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.

I could not be more impressed with the finished product. I had an interest in precious stones prior to this process and the colour saturation, cut and clarity of the diamond is breathtaking. My stone is absolutely beautiful and has some unique characteristics that even Kevin didn’t expect. I would not hesitate to recommend both Algordanza and Kevin. I will cherish my diamond forever.
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 from the cremated remains or hair of a lost loved one.
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 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 into 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 that your cremation diamond is made 100% of the cremation ashes sent to us.
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?
