Diamond remains to be one of the most precious stones on earth. What you might not know is that, like most naturally occurring elements, a diamond is made from carbon. The element must be there regardless of whether the diamond is natural or artificial.
Cremation diamonds make use of the ashes of your friends and relatives. The process takes time, and the end product is nothing short of stunning. Heart In Diamond is incredibly quick to make them because we want you to be reunited with the remains of the people you love within the shortest time possible. Here are the steps that are involved:
1. You Request Instructions on How to Take the Hair and Ashes Sample
This is the first thing that you need to do if you want the cremains of your loved one to be turned into an exquisite cremation diamond. The instructions sent by Heart In Diamond help you to take the ideal sample of hair and ashes that are needed. After you have taken it, you can then send the sample to us for the creation of your diamond.
We use specific chemicals to extract the carbon from the ashes. We may have to mix your sample with generic carbon to make a mixture that will be enough to make the exact shape/cut of diamond you have requested. This is determined by the purity of your loved one’s ashes and the carbon that is obtained.
2. We Place the Carbon in an HPHT Machine
The next step is to put the extracted carbon in an HPHT machine. This is where the carbon is exposed to a certain high temperature and high-pressure environment. The device recreates the conditions that you can only find in the earth’s mantle where diamond is naturally formed. These include the required temperature of 2,000 degrees Celsius (3,632 degrees Fahrenheit) and a pressure of 60,000 atm. The great pressure and heat are required for the carbon atoms to transform into a hard, breathtaking diamond form.
3. We Polish Your Diamond and Set the Jewelry
Once we have the stone form, we start polishing it to fit your particular specifications. This will depend on the details that you gave the consultant before you submitted the cremains. The information includes the cut, color, and jewelry setting that you would prefer. We provide more than 500 choices, so you’ll have a variety to choose from depending on your tastes. You might also have to consider the personality and preferences of the deceased person and the nature of your relationship. After is it made, the cremation diamond is treated like any other natural diamond; it is graded according to its color, cut, clarity as well as size.
