Algordanza's Guarantee of Origin of Ashes
We grow diamonds from ashes or hair with the utmost care and precision. We document our rigorous quality control with an Algordanza certificate as well as guarantee authenticity, weight, cut, colour and the origin of the diamond having been created from 100% of the cremation ashes or hair delivered to us.
Each diamond order is marked with a unique reference number, provided to you when you sign your order form. Consequently, we are able to trace every step of the process; starting from your order to the finished cremation or memorial diamond.
Since 2004, thousands of people have trusted Algordanza to deliver the highest quality, service and transparency of any other memorial diamond company. Read on to find out why.
Only company to offer lab visits
Algordanza is committed to integrity and 100% transparency. We are proud to say that we are the only ashes to diamonds company in the world to offer lab visits.

If you have decided on the quality and reputation of Algordanza, you are also welcome to deliver your loved one’s ashes or hair personally to our headquarters in Domat/Ems, Switzerland and/or receive the finished cremation diamond upon completion.
Notarial and gemological certification
ALGORDANZA has had their process of turning ashes to diamonds, notarized. A notary was commisioned to accompany the diamond transformation process from the begining where the ashes were received, to the end where a cremation diamond was grown. ALGORDANZA cremation diamonds have also been confirmed by qualified gemologist’s (gemstone experts) to be genuine diamonds.
Our memorial diamonds are quality controlled by expert gemologists from GGTL Laboratories located in Liechtenstein, a specialist in lab-grown diamonds.
We work with funeral homes for security
Other companies want you to send your loved one’s ashes through the mail, which often become lost, stolen or sent to the wrong address. If the ashes do reach the destination, do you know where they were sent and who recieved them? Funeral homes are experts at separating and transporting ashes.
Algordanza does not mass produce memorial diamonds in China or India, we grow real memorial diamonds in Domat/Ems Switzerland, come visit us and see for yourself!
Algordanza also does not offer a “Starter-Kit” which makes one feel obligated to order a diamond after spending the initial cost.
Growing diamonds from ashes relies on technology!
Algordanza uses the most high-tech, custom made presses made in Germany and we only use them for growing diamonds from cremation ashes or hair. All other producers of diamonds from ashes use presses known as BARS presses, first developed in Russia and widely used in China, their main purpose is the mass production of industrial diamonds.
