A Unique Tribute to a Loved One: Turn Them Into a Diamond

I am in the process of planning my wedding. I haven't announced it here, as I didn't see its relevance to the topic of this blog. However while reading postings in a forum of a wedding community I participate in, I came across a post about turning a deceased loved one into a diamond. Literally! I'd never heard of this before, but was immediately curious to know more.

I'd heard of cremation jewelry that's made to hold the cremated remains of a loved one. But in this case, the cremated remains literally ARE the jewel in the jewelry. The cost makes it impractical at a minimum of $2490 (unless you purchase multiple gems which brings the price per gem down somewhat). But it's certainly a novel idea!

What do you think?
