Turn Your Loved One’s Cremated Remains Into Diamonds! 

Over recent years there has been more and more fascinating and unexpected ways to memorialize loved ones who have passed. Recently at ABC, we had a special request from a client to send their loved one’s ashes to Switzerland where they will compress and super-heat the cremated ashes and turn them into a man-made diamond that can be worn, cherished, and passed on for generations!
How It Works:
The human body is 18% carbon. 2% of this carbon remains after cremation, and it is this carbon that is used to make the diamonds
It all begins with a chemical process that extracts the carbon from the departed’s ashes. This carbon is then heated to convert it into graphite. That graphite is then heated to as much as 2,700 degrees Fahrenheit and subjected to forces as high as 870,000 pounds per square inch. The colour of the finished diamond, which can range from white to dark blue, depends on the boron content of the ashes of the deceased.
So, if you’re contemplating what to do with your remains after you pass, you can always have them compressed into the diamond that you may never have been able to afford in real life! Or if you’re looking for a more affordable and practical pre-arrangement options, jewellery, cremation or burial containers, transfer services, or general assistance, please take the time to browse our website or contact us  today!
