It seems to be a perennial debate — are diamonds or a dog truly girl's best friend? Now, don't get me wrong, I looooove diamonds — glittery sparkles always catch my eye, and would love to have like 1,600 diamonds. However (and, this is a biiiiiig however), I'm not so sure how I'd feel about a doggie diamond.
But, once again, I may not be fashion-forward enough. When promoting her new fragrance, Fabulosity, the queen of bling Kimora Lee Simmons touched upon the sad, recent death of her 18-year-old dog, Zoe . . . and mentioned her unique way to commemorate her pup. Diamonds.
"There is a company that makes diamonds out of your loved ones," she said." [They] make diamonds from a little of the carbon from the ash, so I might do that. I might turn her into a diamond."
Curious how she would do this (trust me, you are)? Learn about the company when you read more.
LifeGem takes the carbon from your deceased pet's (or family member's) ashes from $2,699 for a .20 carat yellow diamond up to $24,999 for a 1.50 carat red or green one — you can only get a colorless diamond up to a half-carat size. They can also create a stone from the carbon from a simple haircut — they'll need about a handful of hair or one cup of the cremated remains to complete their breakthrough process. While it doesn't seem out of range for Kimora's lavish lifestyle, do you think she'll actually go through with it?
