The Ultimate Diamond Engagement Ring
Made from yours and your partners hair!
In 1477, Archduke Maximillian of Austria commissioned the very first diamond engagement ring on record for his betrothed, Mary of Burgundy. This sparked a trend for diamond rings among European aristocracy and nobility.
By the late 19th century it became popular to celebrate an engagement with a diamond and now in the 21st century it is expected to have a bit of sparkle on your finger. Have we reached a time where the diamond engagement ring is cliched? Probably not… Is a diamond ring a stunning piece of jewellery that sparkles like no other and represents the love of a committed couple? Most definitely!
In Switzerland there is a company that is a leader in this field, Algordanza, who has for 17 years made diamonds from cremation ash. And as an article in National Geographic states ‘Using high-tech machines, engineers can transform the carbon from human ashes into diamond gems that are physically and chemically identical to natural diamonds.’
Since 2018 Algordanza now offer celebration diamonds made from hair. Perfect for engagement or wedding rings, family rings, anniversary rings or anyone who wants to put their hair together to create a ‘together’ diamond.
Algordanza are represented in 35 countries worldwide. Recently a TV show in South Africa made a story of a young couple Garrick & Janine who recently got engaged and their beautiful engagement diamond was made from hair cuttings from all parent’s and each one’s siblings. For them it was a unique symbol of love and the joining of two families. How cool is that?
Pure Love in a celebration diamond created from the hair of loved ones encapsulated eternally in a stunning diamond.
