Algordanza Origin

For those who have a small amount of ashes or hair left behind, we have introduced The Algordanza Origin Diamond.

In cases where not enough cremated remains or hair of the deceased person are available, a second Carbon source can be added. As a second Carbon source personal letters, diaries or pictures, which are in direct connection to the deceased person, can be added. This would not impact the final quality of the diamonds.
