Would you want a "Michael Jackson" diamond?

Original post made by J, Another Pleasanton neighborhood, on Aug 4, 2009

This morning I read a story about an American company planning to take a lock of Michael Jackson's hair, and create 10 1/2 carat diamonds to sell to the public. My first instinct was to be amazed at their being able to do this, but then I found myself wondering, who would want one of those diamonds, why, and what do you do with it? Make jewelry? I know Americans are fascinated by celebrities, but would you want to wear a part of your favorite celebrity? The cost for the last series (made from Bethoven's hair) went for $200,000

This is really disgusting. People will do anything for money - even kill a man - as happened with MJ. Revolting. Simply revolting to profit now.

Really disturbing isn't it?! I could understand his mother wanting to keep a lock of her child's hair, but I don't understand why anyone else would want one of these diamonds. Kinda creepy...
