Weird.

Mani-Jac, regardless how the carbons are arranged, they are still derived from the deceased.

This idea interests me, although I don't approve of deriving the material from the long-past deceased who could by no means have given consent.

EDIT (Buddy): This post contains extreme sarcasm!

Hmmm, I might just get one for my LIVING girlfriend. We could do an exchange, and we'll always be together even when we're apart.

okay, so this is just a way to convince people that others would notice they're wearing something from a celebrity, and in return they easily get a couple thousand bucks. "OMG! I absolutely adore your jewel! IS THAT BEETHOVEN? WOW!" No one would even know unless they were told. Then they wouldn't believe it xP

So basically... Save your money. lol unless you have a loved one and you want to hold that jewel close to you, that would be worth it...

@Overmann, well OK I agree, but they make it sound like it's made out of DNA and it's not, they destroy the DNA to extract the carbon, then make it into a diamond.

But if you want to take it to that extreme, then everybody is part of everybody because we eat plants and animals, that are able to grow because of the remains of dead plants, animals AND humans, for thousands of years.....

I was thinking that they were going to make diamonds out of compressed ashes from other's bodies.

Mani-Jac: Hair has DNA in it. You total dips**t.

I couldn’t decide on which comment to go with, so here’s all of them:

So, instead of giving your girlfriend your mother's wedding ring, you feasibly could give her your mother? Now that's love.


Now diamonds could really be a girl’s best friend, and that’s just creepy.


Just think of the possible sitcom scenarios just waiting to happen:
"You pawned my aunt Martha?"
"Wait ... this isn't my father!"
"Crap! I just lost grandma down the garbage disposal!"


It's a literal comment goldmine, it is!

The DNA is not the key component of these diamonds. essentially every living thing is made up of carbon... or in other words, we are carbon based lifeforms. That being said, any part of ANY life form, or any carbon based object could be turned into a diamond. All that is required is extreme temperature, and extreme pressure. there are machines that replicate the pressures and temperatures that are found within the earth. these are not "sort of" diamonds they are real bonified diamonds..perfect in every aspect, infact that is how (besides the fact that these diamonds have laser etchings to distinguish them) that they can be differentiated from real diamonds which have flaws. the hairs of beethoven would not be enough to make an entire diamond, I'm sure that there would be his hair WITH filler material .

interesting fact: Diamonds are called ice, not only because they appear like ice, but because they are conductors of heat and a large enough diamond placed on your tongue will conduct heat out of your tongue and feel cool...like ice.

i think this is fake. the concept is real, but bethoven?? they dont just dig up celebrity corpses for jewlery

"...but they make it sound like it's made out of DNA and it's not..."

Some companies feel a certain amount of dumbing down is necessary for sales, and they are unfortuantely almost always right. A layman couldn't tell the difference and so no harm is done advertising diamonds made from DNA.

"But if you want to take it to that extreme, then everybody is part of everybody because we eat plants and animals, that are able to grow because of the remains of dead plants, animals AND humans, for thousands of years....."

I'm fairly certain that's the basis of some religion or philosophical lifestyle somewhere, Mani-Jac. Or, at least it should be.

I want a Sid Vicious one It's a bit creepy, but i like it
14 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Wednesday 2/21/07 - 2:06:05 AM EST (GMT-5)
regardless of whether its derived from the dna or not, it was made from your beloved person whoever it may be in each case... celebs also but i think thats a personal thing only family or close friends and whatnot should have. i would want one from my beloved if the untimely were to happen
14 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Wednesday 2/21/07 - 2:15:15 AM EST (GMT-5)
its an odd concept i give u that much but i would even buy one for myself as a conversation piece rofl, then to give it to someone special

If i gave them more hair could they make a bigger diamond? it seems like a nice idea for a wedding ring.
