I think that woulld be kinda cool, then you could pass the ring down form generation to generation.

"Wow what kind of stone is that?"
"My grandmother..."

I don't know...It would encourage killing someone just so you can make a diamond out of them :S

But it would be cool, like some epic story: "This diamond is made from the ashes of your deceased bloodline. You must learn how to harness the power of your ancestors my son"

:p

Interesting find!

It sure has a more sentimental feel than just wearing a piece of jewelery that belonged to said loved one, though it's a little eerie knowing you're wearing transformed (albeit very heavily) matter of their very body.

Man, how bored do you have to be to find out you can make your own grandma into a ring.

Man, that would be the most ackward conversation.

Bob: Oh my god! Look at my ring! This is pure zirconium!
Joe: Oh ya?! Well mine's 100 % Grandmother!
Bob: :0! I wish my grandma was dead so I can burn her body into a diamond
Joe: /laugh

I cant imagine how expensive that would be. The reason they go through all the trouble of mining diamonds in the first place is that its cheaper than making them. Now, think of the price mark-up on ordinary mined diamonds and try to imagine how many mortgages youll need to take on the house and your children to jewelify grandma.

lol

This is way better than an urn (which will at some point get knocked over). If you're ok with cremation then I think it's a great idea.

If the person that is going to be cremated and turned into jewlery accepts and is ok with it then it can be a good idea. I'm not sure I'd want to, but I probably wont care much what happens to my ashes after dying.

"In the field of death care, when someone says I'm really excited about this, I think we've achieved what we wanted to do which is change the culture of death."
It's lovely that people can accept death more but "Changed the culture of death?" Into what? Materialism?

It is a bit creepy, people will probably start talking to the pieces of jewlery and having a loved one made into a ring or a necklace won't have helped them get over it at all.
But it is people's choice to decide weither they want they're bodies made into a shiny rock or not.

If you've seen Firefly; yes, if not then it's decidedly average. I fall into the first category :yes:

Quoted for truth. As in, a general agreeance.

As for the materialism comment, I agree that it is materialistic, but that's why I think it's a good idea. You can, in an admittedly unorthodox way, continue to appreciate them when they're dead. I mean some people think cremation is weird, I imagine they'd have a field day with this.

err actually the reason why they mine for them is that the "self" made diamonds don't have the same quality as the natural ones do.

Well i might consider to be turned into a diamond after my death. I mean how col is it to be immortalised like that? But i sure wouldn't want to be sold or anything >_>
