Funeral Director Giving Ashes to Algordanza for Cremation Diamond

We guarantee authenticity and origin of ashes

We grow diamonds from ashes or hair with the utmost care and precision. We document our rigorous quality control with an Algordanza certificate as well as guarantee the diamond’s authenticity, weight, cut, colour and the origin of ashes or hair having been created from 100% of the delivered cremation ashes or hair. For added assurance, we document each step of the diamond growth process and provide every client updates.

Cooperation with funeral homes for security

If you trusted your funeral director to cremate your loved one, then you trust them to hand over their ashes to the most trusted cremation diamond producer. Algordanza is a member of many international funeral organisations, here are just a few. Algordanza also does not offer a “Starter-Kit” which makes one feel obligated to order a diamond after spending the initial cost, and do you really want to separate the required amount of ashes yourself?

Algordanza UK is committed to integrity and 100% transparency. We are proud to say that we are the only ashes to diamonds company in the world to offer lab visits. 

Our diamond lab is nestled in the tranquil mountains and forests of Switzerland. Here we invite you to visit us and observe how we grow diamonds from ashes or hair. We want you to feel confident that Algordanza is the right choice to make your memorial diamond.

I researched a number of memorial diamond companies before choosing Algordanza. It’s clear to me that they are the industry leader. What attracted me to them originally was the transparency of their process, but my dealings with Algordanza confirmed that I was making the right choice. Algordanza talked me through the process without a hard sell approach. All very patient, informative and understanding during a very upsetting time. When I decided to go ahead a personal meeting was quickly set up to collect my Dad’s ashes. Throughout the process I received regular updates.

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 no one expected. I would not hesitate to recommend Algordanza, and I will cherish my diamond forever.

I cannot recommend Algordanza highly enough! Without a doubt the very best customer service I have ever received. Better still, the memorial diamonds we had made are absolutely beautiful! They took the time to explain the whole process and answer all of our questions in superb detail. Hoping for two diamonds of a very specific size, wanting to safely hand deliver the ashes in person, all on a very tight schedule in time for our wedding – we knew we were asking a lot! But Algordanza's team bent over backwards to make this happen.
