LifeGem diamonds are created by placing carbon, the primary element of all diamonds, in conditions that recreate the forces of nature. The patented LifeGem®process uses an exact carbon source to create beautiful and meaningful diamonds for you and your family.
Step One - Carbon Capture After extensive research and development, we have discovered how to extract the carbon from a lock of hair or existing cremated remains. This process begins with either an amount of hair collected during a routine hair cut, a small portion of the remains from any standard cremation, or both. Feel free to add a lock of your own hair as well to create a unity LifeGem heirloom diamond.
Step Two - Purification Once captured, this carbon is heated to extremely high temperatures under special conditions. This process converts your loved one’s carbon to graphite with unique characteristics and elements that will create your one-of-a-kind LifeGem diamond. Your LifeGem will be like no other in this world.
Step Three - Diamond Creation To create your LifeGem, we now place this graphite in one of our unique diamond presses, which replicate the awesome forces deep within the earth — heat and pressure. The more time in the press, the larger the rough diamond crystal that results.
Step Four - Diamond Certification Finally, our skilled diamond cutters facet your LifeGem diamond(s) according to your wishes, laser etch your unique identifier on the girdle, and certify it for authenticity. All LifeGem diamonds are individually inspected, graded, and identified by world renowned gemologists trained by the Gemological Institute of America (GIA). The world’s finest jewelers use this same certification process. A diamond that takes millions of years to occur naturally can now be created from the carbon of your loved one in about twenty-four weeks.
