Dust to Dust ... to Diamonds?

Now, just eight ounces of cremated remains is all it takes to turn your mother into a diamond.

So far, nobody’s ordered more than 11 diamonds, said Dean VandenBiesen, vice president of operations for LifeGem, which uses super-hot ovens to transform ashes to graphite and then presses the stone into blue and yellow diamonds that retail for anywhere from $2,700 to 20,000.
Now that brings new meaning to "Grandma's ring".
