Remembrance diamonds 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. Heart In Diamond also offers the option of creating your own diamond which follows a step by step process of the four C’s of diamonds.
Processing the death of a loved one takes people on a journey that they would normally avoid. The seven stages of grief include Shock & Denial, Pain & Guilt, Anger & Bargaining, Reflection & Loneliness, Adjustment, Reconstruction and, finally, Acceptance & Hope. As hard as these seven stages are on the people left behind, it is important to note that people who are dying also go through these stages.
Heart In Diamond is changing the way that people can commemorate their lives through memorial diamonds. Cremation diamonds can be chosen while someone is still alive and allows them to be included in the process of how they want to be remembered.

You may have heard of the Hope Diamond, and if you haven’t, it is a world-famous diamond that 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 diamonds. 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, mourning jewelry has been around 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 jewelry as a way of commemorating their loved one’s lives. That means for over 150 years people have been using memorial jewelry to share their fondest memories of their loved ones through the fascination that so many people hold towards diamonds.
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 all together, but Heart In Diamond believes 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 that 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. Heart In Diamond realizes 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.
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 to develop their diamonds. 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 1% 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.
