No words...

I'm not sure what I think about this, to be honest. I am completly at a loss for words. If you have an opinion on the matter, please share it with me so I can form an opinion based on the opinions of other people. I feel like being a sheep today.

Baahhh.

I like the idea. I would think it would be cool to be turned into a diamond after I died.

Crystal said...

Oh I saw that recently when I was looking for online for urns for my dad's ashes.
To get those diamonds made is EXTREMELY expensive!

*shrug*...different strokes, i guess. personally, i've always wondered about people's attachment to the physical remains of their loved ones. it's not my thing, but more power to the people who want to do it.

Ms. Adventures said...

yea I saw one on Family Plots. At first I was like: EW!
Then after I saw the actual diamonds I was like: OOOOH! I wanna be a diamond!

Bad Touch said...

Ah my dream come true. Instead of leaving my wealth to my family, and loved ones, I will have myself cremated and turned into a 4 karat diamond. Then, I will have that diamond crushed into a powder, and have that powder scattered on the beach of Oki! Oh sure I could just have them scatter my ashes, but F$%^ that! Diamond powder is way cooler! It is my money, and I will waste it as I see fit!

I heard about this before a while back.

It seems pretty affordable, about the cost of an engagement ring. what better way to say for eternity? I think I might just ask my husband tonight if we can do this for each other or our children. hmm....

It's not that I wouldn't mind being made into a diamond...that's pretty cool. It's the fact that somebody would be WEARING me after I'm dead that creeps me out.

"Hey, Sandy. That's a great ring. What kind of diamond is that?"
"That's my late husband. He died last year, and I had him melted down into a diamond and now I wear him everyday."
"..."

Crystal said...

you're not alone in that. a lot of people are creeped out by the idea of someone's ashes in an urn.

Personally, I just don't get the attachment. My Dad was cremated because he died unexpectedly and we didn't have enough money to bury him. I have the box of ashes at my home but I never think of it as him. I mean, when I look at it - it's just a black box. I'm also like that with my Grandma. I don't feel attachments to the things that used to be hers. It's all in my heart & head and I don't need the objects to feel close to them.

Now, my little sister who never met our Dad desperately clings to anything about him. She wants a pendant to put some of his ashes in.

Heather said...

she only got a 1/2 carat out of him? Man.. seems like she got gipped.

Spinning Girl said...

No different than cremation, and tidier than that dusty urn on the mantelpiece.

I plan to have a funeral pyre like my ancestors the Vikings. You are invited. (I don't know when it is yet)

Nameless said...

That's messed up, not to mention that I'm not really a big jewelery person, so that doesn't really appeal to me. *shivers*

Pizzle said...

I'm with the crowd.

Baaaa.

I think it would be cool to BE a diamond, but the thought of getting worn...creepy...

curious_karmadog said...

I love the idea...turn me into a ring..

Juliabohemian said...

perhaps he never bought her a diamond while he was living...seems a little morbid to me. Also a waste of money.

Justin said...

I was just telling my friend the other day that I was going to avoid dating women that carried shovels around, because they were always trying to kill me. Now it turns out they can turn me into a diamond? Yeah, can you say "Gold digger" ??? Yikes. I mean shit, I'd love to turn some of my ex-gurls into bricks and donate them to the prison system, but I don't DO it. This diamond thing is wrong on so many levels, I'm having trouble picking one.
