Memorial Diamonds are made in natural rare colours

3 Natural Coloured Memorial Diamonds

Phoenix Memorial Diamonds are real diamonds

Our 'Memorial Diamonds' are actually real diamonds but made from the carbon within cremation ashes (Cremains) and also hair (if the deceased loved-one is being buried).

Natural diamonds (mined) have grown deep in the earth, compressed by huge pressures and heated to fantastic temperatures - over millions of years.  They are 'cherry picked' for COLOUR, clarity and quality - the most expensive are the 'fancy' coloured diamonds which sell for many millions.

We grow our diamonds like they grow in the earth - under immense pressure, heated to fantastic heat, but instead of years your process takes a few months. They are still REAL diamonds with ALL the exact same characturistics as natural mined diamonds, but the colours we make are within the very valuable 'fancy' range - not £Millions but certainly a few thousand.  

Canary Yellow is the normal outcome from the interference of nitrogen. They are very consistent in a light shade of yellow (a colour very sought after in the 'States).  

We also grow Blue/White diamonds which we term 'Free-Range' - basically what goes in comes out. The Blue hue stems from Boron and we aim for the lightest shade we can make from the source of the carbon extracted (from ashes or hair). The processing is slightly different but still HPHT (High Pressure High Temperature)

We cut our diamonds like 95% of the worlds diamonds are - with 58 facets in a round 'Brilliant' cut.

It is as complex to make 1/10th of a carat as it is to make 2 carat, we therefore have a minimum order as a compromise on costs and profit for value to you.  We also have a cut tolerance of 5 points (100 in 1.00 carat).  We never recommend any diamond less than 0.25, they are simply too small. 

Some of our famous 'firsts' include "The Jessica Diamond" (made from an umbilical cord of an 'at risk' baby). 'The London Riots Diamond" (from the detritus in the streets after the riots). "The Honey Bee Diamonds" (made from thousands of bees which died after colony collapse disorder. The profits when sold will be donated to a worthy cause to research of why bees are dying).
