Necklace For Ashes: 4 Frequently Asked Questions About Diamonds From Ashes
It is not new for some people to keep some of the ashes of their departed loved ones in tiny necklace pendant vials and wear them as keepsake jewelry. But did you know that you can produce diamonds from ashes?
Unlike pendant vials that contain ashes, diamonds from ashes are more discreet. You will never know that the necklace is for ashes. It looks just like a regular precious diamond.
This article will answer the most frequently asked questions about diamonds from ashes:
FAQ #1: HOW DO ASHES TURN INTO DIAMONDS?
Diamonds are mined deep in the Earth. Diamonds are made of carbon. Under intense heat and pressure in the Earth’s crust, the carbon deposits form carbon atoms and grow crystals.
Cremation jewellery replicates this process in a lab with a controlled environment. Instead of carbon deposits under the soil, the ashes from the cremated remains become the base for the diamond. The lab will remove other substances in the ashes, such as salt, to achieve 99% carbon.
The carbon will be put in a chamber where it will receive extreme pressure and temperature to form a diamond.
FAQ #2: WHOSE ASHES CAN YOU TURN INTO DIAMONDS
You can use a person or an animal to turn them into diamonds. It all depends on the bereaved family. Some, due to the religious belief of the departed person, do not allow this process, whilst others are open-minded about a necklace for ashes.
Pet owners can also look for a pet cremation jewelry company in Singapore that can turn into diamonds. This way, they can still keep a part of their furry friend with them.
FAQ #3: HOW LONG DOES THE PROCESS TAKE?
The process of turning and producing diamonds from the ashes could take at least three months or more to finish. Growing diamonds alone could take up to three months. Then the stone still has to undergo cutting, grading, engraving, colouring, and setting processes, which could take at least four months.
FAQ #4: HOW DO YOU TAKE CARE OF YOUR CREMATION DIAMONDS?
The aftercare of your cremation diamonds is the same as natural diamonds! Avoid wearing your necklace for ashes during swimming. You can clean the stone by soaking it in warm soapy water and eliminating the debris using a soft-bristled toothbrush. Always check if the prongs hold the diamond securely.
