You would only leave your loved one’s remains with the most trusted cremation diamond company. Looking at pictures and videos online are definitely not sufficient to guarantee authenticity. Before you make this important decision you can arrange a visit to our Swiss lab via our SA office to understand the process of how we grow diamonds from ashes or hair as well as meet the ALGORDANZA lab and production teams in person.

If you have decided on the quality and reputation of ALGORDANZA, you are also welcome to deliver your loved one’s ashes or hair personally to our headquarters in Domat/Ems, Switzerland and/or receive the finished cremation diamond upon completion.

Notarial and gemological certification

ALGORDANZA has had their process of turning ashes to diamonds, notarized. A notary was commissioned to accompany the diamond transformation process from the beginning where the ashes were received, to the end where a diamond was grown.

ALGORDANZA cremation diamonds have also been confirmed by qualified gemologist’s (gemstone experts) to be genuine diamonds. This gives you the notarial proof that you are working with a reputable and certified company.
