LESS STIGMA. MORE CONVERSATION.

Grief Wellness
Reimagined

We’re flipping the script on a pragmatic experience: a person you love will die, is dying, or has died. What are you going to do? These experiences are just as life-changing as a birth. They define us. They transform us. And we think it’s time we talk about them without stigma so that we can honor the lives of those we love and share their stories to inspire our days.

Our Mission

We're for the living

Eterenva is for the living, and our focus is on grief wellness. We’ve come to realize the eight-month journey to the diamond is as important as the diamond itself. Memorializing a loved one will be one of the most poignant and challenging chapters of a person’s life, and there’s joy to be found amongst the pain if they can be active through their grief, and pour themselves into meaningful projects and rituals.

MEMORIALIZATION

Cremation Diamonds Are Changing How We Mourn

Grief isn’t a topic that is talked about all that often. Most of us feel awkward when around those who are grieving. We don’t know what to say, how to say, etc. As a result, so many of us end up quiet –– avoiding the elephant in the room. Cremation diamonds help to change that, putting a bright and beautiful memorial front and center.

How My Grief Has Turned Me into a Diamond

Diamonds are only diamonds because of heat and pressure that the world puts the dust, or carbon, through. Without the immense heat and pressure we would just have, essentially, dirt. You are making something beautiful and indestructible because of this process. I find that this is a beautiful metaphor for the heart wrenching feeling of grief.

The word “should” is….tricky. I “should” workout 5 times a week. I “should” spend less time on my phone. I “should” be doing more. I “should” be feeling different than the way I am right now.
