Answer to The Top 10 Questions Asked About Cremation Urns

This post answers the most common questions about cremation urns and jewelry.

What is Cremation Urn?

A cremation urn is a container - vessel, box, capsule, etc. - used to store cremated remains. Most cremation urns are made of different types of materials such as wood, ceramic, metal, or plastic. Nowadays, cremation urns are readily available online and come with customizable options. You can customize the style, shape, color, and engraving on your selected urn.

Are there any types of Cremation urns?

An array of cremation urns is available to choose the best suitable for your loved one. Based on the material, size, theme, and resting place, you can find an elaborated choice of urns for cremation ashes online, ranging from -

● Metal cremation urns for ashes
● Marble memorial urns for ashes
● Wood cremation urns for ashes
● Cremation jewelry for ashes
● Keepsake urns for ashes
● Companion urns for ashes
● Scattering memorial urns for ashes
● Biodegradable urns for ashes
● Pet cremation urns

What size urn do I need?

Refer to the following guide to get a rough idea of the size of the urn you need. Though, the volume of remains may vary.

How do I open my urn?

The method for accessing the ashes section varies on the urn types. Most ceramic urns feature a threaded lid, whereas many metal urns have a top plate that snaps shut or a bottom plate that opens and is fastened with screws, similar to wooden urns. Cremains are placed into some marble urns via a threaded stopper. The assembly and deposition of the ashes differ significantly across biodegradable urns. However, guidelines are provided.

Can I bury my urn?

Burying a cremation urn directly into the ground is usually not recommended with a burial vault. Although, biodegradable urns are suitable for burying or releasing into a water body.

Are urns waterproof?

Cremation urns made from materials such as marble, granite, stainless steel, or ceramics are waterproof. Along with being waterproof, these cremation urns are easy to maintain. They are durable, frost-resistant, and hardly affected by sunlight, cold, heat, or rain.

Can I travel with my urn?

You can travel with cremated remains in your carry-on or checked luggage.

You must have a death certificate with you to comply with the rules. Please be informed that carrying luggage requires all security checks, and the sealed box or urn will be x-rayed at the airport screening point. The urn might not be permitted to pass the security check if it is made of a material that hinders the x-ray screener from seeing what is within.

How to fill cremation jewelry?

Filling cremation jewelry is no rocket science. But, it can sometimes get challenging to fill cremation jewelry because of its small openings, particularly in rings and necklaces. Below we have mentioned five easy steps to guide you to fill your cremation jewelry.

Collect the cremation jewelry and the ashes, then set them on a clean work surface.

Find the threaded screw under the bail, remove it, or covertly attach it to the cremation jewelry.

Put the funnel's tip within the cremation jewelry's opening. Gently place the cremated remains into the cremation jewelry by tapping; if necessary, use the filing sticks to force the remains through.

To ensure the cremation jewelry wasn't overfilled, reinstall the screw and tighten it in the opening.

Apply glue to the opening threads and the screw's threads immediately after removing the screw. Reinstall the screw right away and tighten it while removing any extra sealant from the cremation's surface.

How much ashes can I fit into my cremation jewelry?

Most cremation jewelry is designed to hold a pinch (⅛ teaspoon) of cremated remains. Some cremation jewelry, such as cylinders, will hold slightly more as the shape allows it.

Is cremation jewelry the same as memorial jewelry?

Cremation jewelry holds a small amount of ashes of the person you want to memorialize. In comparison, memorial jewelry can be created with or without the use of a loved one's ashes. Many people opt for memorial jewelry as a way to honor the memories of their loved one's, even if they are no longer with them in the physical form.
