    I am repulsed by even having ashes of anything in the house let alone turning them into something that I’m going to wear.

    Not for me.  I’d rather my loved one, pets included go in peace and let their bodies rest in peace.  Though I’m all for keeping mementos to remind and celebrate, more like a collar or even just pictures tho.

    Honestly, I am on the fence. I would but then again I wouldn’t. I actually kind of like the idea.

    I think I’d rather plant a tree over their grave, to be honest. I can just imagine wearing a pet as a diamond “Here’s little Rover, look, doesn’t he just sparkle?”

    It’s not for me. I wouldn’t really judge if others did this though.

    I might do it hypothetically, but the cost is prohibitive enough that I’ll never have to consider it.

    @LadyElva:  Yeah, the “sparkle” aspect is part of what’s throwing me. It could be done in a sort of frivolous way an that just seems really squicky. But then again I imagine it could be done with more taste and somberness, like Victorian “mourning jewelry.” It could even be a gem instead of an urn kept on the mantle, not worn. Since I always worry about knocking over urns, I can see people preferring something more durable to keep in a place of honor. Personally, I find the pet’s name tag to suit that purpose, but someone else may prefer this.

    Totally thinking about it as she sits here next to me.

    Though it might make me miss her more when she’s gone. 

    My son just said: “She doesn’t want to be a diamond mommy” lol.

    See I was totally weirded out until I saw that they used cremated ashes to make the diamons. I have no clue why, but that seems way less creepy than just taking a dead cat and doing it.

    See, if my choices were between having an urn full of ashes, or a diamond I could wear, I would go with the diamond I think.

    That being said, I’m not too attached to animals, so this is really more of a theoretical issue on my end.
