Will Kimora's Dog Become a Diamond?

Will Kimora's Dog Become a Diamond?

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


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?

kimora has some serious turkey neck. maybe a diamond would distract from that.

I think using the money to buy that diamond could be put to use for animal charities instead.

I used to want to do this with my cats when their life force left their bodies, but now I find it kind of creepy. Maybe it's just morbid and I don't want to think about it. Maybe it's because I think it just celebrates their bodies (and the carbon within) rather than their lives or energy, which never dies.

I'm not at all offended by it. It's certainly not as bad as what they do to a body before they bury it! Now THAT is disgusting.

I've never heard of this...interesting, to say the least. I guess it might be a nice way to commemorate your family...or your dog, which in our house is pretty much one and the same.

I've heard of people doing this with family members, but none with pets. Personally, I think it's a little weird, but if it brought peace to someone then why not?

Its done with human cremains as well. I think its pretty ridiculous and Im offended by it. I think human life is worth more than a trinket to wear and toss in a jewlery box. But then, thats just my .02 *I also wish Kimora would wear a turtleneck. I hate the fat folds on it. meh.

My mother heard of this company years ago and teases me all the time about leaving instructions to be made into a jewel for me to wear after she dies - knowing it totally creeps me out!
