Diamond Transformation Process

Diamond Transformation Process

Witness your loved one’s memory become a beautiful and lasting memento.

To create something as truly precious and heartfelt as your memorial diamond, we culminate perfection in our work by carrying out only the best and most reliable processes.

The Flow of Life Into the Diamond

All staff involved in the process holds high reverence to every order and ensures each step is carried out accurately.

All Algordanza Memorial Diamonds are produced, engraved, and controlled in Switzerland. Our production facilities in Switzerland may also be visited.

Receiving Ashes/ hair/ personal item

Once we have received the ashes/ hair/ personal item, they will be marked and checked.

Carbon Preparation

Carbon is extracted from the ashes/ hair/ personal item by chemical and physical processes.

Graphite Preparation

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.
