Whoa. There are some seriously inventive people in this world. Apparently, this company Algordanza will turn the ashes of your dead loved ones into diamonds. Naturally, I was totally creeped the fuck out by this at first, but then I realized that it’s not really any weirder than scattering Pop Pop’s ashes all over some weird Par 3 course where he got a hole in one.
Can you even imagine turning Nana into some ill bling? How many Nanas would it take to make me a set of giant diamond earrings like the ones Nelly wore in the "Tip Drill" video? What about beloved family pets? I bet your dog is good for, like, at least a promise ring or some shit.
Algordanza lets potential customers know that the diamonds they create by crushing your loved one’s ashes under incredible, hellfire-like heat and pressure, will have a bluish hue to them due to trace elements of boron. AND BECAUSE THE SOUL OF A DEAD HUMAN BEING IS NOW TRAPPED INSIDE OF A REMEMBRANCE NECKLACE. If this is something you are seriously interested in perusing, at least have the common decency to set your new iced out soul trap in 24k gold.
