So I came home from work the other day and was talking to my SO about an article that I saw in the news: something about how people have their animals and even relatives cremated and turned into stones for jewelry when they pass on. I thought this was a little creepy…BF, of course, thought it was the most awesome thing ever, and he proceeded to look up the article himself…funny thing is, when he was reading about the diamonds that the remains make he let slip “Wow, thats actually pretty high quality! Look at the CC and color!” ….um, this from the fellow who didn’t know a lick about jewelry a few months ago? Maybe someone has been doing his research? Lol. I laughed to myself for a while 😛 but I’m certainly hoping his new-found knowledge results in some equally new-found motivation to get moving and propose!!!

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.

Oh he TOTALLY slipped! I would say he has been doing his research for sure! How exciting!!! 🙂

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!
