Ashes to diamonds cost in Canada

The cost of turning ashes into diamonds depends on:
  • Weight (carat) of diamond, price increases with size.
  • Cut or uncut, certain cuts cost more due to complexity.
  • Carbon source, hair, ashes or a combination of both.

Memorial and cremation diamond cost starting price: $3,699

For a medium size 0.30 carat diamond from ashes or hair, the price starts at $3,699 CAD. For multiple diamonds, the price is reduced, Algordanza offers family diamonds, for multiple family members, 3 x 0.30 carat diamonds cost $9,999 CAD a reduction of $1,098 over 3 single 0.30 carat diamonds.

Diamonds from ashes with no hidden fees

The cost to create Algordanza diamonds from ashes is a complete process with no hidden fees. To be turned into a diamond, the ashes of your loved one will be taken to Switzerland and when finished, will be securely shipped to your funeral home after the entire process of turning your loved one’s ashes into a diamond is complete.

Since a diamond actually grows over time, the diamond’s end size could be slightly smaller or slightly larger than requested. If the diamond is smaller, the price will be reduced, however if the diamond is larger, no extra cost will incur.

Value of Algordanza diamond clarity

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.

More than 80% of all ALGORDANZA diamonds made from ashes or hair are VS1 quality or above.

Algordanza developed a very high-quality processing techique in 2003 and has been constantly improving it ever since. Our processing creates carbon that is 99.99% pure which grows beautiful blue to almost colorless diamonds.

Costs related to diamond color

Due to the element boron ligated to our bodies naturally, ALGORDANZA cremation diamonds can be almost colorless (very little boron present) or be very dark blue (large amount of boron present).

If a cremation diamond is yellow, amber or black, then impurities have been introduced accidentally through poor processing or intentionally into the diamond grid. Such processing is less expensive because less time and poorer quality chemicals are used. Red, pink and green diamonds cost slightly more than yellow diamonds, because they are yellow diamonds that have been exposed to certain types of radiation.

ALGORDANZA has the highest quality processing available and we do not influence the coloration of our diamonds made from ashes or hair.

Real diamond seed to start growth

The larger the cremation diamond should be, the longer it needs to stay in a controlled environment in order to properly grow, which is a major cost factor in time and energy.

Algordanza also has the most sophisticated HPHT presses made in Germany, not BARS presses which are half the size, half as accurate, and subsequently cost less than half. We take great pride in delivering the highest quality memorial diamonds since 2004.

In order for a lab grown diamond to understand how it should grow, a real diamond seed is needed to start the diamond synthesis. We use real diamonds to start the growth process, which not only reflects our high quality but also is reflected in our price.

Prices for cremation diamond Cuts

Algordanza offers six cuts for cremation diamonds; Radiant, Princess, Heart, Asscher, Brilliant and Emerald. The cut is the only man-made quality feature of a diamond. The right cut is important, because it has the ability to unleash the brilliance of a diamond and make a feature of its beauty.

The heart cut costs $499 CAD more due to its complexity and is limited to larger cremation diamonds, contact us for more information.

Uncut diamonds cost less and are more unique

Rough diamonds or uncut diamonds, are preferred by many clients because they reflect their loved one’s “Rough Edges” both having been naturally formed. No two rough diamonds are the same and are therefore unique.

Diamonds from ashes or hair that are rough (uncut) are simply polished to give them a proper shape which makes them cost less than a cut diamond.

It is possible to set rough diamonds into beautiful jewelry. The most popular choice is to set a rough diamond into a pendant and show off the unique texture of the rough diamond.

Free delivery to and from your funeral home

Most ashes to diamonds companies tell you that it is a benefit to only deal directly with them, just send your ashes or hair through the mail and they promise you’ll get what you’ve paid for. That’s positive?

Positive is care and repect given to the ashes of your lost loved one, that is why we deal with thousands of funeral home throughout the world, for added security for you. It may cost a little more, but isn’t the added security and peace of mind worth that extra cost?

The ashes of your lost loved one are precious, don’t give them to just anyone.
