Remembering Love with a Memorial Keepsake

Updated on February 21, 2013

The Most Personal Memorial


Moving Past the Grief

The loss of a loved one is on the top five list of the most stressful events in our lives. Stress from grief can be intense, but it's also a necessary step in coping with the reality of loss.  However, prolonged stress, can damage your health, your relationships, and your quality of life.  Finding ways to cope with the death of a loved one is key to being able to continue on with your own life.

Memorializing an individual who has passed can be extremely helpful following loss.  Experts in psychology have found that to memorialize a deceased loved-one is usually a healthy part of the grieving process. 

The most famous of events and people are typically memorialized in large, elaborate ways.  Mount Rushmore, for example, memorializes four great presidents.  The Tomb of the Unknown soldier serves as a memorial to anyone who fell in service of the nation and acknowledges all of their sacrifices.  Individuals can create more personal memorials to honor the deceased in unique and private ways as well.

Memorial keepsakes, like cremation diamonds are becoming an increasingly popular way of remembering loved ones who have passed away, whether they were human or animal.  Whilst there are many forms of memorial keepsakes cremation diamonds are created in a laboratory using hair or cremated ashes.  The process to create these personal memorials replicates the same process that occurs over millions of years under the earth’s crust to create natural diamonds. The difference is the use of a personal carbon source instead of the carbon deposits that are found in the earth.

These unique cremation diamonds serve as a tangible reminder of someone special.  Some families combine remains from both of their parents, or several generations to create a unique family heirloom.  Creating these memorial diamond allows bereaved families to hold on to love in a unique and personal way.

      Depending on the size, and the color of the diamond, it can take about 90 days to create a cremation diamond. DNA2Diamonds has strict protocols that follow the cremains through the creation process to ensure the ashes are of your loved one. The colors will vary and there are several size options available. I like all sorts of cremation jewelry. If it were me, I'd get a diamond and probably a few other types of memorial jewelery - are pretty nice. This way I could change my jewelry and always have my loved one close.

      I'm very sorry to learn of your loss...its never easy losing someone special, is it?
