Selecting the correct size

Urns come in as many sizes and shapes as people or pets

Enter your loved one's approximate weight to determine the correct urn size.

Your loved one's weight

(in pounds)

Minimum urn capacity

(in cubic inches)

For every one pound of body weight, allow about 1 cubic inch capacity (for example, your 150 pound loved one will need an urn with a minimum capacity of 150 cubic inches). Remember, an urn can only be too small - if you're not sure, it's better to choose a larger urn.

What our customers say

We wanted to thank Tara for her wonderful customer service and promptness with us receiving the beautiful Azure urn overnight. Your kindness and effort are truly appreciated!

Thai - Fayetteville, GA

Received our Pawsitive Reflection Slate/Pewter Pet Urn today and am extremely pleased. We have a beautiful place to keep our precious Yorkie, Gladys Marie. The customer service from this company is EXCELLENT!

Robert - Townsend, TN

I received the urn today and just wanted to let you know that it is just perfect. More beautiful than the photograph on your website. Thank you for your prompt handling of my order.

Cassie - Weimar, CA

Just wanted to let you know that I received the Loop de Loop urn today. It is beautiful - truly a work of art! I could not be happier with the urn and with the wonderful service that I received from everyone at your company. Thank you for responding to my request regarding the urn that was out of stock and for your help in selecting the appropriate size urn for my needs. I especially appreciate that you contacted the artist of this beautiful piece and were able to ensure that I would be able to get this stunning urn for my beloved dog. Though some would say he was "just" a dog, he was my constant companion for twelve years and was very special to me. I plan to place this one of a kind vessel on my mantle, that way every time I see it I will be able to recall wonderful memories of my little dog Laddy, who is truly gone but not forgotten.

Mary - Gibsonia, PA

I wanted to tell you how much I love the urn. It looked awesome in the picture but WOW when I got it. It is so very special just like the man it was created for. Thank you for all your help and support throughout this difficult process.

Carla - Winter Springs, FL

I just wanted to extend thanks to you for dropping everything and creating the perfect urn for my mother. The painting came put beautiful. Everyone agreed that she would be very happy to "hang out" inside something that looked like that. :-) I also appreciated your prompt responses. Fantastic service overall. If anyone I know is ever looking for the perfect urn, I will surely recommend you.

Julia - Framingham, MA

The urn arrived today... It's beautiful!!!! It looks so real and life like. My mother would be proud of her final resting place. I can't thank you enough for all your help, and the closure the urn has brought me. I can't wait to get home tonight and get mom settled in, for one last time. Thank you again, and I will definitely pass the word where to get the most beautiful urns on Earth!

Kelly - Bradenton, FL

I just wanted to say thank you. I received the urn I selected yesterday and it arrived in perfect condition. It is exactly what I had hoped for and am so thankful. This was an unexpected loss and it was just so nice to open the box and find that it looked just as it did on your website. I'm sure that you receive notes all the time about how you make a terribly hard time easier, but please know that it is true.

Jaye - Newbury Park, CA

I just received my order of 3 keepsake urns from you today. I have to say, although it is such a sad situation that brings me to your business and of this need, these urns are by far beautiful! They are quality made and lovely pieces. I am so glad that I found you!

Barbara - New London, CT

The urn arrived and I must tell you that it is as exquisite as I had hoped. As my brothers and sisters and I have sat here grieving the imminent death of our beloved and beautiful mother, we discussed our wish to place her ashes in something as unique and beautiful as she has been her entire life. We are so happy to have found your company and thank you for finding this truly one of a kind urn.

Terri - Litchfield, CT

I purchased the Pink Garden Metal Urn. It is absolutely beautiful and the perfect resting place for my precious daughter. I searched for a long time and when I first saw this urn I knew it was the one. I kept searching anyway but always kept coming back to this one. When I opened the box, I was amazed to see that it was even more beautiful than its picture. I feel a great peace with my choice and recommend this urn for anyone who is looking for a special urn for a special woman.

Jennifer - O'Fallon, MO

After the passing of our mother, my sister and I were on the hunt for an urn that symbolizes "our mom." She was the definition of a TRUE DIVA! We ran across this site and fell in love! I would recommend the Diva High Heel Shoe Urn to anyone that's in a position to purchase. You truly get what you pay for and the craftsmanship is AMAZING!!! I think my mom would be proud of her final resting place in something that symbolizes ONLY HER . . . and the thing she loved the most . . . HIGH HEELS! Thank you!

Marquita - Chesterfield, VA

I just received the urn today and could not be happier. Thank you so much for your courtesy and compassion.

Sandy - Marion, IA

I just received Chloe's urn and it is so beautiful! I cannot thank you enough for such a gorgeous resting place for my little "princess." Thank you again so very much!

Sherry - Glendale, AZ

My Papillon Rose urn is beautiful! Please thank your artist and thank you soo much for making it possible for my Doggie to have a pink urn. I cannot thank you enough -- it was well worth the wait!

Lilian - Granada Hills, CA

Thank you!!!! I can't even begin to explain how happy I am with the urn I purchased for my mother's remains. Facing such a difficult time and having to make so many decisions is so emotionally draining. After a visit to our funeral home and seeing what was available for urns and the ridiculous prices I knew I could do better with a little research. I was blessed to find your company. And there it was purple and butterflies, my mother's favorite color and she loved her butterflies. Thank you again for making a tough time a little easier.

Laura - Shoreview, MN

Thank you very much for the incredible customer service. I have highly recommended your company to the Funeral Director that suggested I search the internet for a suitable urn for my daughter. I think it important for people to know there are vibrant, creative urn options out there for their loved ones that "don't fit the mold."

Shanda - Des Moines, IA

I received the Hopi Urn and it is beautiful. I would recommend your site to anyone. We also ordered the 2 matching mini urns. At a time when our life seemed so difficult to face the mornings without my husband and her father, it was nice to receive urns that were even more beautiful than in the picture. Thank you.

Virginia - Tanner, AL

I received the Pink Garden urn today on time. It is beautiful! I know my Mom is pleased with our choice and your quality. Thank you for your conversation and your service. It brought me comfort and peace of mind. Customer service is a rare commodity. I appreciate you and your company,

Linda - Los Angeles, CA

Cosmo’s urn arrived on Saturday morning. It is perfect! Cosmo is now on the mantle at my son’s home in a container that is beautiful and fit for our sweet doggie. Thank you so much for your attention to detail and such amazing service.

Brenda - Griggsville, IL

My family and I would like to thank you. The urn is truly lovely -- more than we all could ever imagine. Your service has been remarkable. We will keep your company in mind in the future.

Tabatha - Cleveland, OH

Thank you SO MUCH!!!! I read your story on your website and am SO THANKFUL for your family starting this business. After looking through magazines and online stores, we just could not find one that was right for my step-dad. My mom is thrilled to be able to have something that is perfect for him. I will recommend your business to many others who are looking for an urn for loved ones.

Nettie - Evansville, IN

We received our urn today. It really is a quality craftsmanship piece of art. Thank you so much for the attention to detail and providing your service for our son and our family. We are truly grateful to have what suits Josh's personality.

Kellie - West Allis, WI

My glass ash globe arrived this afternoon, and I can't tell you how pleased I am with it! It is absolutely gorgeous and worth every penny! It is a perfect memorial for my mother and I wanted to thank you so much for offering this amazing service!

Jennie - Cary, NC

My "Diva" shoe urn was delivered and I have to say - I love it! I think it will be a great source of amusement to family and friends on that inevitable day. Obviously, I hope to be remembered for much more substantive things, but the one thing everyone will smile about is how ridiculous I always was about shoes. Thank you for time you took to communicate with me and to make sure we were all on the same page.

Wendy - Woodland Park, CO

I just received my custom size urn & I just wanted to let you know that it's just beautiful! I just love it!!

Aimee - Scottsdale, AZ

Let me tell you how excited I was when I received your email that the urn was complete! I have been talking about it non stop. When it finally arrived, I was so excited but when I unwrapped everything my heart stopped because it was EXACTLY what I wanted for my Dad and even as I write this email I am still crying because it is BEAUTIFUL. I am so thankful that you were able to accurately capture my father in a single piece of art that I can treasure for the rest of my life and that depicts him as the hero he was to me. Thank you sooo much for all your time and effort into making this piece unique and special.

Carolyn - Middletown, DE

Thank you so much for sending the urns I purchased for my dog so quickly. They are beautiful and perfect for remembering our boy. I'm so glad our pet sitter recommended your website.

Michelle - Las Vegas, NV

After losing my beloved Dogue de Bordeaux, Gideon, to lymphoma, I needed to find something to memorialize him. At the same time, I wanted it to be something that could make me smile once again. I had this crazy idea of having a sculpture made of him participating in his favorite pastime of dumping the wastebasket and eating the paper. When I initially called and discussed this with Melody, she didn't consider it crazy. She understood and said they could indeed make it happen. The memorial is magnificent! My Gideon is gorgeous! His eyes seem to speak to me. The attention to detail is exceptional. The sculptor, Joseph, is a true artist. He even perfected a replica of Gideon's handmade leather and brass collar, and captured that little guilty look Gideon got when he was caught at his favorite little hobby. After receiving the sculpture, my husband and I took a walk. Upon our return home, the wastebasket was dumped and paper was all over the floor. Gideon also approves of his sculpture and told me so in his way -- even though he got his wings in November of 2010.

Jackie - Temecula, CA

My custom softball urn arrived today. It is perfect! I truly love it. The vessel represents my beloved pet and the relationship that we shared. Thank you very much. Your professionalism during this time made the urn truly what I wanted it to be.

Edie - Tampa, FL

I want to thank you for the beautiful urn I purchased for my dog. The dog bowl design was a perfect fit to her character. The quality and workmanship of the piece certainly shines through. Delivery was lightning fast too. Thanks again.

Deborah - Scottsdale, AZ

I requested an unusual urn for my own cremains, and Une Belle Vie came through for me. The urn is not only beautiful (the craftsmanship is awesome) but it was brought to me by Melody's family members due to shipping issues and Melody wanting to be so careful with an art piece. I have NEVER known such wonderful service from a company or person. I am so pleased and would not hesitate recommending Une Belle Vie to others.

Pat - Ft. Lupton, CO

The vessel and sculpture of Colby are absolutely amazing. I was so overwhelmed by everything it means to me that I just sat and wept for hours. It is PERFECT in EVERY way and I can't imagine anything more beautiful to represent everything he means to me. THANK YOU does not begin to express my heartfelt gratitude to the time and effort you and your artists put in to making this perfect ending to one of the greatest and sweetest chapters of my life! You have without a doubt, made a difference in my life by creating such a beautiful memorial for Colby and I will cherish it for the rest of my life. God Bless you and your staff for your attention to detail and insight when creating these beautiful works of art to represent very important elements of one's life.

John - Padukah, KY

Thank you so very much for your prompt shipment of my order. This has been one less thing to worry about during this difficult time for my family. My Mother was very pleased with your product. Thank you again!

Debra - Fairfax, VT

I received my urn today and was really impressed. Product was made of great material, packaged well for shipping and shipped quickly. Great experience. Highly recommend.

Shelley - Palmyra, NY

I want to thank you for helping with the selection of the urn this last week. In some ways I was holding off looking for an urn because I thought the process was going to be a bit uncomfortable for me. Having such a varied selection to choose from and with the manner in which you handled the process put my fears at ease. I have the urn placed on the mantel as planned and I don’t think it could be more perfect. I believe it is one my wife would have picked out for herself.

John - Lakewood, CO

I received my urn today, and I can't think of a better tribute to my beloved standard poodle, Jake. It's hard to lose someone you love so dearly. I think my Jake would be happy with where he is now . . . Thank you again.

Bonny - Pittsburgh, PA

The urn looks beautiful -- just like the picture on your site. I'm very pleased. Thank you for your help.

Tina - San Mateo, CA

I just wanted to let you know that my daughter and son-in-law were thrilled with the urn and I am thrilled with the excellent customer service. Hopefully, I will not need your services in the near future, but would definitely recommend you to someone who does. Thanks again for the excellent customer service and I wish you great success in your business!

Jenna - Conyers, GA

I just wanted to personally thank Melody...she went out of her way to make sure that the urn I selected arrived on time for my parents' service and it was beautiful. I am so thankful that she answered the phone the day I called and wish there were more helpful people like her in this difficult time for me. Melody definitely went above and beyond :)

Melissa - DeFuniak Springs, FL

I’m glad I found Une Belle Vie! Melody understood what I wanted right away, and was able to show me several beautifully hand crafted urns to choose from. When I found what I wanted I told her the lid wasn’t quite what I envisioned and Melody contacted the artist who offered alternatives. The process was collaborative and all involved were supportive. It was a really good experience.

Margaret - Englewood, CO

I just want to thank you all for all of your help with my urn purchase. I was looking for the perfect urn and found the Ruby Rose glass urn. Thank you so much!

Kheri - Brooklyn, NY

Thank you again for your great customer service. I will recommend you to anyone who asks.

Kevin - Asheville, NC

The urn arrived today and I cannot begin to thank you and the skilled artists for this very, very special gift! After looking at it through my tears, I truly began to appreciate the skill and care evident in this artwork honoring Cody.

Arlene - Durham, NC

The urn has gotten great responses from family and friends and I just wanted to say thank you once again. You will always be recommended in my book.

Terri - Bloomingdale, IL

Thank you, thank you, thank you, it is perfect!! I'm so very grateful to you for helping me out with the price, taking care of shipping and all of the comforting emails during my grief and confusion.

Dee - Las Cruces, NM

I wanted a perfect beautiful urn no matter the cost because this is the priceless gift that sits on a beautiful urn table in my bedroom. Melody and I started to email March 2010 . I had ideas and she had suggestions as well for my urn. My beloved husband and I were married on 6/19/93 at the Mallard house in Allamuchy, NJ, so I decided I wanted two mallards on it so you know we will be soul mates for life. Melody, the artist and I worked closely together to get exactly what I wanted. They absolutely met my expectations. I highly recommend them to the world. What a gift they have been.
