Sealing Cremation Jewelry
Most cremation jewelry pieces are designed with a secure seal. However, if you anticipate the cremation pendant will come in contact with water, then the use of non-water soluble glue is encouraged for the sealing of the cremation keepsake. Also consider that moisture can accumulate in or around the threads. This too can slowly cause the pendant to become unglued.
Sealing the pendant is done simply by applying a very small portion of adhesive (such as super glue or epoxy) to the cremation jewelry. The adhesive should first be placed on the threads of the cremation jewelry instead of the actual bale or threaded screw. Since the bale or screw is typically a small piece, it can be difficult to handle with adhesive. For this reason, we also recommend placing the adhesive inside of the threads first.
Individual preferences will always vary. Some family members may not feel that they are capable of sealing the keepsake urn themselves---or may simply not wish to do so. In these circumstances, it is quite common to seek the assistance of the funeral services professional helping the family with the funeral services. A jeweler or other similar reputable establishment may also be called upon to assist the family member in the sealing the jewelry urn. Most funeral services or other professionals will be happy to assist you at little or no charge.
