Ashes: 8 tablespoons
Hair: half a cup
We need about eight tablespoons of ash or half a cup of hair to create a diamond.
We accept several sources for the required carbon (for example, 50% of hair and the rest in ashes).
The quantities above cover up to three diamonds. If you need more than three, we ask you to please contact us so we can arrange the exact amount of remains we need for production.
Pet ashes and fur are very similar to human ashes and hair at the chemical level. Therefore, we need the same amount in each case.
To turn ashes into a diamond, it takes us about two to four months.
The exact length of time will depend on your diamond’s size and color. If you want a larger diamond, it could take up to four months to grow. Our colorless memorial diamonds need an extra purification process, so it takes more time than the yellow cremation diamonds.
The cost of a memorial diamond varies depending on the color and size you choose, just like the cost of a natural diamond.
Cost begins at $1,249 for a .25 carat yellow diamond.

Often, this is the first thing shoppers ignore when choosing a diamond. However, it is critical to understand that the cut grade has a major impact on the diamond’s appearance and value as a piece of jewelry. The higher the cut grade, the more valuable the diamond will be as a piece of jewelry. Therefore, it’s important to focus on a diamond’s cut grade as much as its carat weight when shopping for diamonds.
The cut of a diamond is responsible for the way light is reflected through the diamond. The higher the diamond’s cut grade, the more light will be reflected from the diamond’s surface. As a result, the diamond will sparkle more—making it more valuable as a piece of jewelry. To put it simply, the higher the cut grade, the more beautiful your diamond will be—and the more valuable it will be as a piece of jewelry.

Yellow is the most elementary color choice out of all the cremation diamond color choices. These amber diamonds are created following basic standards without extra elements or special technical methods. The production expenses and time are usually the lowest; therefore, these diamonds are the most popular choice.
If you want the color of your cherished diamond to stay natural, then go with yellow. This amber color is the result of the amount of nitrogen that stays in the carbon, which crucial in human cremation remains.
The green cremation diamonds require an extra HPHT procedure to change the diamond’s structure and color in the center of the diamonds. Therefore, this greenish color takes a little bit longer to create, resulting in a price increase.
