Decide how much you can afford to spend. Having a single diamond created from cremation ashes can be expensive, depending on the size, quality and colour of your diamond. A small and simple diamond costs as little as £1,950, while a more impressive specimen can cost as much as £13,000.
Contact a certified organisation who will convert the carbon from your loved one's cremation ashes into a diamond. Life Gem and Cremation Solutions are just two of the organisations who now handle this procedure. You may be able to contact an organisation like this through your funeral director, but you can also simply search online.
Decide on the gem that you want produced. Consider how large your diamond should be, and also consider the colour. Your diamond may be colourless, or you may choose various shades of blue and yellow. This will affect the diamond's price, so keep your budget in mind.
Decide on the diamond's setting. Diamonds of this nature are often set into rings or pendants. You can even have two diamonds created and set into a pair of earrings. Diamonds are meant to be worn, so put some thought into how you would like to display yours.
Choose an inscription. The jewellery that you choose can be inscribed with your loved one's name or the dates of their birth and death. You may also choose to inscribe a quote that was important to them.
Ship the cremation ashes. Depending on which service you choose, there will be different procedures for shipping. You may receive a kit in the mail that allows you to prepare the ashes yourself, or you may simply work with the funeral director who is preparing your loved one's remains to do so.
