Our Laboratory Expert
The entire process of turning ash or hair into diamonds takes place at our headquarters in Domat/EMS, Switzerland. The isolation of the carbon, by means of a chemical process is carried out and monitored in the laboratory by our experienced laboratory technicians.
The growth of a cremation diamond takes place in our German made High Pressure High Temperature (HPHT) presses. The growth cell and environment of the cremation diamond consists of 25 components, which are handcrafted and assembled by our employees. The highest precision and cleanliness is carried out from the beginning to the end of the diamond growth process.
