As custom jewelers, we get to be a part of celebrating the big moments in our lives; Often times, this may be an engagement, graduation, anniversary, and many other major milestones. When working with custom jewelry pieces, one of the most incredible parts of doing so is being able to create or repair something that has a unique meaning and significance to an individual. Sometimes this is done by restoring antique jewelry pieces that have been passed down from generation to generation, and other times it's starting from scratch to create something special.

We love all of the unique designs that we get to be a part of; One, in particular, that holds near and dear to our hearts, is the great honor of being able to create a memorial diamond ring. We recently worked with a client who lost her mother and wanted to celebrate her life with a piece that would reflect the woman she was. She chose to have a memorial diamond created from her mother’s ashes, which we were then able to set into an open ring band.

The Process

Having a memorial diamond created from the ashes of your loved one that has passed on is a unique way to remember and celebrate their life, and help you feel connected to them every day. The process synthesizes the environment of diamond creation with controlled heat and pressure. Just like any custom piece of jewelry, the diamond will take on characteristics of its own; However, the color is always blue, due to the boron our bodies leave behind. We’ve worked with several trusted companies that specialize in this process and would be happy to guide you in the right direction. Once your diamond is created, Bostonian Jewelers can set it into a unique ring, necklace, or any custom jewelry piece you desire. This treasured piece of jewelry is one that you will help to bring you a sense of comfort and peace, feeling closer to your loved one.

Custom Memorial Diamond Ring

While some stories that come along almost feel too personal to share, it’s ones like this that remind us to embrace life's moments that, as jewelers, we experience with our clients. We took this blue emerald cut memorial diamond that our client had made, balanced with special marquis shape stones to create a unique custom open ring band. This is a unique and personal way to celebrate and remember the life of a loved one, and we feel fortunate to be able to be part of the process.
