Ashes to diamonds cost factors
Since a diamond actually grows over time, the diamond’s end size could be slightly smaller or slightly larger than requested. If the diamond is smaller, the price will be reduced, however if the diamond is larger, no extra cost will incur.
Cremation diamond prices vary based on whether the carbon source is hair or cremated remains, the carat size and whether the cremation diamond is cut or polished. All other fees are included.

Value of Algordanza diamond clarity
Algordanza developed a very high-quality purification process to turn cremation ashes into diamonds in 2003 and has been constantly improving it ever since. Our process creates carbon that is 99.99% pure which grows beautiful colourless to blue diamonds.
Colourless and blue memorial diamonds are the most difficelt to grow, Algordanza specializes in these very rare and precious cremation diamonds.
Cremation diamond colour facts
Due to the element boron ligated to our bodies naturally, ALGORDANZA cremation diamonds can be perfectly colourless (very little boron present) or be very dark blue (large amount of boron present).
If a cremation diamond is yellow, amber or black, then impurities have been introduced accidentally through poor processing or intentionally into the diamond grid. Such processing is less expensive because less time and poorer quality chemicals are used. Red, pink and green diamonds cost slightly more than yellow diamonds, because they are yellow diamonds that have been bombarded with radiation causing the diamond latice to break down, making them weaker.
ALGORDANZA does not influence the colouration of their diamonds.
Ashes to diamonds technology
In order for a lab grown diamond to understand how it should grow, a real diamond seed is needed to start the diamond synthesis. We use real diamonds to start the growth process.
The larger the cremation diamond should be, the longer it needs to stay in a controlled environment in order to properly grow, which is a major cost factor in time and energy.
Algordanza also has the most sophisticated HPHT presses made in Germany.
Prices for cremation diamond cuts
Algordanza offers six cuts for cremation diamonds; Radiant, Princess, Heart, Asscher, Brilliant and Emerald. Having a memorial diamond cut costs more than leaving it rough (uncut) all cuts cost the same except for the heart cut.
The heart cut costs £500 GBP more due to its complexity and cannot be made on small diamonds because the cut needs a larger surface area.
Uncut costs less and is more unique
Rough diamonds or uncut diamonds, are preferred by many clients because they reflect their loved one’s “Rough Edges”, both having been naturally formed. No two rough diamonds are the same and are therefore unique.
Diamonds from ashes or hair that are rough (uncut) are simply polished to remove sharp edges, which reduces threir price compared to a cut diamond.
Free pick-up and delivery
As an included service, we personally pick up and deliver your loved one’s ashes or hair and also personally deliver the finished memorial diamond to you or your funeral home at your request.
We promise that the utmost care and repect is given to the ashes of your lost loved one, that is why we deal with thousands of funeral homes throughout the world, as added security for you. It may cost a little more, but isn’t the security and peace of mind worth that extra cost?
The ashes of your lost loved one are precious, don’t just send them through the mail, sometimes they are lost, stolen or simply sent to the wrong address.
Each ALGORDANZA cemation diamond is inscribed with a unique authentication code as well as the ALGORDANZA logo at no extra cost.
A personal inscription may also be engraved on your memorial keepsake for an extra fee, but this laser inscription is only visible with a microscope. Depending on the size of the diamond, between 25 and 50 characters are possible.
