Something you will need to consider when planning a funeral for a loved one is the kind of burial that they may like to have, if they haven’t already expressed a preference in a will or to a family member.
There are lots of options these days but one of the most popular choices is to have a loved one cremated – and if this is something that your relative or friend has chosen, you will also need to think about what to do with the ashes.
People often choose to scatter these in a place that the deceased was fond of, or you can keep the ashes in an urn as many others do. But another option to consider is whether or not you want to have a memorial diamond made out of the cremated remains.
There are numerous companies that provide this as a service, so it’s simply a matter of picking the one you like and sending the cremated remains off to them. You can also make these diamonds out of hair, so if you’d rather keep the urn and its contents you can.
You can also choose to mix your own hair or those of other family members in with the ashes if you like – and you can then use the memorial diamond in a wedding or engagement ring, so they then become celebration diamonds as well.
Even though these diamonds are created in a lab, they’re still considered real diamonds since the process is the same as the conditions found inside the earth’s mantle – and the carbon structure is the same as diamonds you’d find in a mine.
