History of cremation tradition dates back to Ancient times. But in those times cremation was a military procedure and was associated with battlefield honors. And it was in India and in the Indian-influenced cultures of Buddhism and Sikhism that cremation developed into a central and enduring social institution. Cremation became an appropriate vehicle for expressing the ephemerality of bodily life and the eternity of spiritual life. Nowadays the ritual of burning body and keeping the ashes in special urns is very popular all over the world. Along with traditional urns for ashes, cremation jewelry grows in popularity. Although a traditional urn pendant for ashes is a relatively new idea, it's actually inspired by Victorian mourning jewelry. Back in the day, this style of jewelry was very popular; pendants, rings and brooches were often fashioned to contain a loved one's lock of braided hair.
