Diamonds setting process
Whereas natural diamonds are mined and require high temperatures and pressure underground, EverDear & Co. Memorial Diamonds are created from the ashes or hair of your loved one. By recreating the necessary variables in the lab to form these precious jewels, stunning diamonds are cultivated without the negative aspects and environmental degradation associated with natural diamonds. Beginning with cremation ashes or a lock of hair, every sample is expertly prepared to ensure the highest quality. The carbon is extracted, purified and then placed inside a High Pressure, High Temperature (HPHT) press. After being heated to over 2000°C and submitted to immense pressure, a Memorial Diamond emerges from the carbon purified from ashes, serving as a perfect homage to your loved one.
How are memorial diamonds made?
A memorial diamond is created over three stages: carbon separation, carbon refinement, and HPHT diamond crystallisation. Each step is meticulously performed to ensure the utmost quality.
During the first stage, a carbon sample is extracted from cremation ashes or a lock of hair.
The carbon is then purified and graphitised. From here, it is placed in an HPHT press to form what is known as a diamond seed. From this seed, a new diamond will sprout.
The diamond seed is inserted into an HPHT press, where the final metamorphosis takes place. The carbon begins to crystallise around the seed, growing atom by atom into a beautiful diamond. Once the transformation is complete, the gem is cut and polished, ready to be worn and cherished for years to come.
