Bio-Diamond's is the United Kingdom's leading manufacturer of genetic jewelry. They create laboratory diamonds made with carbon that's extracted from human hair or cremated ashes for a truly personal fine jewelry experience.
It may sound like something from science fiction, but the company is actually extracting carbon from clients' hair and ash samples. It's then combined with generic carbon and a diamond seed before being subjected to high temperatures and high pressures. A rough diamond is formed, which is then shaped, cut and polished by an in-house diamond cutter.
The company offers certified laboratory diamonds that come in colors like cognac, yellow-green, black, blue, red and clear. Customers can choose to purchase a solitary gem or have it set in a design from the company's exclusive collection. People are buying these diamonds to commemorate important events like births, deaths and marriages.
If you think the idea of wearing a piece of diamond jewelry that has a loved one's biological elements included in it is a little creepy, you may feel more comfortable with a piece of vintage jewelry, like a cocktail ring or a pair of estate earrings, which are a bit more natural!
