Components of Cremation Ashes into Diamonds Cost

Decisive Factors of Cremation Ashes into Diamonds Cost

The process to turn cremation ashes into diamonds consists of purifying the ashes, generating, cutting and polishing the rough diamonds and shipping the diamonds to customers. Thus, the cremation ashes to diamonds cost is largely determined by the whole creation process.

Price Factor I - Cremation Ashes into Diamonds Cost
Carbon Purification

The cost of carbon purification is fixed regardless of the cremation diamond’s size you selected.

Carbon purification to a 4N purity (99.99% purity) is a sophisticated process. Thus, this process is carried out manually by LONITÉ’s specialists with their utmost respect, which usually takes an average of 5000 minutes per order.

Therefore, the LONITÉ carbon purification cost is 25 times higher compared with the cost of other ‘memorial diamonds’ treated with a mixture of pre-purified industrial graphite. Graphite (generic carbon) is added in their process to dilute impurities, and thus save their time and cost.

Price Factor II - Cremation Ashes into Diamonds Cost
Cremation Diamonds Creation

The creation cost of LONITÉ cremation diamond is largely decided by the growth time, which is measured in months. The larger the diamond is, the longer time it takes to grow, hence the higher cost it would be. For cremation diamond sizes larger than 0.5 carat, the related growth time is longer which results to the appreciably higher cost.

A diamond seed is required for carbon atoms derived from cremation ashes/hair to attach to and crystallize. In order to obtain the ultimate beauty of the cremation diamond, LONITÉ only uses natural diamonds from the top 0.1% of the best available diamonds as ‘seeds’. Unlike other companies, we never use CVD (Chemical Vapour Deposition) diamonds, though are much cheaper, for the ultimate beauty reason.

Price Factor III - Cremation Ashes into Diamonds Cost
No Local Mark-up

Unlike most of the companies who sell their cremation diamonds through regional distributors or hierarchical agents, each of them adding their own profit margin into the retail cost, LONITÉ has no middlemen to mark-up the cost.

Therefore, the cremation diamonds cost you paid is for diamond natural features, such as purity, quality, color and size you selected and ashes to diamond creation cost only, instead of 35%-45% regional distributors’ mark-ups.

The transparency of LONITÉ cremation diamond prices is our promise to customers. For LONITÉ, no “Price on application” is added into ashes to diamonds cost in UK.

Colours & Cost to Turn ashes into Cremation Diamonds

Colours Options

An array of cremation diamond colours is achieved in varied synthesis environments with different purification and preparation procedures. For LONITÉ cremation diamonds, we have five resident colours: Naturally Amber™, Greenish Yellow, Red, Blue and Purely Colourless™.

Amber is the most natural colour and is achieved from a standard process, offering the lowest price (from £ 1400 / 0.25ct). In comparison, colourless cremation diamonds require the highest standard of purification by using the most advanced technology and thus offer the highest price (from £ 2200 / 0.25ct).

As to the growth time, a 1 carat Purely Colourless™ diamond can be several times that of a 1 carat Naturally Amber™ cremation diamond. Therefore, Purely Colourless™ cremation diamonds are the most expensive (up to £ 15600 / 1.0ct).

L’Angelo

Purely Colourless™

The colourless memorial diamond has the highest purity (4N purity - 99.99%) of carbon, free from any other elements or impurities. Moreover, the production procedure is very technical in order to create a purely colourless diamond. Thus, the cost is the highest (up to £ 15,600) and the growth period is the longest (up to 9 months) among all memorial diamonds.

La Terre

Naturally Amber™

Amber is the most basic color option for all LONITÉ memorial diamonds. The amber diamonds are grown under basic creation procedure without adding microelements or special technical treatments. The comparative lowest production time and cost makes the amber memorial diamonds the most popular option. Technically speaking, the amber color is naturally given by nitrogen (N) remaining in the carbon which is essential in human cremation ashes. Therefore, if you wish the color of your beloved diamond remain natural, the amber color is your best choice.

Le Nature

Greenish Yellow

The greenish yellow memorial diamonds need an additional HPHT treatment cycle to modify the crystal-structure and color-centres of the diamond. As a result, the greenish yellow color takes longer time to process and has a relatively higher price.

Le Souvenir

Red

Red memorial diamonds develop their beautiful color through further processing of the amber diamonds. By applying the light of high-energy electrons with an electronic emitter, nitrogen-vacancy color centers will be formed inside of the diamond, which gives the diamond its red color.

Le Ciel

Blue

The blue memorial diamonds look regal and peaceful. LONITÉ has advanced technology to determine the atom density inside of the memorial diamonds. Therefore, the color of LONITÉ blue diamonds is very stable. In addition, with boron (B) atoms inside the carbon, the crystal growth is faster and easier, which makes the growth speed quicker and the cost lower comparing with colorless memorial diamonds.

Cost to Turn Hair and Ashes into Cremation Diamonds



SPECIAL NOTES:

1. For memorial diamond sizes above 1.0 carat, please contact us directly for a personal quote.

2. Memorial diamonds below 0.25 carat still have to undergo the purification process, which is time-consuming and costly. Currently, we are not offering single diamonds below 0.25 carat. However, if you need a 0.10 carat diamond in addition to a 0.25 carat diamond, for example, please contact us directly for a personal quote.

3. A 4.5% discount is offered for the second and any additional memorial diamonds ordered, where the discounted diamonds are no more expensive than the first one. Family Bundles are not applicable.

4. Rough diamonds (unpolished) are available for size 0.35 carat or above with a 25% discount. However, the rough diamond should NOT be cut at any time after it is delivered because inexperienced diamond cutters without specialised cutting skills are highly likely to break the diamond.

5. Brilliance of the cut options: Brilliant > Princess > Radiant > Asscher > Emerald > Heart. Specifying a cutting shape other than brilliant is subject to an additional fee of 12.5%.

6. The images displayed on the website are for reference only. The actual size and colour depth of your memorial diamond may vary.
