Coffee and cremated remains, urns and cremation jewelry… Among my favorite exhibitors to visit at funeral trade shows are the friendly Khan family, proprietors of LoveUrns®. The fact that they usually have an espresso bar offering free caffeinated delights in their booth always scores big points.
LoveUrns® is known for their creative, beautifully-designed solid brass urns. At the 2017 National Funeral Directors Association (NFDA) convention, they introduced a line of brightly striped urns, both in the colors of the rainbow and shades of brown. The line includes full-sized urns for adults, smaller keepsake urns and hearts, matching jewelry, and memorial tea light containers.
Naseem Khan, president of LoveUrns, said, “We are getting a lot of response. People have always asked us for this kind of collection, and we decided that this was the time to do it.”
Cremation jewelry is a way to keep the memory of a loved one close. The LoveUrns Treasure™ line of cremation jewelry, available in sterling silver, complements the designs of their urns, including the popular Blessing Birds and Butterfly urns. Some designs are plated in gold vermeil, rhodium, and ruthenium.
“You know, it makes it easier for the family, when they know their loved one is inside a big urn, and they have a small amount of cremains in the same matching jewelry. There’s an emotional connection,” said Khan.
The jewelry features a small compartment which can be filled with a drop of cremated remains, special sand or soil, or other special memorial items. The compartment in most of the jewelry is accessed by removing a small Allen screw, an internal hex design which seats flat to the back of a pendant. Either the funeral director or the family can open the jewelry and place their special items inside.
All the jewelry comes with a beautiful Treasure Box, a filling kit, and a polishing cloth. The box provides a safe place to store the jewelry when it isn’t being worn. LoveUrns offers matching pendants, earrings and bracelet beads in different styles, colors, and finishes.
