America’s “long tradition” of pampering and memorializing its pets has reached new heights.

America’s “long tradition” of pampering and memorializing its pets has reached new heights. A decade after a few companies began offering to make diamonds made from the ashes of lost human loved ones, gems like the DNA2Diamond above are catching on with grieving pet lovers. Your dog, cat, or bird doesn’t actually have to die to become a gemstone: The carbon needed to create a unique laboratory-made diamond can come from hair or feathers rather than from ashes. The carbon is hyper-heated under extreme pressure until the resulting rough diamond can be cut, polished, and placed in a setting. An extravagant tribute? Sure. But “a diamond Lhasa apso is forever.”
