“Life is without meaning. You bring the meaning to it. The meaning of life is whatever you ascribe it to be. Being alive is the meaning”. Joseph Campbell

Diamond Urn


Diamonds formed billions of years ago are extremely rare as few are able to survive the difficult journey from the pits of the earth to reach the earth's surface. The quality and value of diamonds are judged on carat weight, colour, clarity, cut and confidence in a diamonds grading certificate.

Humans inhabiting the planet for some 1.4 million years are infants in comparison yet share many symbolic parallels, the journey to conception analogous to that of a diamond. Just like a diamond requires a unique hand to hone and reveal it beauty and qualities so to mother represents earth and the inner world journey of new life from conception to birth the beginning of life a diamond honed through childhood and just as that of a diamond's can be imagined as a parallel, in parity, carat weight, our contribution to humanity, colour, reflective of personality, clarity, assured of who we are, cut, nurture and nature leading to confidence, our beliefs with feeling that is our reality, enabling a unique human lifetime.

Diamonds portray strength, is a symbol of visual love, unique in appearance and are relatively rare just as is every member of the human family. Our diamond made in Walnut is a geometric dodecahedral. Our 12-sided is designed to convey the many faces and changes in direction of the many fruitful lives lived within the one.

Just like the diamond cutter and mother, it requires of the craftsman absolute concentration, precision and accuracy of the highest order to achieve its perfect proportion and finish.
