Just in Time for the Holidays: The Most Expensive Memorial Jewelry Ever Created?
Memorial jewelry is typically not in the luxury jewelry category…until now.
A Ringuardian™ with over 20 brilliant diamonds set in white gold on a 14-carat gold necklace is an elegant piece custom-designed by the renowned Lester Lampert Jewelers of Chicago for Wilbert Funeral Services, Inc. With a retail price of over $5,000, this one-of-a-kind creation is crafted to hold a wedding or any heirloom ring, keeping the memory of a loved one close to one’s heart.
While the standard Ringuardian is generally chosen as a unique piece at an affordable price, some people have expressed a desire for a luxurious customized piece that is truly special.
“We’ve designed thousands of jewelry pieces for discriminating customers,” said Lester Lampert, owner of Lester Lampert Jewelers, “but in working with Wilbert Funeral Services have come to appreciate that people want to treasure memories of their loved ones – and there are some who wish for one-of-a-kind, sophisticated pieces such as this custom-designed Ringuardian.”
The Ringuardian is unique in that it broadens the market for funeral professionals to anyone who attends visitations, as it holds any keepsake ring and transforms it into a necklace without damaging the ring. Many people own a keepsake ring but keep it stuck in a drawer, out of sight, because while they don’t want to part with it, they also don’t know what to do with it. The Ringuardian is the solution.
Wilbert’s jewelry designer can custom-design a Ringuardian for your families from any precious metal such as white or yellow gold or platinum to suit a particular style. The type and size of the jewels are left to the individual, using diamonds or other jewels either acquired specifically for the Ringuardian or re-set from another piece of jewelry.
For information on the Ringuardian and supporting displays and collateral, talk to your local Wilbert Licensee.
