Despite being a painful subject, death can also be addressed by an interesting aspect, especially when technology and the market come into play.
If a portion of the population can enjoy a life of comfort and luxury, jewelry experts have found an opportunity to eternalize the memory of loved ones in a very sophisticated way. The luxury market has reached the funeral segment through the refinement of the funeral ceremony, the sumptuousness of the exclusive wreath of flowers and also by treating the body of a deceased.
Spending tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars, cremation ashes can be eternalized in the form of diamonds: the most durable, durable and most precious stone known to man.
The technology behind the tribute
The high costs of producing memorial jewelry, as the ash diamond is known, is tied to the high technology, ultra-skilled workmanship and time required for artificial gemstone production. Thanks to advances in mineralogy research, the same carbon contained in cremation ashes can be transformed into the raw material of synthetic diamonds.
In the laboratory, the ashes will undergo a long process of HPHT (high-pressure, high-temperature) in which the organic material is subjected to the high pressures and temperatures that recreate the natural conditions for stone formation. But instead of taking millions of years as it occurs in nature, the process only takes a few months to conceive the crystal.
To get an idea, scientists believe that the first diamonds were formed on the planet about 2.5 billion years ago. The stones are composed of pure compressed carbon and heated in the terrestrial mantle, 160 km deep of the terrestrial surface, with temperatures reaching 1050ºC.
The diamond owner can choose specific colors generated during the process as well as different cut shapes, making the gem even more significant. Remember that the synthesized diamond maintains the same physicochemical characteristics and the brilliance of a natural stone.
Most synthetic diamond creation labs offer a certificate of authenticity for the jewelry and can also enter a microscopic serial number on the diamond for identification and checking.
Diamonds are eternal
No wonder many people have turned the ashes of a loved one or a pet as a way of preserving the memory of those who left in one. jewel of infinite brightness. The ashes turned to diamonds symbolize infinite love through the beauty of the timeless significance of these gems.
Once ready, memorial diamonds can be kept or made up of rings, necklaces and brooches that can be worn or passed on from generation to generation among family members.
