is nothing in the world more tragic than the untimely death of a
child. We hope to help you find a small measure of comfort in
the choice of a very special memorial urn with which to
lovingly commemorate the brief and precious life that has been lost.
Small and Medium Sphere Urns:
The Small Sphere infant urns are meant for an infant up to 12 lbs, and the Medium Sphere urns are sized for a small
child up to either 30 lbs (the Reflections Spheres, which reflect a starscape of lights when placed near a sunny window) or 35 lbs (the Iridescent Spheres, which are shown in a cherry wood stand). Any of these urns will serve as a beautiful memorial that is hand blown in art glass, with various shimmering or reflective finishes. A luminous spherical infant urn
can offer some solace when cradling it in one’s hands, for
moments of loving reflection, and can be helpful as part of the grieving and healing
Each of these extraordinary small urns has a brass Closure
that has been highly polished to a mirror finish for engraving upon.
The Closure is made in solid brass that is threaded to the sphere, and provides a space for engraving name, dates, and a
few meaningful words, to create a beautiful memorial.
By choosing one of our spherical infant memorial urns, your
family can integrate it into everyday life as a lovely piece of art
that also functions as a beautiful permanent memorial. The sphere can be placed in
its stand with the Closure facing out, so that the engraving may be
easily seen. Alternatively, if one wishes for visitors to see only a piece of art, the sphere may be placed with the engraved Closure
facing discreetly down within the stand. This way, it has personal meaning for the family, who may hold it
and reflect on the engraving, while visitors will simply see
it as an artwork.
There are two sizes of infant urns from which to choose. The Medium Sphere urn can hold up to 30 or 35 cubic inches of ashes, which is volume-appropriate for an infant or small child whose weight was up to
30 or 35 pounds. The Reflections Series spheres medium size spheres will hold up to 30 cubic inches, while the Iridescent Series of medium spheres will hold up to 35 cubic inches. The Volume capacity for each sphere is noted on each product page.
The Small Sphere urn has an inside volume that will contain up
to 12 or 18 cubic inches of cremains, which is sufficient in size for the ashes a
small infant up to 12 lbs, or up to 18 lbs. The Reflections Series of small spheres will hold up to 18 cubic inches, while the Iridescent Series of small spheres will hold up to 12 cubic inches. The Small Sphere urn's stand is made in
highly polished brass, offering an additional option for having a jeweler
engrave on the exterior or the interior of the ring-shaped stand.
Each of these spherical small cremation urns is provided with an
interior plastic liner bag and twist-tie, and a velvet pouch for
containing any mementos you might like to place inside the urn after the
plastic bag is closed, and before the Closure is tightened into place. The kinds of mementos one might wish to place in the velvet pouch inside the
sphere could include a lock of hair, a small hand-written note or
picture, or any small token that is meaningful to you.
Sterling Keepsake Cremation Pendants:
These urn pendants are made in solid sterling silver, with rhodium
plating for tarnish and scratch resistance. Rhodium is a member of the
platinum family, and is applied to all our sterling pendants, with the exception of the
Celtic Cross, which is intended to darken somewhat over time as part of its rustic
Each pendant is hollow, in order to contain a small amount of ashes, to
be worn next to your heart. Included are a small funnel for
transferring the ashes into the pendant, glue for permanently sealing
the pendant at the threads, and a black velvet pouch for protecting the pendant's surface while traveling.
Mini Urn Keepsakes:
These small mini urn keepsake memorials contain only about 1 cubic inch of ashes, and are meant for partial containment, if a family chooses to have a scattering ceremony, and keep only a small portion of the ashes sealed in a small memorial.
Each of these small solid glass heart keepsake memorials is polished on the back, providing an area for laser engraving. These small keepsakes do not contain any ashes, but are meant as a small memorial token that fits perfectly in the palm of one's hand.
We are hopeful that one of these small urns or keepsakes may help your family in coping with your loss.
