In a Nutshell.......updated 17th October 2016

We make genuine memorial diamonds using carbon extracted from 'Cremains' or hair. 2006 we made the first diamond in the world using the umbilical cord of a baby. Our diamonds are NOT synthetic, faux, Aura, CZ, 'Moissanite' or made of DNA. They can (if required) be certified by the UK Assay Office [AnchorCert].

Diamond sizes range from 0.25 [1/4] carat up to 2.00 carat. Diamond colours : Mainly Canary yellow and free-range shades of Blue, White (+blue hue) and PINK. Diamond cuts : We strongly recommend round 'Brilliant' cut - 58 facets. Canary diamonds use 100gms of ashes per carat. The minimum order value for canary is 1x .5crt; or 2x .33crt; or 3x .25crt - this is because the processing is almost the same for any weight of diamond. Costs : Brilliant Canary 1.00crt = £6500 [i.e. 0.75crt = £487]
Orders could consist of various sizes, we have made up to 10 at once. Blue's use a more technical process using 200 gms of ashes or 25 grams of hair/crt. Smallest Blue is 0.33carat (=£3625**) largest is 1.25 crt (possibly 1.50 crt). The calculating price for Blue's is £10,950** per carat. The Canary process takes around 13-15 weeks, Blue's can take much longer. See our published price lists
Terms and conditions apply, detailed in plain English on our order form.

Value versus Prices

“It is unwise to pay too much, but it is worse to pay too little.

When you pay too much, you lose a little money...that is all.

When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing it was supposed to do.

The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot.....it cannot be done.

If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is well to add something for the risk you run, and if you do that, you will have enough to pay for something better”

John Ruskin – Philosopher 1819-1900
