Why are there different sizes of urns?
Cremation urns come in different sizes for different reasons. Most common is, an individual cremation urn for ashes. The size of an individual cremation urn is suitable for storing the ashes of one person. Sometimes several members of a family / relatives want to keep part of the ashes and the ashes are split into several smaller sized urns, This smaller sized urn is also known as a mini urn or Keepsake. An ash jewelry is the smallest size urn, these are special pieces of jewelry that have an inner chamber where a small part of the ashes can be placed.
Cremation jewelry has become very popular in recent years, the ashes are worn close to the heart and this has a valuable symbolic meaning for many.
