Ash or a loved one’s hair around your neck? More and more people feel comfortable with the mourning jewel | Nina

Kris Jenner, 66, recently made an eye-catching remark on the reality series ‘The Kardashians’. Mothers want their children to carry her ashes with them if she dies. At first glance, this may seem a little sinister, but such sad jewelry is increasingly in demand. “When we lose a loved one, we want to hold them close and preferably in a discreet way.”

Kris Jenner, mother of the famous Kim Kardashian, Kylie Jenner and co-stars recently underwent hip surgery. This seemed to make her think. In The Kardashians, the reality series about her family, she said she wants to be cremated when she dies. Most of all, she wants her ashes to be used to make necklaces for her six children.

The idea behind it is beautiful, that something tangible can provide great relief after a loss. With a little ash or hair, a special engraving or a stone, the jewel becomes a very personal keepsake that tells the story of your loved one that you should miss. These Belgian designers respond to this with a lot of sympathy, as they create jewelry to make the grieving process more bearable.

When psychiatrist and writer Uus Knops asked jewelry designer Veronique Snyart to create a piece of jewelry that would make the loss tangible and open to discussion, she immediately said “yes.” The result is a jewel of comfort: a round pendant engraved with a personal message on the inside. “With the gem of comfort you hold your loss close to you. Unobtrusive, and at the same time inviting people who get to know him to start a conversation about him.”

“Together with Brussels-based jewelry brand Tiroir de Lou, we propose a subtle and refreshing mourning gem: a dash of light for everyone who misses someone. A chain like a gold rim that captures the echo of love around your neck.” The Jewel is part of a comforting poem written by Melanie of Bob’s Studio about imperfection. The title of the poetic piece was ‘Echo’, then these four lowercase letters were hammered into pendants gently swinging side by side or one behind the other on a string. “Slightly hidden, yet always visible enough to reflect light, this necklace secretly tells a story that you hold close to your heart.”

More information can be found at Baba’s studio. The contract price is 148 euros.
