Today we’re going to show you the 35 most beautiful, purple cremation urns.
The color purple has always carried special significance throughout history. Purple has long been seen as a sign of wealth, royalty, mystery, and majesty; but darker shades of purple are also associated with loss, mourning and sadness. Some cultures even reserve this color solely for mourning the loss of a spouse, and it is seen as irreverent to wear it outside of such solemn and meaningful occasions.
Even with all attributed meanings aside, purple is still recognized and praised for its beauty and deep value, and is loved by people everywhere. Whether you or your loved one adored this majestic hue or you just want to give them a final resting place worthy of royalty, these cremation urns combine elegance and the finest quality craftsmanship with beautiful and varying purple hues and finishes.
Many of the urns below are also available in other sizes and/or colors, in case you are looking for options apart from the standard memorial urn. A variety of materials and price points are also represented here to provide you with as much variety as possible.
