You might have come across the term ash diamonds, burial diamonds or even what's more commonly known as pet memorial diamonds, and might be scratching your head and wondering, “what exactly is a pet memorial diamond?”
Pet Memorial diamonds are a branch of “synthetic diamonds”, “cultured diamonds” or even “laboratory-grown diamonds”. However the key difference with these man made diamonds are that Semper Fides Memorial Diamonds are formed using only the carbon extracted from the cremated ashes of a pet, its fur or even plumage. The extracted carbon is then put through an extensive and complicated process involving purification and HPHT (High Pressure High Temperature) machines that converts the carbon (from graphite form) to diamond ( Click here to read more ). A very common inquiry that people have is, “Are Pet Memorial Diamonds real diamonds?”. The simple answer is yes. Pet Memorial diamonds have the same chemical composition along with the same visual and physical properties as a natural diamond.

Putting the Memorial in Pet Memorial Diamond
Any Laboratory with the right tools and equipment has the ability to turn carbon into diamonds. However, not any lab can make pet memorial diamonds. A pet memorial diamond is a beautiful way to immortalise and remember a lost companion. What differentiates a pet memorial diamond from any other diamond is as simple as its name. The ‘Memorial’ aspect of pet memorial diamonds is the most important. A diamond broken down is nothing but a shiny rock with its carbon atoms arranged in a specific structure forming a diamond lattice. A pet memorial diamond on the other hand, is much more than that. The value of a pet memorial diamond is that the memorial diamond is your pet. Pet memorial diamonds are also made up of the priceless memories associated with your most loyal companion who can now remain close to you at all times.
