Dianne was remarkably beautiful inside and out. She grew up with her siblings on a rural farm in Georgia, raised by their grandparents. She loved to sing in her church choir and she was the runner-up in the Miss Georgia Peach Pageant. She also had a huge heart for her family, and was a very caring, very loving person. She loved her siblings and she raised her two children as a single mother. Dianne was extremely hard-working in her love for family as she was able to send both of her children, Nicole and Todd, to earn their college degrees and eventually grad school. She was blessed with two grandchildren as well, who she absolutely adored and loved deeply.
We are honored to grow a blue diamond to match Dianne's caring blue eyes for her sister, Dawna. To honor Dianne and their sweet relationship, the diamond will have "Sisters Forever" engraved on it.

We'll share pictures, videos, and
of the process,
as we go.
Dianne’s ashes are back at the Eterneva labs, and we are ready to begin the journey to becoming a diamond. Now, Dianne's ashes will be put into a crucible that will go through a purification process. When that is finished, her ashes will be carbon in the form of graphite. This is the material we will put in the diamond growth cell to grow her diamond. In your next update, you’ll get to see the graphite as we open the crucible for the first time. Stay tuned!
Dianne’s ashes have been purified and are now pure carbon in the form of graphite. The purified ashes are on their way to Germany where the best of the best memorial diamond growth scientists work. There, they will put the graphite into a growth cell and then into a machine that mimics the earth’s mantle in pressure and temperature. Soon, we’ll be sending an update of her rough diamond!
Love you bunches!
Dianne’s rough diamond is beautiful! Now, the diamond will head to Antwerp, Belgium to be hand cut by Eterneva’s master diamond cutters. Master diamond cutters spend decades perfecting their craft, and hand cut every single facet of the diamond. Diamonds have upward of 58 facets. In fact, one of the world’s youngest master diamond cutters will be working on Dianne’s diamond. He is 56years old.
Here's the rough diamond -
Dianne’s diamond has been cut, polished, engraved and graded. It is absolutely perfect, and so brilliant! This remarkable transformation and journey is almost complete. Next, the diamond will begin planning for the homecoming.

When we lose a remarkable person, the most important thing we can do is keep talking about them!
The purpose of this page is to celebrate Dianne. By recording stories about her, we allow future generations to get a sense of who she is (versus impersonal facts in an obituary).
