Beethoven lives on as a diamond

No primary category set

Genunie auction or publicity stunt? That was my first thought when I stumbled upon a diamond created from a lock of Ludwig van Beethoven’s hair.

Diamond made from Beethoven's hairLifeGem, a company that will manufacture a diamond from anything from the carbon of a lock of hair or cremated remains has made three diamonds from a lock of Beethovens hair, one of which is up for sale on eBay. The starting price is $50k (with a reserve) and a Buy It Now price of $1m, with 100% of the proceeds going to “help underprivileged children around the world”. Sadly they aren’t using eBay for charity which would have ensured 100% of the eBay fees would also go to charity.

Not too many bidders will have pockets deep enough to bid on this auction, but the organisers hope a high profile musician such as Sir Elton John or Sir Paul McCartney will buy it.
