In a few simple, satisfying steps, RemembeRing helps to ease the grief when a beloved pet dies.
After separating the Center Token from the Outer Ring...
On the left: The Outer Ring is transformed into a keepsake photo frame for display. This part is for Holding On.
On the right: The Center Token is blank on the back for a farewell message. This part is for Letting Go.
Here are suggestions for the Token:
❤️ Cremate or bury it with the deceased
❤️ Place it in the cremains vessel or on the grave
❤️ Tuck it in the soil in a favorite location of your pet, such as yard, trail, garden
❤️ Include it in a memory box or on a tribute altar with other keepsakes
❤️ Burn it in a firesafe container during a memorial ceremony
❤️ Keep it in a dresser, nightstand, or desk drawer
❤️ Put it in the sleeve behind the photo or back in the center of the ring, covering the photo like a locket
❤️ Place it in another special location that is personally significant to you or your pet.
RemembeRing celebrates the love within the heartbreak of pet loss
They are dear friends and close family members, so it hurts when our beloved pets die. There is a special place in our hearts dedicated to them and RemembeRing honors the cherished bonds we'll always share.
Whether a companion animal passes suddenly or their death is anticipated, our grief is unique and complex. We often feel helpless and overwhelmed, yet society tends to minimize how hard it is and expects us to move on swiftly. The truth is that all of us deserve patience and compassion. RemembeRing is here to bring comfort as we grieve and heal at our own pace.
With broad appeal across faiths, cultures and ages (3+ years), RemembeRing validates the importance of our furry friends. A universal mourning tradition that supports saying goodbye to a beloved pet is long overdue—and RemembeRing is just that.
They're easy and meaningful to make
RemembeRings are created by following the same essential process, either in the company of others or solo.
Once completed, the keepsake frame is for Holding On — this part is for you. Display and enjoy it as an expression of your enduring love.
The token is for Letting Go — this part is for saying goodbye to your beloved pet.
STEP 1. Begin by removing the disc from the panel and separate the center token from the outer ring.
STEP 2. Write or draw your farewell message to your pet on the back of the center token.
STEP 3. Trim a favorite photo and insert it into the sleeve. Include another memento if you’d like.
STEP 4. Attach the sleeve using the adhesive strips and add the hanger and/or magnet.
The Origin Story
A Love of Pets from the Very Beginning
My name is Emily Piccirillo and I’m RemembeRing’s Founder and CPL (Chief Pet Lover).
I was a lucky kid because my family included lots of pets — dogs, cats, chickens, ducks, rabbits, turtles, birds, fish, guinea pigs, salamanders, a racoon, an iguana— you name it! They were part of my daily life. My formative years taught me so many lessons about life and death, and how to care deeply and adore another being, even one with a very short existence.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “When Bella was dying, I didn’t imagine there was something that could help our whole family grieve but our RemembeRing gives us lots of comfort. We miss Bella every single day but then we look at her picture and smile and reminisce together. We feel a little better each time. She knows we still love her and always will." - Sue D., Mother of Three
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “I do all I can to support clients when it’s time to say goodbye to their furry family members. Professionals like me who provide end-of-life care value effective ways to ease the heartache – that’s why we give RemembeRings to the families we serve. They allow clients to openly mourn, which is essential to gaining peace of mind with such a big loss.” - Leslie M., Home Vet
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “This was such a sweet and thoughtful gift to receive when Alfie died. I love knowing that my message stays with him forever while I get to keep his photo and tag in the frame that surrounded the token with my final words. It reminds me that our hearts are connected for eternity.” - Brad P., Pet Dad
