The way to your personal memorial diamond
After the death of a loved one, the bereaved are often faced with many decisions that need to be made quickly. In addition to cremation or burial, a memorial diamond is also an option to consider. It is no more difficult to organize than any other form of burial and also leaves something everlasting.
Creating a memorial diamond from the ashes or hair of a deceased person, usually takes between four and eight months. This time is needed for the diamond to grow to the desired size. Meanwhile, we are in regular contact with your or your undertaker, who will keep you informed of our every step.
Step 1: Find a funeral home
Our funeral partners are known for their empathetic and competent care in the case of a death. Contact us and we will recommend an ALGORDANZA funeral partner in your area, without obligation, who will carry out the desired memorial diamond for you or your relatives.
If there is no funeral home with an existing partnership to ALGORDANZA in your area, we will send you all the necessary documents so that your trusted funeral director can initiate the creation of a memorial diamond through ALGORDANZA even without a prior partnership.
Step 2: Transfer of ashes or hair
Step 3: A cremation diamond from ashes
When an adult is cremated, up to 4 kg of ashes can be produced. To create a memorial diamond, however, it is not the volume of the ash that is decisive, but its carbon content. As a rule, 5 grams of hair or 500 grams of ashes are sufficient to ensure the creation of an ALGORDANZA Cremation Diamond.
The remaining cremation ashes
If you choose an ALGORDANZA Pure ash diamond, you decide what happens to the remaining ashes:
- Extracting all of the carbon from the whole amount of ashes sent to ALGORDANZA. Select this option if no burial place is desired.
- Removal of required amount of ashes in Switzerland and returning remaining ashes to origin: Only the required portion of the ash is removed. The ashes that are not used can be returned to the original sender.
- Gathering of unused ashes by family and/or friends (only in Switzerland):
Relatives can collect the unused ashes from us personally.
- Scattering of the remaining ashes in Switzerland by ALGORDANZA:
The ALGORDANZA AG is partnered with Immer und Ewig AG which owns their own forest, used exclusively for the scattering of human ashes. The forest cemetery is called Pax Montana near the southern region of Switzerland called Poschiavo.
