High-quality created diamonds have been present for many years. These diamonds are created by placing carbon, the primary element of all diamonds, in conditions that recreate the forces of earth. We merely choose an exact carbon source to create a beautiful and meaningful memorial for you and your family.
Simply put, we have discovered how to capture the carbon that was always present, and until now, lost during cremation. Once captured, this carbon is placed in one of our unique diamond presses replicating the awesome forces of nature 窶 heat and pressure. A diamond that takes millions of years to occur naturally can now be created from the carbon of your loved one in a matter of weeks.
The entire process of creating this beautiful, unique, and certified LifeGem memorial diamond involves cremation, creation, and faceting.
