Memorial Diamonds make Lasting Memories
The diamond burial is one of the most beautiful and everlasting ways to remember your loved one. A memorial diamond is an eternal symbol of love and remembrance created from the ashes of your loved one.
The memorial or burial diamond, in contrast to a traditional burial, is your very own personal remembrance that you can carry with you in celebration of the life of your loved one. This precious remembrance can be placed in a beautiful transparent diamond display or set in a memorial keepsake such as a ring, a pendant or other piece of jewelry or memento. Ask your jeweler for advice in creating a memorial keepsake.
The ALGORDANZA My Memorial Diamond is a memorable heirloom that will be treasured for generations.

From Ashes to Diamonds – How are Memorial Diamonds created?
In our ALGORDANZA production facility in Switzerland, memorial diamonds with the same physical and chemical features as natural diamonds are created.
To create a memorial diamond, we have to simulate the conditions, under which a natural diamond forms itself over decades. Diamonds are created under vast pressure and enormous heat naturally in the earth.
The carbon, isolated solely from the provided cremation ashes, is submitted to our high temperature high pressure machine. The molecular structure of the carbon first becomes graphite and as more heat and pressure are applied, the atomic structure of the diamond is formed.
Selection and Prices of Memorial Diamonds
An ALGORDANZA Memorial Diamond is created as a unique rough diamond, as it does in nature. We offer a variety of cuts and sizes to choose from making it easy to create your own unique memorial diamond.
Our experienced experts will hand cut your memorial diamond and create a one-of-a-kind brilliant, emerald, asscher, princess, radiant or heart shaped stone.
A diamond burial usually does not exceed the cost of a traditional burial along with the care of the grave. The price of a memorial diamond starts at $2,999 for a 0.3 ct rough diamond.
