If you cannot let go off your loved ones, then hold them. Literally! A Swiss firm helps you hold the dead… preciously, indeed!
The firm specializes in transforming the remains of the dead into diamonds.
A 55-year-old man in Italy who lost his son very young now holds him in his hand – in the form of a diamond, reported The Local.
The unidentified father had the body of his 20-year-old son, who had died in a car crash, exhumed so that the body could then be cremated, sent to a special lab Switzerland where it was compressed into a ‘Remembrance Diamond,’ according to a report in the New York Daily News.
The man’s son had been killed in car crash this year in Treviso, Italy. The process of body to diamond transformation involves refining the carbon found in the ashes after cremation and then placement of those ashes in a high-pressure chamber to replicate, in a shorter time, the same process nature takes to create a natural diamond.
