This Japanese Company Will Turn Your Deceased Pet Into A Pearl

Losing a pet is always a difficult tragedy to deal with. As much as we’d love for our pets to live forever, the sad reality is that we eventually have to say goodbye to them. Most of us have our pets turned into ashes, but one company is now giving you the chance to have your pet turned into a pearl necklace.

It sounds like science fiction, but it’s the work of one Japanese company that has developed a way to use bone fragments from your pet in order to create cultured pearls so you can keep your companion with you forever.

The entire process doesn’t come cheap. It will cost you about $4,258 and will take a year to complete.

Japanese news outlet Yomiuri Shimbun spoke with Tomoe Masuda, the head of the firm behind the pet pearls, who said, “If we can soothe the grief of the owners who have lost their pets, we will be glad.”

While cultured pearls are nothing new in Japan, the use of deceased pets to create them certainly is.

The idea was first developed by Yoshiki Matsushita, a professor at Nagasaki University’s graduate school of fisheries and environmental sciences, who was left feeling distraught after Ran, his Jack Russell.

Matsushita said, “Each pearl has its own character, as my dog Ran had his own character. He has become a unique treasure.”

The way it works is a fragment of the pet’s bone is inserted into a ball of resin, in order to make it more likely to get accepted by an oyster.

Once the resin balls are inserted to the oyster, it’s only a matter of time until they are made big enough to be converted into jewelry.
