Horses into diamonds
Diamonds are made of carbon and both your horses ashes and their hair or mane are also rich in carbon and can be made into exquisite diamonds that can be incorporated into a completely discreet item of memorial jewellery such as a ring, earrings or broach.
There is a range of different colours (Canary Yellow, Blue, Mostly White, Almost White and Pink) and sizes (from 0.25 crt up to 2.00 crt, with 0.75 & 1.00 crt the most popular) and carats all with a slightly different cost and sometimes process. They are then cut, a ‘Brilliant’ cut of 58 facets is used.
Canary diamonds require 100 grams of ashes or 10-15 grams of hair and the process takes around 13-15 weeks, Blue’s use a different technical process and can take a lot longer, they require 200 grams of ashes or 25 grams of hair per carat. Prices start at around £3,500 for a 0.5 crt canary diamond.
Karen Martin, the founder of My Pets Ashes, is a firm believer of celebrating the life of your pet, is a very important part of loving your pet.
“We help horse owners to find a way to remember their beloved horse, or any other pet in a way that feels right for them. Losing a pet can be as painful as losing any family member and it is important to recognise that and make sure you give yourself time to grieve.”
