Choosing the Right Urn

or Keepsake…

The opportunity to choose a treasured keepsake presents itself only once - the comfort a treasured keepsake offers lasts a lifetime.

The choice of cremation gives you, the family, an opportunity to select an urn or keepsake that serves as a dignified final resting place for your loved ones cremated remains. Treasured Keepsakes offer a variety of cremation urns, keepsake urns and keepsake pendants from ornate designs to more traditional or simple designs.

A cremation urn or keepsake is a memorial or tribute to your loved one. It is a remembrance or celebration as unique as the life it celebrates. An urn is not only to keep cremated remains, it can hold a personal object such as a photograph, a lock of hair, anything that is a personal reminder of your loved one.

Some families have made the decision to scatter all of the cremated remains and later regretted not having anything tangible of the deceased. This is where the option of a treasured keepsake can add comfort at a later stage. By keeping some of the cremated remains in an urn or keepsake pendant we hope that you will have a treasured keepsake of your loved one to hold dear.

The traditional options for the cremated remains are:-

  • You may choose to bury the cremated remains, usually in a columbarium wall at the cemetery or in a grave. You may also keep a small portion of the cremated remains in a keepsake urn or a piece of keepsake jewellery at home.
  • You may decide to keep all of the cremated remains in an urn at home.
  • Scatter the cremated remains, in a special place, keeping a small amount for a keepsake urn or piece of keepsake jewellery for yourself and maybe your family members.

  • Choosing the memorial piece is important and does require some thought. You should firstly consider where you plan to keep the urn, the type of material you like and whether you would prefer a traditional or more contemporary design. Also, would your family members like their own keepsake?

    If you plan to display the urn at home, you will want to choose a material that best fits the surroundings of where you will place the urn. There are many urn styles, shapes and materials available, but the main ones are Brass, Wood and Eco/Biodegradable Urns. My keepsake jewellery is available in a variety of finishes.

    Brass is a very durable and workable material and some of the engravings available are exceptional. No two urns look identical due to the unique characteristics in the material, and due to the hand finished art work. Wood urns come in many designs, the look and feel of a hardwood urn is something that only this material can give, and the rich warm colours will age over time.

    The urns and keepsakes range in price from €30 to €215. The keepsake jewellery is available in a variety of finishes including Pewter, Sterling Silver, Stainless Steel and Titanium. The pendants may be worn or displayed in a glass dome. Our prices start from €65. Please feel free to call us to discuss your options.

    We know that this is a very sad and difficult time for you and we hope that this information has helped you. If you have any further questions whatsoever please do not hesitate to contact us and we will be happy to help you in any way that we can.
