!! OMG how tacky: LifeGems !!


The LifeGem® is a certified, high-quality diamond created from the
carbon of your loved one as a memorial to their unique life, or as a symbol of your personal and precious bond with another.

How do you create diamonds out of people? And if you can just create diamonds why are people dying while mining them? Wait…that’s it! The people who die mining diamonds become the diamonds themselves, and are harvested by the next workers who in turn die and become diamonds. Damn! It all makes sense now!
No, but really, I get it…I would totally wear a diamond made from a dead person…but I would just want it set in something that wasn’t…you know…HIDEOUS.
Thanks to Icerune for the tip.

  1. Um NO!!!!! Cubic Zirconia is not a man made diamond. Its zirconium dioxide not carbon crystal

  2. No, nonono, no. Cubic zirconia gems are made of zirconium dioxide. They look like diamonds. That’s all. They’re much easier to manufacture and have none of the sought-after properties of diamonds except for teh shiney.
    Man-made diamonds are created in inconceivably hot crucibles. Last I heard about them, they were about as expensive as the real thing and not gem-quality. They were only good for industrial use, like making sandpaper that can file titanium.

  3. Actually diamonds are made every day by chemical process. All a diamond is is carbon heated to an unbelieveablly high temperture under extraordinary high pressure.
    Man made diamonds are called Cubic Zirconias (CZ). Want to know how to tell the difference? CZ’s are perfect in every way, whereas diamonds have imperfections that can be seen.

  4. The diamond idea is cool. That picture is hideous. Do you think fat people come out as bigger diamonds?
    How embarassing would it be to be made into a diamond and it be a really small stone?! Is it bad that that’s the first thing I thought of?

  5. Diamonds are the new Soylent Green
