Why a memorial diamond as a unique burial alternative?

Memories to cherish and hold on to

By creating cremation diamonds from the ashes of a loved one, you capture the essence of that special person and instead of a traditional urn stored at home or at a cemetery, cremation diamonds made from your loved ones’ hair or ashes can be kept close with you at home or even worn in a beautiful piece of jewellery.

More affordable than traditional funerals

Cremation diamonds start at £2,040 for a 0.3ct rough diamond made from hair and £3,000 for a 0.3ct rough diamond made from ashes. The diamond’s material (ash or hair), size, cut, and optional laser inscription of your cremation diamond will determine the final price of your diamond. However, the cremation diamond will still cost less than a standard burial, which can cost up to £7,500 or more (Average traditional funeral in the SE of England).

Ethically better Diamonds

Many natural diamonds are still obtained through severe human rights abuse as well as the exploitation of children, workers and whole communities. It can cause devastation and severe damage to the land as well as the local water supply. Choosing a cremation diamond made from ashes or hair with the same properties as a natural diamond reduces these very negative effects.
