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. It is carried out manually and with the utmost of respect by LONITÉ’s specialists, taking an average of 5000 minutes per order.

The LONITÉ carbon purification is 25 times costlier 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 them 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 factor, hence the greater the cost. For cremation diamond sizes larger than 0.5 carats, costs are appreciably higher for this reason alone.

A diamond seed is required for carbon atoms of ashes/hair to attach to and crystallise. 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 Vapour Deposition) diamonds, which are much cheaper - for a reason.

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.

With LONITÉ there are no middlemen, so you pay only for quality, instead of 35%-45% distribution mark-ups.

LONITÉ’s transparent cremation diamond prices are clearly visible. With LONITÉ there is no “Price on application” in ashes to diamonds cost.

Cremation Jewellery Price

In addition to the cremation diamonds cost, the price of jewellery depends on the shape, metal type and metal weight. Jewellery prices include all mounting and shipment costs.

Colours vs. Cost

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

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

The growing time for 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 17200 / 1.0ct).

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. 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.
