LifeGems - a new type of family heirloom


We were recently given the privilege to work on a re-setting project with a client’s very special stone - a LifeGem. These are synthesised stones made from the carbon ashes of a deceased loved one.

According to LifeGem, the diamonds are made from exposure to pressures of 5.0–6.0 GPa and temperatures of 1,600–2,000 °C and the entire process takes 6-9 months. The result is a synthetic diamond (or diamonds) that act as a memorial to a loved one’s life.

The LifeGem commission that we worked on also included other diamonds from our client’s family members and past lovers - each telling their own story. A truly unique and special result!


The LifeGem is the blue-tinted stone in focus on the left. Did you know that in 2007 three LifeGems were created from strands of Ludwig van Beethoven’s hair?!
