Life Gem is a unique way of keeping your loved one near, by having a small amount of their ashes made into a diamond then mounted into a piece of jewellery you can wear every day.
Life Gem offers an exclusive, unique and very personal memorial that never has to leave your side. No one has to know what it is unless you decide to tell them.
You will be together forever, you only have to see it sparkle in the sunlight and you will remember a moment in time, a beautiful memory, a romantic gesture, a private thought, a joke, a kiss, an embrace, gesture the two of you shared together.
In summary, here is how your Life Gem diamond is created.
The process begins with a small portion of the remains from any standard cremation. This is called carbon capture.
Once captured, this carbon is then heated to extremely high temperatures under special conditions. While removing the existing ash, this process converts your loved one’s carbon to graphite with unique characteristics and elements that will create your one-of-a-kind Life Gem diamond, like no other in this world.
To create your Life Gem, the graphite is then placed in a unique diamond press, which replicate the awesome forces deep within earth-heat and pressure. The more time in the press, the larger the rough diamond crystal will be.
Finally, the skilled diamond cutters facet your Life Gem diamond according to your wishes, laser etch your unique identifier on the girdle, and certify it for authenticity. All Life Gem diamonds are individually inspected, graded, and identified by world-renowned gemologists trained by the Gemological Institute Of America (GIA). The worlds finest jewellers use this same certification process.
