A diamond ring is a special piece of jewelry, but there is a fine line between clever and creepy when it come to personalizing them. Someone may want to tell this woman who made hers out of cremated cat.

According to a WSJ article about LifeGem, an Illinois business that has made “more than 1,000” of these animal remain rings over the past 10 years, Natalie Pilon isn’t alone. The company has made rings, “mostly from dogs and cats but also a few birds, rabbits, horses and one armadillo.” Pet diamonds start at $1,400, based on a color and size of the diamond. On the upside, since no 2 pets are alike, no 2 man-made diamonds are either, you really are getting a bespoke product. #silverlining

Interestingly, this is not the first bizarre ring to come across our desks. Last year we brought you the divorce ring, and the the anti-cheating ring boggled readers minds earlier this year. Those aren’t the only odd ring trends we wish would go away. Click through the slideshow above for more.
