or whether you should focus more on being reflective and understanding.

Emphasise Your Connection and Your Memories

It can be the simplest and most heartfelt words that go a long way in conveying your appreciation and love for someone. When it comes to writing a birthday card for someone terminally ill, let them know how much they mean to you and give them some examples of how they have enriched your life. Be specific about some of the qualities you admire and give examples of moments they made a difference. Anecdotes and genuine affirmations like this will really help add value to a birthday message for someone terminally ill.

Acknowledge Their Strength and Courage

For someone fighting a difficult battle, it takes a lot of strength and courage to celebrate a birthday. So why not affirm that. Validate their experience and tell them just how much you admire their resilience. Again, use specific examples of their bravery and determination and emphasise how they’ve helped to inspire you and others. Words like this can be a huge source of comfort and will help to reinforce their strength during challenging times.

Suggest Specific Offers of Help

We have no doubt your loved one is inundated with thoughtful offers of help, but why not be the one to suggest some specific ways you can support them. Rather than simply saying, “I’m here if you need anything”, why not suggest you’ll help with some specific chores. Consider what they might be struggling with and offer help that will make their daily life more manageable. Think about practical needs such as running errands, providing meals or offering transportation to medical appointments. Your willingness to assist in specific ways will make it easier for them to accept your help.

Avoiding Clichés and Empty Platitudes

Finally, when writing a birthday card for someone terminally ill, consider avoiding clichés and empty platitudes. Phrases like “everything happens for a reason” and “stay strong” can feel dismissive and may not provide the comfort you intend. Instead, it might play down their experience and make their complex emotions and challenges feel pushed to the side. Instead, focus on writing a genuine, heartfelt message that acknowledges their strengths, journey and the special connection you share.

Examples of What to Write in a Birthday Card for Someone Terminally Ill

Even with this advice, we understand if you’re still struggling to craft the right message. It’s a delicate task and one that requires thought. Don’t be afraid to take some time to think about what you want to say before putting pen to paper. In the meantime, here’s some examples to inspire your words:

“Happy Birthday! Reflecting on all the wonderful times we’ve shared brings me so much joy. Your laughter and kindness has been a light in my life, and I cherish every moment we spent together. I hope today brings you peace and happiness, knowing how deeply you are loved and appreciated.”

“Happy Birthday. I want you to know that your strength and grace in the face of challenges are truly remarkable. The way you handle everything with such calmness and determination is an inspiration to everyone. I’ve seen you face difficult times with a resilience that leaves me in awe, and your positive spirit never ceases to amaze me. Today, I celebrate not just your birthday, but the incredible person you are and the profound impact you’ve had on my life.”

Final Thoughts

What to write in a birthday card to someone terminally ill isn’t an easy task, so don’t put yourself down if you’re still struggling to find the words. Ultimately, just remember the message is an opportunity for you to share your love and appreciation for that person. Emphasise your connection, make reference to specific memories and more importantly, express your love and gratitude for the memories they’ve given you.

At Inscripture, we understand the importance of these moments and the power of heartfelt words. Remember, the most important thing is to speak from the heart. Your genuine love and care will shine through and provide comfort and connection during a difficult time.

How is Ashes Jewellery Made?

We believe that ashes jewellery is not merely a creation but an artistic tribute that intertwines emotion with craft. Our team of master craftsmen use a combination of modern technology and traditional techniques to delicately blend a small amount of ashes with vibrant resin in your chosen colour to create a bespoke piece of memorial jewellery.

Through a meticulous process, we combine the resin with your chosen cremation ashes, hair or fur and carefully apply it layer by layer. This delicate, but worthy, process delivers a glossy stone-like appearance, with the ashes suspended within the resin like 3D floating flakes.

The History & Lore of Amethyst

The story of Amethyst is as rich and vibrant as the gem itself. It dates back to ancient times when the February birthstone was prized for its beauty and mystical properties. The Ancient Greeks associated the purple gem with the god of wine, Dionysus, and strongly assumed it could ward off intoxication—a belief that led to the creation of goblets carved from the gemstone to prevent drunkenness during feasts and celebrations.

Amethyst has also been used by various cultures for its purported healing and protective qualities while the Ancient Egyptians and medieval Christianity have revered the stone as a symbol of divine connection and inner peace.

Amethyst’s Symbolism: The Meanings Behind February’s Birthstone

It seems some of the past attributes assigned to Amethyst are evident today. The lilac stone is still believed to have protective and purification properties, shielding those around it from negative energy. It is thought to promote a sense of harmony and balance in one’s surrounding and as such, is commonly worn as jewellery or placed in the home to promote a positive atmosphere.

Many also choose to wear Amethyst jewellery to sooth the mind and calm the spirit. It is often used in meditation practices to promote relaxation and mental clarity, warding off feelings of stress and anxiety. Whether you simply wear Amethyst as part of February birthstone jewellery to celebrate your birth month, or you wear it for its list of beneficial properties, you’ll no doubt feel grounded and secure amidst life’s chaos.

Styling Your Amethyst Jewellery

Wearing Amethyst jewellery is a fantastic way of embracing the peaceful and positive energy of February’s birthstone. Whether you’re heading to a yoga session, a meditation class, or a calming dinner date, Amethyst pieces can enhance your sense of tranquillity and well-being.

Imagine wearing a stunning Amethyst pendant with a flowy bohemian dress for a relaxed, free-spirited look, perfect for casual gatherings or weekend outings. For more formal occasions, like a business meeting or a wedding, a pair of elegant Amethyst earrings or a delicate February birthstone necklace can add a touch of sophistication and promote a calm and focused mindset.

Caring For Your February Birthstone Jewellery

Amethyst is a durable gem, but it still requires some care. We recommend cleaning your Amethyst jewellery with warm, soapy water and a soft brush, before patting it dry with a clean cloth. Avoid exposing it to harsh chemicals, extreme temperatures, or prolonged sunlight, which can fade its vibrant colour.
