Everyone who wants to order a memorial diamond, has unique opportunity to do that via Kickstarter, benefiting from up to 35% discount and not having to wait in a queue.

This is not an advertising ploy, the creation of diamonds from human hair is a commercial practice that has become quite popular!

The company from Spanish Seville - IrisGem - accepts hair from customers, turning them into diamonds cut by Antwerp specialists. This costly service has already seduced a significant number of customers, said the French weekly Courrier International.

To advertise its services, a little-known Spanish company uses the name of the football player “of all time” Brazilian Edson Arantes do Nascimento, better known as Pele.

He personally sent a strand of his graying hair to the Seville chemists, asking him to create a diamond from her for his beloved mother.

IrisGem specialists place customers' hair in high-temperature furnaces to extract carbon from keratin, which is 90% human curls.

The carbon obtained in this way is then loaded into a special machine for growing diamond, the temperature inside the chamber of which reaches 1500 degrees Celsius, and the pressure is 45 thousand times higher than atmospheric.

After several weeks, the carbon crystallizes.

Then synthetic diamonds of amber, yellow, green, blue or white color are sent to the diamond capital of the world - Antwerp, where they are given one form or another and cut in accordance with the wishes of customers. This process takes three to four months.

"To create an unpolished diamond, strands of hair weighing about one gram are enough to make about 400 milligrams of carbon," says IrisGem CEO Jordi Raventos. He claims that his company has almost unlimited creative possibilities, but does not disclose the cost of creating a synthetic diamond.

Until now, IrisGem has specialized in the so-called “diamonds of memory” created from the hair of the deceased. This service is popular mainly in Brazil, from where quite extravagant requests come from: to make a diamond from the hair of dogs, cats and even monkeys.

Today IrisGem plans to expand its business in Europe.

"Some Spanish football teams, such as Sevilla and Real, have expressed interest in creating diamonds from the hair of their players," they say in a company that offers the service of making a family diamond, for example, from the hair of children and grandchildren.

In 2009, Quebec-based Diamants Augenstern Canada created from hair Victoria Lopyreva, Miss Russia 2005, a yellow diamond weighing 0.45 carats and cost $ 8,600.

But the cost of IrisGem services can be found only by contacting the company personally: the prices on its website are not indicated.
