I move very slowly at an imperceptible rate,

I accompany life, and survive past demise,
I am viewed with esteem in many women's eyes.

What am I?

Are you

Hair

I move very slowly at an imperceptible rate,

It is like 0.5 inches per month.

although I take my time, I am never late.

Almost everyone has hair.

I accompany life, and survive past demise,

There are still some skeletons with hair on them.

I am viewed with esteem in many women's eyes.

Girls like to have nice hair.

Is it:

Diamond

I move very slowly at an imperceptible rate

Creating a diamond is a very long process

although I take my time, I am never late

Diamonds form in the exact time they should

I accompany life, and survive past demise

Diamonds are apart of life (i.e. jewelry for birthday presents). Jewelry is often passed down through inheritance, so, effectively, diamonds survive one's demise by survivor with an heir.

I am viewed with esteem in many women's eyes.

Women, stereotypically, enjoy diamonds and want to be presented with an engagement ring (traditionally a diamond ring)
