Memorial diamonds from hair

Memorial diamonds are created from hair the same way cremation diamonds are made from ashes. Many individuals desire a memorial diamond because they want a traditional burial and still have a unique keepsake of a lost loved one.

Ashes into cremation diamonds

Also known as ash diamonds, an Algordanza cremation diamond is grown from the cremation ashes of a human. The cremated remains are first put through a special process to extract pure carbon, then using special HPHT presses and swiss precision, your loved one is turned into a diamond.

Algordanza guarantees the quality and origin of ashes of every diamond, visit us in Switzerland and see why we are the world’s leading cremation ashes to diamonds company.

Ashes to diamonds price

A diamond’s price depends on the weight (carat size), the cut and its carbon source (ashes or hair). Delivering you quality and peace of mind are priceless values Algordanza Canada strives for.

Blue and colorless diamonds are the most difficult and time consuming diamonds to grow, taking months from start to finish. Algordanza specializes in these very rare and precious gems.

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. An ALGORDANZA™ cremation diamond is grown purely from the carbon extracted from cremated 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 carat size of diamond needed, ALGORDANZA guarantees and certifies that your cremation diamond is only made from your loved one’s cremated remains.

Since hair contains approximately 51% carbon a much smaller amount is needed to make a large carat diamond or multiple smaller carat diamonds. If you choose a memorial diamond, then a minimum of 5g of hair is needed. Don’t know how much you can acquire?

Contact ALGORDANZA Canada for help, we will help you to find out.

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