Cremation diamonds are real diamonds made from the carbon left in cremated remains, or from the carbon in someone’s hair. Cremation diamonds are known by a few names including memorial diamonds and eternal diamonds.
They are grown using a lab grown application process within a high pressure, high temperature (HPHT) machine, first purifying the cremated remains (ashes) to extract the carbon left within. Cremated remains contain 1-4% carbon depending on the age of the person, their diet, and other factors.
The cost for turning ashes into diamonds varies based on the carat size and diamond color you want. Cost begins at $2,999 for a .1 carat blue, yellow or colorless diamond.
Cost goes up based on the amount of time the diamond is in the machine since we can only grow one diamond at a time. Larger carat sizes must be in the machine longer, and colors outside of yellow, blue or colorless must go through an additional coloration process. Larger diamonds are also most difficult grow so the pricing reflects the complexity of hand-crafting a large diamond. These factors are what makes the price increase.
Absolutely! Eterneva diamonds are real diamonds. Diamonds are composed of carbon, and there is carbon in cremated remains. Like mined diamonds, we also grade and certify Eterneva diamonds to prove authenticity.
We guarantee your diamond will meet the minimum carat weight you ordered and be free of visible inclusions. If we don’t meet these standards, we’ll grow you an additional diamond to ensure we do!
