The company name ‘Lonité’ originates from ‘Longévité’ in Swiss French, which translates to enjoy a long life. Memorial diamond is one aspect of this idea.
LONITÉ is the trademark under LONITE AG, Switzerland. LONITE AG’s research laboratory is a world leader specialising in the technology to turn ashes into close heart diamonds for you to keep long lasting memories of your love ones in Australia. LONITÉ’s story began in a small town near the Alps, 25 minutes' train ride south of Zürich, Switzerland.
The technology base of LONITE AG dates back to the early 1950s, when scientists created the first man-made diamonds using High-Pressure High-Temperature anvils.
The founders of LONITÉ are all leaders in their field of expertise required to turn cremation ashes into diamonds. For years our founders have been involved in the cremation jewellery trade, scientific research to update the process to make diamond out of ashes, the funeral business, as well as turning your loved one cremation ashes or hair in Australia into beautiful memorial diamonds.
At the very beginning only very small amber and blue memorial diamonds could be created. Today’s advancements in technology have changed all that, meaning cremation diamonds from LONITÉ come in larger sizes and more beautiful colours.LONITÉ can, on your request, design a jewelry setting around your unique cremation diamond which will help you to keep it close to you.
LONITÉ headquarters located 25 minutes from downtown Zürich, Switzerland.
“I am passionate to help people in need and is touched deeply by stories of their loved ones.”
“It feels like we're an important part for the overcoming of their sorrow. I lost some beloved family members as well and if I knew that memorial diamonds were possible, I would have ordered one. Maybe one day I will be a diamond as well.”
“Our clients put a great amount of trust in us for handling their loved ones’ remains. That is why our attention is multiplied in everything we do during the process.”
“I’ve lost my father and it makes me happy that I can be there to help someone that is grieving. I hope that makes them feel better to be able to create an amazing diamond of their loved ones to keep close to them always.”
LNT OT95000:2010 LONITÉ’s improved Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) were introduced for better control and higher-level monitoring. Our internal documentation and management systems used to keep track of each individual memorial diamond creation have been improved and refined for maximum reliability.
There are seven vital inspection points along the entire process to turn your loved one's cremation ashes in Australia into forever diamonds, with a total count of 25 checks performed by staff in various departments. Staff IDs and access dates are logged at every step. Hair/ashes are marked with a unique tracking ID and bar code upon arrival. All processes are traced. Photos are taken so that you can personally see the detail to which we work.
At the start of making diamonds out of cremation ashes or hair, hair or ashes are carefully and respectfully cleaned with medical-grade sterilisation alcohol. The weighted amount of catalyst and chemical purification agents are accurate to three decimal places, 0.001g, to ensure precision. The Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) finally result in the increased stability of a memorial diamond’s colour, purity and quality.
