|When you die, you can have Dean VandenBiesen of LifeGem turn your body (or your pet's) into a diamond. He uses a super-hot oven to turn the carbon in the ashes into graphite, then press it into blue and yellow diamonds (retail value $2,700 to $20,000!).
Now, when someone approach you saying "why, that's a beautiful diamond ring you're wearing", you can reply "thank you, it's my mother!"...
