Diamonds of cremation ashes of dead people and animals

More and more people are now opting instead of storing the ash of their loved one in an urn or scattering it into something tangible: the “forging” of it into diamonds.

This is possible because carbon is the second most common chemical element in the human body and diamonds are made by compressing carbon. In recent years, more methods have been developed to make artificial diamonds in the laboratory.

This makes it possible for people to keep their loved one with them forever. We bring joy from something that means sadness to many people.

Soulgem offers you even more possibilities, such as creating a memorial diamond made from a minimum of 50 grams of hair or fur.

For example, to seal a commitment in a wedding ring or for a special occasion to surprise a friend with a Soulgem.

Cremation process

Making a diamond from a deceased person starts with a cremation. The ash obtained weighs between 225 and 450 grams, the majority of which consists of carbon dust.

Minimum 50 grams of ash

We need approximately 50 grams of ashes to create a commemorative diamond. Hereby we can guarantee that there is enough carbon to create a diamond.
