ALGORDANZA in the News
Cremation diamonds from ashes
Also known as ash diamonds, an Algordanza cremation diamond is grown purely from 100% of the cremated remains of a human. The cremation ashes are first put through a special process to extract the carbon, then using special HPHT presses your loved one is turned into a diamond.
Memorial diamonds from hair
Memorial diamonds are made from hair, a combination of hair and ashes or even sentimental objects. Diamonds from hair can be quite large, as hair consists of 51% carbon.

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?
