We’re seeing a variety of urn style choices this week with keepsake urns. Materials range from metal, marble, and sculpted resin.
Ladies love the pink:
And the purple urns.
An important consideration when selecting a cremation urn is the size. Often, families will buy based on price and neglect to check the specs, and are disappointed when the urn arrives and it’s too small. The keepsakes are designed to hold a tiny bit of ashes, not the full amount. Jewelry holds an even smaller portion, trace amounts. This size is often used to retain a small amount of the cremains after an ash scattering ceremony or burial and sometimes come with boxes or a velvet bag for storage. Many of the small vase shapes are replicas of the larger sizes and can be purchased to contain all of the ashes of an adult if needed. If you are unsure about what size you need, check with your funeral professional to find out what is the best choice for your needs.
