Dying is definitely expensive nowadays with the average cost of burial and headstone between $7,000 and $10,000. This is probably the reason why the less costly alternative of cremation is getting popular among families. During the last decade, if you have a couple of thousand of dollars, you can have cremation jewellery as an option to the traditional urn.
Yes, for at least $2,000 you can have a memorial diamond that is made from carbon generated from the ashes of the deceased. The technique is more affordable and it provides greater attention to design so that the ashes of the loved one can be transformed into a treasured keepsake.
Grateful Glass was founded by 31 year old Matthew Olian in 2012. Among the products of the company includes hand-blown glass pendants, rings and cuffs to sparkling orbs and urns made from Pyrex glass or ashes. Olian started blowing glass during his sophomore year in high school after he was inspired by a documentary on the famous sculptor Dale Chihuly.
Olian continued to hone his craft and during a tradeshow a customer asked Olian for a memorial pendant. Having never heard of the concept, Olian did a little research and found out that many people are now choosing cremation. He found an untapped market for cremation keepsakes.
When Olian’s grandmother became ill, she told him that it was her wish to be cremated. The first sample pieces of memorial keepsakes were made from the grandmother’s ashes. Word on his business spread and Olian soon connected with a large network of funeral homes all over the country.
Although Olian did not reveal any specific numbers to Business Insider, he receives orders daily from different parts of the world. However, due to the sensitivity of his business, promotion is through word-of-mouth and his connections in the funeral home network.
