How much do ashes and hair weigh?

23rd September 2008

We’ve been asked many times ‘How much ashes weigh?’ for sending and converting into a diamond.
Half an everyday cup would weigh approx’ 100 grams.
A heaped tablespoon of ashes weighs around the 35 grams mark.
Half a cupful of hair in a firm ball weighs around 25 grams and is usually sufficient to make a 1 carat canary coloured diamond.


Memorial Diamonds have been supplying man-made diamonds since 1985, principally using the carbon in cremation ashes or carbon extracted from hair.
