The Memorial Diamond as Graceful Memory

The Memorial Diamond is, compared to traditional forms of burial, your very own personal place of remembrance, mourning and joy. This precious remembrance can be treasured individually by all members of the family in a beautiful transparent diamond display, next to a portrait or set into a ring or pendant. Ask a goldsmith for advice.

The ALGORDANZA Memorial Diamond is a memorable heirloom over generations.

From Ashes or Hair to Diamond – How Memorial Diamonds are created

In our own ALGORDANZA production in Switzerland blue, synthetic Memorial Diamonds with the same physical and chemical features as natural diamonds are created.

From at least 500g of cremated remains or 5g of hair we extract the remaining Carbon, which we then turn in Graphite and afterwards transform to a Memorial Diamond. To do so we have to simulate the extreme pressure and the high temperatures, which are also necessary for the natural transformation of diamonds over thousands of years inside the earth's crust.
