Default Diamonds from your dead relatives.

You can now have a diamond made from the ashes of a lost love one, the process involves heating the ashes to 3000 celsius, then placing them under one million lbs of pressure for two weeks, then it is cut, polished & certified, before being set in a ring or lapel brooch, the result is an approximately two carat yellow diamond costing on average 2000 - 3000.

LOL, that would be freaky wearing one of your dead family members. I can see people doing that, then selling it on ebay!

Sadly, that sounds pretty accurate, Steff.

Which is kinda depressing, lol.

Yeah, that kind of service has been around for a few years now. Rather creepy I say. Also makes it TOO valuable, especially to burglars who break in your house.

An Englsh woman kept the ashes of five pets, four dogs & one cat, & had a 3 carat diamond made, [they were big dogs] she had it cut into several pieces & mounted in a brooch, when she was asked why, she said "now they'll always be with me", my parents had several cage birds over the years, & my mother had them all buried in little wooden boxes, long enough so their tails could be laid out straight, my dad made the boxes.

"That's a nice ring!"

"Yeah, it's my mum!"

"Whaa..how can she fit in there..?!?!"

Haha sorry.. that's amazing though.. I would rather keep the ashes.. I lose chains and rings etc in the clubs..
