About β ί ο ς

Diamond Origin

The company name ‘ β ί ο ς ’ originates from ‘ β ί ο ς ’ in Greek, which translates to ‘life’.
The technology dates to the early 1950s, when scientists created the first lab-grown diamonds also called today cremation diamonds, using High-Pressure High-Temperature anvils.


The technological beginnings of BIOS AG date back to the early 1950s, when scientists learned you can turn ashes into diamonds using High-Pressure High-Temperature anvils.

The founders of BIOS are all leaders in the diverse fields of expertise required to turn cremation ashes into diamonds . They have years of experience in the jewellery trade, the funeral business, conducting scientific research, and creating beautiful diamonds. Together they have the blend of skills required in making cremation diamonds out of ashes.

At first only very small amber and blue diamonds could be created. Today, advancements in the technology of making diamonds out of ashes have changed all that. Now, cremation diamonds from ashes are available through BIOS in larger sizes and more beautiful colour. Your memorial diamond can reflect the loved one’s personality and charm so that becoming a diamond after death continues their presence in your life. BIOS can, on your request, design a jewelry ring around your unique cremation diamond which will help you to keep it close to you.
