The Aura-Star Ardour ring features classical, masculine styling to encapsulate and protect a tender memory inside. When a loved one passes, our passion and ardour can remain for so very long. It’s only natural to want to cherish those feelings as the passage of time eases the accompanying pain.
The Ardour ring is created by hand in our UK workshop by a handpicked team of skilled jewellers. We’ll send you a secure kit, which you can use to provide us with a small sample of your loved one’s ashes for suspension within its central resin “stone”. When this delicate process is complete, the stone is polished and set securely in a solid sterling silver band, before being delivered to your hands in a smart presentation box.
Each Ardour ring is made to fit the hand of the client. We provide you with a ring measurement kit, and offer customisation options to make the finished piece uniquely yours - there’s a range of many colours to choose from.
Note: This ring is Rhodium-Plated. Rhodium is one of the rarest precious metals on Earth. We use it to add a protective layer over selected sterling silver jewellery, giving the silver an extra depth of shine and protection from tarnishing. It forms an extremely hard protective barrier, making the piece far more scratch-resistant, which is also good news for those who suffer from allergies to silver or nickel.
Your unique Ardour ring offers a way of preserving your loved one both physically and emotionally during one of the hardest times in your life. We would be honoured to ease your passage on this difficult path.

As soon as we receive your order, we’ll send you a special kit. In it, you’ll find instructions on how to safely send us a small amount of your loved one’s ashes, and packaging to keep the ashes secure on their journey. You’ll also be able to double-check and confirm your choice of colour.
The kit contains:
- A small spoon to help you scoop just enough ashes.
- A small labelled bag to put the ashes into.
- A ring sizer (if applicable).
- A form to confirm your order.
- A Freepost padded envelope, to ensure a safe journey.
All you have to do is place just a tiny amount of ashes in the sealable bag, place it in the Freepost envelope with the completed order form, and post it to us. Then our artisans will start the delicate process of making your bespoke pendant.
As soon as the jewellery is ready, we will send it to you by courier - together with any unused ashes.
We understand that you will be anxiously awaiting your precious piece, but please allow us 7 days to make your jewellery. However, if there is a urgent need, we do offer an express service.
Please note that as every piece we create is unique, and made by hand only for your needs, we cannot accept returns or refunds. We also recommend that all our customers keep back a small amount of ashes, in case the item is lost at a later date.
Additionally, as each piece is hand-made there may be small differences in colour and finish - that's what makes it as unique as the individual it will serve.
