Heart in Diamond is a unique company that turns ashes into diamonds as a way of remembering a legacy and beautiful life lived. Heart in Diamond specializes in developing lab-grown gemstones that allow families to express their grief by sharing what made their loved one special and turning those memories into memorial diamonds.
Cremation rates on the rise
Ever since the early 1900s, there has been a rise in the rate of cremations versus burials. This number has gone up so much in fact, that for two years in a row, cremations have actually outnumbered traditional burials in the United States.
Naturally, with this increase in the rate of cremation, people are looking for new and innovative ways to honor their loved ones with the ashes that are left behind. Over the years there have been several different options for cremains, such as storing the ashes in an urn or even scattering them in a place that was dear to your loved one, but truly none of these options brought one closer physically to the deceased for eternity. Making diamonds out of ashes does.
Cremation gems customized to each client
Funeral diamonds can come in a large selection of popular cuts and styles such as brilliant, princess and radiant cut. They also have a selection of colors that you can choose from to complete the stone that will remember your loved one. These are just some of the facts about diamonds.
Remembrance jewels don’t have to be a one-size-suits all approach. Ashes, and hair, that are turned into diamonds can be shaped into small, medium or big cuts with a reflection of colors to match. We also offers the option of creating your own diamond which follows a step-by-step process of the four C’s, which are:

Diamonds from cremated ashes are your loved one’s imprint on your life
Once your loved one has passed away, or is passing away, you may be forced to deal with funeral homes or crematories. These places can seem like uncomfortable spots to talk about your loved one as you often meet under the saddest circumstances. Even as you prepare for your loved one to pass, you soon begin to realize that you will need someone to cremate their body into ashes or prepare their body for burial. End of life care is never easy.
Heart In Diamond fills a need that many families seek as their loved ones make the transition from this life to the next. We work with families, and funeral homes, to ensure that your loved one is treated with the utmost respect and care that they deserve. Our company creates laboratory diamonds that are grown from the extracted pure carbon from a loved one’s cremated ashes.
Cremation diamonds can be developed before, or after, your loved one has passed. The difference is that hair is used before and a combination of hair and ashes is used after they have moved on to their next journey.
Heart In Diamond makes it easy to order cremation diamonds
The process of having a precious stone grown from the remains of a loved one is simple with Heart In Diamond. You begin by meeting with a consultant who will explain cremation diamond options that are available.
These consultants are able to help you decide on color and cut by listening to you share your memories about how you best remember your loved one.
The consultants will then work with you to decide the best style to complement the stone you have chosen. This includes the setting that you would like to have, so it can travel with you wherever you go.
Once you have made these decisions you will collect the ashes, or hair, needed and send them to Heart In Diamond. If you don’t have enough hair or ashes Heart In Diamond can add additional generic carbon to finish your piece. You are also provided a tracking link that provides you with online updates about your diamond’s progress. Most people wait an average of 70-120 days, which is the guaranteed fastest production time available.
Once the process is complete a consultant will deliver your treasured memorial in person. If not, you will receive it via authorized courier.
With Heart In Diamond, anyone can afford a lasting memorial
Unfortunately the amount paid for funerals and all related services is on the rise. The total amount paid for a funeral service can be as low as $4,000 but as high as $15,000. This leaves many families with the decision to cremate their loved ones. Cremation can also run upwards of $4,000. Even when you decide to cremate, many families are left with not knowing what to do with their loved one’s ashes.
Cremation diamonds serve as reminders of lives lost
You may have heard of the Hope Diamond, and if you haven’t, it is a world-famous gemthat was named for a French merchant Jean Baptiste Tavernier. The Hope Diamond was originally mined in India and is 45.52 carats. Many people claim that the Hope Diamond is cursed and have even written books about it throughout history.
Diamond stories exist across the globe. From the Great Star of Africa to the Centenary Diamond, people are always intrigued by the beauty and history that accompany these beautiful jewels. It can be easily agreed that diamonds are a “talking” piece when you meet someone. This is why cremations diamonds are a natural choice when choosing to honour a loved one. Historically, people have worn tributes to their lost loved ones since the Victorian era when Queen Victoria sent the country into mourning after her husband, Prince Albert, passed away. This means that even in the 1860’s people were using cremation memorials as a way of commemorating their loved one’s lives. That means for over 150 years people have been using diamonds to share their fondest memories of their loved ones.
Turn talking about death into the celebration of life
For many people, talking about dying or death can cause them to cringe. It is scary to think about leaving this earth forever. It can seem even scarier for those loved ones who are being left behind as they have a lot of decisions to make for the person they love.
Heart In Diamond allows you to open up the conversation to what you want to happen to your ashes. Some people choose to avoid talking about death altogether, but we believe that the conversation of death does not need to be avoided. Cremation diamonds can change the ways that families approach the dying, or death, process by turning the conversation into a celebration of life.
The cremation business can seem cold, and frightening, when you realize that you will never physically see that loved one again. You are then left with ashes, which family members are just as confused about what to do with.
Unfortunately, death is forever. We realize that this transition is permanent and therefore; designed a diamond that would last forever as well. No one really knows what happens after we pass away but Heart In Diamond can secure a piece of your loved one forever through the cremation diamond process.
What do mined diamonds and lab-grown diamonds have in common?
Is that real or synthetic? This is often not the question that is asked to people when they show a diamond to a friend or family member. Most people are asked where they got it and what the special occasion was when they received it. Diamonds allow us to share the stories that matter.
Synthetic diamonds are economically better for the environment because they do not require that people dig into the ground, use chemicals or toxins to remove the diamonds and then leave the marks on the earth behind. Aside from the environment, the human factor is also considered when dealing with diamonds. Blood diamonds have become well known over the past decade as people have been exposed to the truth behind how diamonds are extracted and sold around the world.
Heart in Diamond creates their diamonds using a scientific process. This process does not leave a harsh impact on the environment, nor does it require that children go out and dig for a diamond to receive one percent of its worth. Heart in Diamond allows you to remember your loved one without the guilt of purchasing a diamond that could carry negative thoughts of how it was mined and who mined it.
