Frequently Asked Questions

Can you help me set my Diamond?

Absolutely! We work with jewelers to help you find the perfect setting for your Diamond if you’d like our help.

Some folks like to have a brand new piece of jewelry, and others like to put the Diamond in a piece of jewelry they already own. Whichever option you prefer, we’re here to help you get the Diamond in its setting so you can begin bringing your loved one with you in the next chapter.

Instead of cremated ashes, can I use other sources to create a Diamond?

You are able to include other sources of carbon to supplement with anything that has significance to you, which could include (but is not limited to) clippings of hair, cotton clothing, dried flowers, written letters. We ask that you make sure anything you send is completely dry.

Is there enough carbon in ashes to create a Diamond?

Yes, there is more than enough carbon in ashes to grow a Diamond. We work closely with TDI Brooks International, a world-renowned carbon testing and forensic organization, to test the carbon contents in cremated remains, hair, and aquamation ashes. 

The cremated remains sample contained 3.28% carbon, the hair sample to contained 36.66% carbon, and the aquamation sample to contained 16.91% carbon.

How much pressure does it take to turn coal into a Diamond?
