Cremation Solutions offers both cremation diamonds and cremation crystals that beautifully commemorate the life of a loved one in a spectacular jewel. Customers aren’t always certain which type of jewel to create, so it is important for us to clarify the differences between these two types of cremation jewels so that you can make the best decision. Investing in a cremation jewel can help you pay tribute to your loved one or pet and to help you feel connected to them in a meaningful way. Whether you select a cremation crystal or cremation diamond, we want to help you feel secure and understand the differences. The following information about our artisan-crafted memorial jewelry will help you decide what is right for you.
We don’t mind sharing with our customers that we sell far more crystals than we do diamonds. However, cremation diamonds are truly majestic; they simply require an extra-long creation process and consequently cost more. Our diamond creation jewelry is truly exquisite and we are proud to offer such dazzling works of art, but it’s important that customers note that the process to create our diamonds takes between 7 months to a year. Although we employ an advanced process to produce our lab diamonds, the time requirement is unavoidable.
Our cremation diamonds are 100% certified diamond gems that are created using the carbon from a lock of hair or ashes. Each created diamond is carefully inspected, authenticated, and graded by our world-class gemologists. Each diamond is measured in carats as are all diamonds on the market. In addition, Cremation Solutions offers a guarantee against any defects in the gem. Once the diamond is created it can be set within a memorial jewel of your choosing.
Cremation diamonds have all the beauty of any cherished family heirloom, but they go a step further as they have been created with the essence of someone dear.
Our Diamond Creation Process
To create a diamond, we place a small amount of a loved one’s ashes in a crucible that is able to withstand the intense heat of the creation process. A temperature that surpasses 5,000 degrees Fahrenheit is required in order for the elements contained in the crucible. As the heating process continues, the carbon turns into graphite. This part of the process generally takes several weeks.
Our technicians then take this graphite and place it within a core containing a metal catalyst and a genuine diamond crystal seed. This core is then placed in an innovative diamond press where it is heated once again. It takes approximately 800,000 of applied pressure (per square inch) to transform this heated core into a rough crystal. Again, several more weeks are required for this part of the transformation.
The final step is where our highly skilled jewelers work with the rough diamond using faceting tools to cut and create a gemstone that meets your specifications. The end result is always impressive, but owing to the nature of work and processing involved, we must charge accordingly; although, we want to assure our customers that we charge fairly. Our goal is to create a captivating memorial that will last you a lifetime, an heirloom that can be passed on and celebrated from one generation to the next. Will a cremation diamond last forever? Let us say this: as a genuine diamond created in our state-of-the-art lab, it will certainly last as long as any other diamonds!
If you don’t mind the cost or time involved for the creation process, we invite you to peruse our gallery of cremation diamond jewels. We also want to let customers know that our diamond color selection is slightly more limited than options for crystals. Feel free to get in touch with us to address any questions you might have about the creation process or the completed jewel.
We design cremation crystal jewels to as one-of-a-kind keepsakes and memorials to loved ones and beloved pets who have passed. We use a very small amount of cremated ash to create our crystals. Using innovative gem-creation technology, we transform ash into genuine crystal. Our process is patented and our technologists, jewelry designers, and gemologists boast world-class skills that are evident in each newly created crystal and keepsake jewel.
Cremation Crystals: It’s All about Choice
The beauty of a custom-created jewel is the design choice that our customers enjoy. Customers have lots of options to consider as they commission their memorial crystal jewelry. We offer a wide array of sizes and cuts as well as a rainbow of colors. Customers can also select 14K white gold, 14 K gold, or sterling silver to be featured in their cremation jewel. Our crystals can be set in our rings, pendants, and necklaces. The idea is for you to be able to design a personalized jewel that suits your preferences or that possibly reflects your loved one.
The Cremation Crystal Process
To create your commemorative crystal jewel, we require about two tablespoons of cremation ashes. We will send you a kit after you place your order that contains a small vessel for you to fill with the ashes. If any ash is unused, we will send it back to you along with your jewel. We want to assure our customers that we have a rigid process in place to ensure that ashes are never mixed. Every customer’s order and ashes are kept completely separate. This process is integral to the integrity of our jewel-making process. We always respect that the ashes in our care are the earthly remains of your loved one. We never take our role as caretakers of this essence lightly. Our tracking strict tracking system is one of the highlights of our jewel-making process.
Unlike cremation diamonds that can take a year to create, our cremation crystals can be created in 8 and 10 weeks. Our crystals are measured in millimeters as opposed to carats. They come in both dark and light colors, but we want to point out that light colors, by their nature, produce greater sparkle and reflection. Some of the colors that we feature include red, pink, bronze, royal blue, and green. We feature a helpful chart that demonstrates what gems our crystals will closely resemble based on our color offerings. Please click here to view the chart.
