Memorial Diamond: Selection and Costs

The ALGORDANZA Memorial Diamond reflects the uniqueness of the deceased.

Your Memorial Diamond is manufactured individually upon your request. The costs of a Diamond Burial are comparable with a traditional burial site including the care of the grave.

Select your Memorial Diamond Option

Choose your preferred Carbon source for your unique ALGORDANZA Memorial Diamond:

The ALGORDANZA Pure Memorial Diamond is created solely out of the Carbon isolated from the cremated remains of the beloved deceased. At least 500g of cremated remains are needed to create one or more cremation diamonds. 

The ALGORDANZA Hair Memorial Diamond is made out of the Carbon isolated from the hair of a beloved, deceased person. At least 5g of hair of the deceased person is needed. The Memorial Diamond made out of hair is a unique option if no cremation is desired or (religio-)culturally accepted.

In cases where not enough cremated remains or hair of the deceased person are available, a second Carbon source can be added. As a second Carbon source personal letters, diaries or pictures, which are in direct connection to the deceased person, can be send along.

Costs of Memorial Diamonds

The costs of a diamond burial usually do not surpass the price of a traditional burial along with the care of the grave. The Memorial Diamond can be an addition to the traditional urn interment, or even replace it.

The prices start at CHF 3'500 for a 0.3ct rough diamond. The price depends on the preferred size and cut of your personal Memorial Diamond.

The ALGORDANZA Memorial Diamonds are exclusively offered by partners or institutes. Depending on additional services the prices can vary. Please contact a funeral home or partner nearby. We are pleased to recommend you one.

Selection of Diamond Cuts and Sizes

Choose your preferred size and your favorite cut for your individual Memorial Diamond or decide for the rough diamond – as the diamond, uniquely, formed itself.

We entrust your personal Memorial Diamond only to sophisticated experts to cut it by hand. The size and cut can vary depending on the shape and size of the rough diamond.

The ALGORDANZA Memorial Diamond shines in exceptional bluish shades and is the manifestation of its uniqueness. The color depends on the element boron contained within the diamond. We do not affect the colorization of your personal ALGORDANZA Memorial Diamond.

The Memorial Diamond is a memorable heirloom over generations.

Setting the Memorial Diamond into Jewellery

It is beautiful to see, how the Memorial Diamonds are set into jewellery reflecting the uniqueness of each beloved person. For that reason, we have refrained from offering an ALGORDANZA Jewellery Collection.

If you like to have your Memorial Diamond set into a ring or pendant please get in touch with a gold smith nearby.
