Washington resident, Katie Breckinridge, reached out to Maple Grove, MN based Infinity Diamond with a special request.  Her beloved cat "Baby" passed away and although her grief had subsided somewhat with time, she still longed for a special way to hold on to her cat's memory.  Infinity Diamond's lab in Europe focuses on producing GIA certified diamonds from DNA obtained from hair or fur.  Scott Shaffer, Company President, said "We recieve many orders from people celebrating a marriage, anniversary or reunion and, occasionaly, people come to us who have lost pets.  Creating a diamond from their fur or ashes gives them a special link to their pet that brings them profound joy."  "Thank you so much! I can talk about Baby now without crying" said Breckinridge.  "I guess I have what they call closure.   What you guys do is so important.  I thank you from the bottom of my heart." "Her comments are probably the most rewarding aspect of our jobs here", said Shaffer.  Katie Breckinridge's beautiful 1.36 carat Infinity Diamond was set per her request by Jarad Jeweler.
