DNA2Diamonds: Wear Your Dead Pets Around Your Neck

by Hazel Chua

I could give you countless reasons why I love my dog. If I had to sum it all up, it would be because she loves me for who I am and forgives any small imperfections in the blink of an eye.

She has a maximum life span of 14 years, so that means I’ve got 13 more years with my canine best friend. That leaves me a lot of time to plan for what I’ll do when she finally goes. I’ve heard about pet cemeteries and pet cremation services, but the strangest pet-related end-game I’ve read about so far is DNA2Diamonds.

DNA2DiamondsDNA2Diamonds is a service that turns pet DNA into diamonds. The process involves taking a sample of the pet’s hair or ashes and putting it through a 70-day procedure that involves extremely high temperatures and pressures to create a gorgeous man-made diamond.

The process involves putting the carbon and a diamond seed crystal into a chamber with thick metal walls that heats it to more than 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit under about 800,000 pounds per square inch of pressure. After a number of days, a rough diamond emerges…

The rough gem then gets processed into the cut of your choice. Once it’s all ready, you can have it set into a pendant and wear your beloved pet around your neck for ages to come. It’s strange and creepy, yet fascinating at the same time.

It’s also expensive, with prices ranging from around $2,700 to $17,000(USD).
