Why choose a Precious Pet LifeGem diamond?
This question is part of the text on a page at www.lifegem.com. They will take the ashes, or hair, from your Beloved Phideaux, or Fee-Fee [if your a Doc or a Lawyer] and turn it into a DIAMOND! Don't believe me? Think I'm pullin' y'all's leg? Click on the link.
BUT, some one who will spend somewhere between $2699 for a .20 carat Yellow MAN MADE Diamond and [take a DEEP breath] $24,999 for a 1.50 carat Red man made diamond, from their dawg's [or cat's] ashes has WAY more money than sense!
And we're not even talking FLAWLESS man made diamonds, here, y'all. They practically guarantee these thing to HAVE flaws. In one letter I read, the Lady THANKED them for the flaws, after all, "He wasn't perfect." For 25K, I'd by Gawd and Greyhound want a diamond that was not only PERFECT, but would fetch the paper and attack on command! I'd want a diamond that was so dazzingly brilliant it would almost BLIND folks who GLANCED at it.
Oh, I forgot to mention, these prices are for UNSET stones. You still have to buy a mounting for them. Unless you were so ga-ga over GiGi that you're willing to unset GrandMa's engagement ring and put the hound's remains in that antique setting. Of course if you've got 25 thou to blow on a freakin' man made diamond from your mutt's, hell, even your Pure-Bred's ashes, you're not gonna be sweating where to come up with the cash for a mount for it, are y'all?
Now here's another thing to consider...you got your shiny new rock in it's shiny new setting, either on your finger, or on a chain around your neck so it can be close to your heart... aww, I'm tearin' up here. You're at a party. SOmeone notices your jewel, they compliment you. You thank them for the compliment and say, "Yes, BigBoy was the love of my life! And he always had a Red collar when he was alive, so when he died, I sent him to LifeGem and they turned his ashes into this gorgeous diamond for a mere $24,999! Now, I can wear him next to my heart until I die. Then he'll become a Family Heirloom for my Grandchildren to cherish." Can you just imagine the looks of admiration and envy you will garner from your friends and acquaintances?
Why, if I did that, my kids would have me before a judge and declared incompetent so fast it would take a week before my head would stop spinnin' And they LIKE my dawgs!
In fact, let this be my testament...ABG, Son, if I ever go off my rocker or any future meds on which I may be placed, and do something completely wacky like this, please, have me declared incompetent, before I squander any MORE money!
