When a loved one departs, we hold on tight to what made us connect with them - the moments, shared looks, and kindred feelings. The Aura-Star Desire ring is a testament to the fact that in the face of grief, the underlying feelings of love don’t ever need to fade.
Each Desire ring is made by hand in our UK jewellers’ workshop to your specifications. The central jewel is made from a special resin which we infuse with your loved one’s ashes. It can be made in your choice of many colours. No two pieces we make are quite the same. The jewel is set in sterling silver, sized to fit your hand, and complimented by sparkling cut glass.
We know that the idea of sending your loved one’s ashes anywhere may feel a little scary, so we’ve made the process as easy as possible. When you order, we’ll provide you with a secure kit with which to send us the tiny portion of ashes that we need, along with a ring sizer to get the fit just right. When your cremation jewellery is finished, we’ll deliver it to your doorstep in a plush presentation box for safekeeping.
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.
Some have remarked that true love and desire are undying. We hope that you are able to celebrate an enduring bond with a special person every time you slip this ring onto your finger.

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.
