These days, there are as many types of urns as there are people and personalities. Thankfully, with the advent of online shopping and the move of many brick-and-mortar stores to e-storefronts, urns of all types, shapes, sizes, and materials are readily available to anyone looking.

When shopping for urns for a loved one, you can easily filter the choices available by the type of urn, desired size, and color. If you’re looking for a pink urn, there are several different types you can expect to find and numerous places available to purchase them.
Tip: If you're looking for something very unique (think a game, a classic car, or instrument of choice), you can custom order an urn from a store like Foreverence. You submit a design idea or sketch, then the company designs and 3D prints your urn, so you get a 100% unique container.
What Are the Different Types of Pink Urns?
Just like traditional headstones and grave markers, urns for ashes are highly personal and should reflect the life of the person they represent. Pink urns are the choice of many adults for a variety of needs and reasons.
Pink urns can be incredibly elegant options for many adults. For some, it might be their favorite color. The color pink could also represent something meaningful, such as a fight with cancer or the love shared between husband and wife.
Here are several types you can find in most any place that sells urns.
1. Pink metal urn
Often adorned with designs such as angel wings, butterflies, or hearts, a metal urn is ideal for placing in an outdoor memorial garden area such as a garden or outdoor niche.
2. Pink blown glass cremation urn
This urn is made entirely of blown glass and is especially delicate. This needs a secure resting place that won’t be jostled or bumped. Elegant, opaque, and beautiful, blown glass can be a fitting tribute for any family member.
3. Sakura pink ceramic cremation urn
This elegant rounded urn with a Japanese flair is ideal for those looking to honor a mother, a Japanese female relative, someone who enjoyed the Japanese culture, or someone who especially admires the outdoors, cherry blossoms, and nature. This will sit well in a special place inside a house or in an inside columbarium.
4. Pink tourmaline cremation urn necklace
If you’re looking for a personalized piece of jewelry to remember a loved one by, consider a cremation necklace that has their birthstone embedded. Pink Tourmaline is October’s birthstone and is very fitting when set into a cremation urn necklace.
5. Pink biodegradable urn
These urns are made from a variety of materials, all of which will biodegrade in the earth or in water. For those looking for an urn for a scattering ceremony, burial at sea, or a green burial in which ashes can be placed in the ground, a biodegradable urn is ideal.
6. Pink cultured marble companion urn
This is ideal for those looking for a pink companion urn for a mother and daughter, daughters, or other female relatives to share. There are two separate storage compartments housed inside the urn to keep ashes separate but united together.
7. Pink heart keepsake urn
If you’re looking for an option for a pink urn to share ashes among multiple family members, this is ideal. Keepsake urns hold a small portion of ashes around 3 cubic inches. Most of the time, these come with a stand or holder for the heart.
Infant urns differ from adult urns in size, shape, and design. These urns are special tributes to the precious little ones in our lives.
1. Pink ceramic urn
This is simple yet elegant and beautiful. You can customize it with a child’s name, a verse or quote, or symbols such as angel wings, hearts, or butterflies.
2. Pink teddy bear urn
This sweet urn is ceramic and can be perfect for remembering the life and love of a little child. The bear can have a child’s name inscribed on the foot or their birthstone placed over the bear’s heart.
3. Pink diamond cremation jewelry
Cremation diamonds are created by taking a portion of a loved one’s ashes and turning them into a diamond in the lab. It can take around six months for you to get your diamond back but you’ll have a permanent reminder of your child that can be set in a ring, bracelet, or necklace.
Some companies, like Eterneva, create these diamonds and allow you to pick from several cuts and colors for your gemstone.
4. Pink tealight urn
This lovely urn is large enough to hold the ashes of an infant, yet small enough to hold no more than a tealight candle. If you’re looking for a lasting tribute, the tealight candle can be lit in their remembrance and safely burn for hours.
5. Pink baby bootie
Baby booties are especially meaningful when memorializing the precious life of an infant. These can be engraved with the name and dates of a child, adorned with a birthstone, or personalized with dates.
6. Pink ceramic box
Ceramic boxes are simple yet highly customizable. If you want a blank slate to customize, a box is the best option. You can have a child’s name and dates inscribed, their picture, handprints, or footprints added to the sides, inscribe a verse or quote, and add symbols such as a praying angel.
Pets are more than companions. For many people, they are members of the family. When they pass away, many families want a tangible way to remember their furry friends. Here are several pink urns that will provide an opportunity to memorialize them.
1. Stainless steel with pink paw prints
Stainless steel urns are durable and ideal for keeping in high-traffic areas. If you want to remember your furry friend and keep their urn in a place such as your backyard dog run or a garden, this is an ideal option.
2. Pink pawprint tealight candle holder urn
This memorial urn provides pet owners the opportunity to light a candle in their pet’s memory. You can customize this by adding your pet’s name, dates, and a phrase such as, “You left pawprints on our hearts.”
3. Pink rhinestone dog/cat necklace urn
A necklace urn is a discreet way to remember your beloved feline companion and keep them with you no matter where you go.
4. Pink dog/cat figurine urn
Animal figurine urns are a delightful way to remember your furry family member. They can be placed on a dresser, mantle, bookshelf, or any place where you’ll see it and think fondly of your pet.
5. Pink pet windchime keepsake urn
Windchimes are an especially meaningful way to keep a pet that has passed away present in your life. Windchime urns have a hollowed-out area in either the top or the clapper where you can keep some of your pet’s ashes. These urns are ideal if you want to share a pet’s ashes among several family members who live in different locations.
6. Pink blown glass keepsake urn
For those looking for a beautiful statement piece for their keepsake urn, consider a blown glass keepsake urn or a blown glass urn with ashes infused into the glass. Either option is a beautiful memorial that speaks to the beauty and influence that your pet had on you and your family.
Where Can You Buy Pink Urns?
Pink urns can be found in a variety of places both online and in stores. If you have a specific budget in mind when it comes to how much an urn costs, be sure to compare prices from several places to get the best price available.
If you’re looking for a specific urn, try searching for the urn online. You’ll likely find several online retailers that carry it. By shopping online, you can price compare and also determine which retailer will get the urn to you fastest if time is an issue.
One word of caution when purchasing items online: always check third-party reviews. Some knock-off sites or scam sites will load their store pages with glowing reviews to get people to purchase their items. Always check places like Google Reviews, Trust Pilot, and the Better Business Bureau to ensure you’re buying from a reputable site.
Local crematorium or funeral home
Funeral homes don’t only sell caskets, as they also have a selection of urns for loved ones to purchase. This could be a place to look if you have a certain urn in mind. You aren’t required to buy from the funeral home, however, and you’ll likely find better prices elsewhere.
For those looking for an urn with an antique or shabby-chic flare, try antique shops, flea markets, and other second-hand stores. If purchasing from one of these stores, check the time over carefully to ensure the lid fits snugly and there are no cracks or chips in the urn.
Handmade goods retailers
If you want a blown glass urn, a handmade ceramic urn, or a specific custom idea, go directly to the source and hire or shop from a handmade goods store.
Check craft fairs in person or websites such as Etsy for personalized creations that you can’t find anywhere else.
Purchasing the Right Urn
Urns are a personalized way to memorialize your loved ones or pets. Choose an urn that helps you remember them and reminds you of a life well-lived. No matter the color, finding the right urn can help you look back on your loved one’s life and personality.
