Diamonds are precious and so are our pets. Actually I have a confession, I would probably give away my Diamond ring if it meant I could save my pet. Fortunately this is not a choice I have had to make, however, the sad reality is that we normally outlive our pets. Whenever possible I have had my pets cremated, and their ashes scattered. Recently I lost my 17 year old cat, and though he is buried in our yard, I wanted to find a way to keep him close to my heart.
I went online to search for a truly precious memorial for him, one that would be as individual and unique as he was, and represent the love he gave unconditionally to our family.
After spending hours searching I was starting to feel disheartened as it would appear that finding a unique pet memorial is not as easy as I had initially thought. I was about to walk away disheartened when I came across Heart In Diamond, and was immediately intrigued, I realized I may have found what I was looking for.
So what was I actually looking at, and how can a Diamond be a unique memorial for my pet? More Importantly, if you have had to face the sad and heart wrenching loss of a pet, would a beautiful Diamond immortalizing your pet be the right choice for you?

Having traveled and lived in a number of countries where I have seen firsthand the negative effect the Diamond trade can have on the environment and even used to fund armed campaigns, using this system to grow my personal Diamond is the only option for me.

However, I do have a second cat that has been with us for 18 years, and I am now collecting her fur to keep safe for when I am ready to have my Diamond created. The exciting aspect for me is that I can include the hair from my husband, my son and myself to make this a wonderful family diamond that contains links to all my loved and precious ones.
