When your loved one passes on, it’s natural to feel you’ll do anything to keep them with you. In today’s market there are so many ways to hold a loved one’s physical presence close. The most traditional, of course, is to place their ashes in a memorial urn and display it in a prominent area of your home. Increasingly, however, those who desire to commemorate a loved one are turning away from urns and toward memorial diamonds: brand-new precious stones created from the loved one’s ash. However, is this really the best way to remain connected to one we’ve loved and lost?
Memorial diamonds, also known as cremation diamonds, offer mourners the option of not just having their loved one’s remains, but wearing them everywhere. Instead of being interred or placed in an urn, the deceased’s ashes are sent in to a special facility, where the carbon from the ashes is compressed into a diamond using an accelerated version of the natural formation process. The diamond is then set in a pendant, ring, pin or other jeweled token that can be worn and passed down like other fine jewelry.
While creating a memorial diamond from cremated remains may sound like an ideal way to hold a loved one close for a lifetime, there are some serious and overlooked drawbacks. By contrast, the Memori Diamond was designed to address these concerns. Memori offers the best of the memorial diamond—tangible connection to a loved one’s physical form—without requiring a single piece of their remains. Instead, each nearly colorless, high-quality Memori Diamond contains a laser-engraved portrait of the loved one who has passed. Wearers can hold their loved one close every time they don the jewelry. They can also view the beautiful portrait as often as they like, or share it with others, by means of a special magnifier included with the purchase.
So what makes Memori a better, smarter investment than the more well-known memorial or cremation diamond? Here are a few factors to consider:
While cremation diamonds—also known as memorial diamonds—may seem like an excellent option for commemorating your loved one, they can offer unwanted religious challenges and expenses. And they simply cannot offer the joy and connection of gazing on your loved one’s face. Rather than cremating your loved one, consider honoring their remains with a burial ritual and celebrate your love for them instead through a beautiful Memori diamond.
