ALGORDANZA is the world's leading producer of Memorial Diamonds, offering the utmost care and respect to your loved one's ashes and hair. The first Memorial Diamond facility was started in Switzerland in 2004 with the idea of bringing a new and unique way to remember our loved ones who have passed away.

Why a cremation diamond as a unique burial alternative?

Memories to cherish and hold on to

Cremation diamonds capture the essence of a loved one 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, or passed on to children as a heirloom.

More affordable than traditional funerals

Cremation diamonds start at £2,500 for a 0.3 ct rough diamond. 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.
