Components: Cremation Ashes to Diamonds Cost

The cost to turn ashes into diamonds is composed of purifying the ashes, creating the diamond, polishing and shipping.

Price Factor I - Cremation Ashes into Diamonds Cost
Carbon Purification

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

Carbon purification for a 4N purity (99.99%) is a sophisticated process that is necessary to produce flawless diamonds of may color. It is carried out manually and with the utmost of respect by LONITÉ’s specialists, taking an average of 5,000 minutes per diamond.

The LONITÉ carbon purification is 25 times more that 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, saving time and cost.

Price Factor II - Cremation Ashes into Diamonds Cost
Diamond Creation

The LONITÉ cremation diamond creation costs are dependent on growing time, which is measured in months, not hours. The larger the diamond, the longer the time in the synthesis environment and the greater the cost. The cost to turn ashes into diamonds larger than 0.5 carats is appreciably higher for this reason alone.

A diamond seed is required for carbon atoms derived from ashes/hair to attach to and crystallize. To achieve the ultimate beauty of your cremation diamond, LONITÉ only uses natural diamonds from the top 0.1% of the best available diamonds as ‘seeds’. We never use CVD (Chemical Vapor Deposition) diamonds, which are much cheaper - for a reason. While this would reduce the cost to turn ashes into diamonds, it does not reflect our philosophy of treating every cremation diamond as if we were making it for ourselves.

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

Most companies sell through regional distributors and other layered channels, each one adding their own profit margin. Where you enter the network impacts how much it costs to turn ashes into diamonds.

With LONITÉ there are no middlemen, so you pay only for quality, instead of 35%-45% in distribution mark-ups. The cost to turn ashes into diamonds should reflect the quality and size of the diamond, not the distribution network.

LONITÉ’s transparent cremation diamond prices are clearly visible. With LONITÉ there is no “Price on application” or changes in how much it costs to turn ashes into diamonds.

Colors vs. Cost

An array of cremation diamond colors is achieved in varied synthesis environments with different purification and preparation procedures.

Amber is the most natural color and undergoes a standard process offering the lowest price (from 1600 / 0.25ct). In comparison, colorless cremation diamonds require the highest standard of purification using the most advanced technology.

The growing time for a 1 carat Purely Colorless™ diamond can be several times that of a 1 carat Naturally Amber™ memorial diamond. Therefore, Purely Colorless™ cremation diamonds are the most expensive (up to 17200 / 1.0ct).

Greenish Yellow

The greenish yellow memorial diamond needs 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 to process and has a relatively higher price.

Red memorial diamonds develop its beautiful color through further processing of amber diamonds. By applying the light of high-energy electrons with an electronic emitter, nitrogen-vacancy color centres will form inside the diamond giving the diamond its red color.

Le Ciel

Blue

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