Throughout human history, metal keepsakes’ durability, elegance, and ability to enwrap emotions and feelings have been continuously valued. Specifically, the solid brass and aluminium metal have emerged as the most desired choices for crafting meaningful memorialisation pieces.

Solid Brass: A Symphony of Grace and Soundness

As a metal alloy that is composed of copper and zinc, brass possesses a warm golden hue that oozes sophistication. This metal’s rich colour and resistance to corrosion ensure that your treasured keepsake that cradles your beloved’s ashes remain resilient and remarkable from the day they were created up to the next generations to come.

Aluminium: The Modish Marvel

Aluminium, on the other hand, is lightweight and versatile. This makes its appearance modern and sleek, which has gained popularity over the years. Its natural silver-white colour confers a voguish canvas for crafting personalised keepsakes. Though lightweight in nature, aluminium can also offer remarkable durability, making it an outstanding choice. 

Preserving Memories with Metal Keepsakes

With the versatility of solid brass and aluminium, they can be utilised in a wide array of memorialisation ways, such as through keepsakes, personalised jewellery, and even memorial plaques and markers.

Caring for Metal Keepsakes: Tips for Longevity

It is important to know how to take care of solid brass and aluminium keepsakes to sustain their beauty as a timeless tribute and honour for your departed beloved. Here are some care tips to take note of:

  1. Regularly and gently clean your keepsakes with a soft cloth to remove dust and fingerprints. A mixture of vinegar and salt can be used for tarnished brass.
  2. You should avoid harsh cleaning agents that can damage the metal's finish. You may stick to using mild soaps and eschew abrasive materials.
  3. When not in use, store your keepsakes in a cool, dry place away when not in use, most especially from direct sunlight to prevent discolouration and oxidation.
  4. Polish your brass keepsakes with a metal polish that is formulated for brass. For aluminium pieces, these may not require frequent polishing.
