Colour Options for Ashes Jewellery
The pictures below show your inclusion jewellery colour options.
This is the colour that will be layered within your stone, we usually layer the colour to the back of your inclusion stone ensuring maximum visibility for your precious inclusions. The cremation ashes will add a dappled effect which is visible on top of your chosen colour. If you would prefer not to see the ashes please let us know on the paperwork that is included in your pack.
Ashes are remarkably individual, some can be quite light and coarse, other can be quite dark and fine. If your loved one was heavily tattooed this can sometimes change the colour of the ashes.
Ashes of babies born sleeping or from a pregnancy loss are very powdery and fine and may not be highly visible within your piece.
Each of these colours can be used individually or combined, for example you can choose to have forest pearl combined with iridescent sparkle or other combinations. If you are unsure on your colour choices, please get in touch and we will advise as best as possible.
Colour Options for fur or locks of hair.
The visibility of the hair or fur is dependant of a variety of factors including the colour of the hair or fur, it's porosity, the amount of melanin left in the hair or fur and the background colour choice. For example, soft white fur is very difficult to see no matter which colour you choose, and even dark locks of hair will be nearly invisible on a dark sparkle option.
A good test to see how the hair or fur will look in your piece is to saturate the lock with hairspray. This will give you a good indication as to how the hair will react once cast in your inclusion stone.
We will always try our best to make the lock as visible as possible and advise what will work best.
Colour/Sparkle Options for Breast Milk Jewellery
If you are choosing your sparkle options for breastmilk pieces, we have some popular sparkle additions listed at the bottom (breast milk options a-e). These options will only add sparkle or shimmer without changing the colour of your milk.
You don't have to have anything added and can write in the colour notes 'Natural' when you place your order.
However, you can choose to add any option from our colour board. You can choose to have a pearlescent colour added to change the colour of your milk entirely, or add a sparkle or leaf option for a colour pop.
You can add any of the leaf options for an opalescent look to your milk jewel.
Colour Options for other Inclusions such as fabric or teeth.
We usually advise that you don't add any colours or sparkles if you are having a piece with fabric included. The fabric and pattern will usually add enough colour, and adding any additional detracts from this.
If you have chosen a design that will keep the tooth whole then we suggest keeping your colour options clear, but if you are having the tooth refined into small pieces then you can choose from any option on our colour board.
General Colour Tips
Choose from the sparkle or pearlescent options for a brighter colour.
Iridescent leaf options are multi-tonal, they offer a lovely opal effect when combined with a pearlescent option, or or work wonderfully by themselves for a inclusion stone with a more subtle colour and depth.
Smaller designs such as The Wishbone and The Eternal Hearts rings are better suited to a bright contrating colour.
