Losing a beloved pet can be one of the hardest experiences in life. Whether it's a dog, cat, bird, or any other animal, pets hold a special place in our hearts and our families. They bring us joy, comfort, and companionship, and they leave us with cherished memories that last a lifetime. When they pass away, we may feel a sense of loss and emptiness, but pet owners can also find solace and gratitude in the memories we shared with them while they were with us.

One way to capture those memories and the remarkable spirit of your pet is to transform their ashes into a diamond that you can keep with you and wear. In this article, we will show you how Eterneva can turn your pet's cremated ashes into diamonds: the journey, the available options, and what you should know going in. You may find that turning your pet’s ashes into a diamond can be a transformative and healing process that can help to ease your grief, pay your respects, and gain closure.

How does Eterneva create diamonds from pet ashes?

Eterneva specializes in creating physical memorial keepsake diamonds from the ashes of your beloved pet or loved one. When you decide to transform your pet into a diamond and are ready to begin the process, Eterneva will send you a Welcome Kit that contains everything you need to package up your pet’s ashes or hair to send back to us. It also contains a booklet and video with detailed instructions and an explanation of the process you’re embarking on.

Your Eterneva Diamond Journey will involve the following steps:

·  Ash Collection. After your pet is cremated, a small amount of their ashes is sent to Eterneva's lab with the packaging provided in the Welcome Kit. The ashes are carefully labeled and tracked to ensure accuracy and confidentiality. It’s important to note that ashes and hair don’t expire, so you can use them to create a diamond whenever you’d like. Whether you start the process immediately after cremation or wait 20 years, the carbon will still be intact in the ashes or hair, waiting to be extracted and transformed into your diamond.

·  Carbon Conversion. The carbon from the ashes is extracted and purified using a high-temperature and high-pressure process. This unique carbon is then used to grow a diamond in the lab using advanced technology and scientific expertise.

·  Diamond Creation. The diamond grows over several more months in a controlled environment that mimics the intense conditions of the earth's mantle. The diamond is then cut and polished into your desired shape and size and inspected for quality and authenticity.

·  Delivery. Your finished diamond is delivered to you in a custom-made jewelry setting, along with a certificate of authenticity and a unique identifier that matches your pet's ashes.


Choosing the color and shape of your pet’s diamond

There are a variety of options available to customize your pet’s memorial diamond exactly how you want it. You can choose the color, shape, and carat weight of your pet's diamond, and even have their name engraved on it.

 Eterneva offers a wide selection of colors, including white, yellow, pink, blue, and green. The color is determined by the type of element that is added to the diamond during the growth process. For example, a pink diamond may contain nitrogen or boron to produce its hue, while a blue diamond may contain boron or hydrogen. We also offer a number of classic and modern diamond shapes, including the brilliant round cut, emerald cut, Asscher cut, princess cut, marquise cut, and more.

You can discuss your color and shape preferences for your lab-grown memorial diamond with Eterneva's team during your consultation, and they can guide you through the options and help you make a choice that reflects your pet's personality and legacy and your aesthetic vision.


What you should know before beginning your Diamond Journey

Before you begin the process of turning your beloved dog, cat, or other household pet into a diamond, there are some important things to consider.

·  Cremation. Arranging for your pet’s cremation can be an emotional process. If possible, you should consult with your veterinarian or a pet cremation service for the available options and guidance. Once the cremation process is complete and the ashes are in your possession, you only need about a half cup in order to extract the carbon that will be used for your diamond.

·  Options. You need to select the type of diamond jewelry you want to create, such as a ring, necklace, pendant, or earrings. Eterneva offers a variety of settings and styles to suit your taste and budget. Eterneva also provides a price calculator on our website so you can get a transparent estimate of the cost.

·  Timeline. Creating a diamond from pet ashes takes time, sometimes a year or more. Planning ahead for the timeframe is important, especially if you want to have the diamond for a special occasion or event. Throughout the process, Eterneva will send you regular updates and documentation so you can be a part of the journey from start to finish.

·  Healing. Turning your pet’s ashes or hair into a diamond is not just a financial transaction, but also an emotional tribute to your pet's memory. The diamond creation process provides you time to reflect on your pet's life, their energy and personality, and the memories you shared together.

Creating a diamond from your remarkable pet is a meaningful way to honor your pet's memory and keep them close to your heart. Eterneva's provides a safe, reliable, and respectful way to grow a unique and precious diamond that encompasses your pet's one-of-a-kind essence and spirit. And by choosing the color, shape, and style of the diamond and infusing it with the unique character of your loyal companion, you will gain a beautiful keepsake that will keep your pet’s memory alive and a part of your life so you can continue to enjoy their presence and share it with others.
