  • My cousin did this after they had their mother creamated. If you are going to go that route know that it is pretty expensive. If you don't have the money to do that they will put the ashes in charms you can put on a necklace. I don't want to be creamated just so my kids can have a piece of jewelry of me. But if they choose to do this then fine. I think it is wonderful for those that want these things.

  • Oh yeah it's expensive... at least to me... the smallest size diamond (I think 1/10 ct.) in the least popular color is like upwards of $2,500
