Pets, often they become the focus of our lives. They provide us with warmth, companionship and unconditional love every day of their lives. And who would not like to keep a piece of them next to us when they pass away. Well Lidy of Japan has helped us with just that. She makes “memoria” for deceased pets that take various forms including memorial keepsake boxes, miniature pendant urns for their ashes, and the ultimate tribute to lost love, golden-toned diamond jewellery created from their carbonized remains.
The canine, feline, porcine or piscine gem is then mounted in an attractive precious metal ring or pendant setting, placed in a lovely gift box and presented to you with a certificate of authenticity. These can be yours for between 298,000 yen and 1,994,000 yen, or around $2,850 to $19,000 in USD. That is a lot of money but for some pet owners, the expense is well worth it.
