White Cremation Urns
White holds different meanings for different cultures. In the East, white is the color of mourning, the afterlife, and rebirth. In the West, white is associated with virtue, insight, purity, and an innocent soul. White is, therefore, a very fitting color for cremation urns for almost any person and pays a special tribute to many types of personalities.
Trupoint Memorials has a beautiful collection of white urns for ashes that are suitable for a mom, dad, child, or even a beloved pet. Our metal urns are perfect for display at home, in a columbarium, or for burial. The designs range from simple and timeless for those with refined tastes to intricately hand painted birdlife to memorialize those who loved nature.
Choosing the Right Specialty Urn
When choosing the perfect cremation urn for a lost loved one, you’ll need to factor in the urn’s design, material, and size.
Trupoint Memorials’ white urns come in various beautiful, hand-selected designs. There are elegant and classic styles like our Everlasting Love Urn, or there are urns with simple, clean lines like the Modern Love Urn. We have urns in soft white and gold and those with bright pops of color against the white background. We use high-quality paint and a protective coat for a brilliant, long-lasting finish.
Our urns come in solid brass or more lightweight aluminum alloy. Both materials are exceptionally hardwearing and tarnish-resistant, making them suitable for outdoors as well as indoors.
Finally, you need to determine the size of the urn you’ll need. Our large urns can hold the remains of a person of up to 200 lbs. Our Majestic Urn comes in white and is suitable for a 330-lb person. Alternatively, you can opt for a keepsake urn, which is a small urn that holds only a portion of the cremains.

The best type of urn is one that is aesthetically appealing but functional. Metal urns, especially metals like brass and aluminum, are a great choice because they are malleable and come in many different sizes and shapes. They can be polished, engraved, or painted, so they come in almost endless designs. Metal urns come with threaded lids, so they seal very securely. Many are also durable enough to be kept outdoors or even buried.
You can pour ashes directly into an urn, especially if it seals tightly (for example, if it has a screw-on lid). If you’re using a biodegradable urn, you’ll also place the cremains straight into the vessel. However, if the urn isn’t made to biodegrade, or if you’re worried about the contents of the urn spilling, then you can keep the ashes in a plastic bag (or another container) and simply place the bag inside the urn.
Ashes are actually tiny bone fragments made up mainly of minerals and not organic matter. As a result, ashes can last indefinitely if you keep them in an urn that seals tightly and in a cool, dry place.
