Death imposes a grim reality on those left behind. Shock. Confusion. Sadness. Anger. Exhaustion. Emotions dealt with while grieving the loss of a sibling, parent, child, spouse, relative, friend, or even pet - can be intense and often overwhelming. Bereavement is experienced following the death of a loved one, and literally means "to be deprived by death."
Heart In Diamond is a startup company that is revolutionizing the way family members deal with bereavement, commemorating the loss of a loved one by transforming hair or ashes into diamonds. The results? Stunning. Gorgeous diamonds available in a variety of cuts and colors that can be mounted on one of their brilliant settings or just the diamond itself delivered.
Finding Comfort Amidst the Sting of Death
Whether death comes unexpectedly in the night or was a slowly encroaching nightmare endured by the individual and family for years, nothing in this world can quite prepare someone for the sting imposed by the loss of a loved one.
Heart In Diamond’s unique services provide a powerful way to create a lasting bond between the deceased and the living.
The American Psychological Association (APA) suggests choosing ways that allow you to remember and celebrate the life of a loved one in order to honor them, and move through the feelings of grief and loss. They state, “What you choose is up to you, as long as it allows you to honor that unique relationship in a way that feels right to you.”
Turning the ashes or hair of a loved one into a diamond is a unique way to celebrate their life and honor their memory forever. Indeed, on the Heart In Diamond website, you will discover dozens of heartfelt testimonials that describe how having the diamond created helped people during their bereavement, such as this one from Korey in the United States:
“I wanted my son in the absolute best hands, with a company who truly cared about what they were doing; Heart In Diamond fit my needs perfectly. From the moment I first made contact with them, I was made to feel special, loved, and valued. What should have been the most difficult part of my life was made so much easier by Heart In Diamond, and their dedication to their clients and the memorial of their loved ones.”
How Does Heart In Diamond Turn Ashes or Hair into Diamonds?
Those grieving can send in the hair and/or ashes of a loved one, family member, relative, or your dog and have these remains used to create stunning diamonds available in a variety of cuts, colors, and shapes. There is also the option to mix these remains with hair from those still living, combining their bodies together eternally. The cremated ashes and/or hair is then compressed and heated to extreme temperatures to extract the carbon, and to then turn them into high-quality diamonds.
In addition to the gorgeous, natural diamonds created by this startup-company, they also provide more than five hundred quality settings to choose from, resulting in a stunning piece of jewelry that houses the memory of the deceased and that can be worn and cherished.
It may come as a surprise to learn that the process of creating a beautiful diamond from a loved one’s ashes or hair can be done in five simple steps. If someone is interested in buying a diamond keepsake from Heart In Diamond, this is the process they follow:
- Those wishing to remember their loved one choose a diamond
- They pick a setting from more than 500 options
- Hair, ashes, or both are sent to the lab from their loved one, family member, pet, relative, or friend
- Heart In Diamond’s lab then turns the remains into a diamond
- Their personalized keepsake is sent to them so that they can honor the bond with their loved one forever
Diamonds and Settings as Unique as the Loved One Commemorated
Every single person or pet that has ever walked this earth is unique. It only makes sense that a diamond or piece of jewelry created to celebrate their memory should be personalized to capture their unique spirit once they’re gone.
For this reason, cremation diamonds are available in brilliant cut and princess cut, and come in a variety of colors, including:
- Deep Red
Cremation diamonds can be set in different pieces of jewelry including rings, pendants, and earrings. White or yellow gold in 14 or 18kt, or even platinum can be used for the setting, along with numerous selections for style, including:
- Shoulder set
- Classic solitaire
Customization options allow individuals to create a stunning piece of jewelry that celebrates the uniqueness of their loved one and quickly becomes a treasured family heirloom that can be passed down to future generations and treasured by those who wear it.
People that have gone through the ashes to diamond process rave about the customization options. One customer, Anne-Marie from the UK, shared her decision to have a ring made from the hair of her beloved dog, Daisy, who is still alive and well. She was thrilled to work with a designer at Heart In Diamond, who accommodated her request to have a unique ring setting made in the actual shape of a daisy. She remarks in her testimonial:
“Whilst our story isn’t yet sad as we still have Daisy, the fact that she has kept me company through some very dark, scary times I find some comfort that when the time does come I’ll still have part of her with me. I’ll be forever grateful that your company made this affordable for people like me, I am telling all my Dog walking friends how amazing this experience has been!”
Common praise about this startup company includes the fact that they go out of their way to customize the piece of jewelry specific to the customer’s requests. If one cannot find exactly what they want on the site, the representatives of the company will go the extra mile to send more examples or even have a unique piece made upon request.
Each natural lab diamond created needs to pass an extremely strict quality-control process to ensure brilliant results every time. Creating the diamonds using this process means that Heart In Diamond can identify any diamond that was created in their lab, and ensures that each one is unique. The company also offers an Authenticity Check to customers if they want to ensure it was created by Heart in Diamond, and is backed by the guarantee.
