My friend’s mom has one of these!!! She had her 2 dogs turned into stones (after they passed of course!) My friend said it was really expensive. I’ve heard people do this with people too, but don’t know anyone who has. I think its a little creepy, imagine if you complemented someones ring and they reply, “Oh yeah, thats my dogs” or worse if it were a person! Def interesting though. And good luck with that proposal!!!

My mom wants to do that with my grandma’s ashes. She got mad at me when I said I thought it was a little creepy but whatever, to each his own. Guess it is just another way of dealing!

And hopefully that does mean he has been doing his homework and shopping 😉

I also think it’s a bit creepy, but to each their own. I’m more interested in his newfound interest in the clarity of the stones! Since when was he an expert? Probably since he’s been doing his homework for your ring :o) Good luck!!!

haha I have loved this idea ever since I heard about it. I’d love to be turned into a stone, who cares what happens to my ashes? Although I kind of want to get shot off into space 😀

I thought it’d be interesting to exchange rings with bf where we had both taken cut hair to make the stone.

Yay for suspicious behavior! A couple of months before my fiance proposed, I was trying to clear a space on his desk and came across a business card. He vaulted across the room to snatch it out of my hands; I later found out it was the card for the jeweler he used 🙂 Here’s hoping that your boyfriend has been doing his homework!

haha that is a very promising sign!! 1 year before we were engaged I asked FI what his mom’s engagement ring looked like and he told me “shiny.” 2 months before we got engaged his coworker got engaged and I asked him what her ring looked like. He told me “about 1 ct round in a white gold tiffany setting.” HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM haha boys 🙂

I read an article about this a few years ago and shared it with my mom.   My mom and I both have pretty morbid sense of humor and we would joke that we would lose the setting and be all, “OH crap, I lost Grandma!”

 

but… Kudos on the new found knowledge that the man knows about jewlery!
