Losing your loved one is one of the most heartbreaking events a person can go through in their life. Especially if you were close to the deceased, you miss them all the time and wish that they were still together with you.

You can turn the ashes of your loved one into a memorial diamond, which you can put in a ring or a necklace, or simply keep it as it is. In this way, you'll always have a physical embodiment of the spirit of your loved one with yourself.

The Price Of Turning Ashes Into Diamonds.

The cost of memorial diamonds varies from company to company. Here are a few best-sellers:

  1. Eterneva

This is one of the most well-known ash diamond companies in the world. The price depends on the carat and color of the diamond. For example, a 3.00 carat colorless or blue diamond will cost you $50,000 whereas a 0.10 to 0.19 carat colorless or blue memorial diamond will cost you $2,999. They can also engrave the deceased person's name into the diamond.


LONITÉ is also an extremely reputable company, however, it's less pricey than Eterneva. The price of a memorial diamond at LONITÉ starts at USD 1,400 for a 0.25-carat diamond and goes up to $24,500 for a 2.00-carat diamond.

  1. EverDear

EverDear is a more affordable option without compromising on quality. It offers a 0.10-carat yellow diamond for $695 and goes up to $18,200 for its 2.00-carat colorless diamond.

  1. LifeGem

LifeGem is one of the oldest players in the memorial diamond business, starting in 2001. The company charges a standard $2,999 for a clue or colorless ash diamond between .10 and .19 carats, whereas the price jumps to $19,999 for a 0.9 to 0.99 carat.

  1. Heart-in-Diamond

This company offers you a lot of control over the settings for your diamond, hence, you can have a tailor-made product. However, you'll have to spend extra on basic services such as a Gemologist Institute of America (GIA) certification, which is offered by default, by other companies. The pricing is rather affordable, with colorless diamonds, in the range of 0.10 to 0.19 carat, costing $2,395.
