Remembrance Diamond

Would you wear a diamond (synthetic) made from the ashes of a deceased loved one?

No - I'm not making it up - there's a company that does just this.


"The ashes-to-diamond process is fairly straightforward, they send 200 grams of cremated remains to its laboratory in Switzerland. The carbon from those ashes is then filtered out to more than 99% purity and refined into silky, black graphite. A machine then applies volcano-like pressure and temperature: Nine hours later, a synthetic diamond -- which has a bluish rather than clear tint, owing to boron found naturally in the body -- is born."

I've heard of this before. I'd get one made if my husband or kids died.

My close friend did this when her son died at just 10 days old. I think it's great. He'll always be with her.

Yes. If my grandpa was cremated I would have had it done. I think it is a wonderful idea.

So did she use that Swiss company?
