Help settle a debate, will you?


So tonight, my wife and I somehow got onto the topic of cremation diamonds. Don't ask me how, I'm not even sure anymore. Anyway, we tried to figure out what would be the creepiest use of a cremation diamond. We came up with three possibilities and we can't decide what's worst. So I figured I would come here and ask what few people trickle through my little corner of the web what they think. Here are the options we came up with:

1) A widow gives a cremation diamond made from her deceased husband to her new beau so he can use it as an engagement ring.

2) A widower uses a cremation diamond made from his deceased wife to his new sweetie as an engagement ring (with or without telling her the gem's origin; that's up to you).

3) A son uses a cremation diamond made from a deceased parent as an engagement ring (with or without telling his girlfriend; again, that's your choice).

Or did we miss some other soul-chilling, inappropriate use for a dead loved one's earthly remains? Let me know in the comments. I'm almost afraid to look.

Ya, gotta go with #2. That's just wrong on all levels.

Definitely #2.

And I have a sad story involving this topic. After my grandmother died, my grandpa sprinkled her cremated remains in the grass of his (quite large) lawn. After that emotionally taut moment, we all went inside the house for some lemonade. Later on we heard something outside so we looked out the window to investigate.

My grandpa had forgotten to call the lawnmower man and cancel for that week, so he was out there on his little green tractor, kicking up a storm of dust, coughing as he went along.

Poor guy. I love my grandma, but I wouldn't want her in my lungs...

The widower in #2 was cheating on his wife and killed her in order to make her into a cremation diamond for the engagement ring for his mistress.

Two words: tongue piercing.

Note: this was not my first idea, but I didn't want to upset people too much.
