Turning baby hair into diamonds

Anyone who watches late-night cable knows that the synthetic jewelry market is thriving. But you may be surprised to learn that one of the industry's more competitive subsets involves human DNA.

Pink Tentacle reports that a Russian company named New Age Diamonds is targeting Japanese consumers with something called the Heart-In Baby Diamond, "a synthetic diamond made from the hair of newborn babies." This is reminiscent of an item we posted late last year on , "a certified, high-quality diamond created from the carbon of your loved one as a memorial to their unique life."

Personal accessory tastes notwithstanding, we prefer either of these options to , a capsule pendant that offers to "capture the breath of a loved one or friend and keep them close. Forever."
