We will also provide tips on how to choose the right jeweler and how to create a meaningful memorial for your loved one.1. The first step in turning ashes into diamonds is to find a qualified jeweler. There are a few things you should keep in mind when selecting a jeweler. First, you want to make sure the jeweler is certified by the Cremation Association of North America (CANA). This certification ensures that the jeweler has been trained in the proper handling of cremated remains.2. Second, you want to choose a jeweler who has experience creating memorial diamonds. Ask friends and family for recommendations or look for online reviews. Once you have selected a qualified jeweler, you will need to provide them with a small amount of your loved one’s ashes.3. Third, you will need to select the type of diamond you want. There are two main types of memorial diamonds: synthetic and natural. Synthetic diamonds are created in a laboratory and are not made from actual ashes. Natural diamonds are created using the carbon from your loved one’s ashes. The type of diamond you choose will depend on your budget and personal preference.4. Fourth, you will need to choose a setting for your diamond. The setting is the metal band or other support that holds the diamond in place. There are many different types of settings available, so take some time to browse options with your jeweler. Once you have selected a setting, your jeweler will create the diamond and set it in the chosen setting.5. Fifth, you will need to choose a place to display your diamond. You may want to keep it in a special jewelry box or display it in a shadow box frame. You may also want to wear it as a piece of jewelry. Whatever you decide, make sure the location is meaningful to you and that you will be able to see it often.6. Lastly, take some time to reflect on your loved one and the life you shared together. This reflection will help you appreciate your diamond memorial and keep your loved one’s memory alive.
