Process of turning ashes into diamonds

Many people wonder what to do with the cremation ashes of a loved one. For Algordanza, the idea to turn ashes into diamonds happened in 2003 in Switzerland as a means of unique remembrance and bereavement for the loved ones we’ve lost.

With special high-pressure, high-temperature (HPHT) presses and great precision, we can take a natural diamond seed and simulate the natural diamond growth process. You can watch our short video on how we turn ashes into cremation diamonds, or follow the link below.

Frequently Asked Questions and Answers

Like any high quality lab grown diamond, ALGORDANZA diamonds have the same physical, chemical and optical properties as a natural diamond. In our Swiss lab located in Domat/Ems, Switzerland we recreate the natural formation conditions so that your individual ALGORDANZA diamond can grow.

It is not the volume of ash that is decisive for the growth of a cremation diamond, but its carbon content. A cremation diamond is grown purely from the carbon extracted from human ashes of which a minimum of 500g is needed to grow, this is because ashes contain approximately 20% carbon.

If a company that turns ashes to diamonds needs less than 500g of ashes, they are more than likely adding industrial carbon (impurities) to the process in order to create the size of diamond needed, Algordanza guarantees that your cremation diamond is made of 100% of your loved ones ashes.

Since hair contains approximately 51% carbon a much smaller amount of hair can be made into a diamond or diamonds.

If you choose a memorial diamond, then a minimum of 5g of hair is needed, or a combination of hair and ashes. Don’t know how much of each you can acquire?
Contact us for help, we will help you to find out.

We document our rigorous quality control with an ALGORDANZA certificate. We guarantee authenticity, weight, cut, color and the origin of the diamond having been created from the delivered cremation ashes or hair.

Each diamond order is marked with a unique reference number. (This reference number will be provided to you when you sign the order form) Consequently, we are able to trace every step of the process; starting from the order to the finalized diamond. Throughout the process, we provide information on the status of the transformation as each stage completes.
