We want to be a source of light for those facing the death of a loved one. Through a surprisingly uplifting and collaborative process, we help families and friends honor the bright moments of life. We help you turn your loved one's ashes into a diamond you can keep close. Design a cremation diamond that uniquely tells the story of your loved one and choose a color that reminds you of their eyes or represents their unique personality.

What is a cremation diamond

Cremation diamonds from ashes or hair are created with the same chemical and physical characteristics as naturally mined diamonds. They are known by a few names, including memorial diamonds and eternal diamonds. They are grown using a laboratory process that utalizes a high-pressure, high-temperature (HPHT) machine, first purifying the cremated remains (ashes) to extract the carbon left inside. Cremated remains contain 1-4% carbon depending on the person's age, diet and other factors.

Cremation diamonds are made from carbon mined from the elements of life. To create a cremation diamond from human ashes or hair in the jewellery standard, the carbon from the cremated remains must be purified to an extremely high purity level. The hair is heat processed in a vacuum environment and the ashes are purified by hand through a refining process. The carbon content in each person's hair or ashes is different, so the process and results are unique to each order.

Natural diamonds form in underground high-pressure, high-temperature (HPHT) environments. A high-pressure, high-temperature press is used to simulate a natural environment to convert the refined carbon from ashes into a cremation diamond. A diamond seed is prepared and placed in the bottom of the inner hub of the press. The inside of the press is heated to over 2,000°C, melting the catalyst metal. The molten metal catalyst dissolves the high purity personal carbon source, which is then transported to the small diamond seed and crystallized. A cremation diamond is born and begins to grow.

They are then polished by our skilled craftsmen. First of all, the cremation diamond undergoes analysis in which the main facets are placed on the diamond. This is done to ensure maximum weight, clarity, and the best angles for the specific diamond shape. After the initial work is done, the diamond is finished by smoothing out the main facets. This is known as polishing the diamond. After the main facets have been polished, the final facets are polished on top of the diamond.

  • Rings: Giving a personalized jewel is a way of conveying a feeling or moment to a person, which they will always carry close to their hearts. In the past, the Egyptians symbolized love as a circle, that is, as a ring. This is why the rings are traditionally worn on the ring finger because of the connection it has with the heart. You can create a beautiful diamond initial ring and always wear it on your ring finger.

  • Pendants: You can always feel your loved one close to the heart.

  • Earrings: Diamonds enhance facial expressions, brightening your smile. You can feel that your loved one is always cheering you on and accompanying you.

Most of the time, diamonds come out blue, but sometimes they appear yellow, colorless, or nearly black. Traces of boron in the human body create the blue tint, but even the manufacturers aren't sure why the colors sometimes vary. Colorless is the most popular color. Cremation diamond manufacturers say that each diamond is unique and beautiful in their own way. A large quantity of ashes is not necessary, therefore it is possible to have more than one diamond made from cremated remains.
