"I was surprised by the urns I saw in funeral homes when I was looking for my parents. They were extremely expensive and I thought they looked quite "cheap" and frankly, tacky... more like brass than bronze. So I spent a lot of time looking at decorative urns not specifically for cremations and bought one to try out. It couldn't be sealed well. So finally I found "Sarcophagus" and ordered one in the bronze with black contrast and one that was gold plated. Both were nice, but I liked the gold one best hands down! Returned the bronze one, no problem (unused, of course!!) and bought a second gold one. A nice surprise, when the second one arrived, it was a nice, paler, slightly rose gold, where the first was a more "bold" gold. So the rose gold was for my mother and the more masculine one for my father. Couldn't have found anything I would have liked better! Customer service was unbelievable!! So nice and helpful! Thanks everybody for your help."
