7 of Our Most Beautiful Urns to Keep Forever


Having a loved one’s ashes with you at home can be a brilliant source of comfort, reminding you every day of the life you shared together. But settling on a permanent urn for those ashes can be a struggle – especially since there are so many different options to choose from.

Not to worry. For those who need a little inspiration, we’ve picked out seven stunning urns that you’ll be proud to keep in your home forever. Let’s take a look …


Looking for something special? Every Blue Crystal Urn is different

The complex and almost luminous swirl of colours on this Blue Crystal Cremation Urn are a result of raku firing, a traditional Japanese technique that translates as ‘happiness in the accident’.

Why? In a raku firing, the urn is taken out of the kiln red-hot and plunged into ignitable materials, creating a different reaction in the glaze each time. This means that every Blue Crystal Urn is as unique as the person it’s chosen for.

The intricately engraved Banbury Brass Heart is a perfect keepsake

A keepsake urn is a smaller resting place for ashes, ideal if you are perhaps sharing ashes with family members or keeping a small amount after a scattering.


The Banbury Brass Heart Keepsake Urn is the perfect example. At 7.5cms across, it’s a comforting weight in your palm – but it truly stands out for its intricately hand cast design. Engraved with a delicate pattern of intertwining leaves, it is a simple but powerful way to celebrate someone who will stay in your own heart forever.

Enjoy light and comfort with the Christ Cremation Keepsake Urn

This soothing keepsake urn is a thoughtful symbol of how your loved one continues to bring light into your life. It includes a small candle, which, when lit, will cast a warm and comforting glow in any room. Each carefully moulded rosebud-like urn is fired at exactly 1,200°C, helping to ensure its longevity and bestowing a lustrous finish.

Celebrate a true nature lover with the Pebbles Urn

Looking for something a little different? This ceramic sculpture echoes the smooth contours of pebbles worn down by the tides, making it a wonderfully tactile alternative to more traditional urns. This natural feel makes the Pebbles Cremation Urn the ideal tribute to a loved one who spent their life taking pleasure in the outdoors.

Meanwhile, a threaded secure lid will keep your loved one’s ashes safe and sound.

Combining a classic shape with an abstract glaze that’s different on every piece, the timeless design makes the Blue Splash Urn the perfect permanent home for a loved one’s ashes.

Hand-blown to order from high quality Bohemia Crystal, a Multi Twist Sphere Keepsake Urn is a completely unique tribute to your loved one.

The intricately swirled design conceals an inner chamber for up to 6 cubic inches of ashes, making it a discreet, charming alternative to traditional cremation urns.
