Due to the increasing lack of cemetery space and the sky rocketing rise in prices of traditional burial grounds, most Americans are opting for cheaper and uniquely customized alternatives to traditional burial as a means to celebrate the lives of their departed loved ones. Ashes to diamonds is one of the available substitutes to a traditional American burial that has surprisingly gained momentum over the years.
Why American families choose Cremation Diamonds to honor their departed ones
There is no greater feeling than to have your loved ones close to you at all times, even after they have departed. A Cremation diamond enables you to keep a physical connection or bond to your lost loved one and owing to their sizes that range from 3.8mm to 6.6mm, it is easy to carry it around on trips, family vacations or if there is generally a need to relocate.
The problem of the lack of spaces in cemeteries around the world has also become an issue in major American cities such as New-York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami or Philadelphia. Cemeteries are crowded and traditional cemetery burials are polluting groundwaters and release 10% more CO² on the long term because of tombs’ maintenance. Cremation also releases gas during the ceremony but once the ceremony is over, it stops there. Instead of sadly keeping the cremated ashes in urns, Americans are looking for innovative solutions to honor their departed ones. Cremation diamonds is one of them among ideas such as Memorial Tree, Alkaline Solution and even ashes into space.
Ashes to diamonds is a unique way to commemorate the kind of person your loved one was, the life they lived and the precious memories you hold of them. They also make a beautiful tribute and an everlasting legacy that can be passed on from generation to another within the family as a sign than your loved one still lives on.
The Difference between a Natural Diamond and a Cremation Diamond
According to a recent study in the journal Nature, natural diamonds are formed at elevated temperatures and pressure at depths of 140 to 190 km in the Earth’s mantle. Carbon-containing minerals provide the carbon source and the growth occurs over periods from 1 billion to 3.3 billion years. Cremation diamonds on the other hand are born in the laboratory by subjecting the ashes of your loved one to intense and heat and pressure.
Expert companies like LONITE with an existing branch in Buffalo, State of New York, USA convert the carbon extracted from the hair or ashes of your loved one to a cylinder shaped flaked graphite preparing it for the final stages that require intense heat and pressure. Ashes to diamonds takes several months depending on the size and color of the cremation diamond to be created.
Your cremation diamond can be delivered with both a certification of origin and a process analysis report documenting and proving scientifically that your memorial diamond originates from the ashes of your loved one. The production records, laboratory data, chemical analysis and physical factors can be re-verified and validated by any independent certification and quality control institute.
