Customer Reviews

Algordanza was founded in 2004 in Switzerland with the idea to isolate carbon from human cremains and create a Memorial Diamond from ashes. After 15 years, Algordanza are selling over 1,000 diamonds a year with a presence in over 35 countries worldwide. Algordanza UK was established in 2014 and opened the memorial diamond service to UK customers. Many of our UK customers celebrate their own or their loved ones life with our memorial diamonds and jewellery and also as an exquisite reminder of the person they love. 


Below are some of our UK customer testimonials we received over Google, Facebook and emails. Some of our customers have shared images of their jewellery from ashes into diamonds. 

"I have just received the diamond grown from my beloved husband's ashes and am so amazed how beautiful it is and how much it soothes my heart. It is absolutely beautiful - so clear and sparkly - and I just keep looking at it.   I am so glad I decided to have it made.  I would like to thank Kevin so much for his kind and caring help through the whole process.  Thank you again Kevin and Algordanza."

"I lost my husband of 23 years, and was left with a broken heart. More than anything, I was looking for a special way honour his memory in a lasting way. After researching Memorial diamonds online, I determined that Algordanza Memorial diamonds was the best and most reputable company in the business. I contacted Kevin Foy at Algordanza UK, we met up and I quickly decided to go ahead. 

6 months ago, I ordered my memorial diamond made from my husbands ashes as an eternally lasting keepsake of him. It is one of the most meaningful things I have ever done.

Throughout production, I received regular status updates and excellent service.
Last week, it was delivered to me in a beautiful wooden box and I finally got to see it. I was absolutely thrilled with the colour of the diamond, which was a sparkling shade of my favourite colour; blue.

One of the countries premier jewellers is currently helping me
incorporate the beautiful diamond into one of my favourite heart necklaces that my husband gave to me. A diamond cut, it has “Always & Forever” engraved in it, and so, I will be wearing him next to my heart. ❤️

I’m so happy to have my beautiful memorial diamond to remember my husband by, a beautiful stone of him to honour his memory and our life together. My love for him is eternal, just like my diamond."

ashes made into diamonds

Hi Kevin, I had been meaning to email you today. Our trip was great thank you. The diamonds are beautiful, just perfect! Thank you so much for all of your help and everything you have done for us. Alana also, who was super welcoming, staying late and helping with taxis etc. We can't thank you both enough! We got to enjoy the epic Swiss scenery this time from a small skiing village 20 minutes from Chur which was the cherry on the cake. Kind Regards.”- Daniel & Ilona, 2 x 0.15ct  diamonds of their loved one to go into their wedding rings (Berkshire, UK)

“ After losing my husband so suddenly I wanted to have something that was truly special to remember him especially for my children. As soon as I contacted Kevin he put me at ease and explained the process and the making of the Algordanza diamonds. Kevin provided an exceptional service and was very personal, kind and understanding at such a distressing time. He also kept me updated throughout the entire six month process of the diamonds being made. Kevin recently delivered the two diamonds that I had made for my children in person to me and I'm absolutely overjoyed with them! They were also slightly bigger than I ordered too as they had grown a little more in size. I cannot recommend Algordanza Diamonds enough and its such a special way to be able to treasure your loved ones. Thank you so much Kevin, you are a gem! ”- Tara Peter, 2 x 0.8ct rough diamonds (Salisbury, UK)

what to do with ashes

“ It was thanks to a random Internet article that I found Algordanza before my terminally ill husband died. I did the research and thought that this was the right thing for me to do as and when he succumbed to his illness. It felt very weird making what I termed a "pre-need enquiry," but this was handled with a kindness and compassion that simply confirmed my decision. My whim to drive his remains to Switzerland and hand him over in person was indulged, and I was given as much time as I needed to relinquish the urn containing his ashes.

I was particularly happy with the explanation of the process and the need to sign a waiver accepting that there was no guarantee as to the colour of the diamond that resulted from the transformation process. I wanted his stone to be a reflection of the man, and hoped that the stone I received would achieve this. It does.

I will confess to being a bit stunned at how tiny the stone was when I received it. And this is only a reflection of my stress at the time that I did this: I was shown several different examples of the finished size before all was complete. There's no doubt that for the same money I could have had a huge and stunning diamond (my sister told me I was robbed). But that's not the point..... now, all that remains of the man I adored rests close to my heart, and it is a huge comfort to me.

It's certain that this process isn't for everyone. But it was for me. And I have no hesitation in recommending Algordanza for their service and the quality of their product.” - Loic de lenclos, 0.3ct Emerald Diamond set into a white gold pendant (Hertfordshire, UK)
