Hard and Unbreakable Metal Cremation Urns for the Last Tribute
Metal has long been a popular material to create cremation urns for many reasons. The strength that metal, such as brass or steel, offers brings peace of mind that the ashes will forever be protected, while the affordability of most types of metal allows for the large variety in the production of these urns. Additionally, the affordability can make obtaining an exquisite urn that can be both displayed in a memorial service and also interred, either directly or in a cremation urn vault, all the easier. With that said, it is no wonder that metal cremation urn section is one of our largest and most diverse of cremation vessels, rivaled only by the wooden category, and offers pieces that are truly as affordable as they are exquisite.
There are many ways to incorporate a metal cremation urn into virtually any memorial or ceremony. These urns are, as mentioned before, available in a variety of shapes and styles, and feature many different themes such as distinct textures, beautiful floral etchings, and even religious figures. One of our most popular designs is actually appropriate for both religious and non-religious ceremonies, as it shows beautifully abstract birds in flight; which can represent anything from the soul departing it's earthly shackles, to a remembrance of a loved one who truly enjoyed their natural surroundings. Many also have matching keepsake urns, which are wonderful for families who are scattering or sharing the remains, and would like to keep a small portion for themselves. These vessels also offer a large variety of options for personalization, and can accommodate anything from a personal engraving or even scene etching, to a beautiful and simple engraving on a plaque. And for the urns that do not have a flat surface to accommodate an adhered plaque, there are options of engraving medallions, which can hang off of a chain that would be placed around the neck of the vase-shaped vessel.
It is undeniable that a metal cremation urn can create a distinct and unforgettable tribute to suite nearly any personality. With the large variety and options available for these elegant pieces, there is sure to be an urn that will capture the spirit as well as become a dignified remembrance of a loved one. As Helen Keller once said, "So long as the memory of certain beloved friends lives in my heart, I say that life is good." A beautiful cremation urn will truly create a dignified final remembrance for all to hold dear.
"This was a sudden shocking death of my brother...I live in Oregon, he was in Ariz. When his son picked up his ashes he
saw similar small urns, which neither of us were familiar with. He asked if I wanted one, as he was getting one and
was spreading the rest of the ashes at sentimental sites throughout the country. I found your site on line, had never had to deal with "ashes" before and frankly found the idea of a large urn on a mantle unsettling. Keepsake urns were the answer. As my nephew said "once I spread the ashes there will be nothing of my Dad left". That convinced me I too needed a keepsake urn, found your website, and actually ended up paying $27 for the same urn my nephew bought at the mortuary for well over $100. I had the urn shipped to his address in Las Vegas, he transferred some ashes in my new urn and shipped it on to me. I only received it yesterday and was astonished at just how beautiful, simply yet classic the urn is. Far from being "creepy", I immediately cherish this keepsake of my last close family member. Thank you so much for your elegant product, the quick and excellent service and having the ability to buy it on line from Oregon then send it to Vegas then finally have it arrive at my home in Oregon helped tremendously in this agonizing situation.
I will treasure this beautiful urn always, and thank you again for everything. Deborah Kimberlin" James Kimberlin, Jr.
