“that’s a lovely diamond.” “thanks, it’s my dead husband.”

lifegem.pnggood lord. thanks to ysmarko reader dean for the link to this gem (ha!) of an idea: lifegem, a diamond created from the remains of your loved one. seriously.

according to the site:

The LifeGem® is a certified, high-quality diamond created from the
carbon of your loved one as a memorial to their unique life, or as a symbol of your personal and precious bond with another.

…because love lives on… in a chunk of bling!

(make sure you don’t miss “lifegem for pets“!!)

  1. I’ve seen this before – it’s creepy. I’m imagining the wife fattening up the husband before he croaks so that she can get a bigger rock. Or the young man proposing who says, “No, no, it’s not my grandmother’s ring, it’s my grandmother!” Shortest engagement on record.

  2. I used to work in a funeral Home while in college and we would sell all kinds of things like this. We could have cremains placed in a fake tree stump for your yard, mixed in with gold and molded to look like the deceased fingerprints, or, if you choose, we could have them blasted into space. Oh the wonderful options!

  3. Isn’t this so much better than a blood diamond? At least a loved one can choose of his or her free will to be converted into bling in this case.

  4. this idea actually featured in an episode of Boston Legal a few weeks ago….the lady was suing because her mother was supposed to be in the diamond, and they gave her a fake cubic zirconia instead. It was all very weird.
