What is a Memorial Diamond?
What shapes us as humans is our capacity for the unconditional love we have for our family and our friends and pets. Those magical and memorable moments spent together make up the rich tapestry of our lives. With this in mind we create beautiful and eternal diamonds that truly represent the love, care and bond you have with your lost loved one. Within the diamonds is a little piece of the one you've lost. Placing the ashes into jewellery is a common, yet unique, way of people remembering the departed. Your Heart in Diamond is an eternal bond between yourself and your beloved who are no longer with us. With it you carry their memory, essence and spirit. There is no greater connection to them than this one from the heart. Your personal diamond is grown in a laboratory under strictly controlled conditions. To create your individual diamond we add the hair or ashes of your loved one to a diamond's growing foundation. This grows into a unique diamond that is connected to your loved one at its very core. Creating jewellery from ashes of those you love is a perfect, sentimental tribute.
Create your own diamond
Your personalised diamond is a 100% genuine diamond with exactly the same optical, physical and chemical properties as an Earth-grown crystal. The same 4C's characteristics (colour, clarity, cut and carat) will apply when grading your Heart in Diamond. So by placing your loved one's ashes into jewellery you'll be encasing their spirit in the finest possible diamond.
Depending on the type of diamond you desire and your budget, this list of options will help you in creating your personal diamond. If you are looking for something a little bit different to remember your loved one, you may want to see our ashes into glass jewellery service.
Your Heart in Diamond will be grown from carbon extracted from the hair or ashes of your loved one. The extracted carbon will then be used as the diamond growing foundation to create your very personal diamond. A great option is to use both your hair and the hair of your loved one mixed together in order to grow a family crystal. See Creation Process for more information on how we will create your diamond.
Depending on what you have in mind for the mounted design, you will be able to order your diamond in various sizes from 0.03 carat up to 2.00 carats. So the jewellery from ashes we create will be able to truly represent the relationship and bond you had with your loved one.
Every personal diamond grown in our laboratory is cut and polished in accordance with the highest and most exacting standards in the diamond industry. You can choose the cut shapes for your diamond offered by our professionals.
Choosing the colour is an exciting and rewarding task. The unique vibrancy, shade and warmth of each colour will enhance the emotional character that your personal diamond already carries within. By choosing your own colour you will develop and solidify the relationship with your diamond jewellery from ashes, and the person whose ashes are within.
