A Diamond Ring with a Difference

Here’s an original idea for a diamond ring…a company in Switzerland makes artificial diamonds out of the ashes of the deceased. The strange business has clients from all sections of society. The ashes are sorted so that the calcium and potassium are separated from the carbon, of which diamonds are made. To create a diamond, the carbon is placed under immense pressure and heated to 1700 degrees centigrade. First graphite is created, and then the application of more pressure and heat result in the creation of a diamond.

The diamonds are then cut for diamond rings or pendants, and presumably also diamond earrings.
