Was talking with my folks last night on the phone and telling them about some research I’m doing for an article on how to memorialize a family member or friend that has passed away. Searching the Internet, I stumbled across a site that turns your loved one into a keepsake diamond. I won’t go into the details, it made me a bit squeamish to think about.
“So, would you ever want to be made into a diamond keepsake bracelet?” I asked them on the phone. We all decided that would be weird and had a good laugh about the thought of wearing my parents as a bracelet or ring. Imagine the strange moments of conversation you would have when someone complimented you on your jewelry.
“Hey, that’s a cool bracelet, where did you get it?”
“Thanks, it’s my mom.”
“Oh, it was your mom’s bracelet?”
“No, it’s my mom as a bracelet.”
I’m sure it’s a fantastic rememberance piece for some people. I’m just thankful to know it’s not going to be a request in my family.
