Family members or special friends often want to memorialize their loved ones by retaining a small portion of the cremated remains. A variety of small keepsake urns and pendants are available for this purpose. Keepsake urns are manufactured from the same materials as regular urns and are often available as a matching set to the permanent urns selected. Keepsake pendants are crafted by jewelers as tokens to be worn. They are generally made out of gold, silver, brass or pewter.
