Receiving Ashes/ hair/ personal item
Once we have received the ashes/ hair/ personal item, they will be marked and checked.
Carbon is extracted from the ashes/ hair/ personal item by chemical and physical processes.
The carbon is then transformed into graphite, where it will be used as the starting base for the diamond transformation.
Synthesis - Cut and Polish
A specially developed machine housing HPHT technology produces the diamond.
The period of growth depends on the diamond size required.
It is then cut and polished to its desired state.
Quality Control and Certification
Strict quality control is carried out to ensure the diamond's genuineness, weight, cut, and colour. Algordanza issues certificates ensuring the diamond’s origin from the remitted ashes/ hair/ personal item.
