Jeweller Makes Diamonds Out Of Cancer Patients’ Hair Loss

sky and livi hair loss chemo diamond pendant the belgravia centreLosing hair to chemo or other forms of cancer treatment can be one of the hardest aspects of the process to come to terms with, leaving many women lacking confidence and feeling less feminine. A jewellery company has attempted to turn the trauma of hair loss into something more positive by creating real, lab-grown diamonds out of locks of hair from women who are going through cancer treatment.

Diamonds Are A Girl’s Best Friend

The company, SKY and LIVI, hopes to give women a jewel that can act as a reminder of their strength, bravery and beauty through this difficult time. Inspired  by her own personal losses and scares due to cancer, CEO and founder Anjanette Sinesio saw how the emotional state of the sufferer can play a big part in their fight and recovery.

Sinesio also cites evidence obtained by Dr. Lissa Rankin with regards to how the “placebo effect” created by positive thinking and strong beliefs and emotions can directly affect the healthy cells in our body.

“Unwavering Strength”

Whether or not this is the case, Sinesio’s beautiful pendants are certainly a novel idea. The technology behind the diamonds uses the unique carbon signature of the woman in question’s hair. Sinesio explained: “I see the diamond and pendants I designed as an outward symbol of a woman’s unwavering strength to fight cancer. It’s her chance to tell cancer, you can take my hair, but you can’t take me.”

The diamonds are available in a variety of colours, and can be set into one of five different pendants. In a further compassionate gesture, SKY and LIVI will donate $100 from every diamond purchased to charity Look Good Feel Better, a charity dedicated to improving the self-esteem and quality of life for those undergoing treatment for cancer.
