3 Simple Steps to a Diamond Burial
Step 1: Contact Algordanza UK
After the passing of a beloved person the family is faced with many decisions, which have to be made promptly. A diamond burial is just as convenient and simple to organise as any other type of burial or remembrance.
Step 2: Securing the Ashes
Most Ashes to Diamonds companies want you to send your loved one’s ashes through the mail, which is often lost, stolen or sent to the wrong address.
We understand that handling your loved one’s ashes or remains can be overwhelmingly emotional, therefore we offer three options.
Option 1: ALGORDANZA UK will travel anywhere within the UK to personally secure your ashes or hair, whether from you or your funeral director.
Option 2: Alternatively, if you would prefer to personally hand over the ashes/hair yourself, and visit our lab in Switzerland, please contact us to arrange a visit.
Option 3: We can provide secured shipment of collected ashes or hair to our ALGORDANZA Swiss Lab free of charge.
Step 3: Sign our Contract with Peace of Mind
Once you have decided on the source, cut and size of your cremation diamond, we will arrange an appointment to visit you personally in order to sign the necessary documents in order to create your cremation diamond.
A unique reference number will be provided to you for your future tracking purposes, and 50% of the payment is required at this stage. This unique Algordanza reference number will be etched into the girdle of your cremation diamond with a laser confirming authenticity.
Your Diamond is Ready
Once our Swiss lab has received the ashes or hair, it will take approximately (depending on the size) 4 to 8 months for the growth of a cremation diamond.
Once the process of making your cremation diamond has started you will be sent updates for each stage of the process.
Once your cremation diamond is finished, we will arrange to deliver your diamond to you personally. The remaining 50% payment is due upon completion.
Some Things to Consider
Who is the Cremation Diamond for?
Would you like one or two larger memorial diamonds created as a remembrance of your loved one? Such diamonds could be displayed at home for all family members to see or made into jewellery such as rings or pendants. Depending on the amount of ashes and available, multiple diamonds can be made.
Family Cremation Diamonds
Would you like a limited number (up to 4) smaller diamonds made for each family member to remember their lost loved one in their own way? Depending on the amount of ashes available we can make multiple diamonds for each family member.
The Diamond's Carbon Source
ALGORDANZA can grow diamonds from the cremated ashes of a lost loved one, or we can use their hair. For more information on how ashes or hair are turned into diamonds and why ALGORDANZA is the world’s first choice for turning ashes into diamonds.
If you have any questions about the process of turning ashes to diamonds or want to make arrangements to visit our production facilities in Switzerland, please contact Kevin Foy your ALGORDANZA representative for UK and Ireland.
