What is a Cremation Diamond?
A cremation diamond is a real diamond, created from the carbon extracted from cremated ashes, hair or a combination of ashes and hair. The natural geologic process that forms diamonds deep in the earth is replicated using high pressure high temperature machines in a laboratory. A cremation diamond may also be referred to as a burial diamond, memorial diamond, memorial gem, or memory diamond.
A cremation diamond is a unique way to commemorate a loved one that has passed, and forge a family heirloom to be treasured for generations.

Why a Cremation Diamond ?
Memories to cherish and hold on to
Cremation diamonds capture the essence of a loved on and instead of a traditional Urn stored at home or a cemetery, cremation diamonds made from your loved ones’ hair or ashes can be kept close with you, or passed on to children as a heirloom.
More affordable than traditional funerals
Cremation diamonds start at £2,000 for a 0.3 ct rough diamond. The diamond’s material (ash or hair), size, cut, and optional laser Inscription of your cremation diamond will determine the final price of your diamond. However, the cremation diamond will still cost less than a standard burial, which can cost up to £7,500 or more (Average traditional funeral in the SE of England).
Ethically better Diamonds
Many natural diamonds are still obtained through severe human rights abuse as well as the exploitation of children, workers and whole communities. It can cause devastation and severe damage to the land as well as the local water supply. Choosing a cremation diamond made from ashes or hair with the same properties as a natural diamond reduces these very negative effects.
