Would you wear jewelry made from someone's teeth?

Someone shared on Facebook that now you can take a loved one's teeth and have beautiful jewelry made from them. Like for example, you can have a ring and instead of a diamond in the middle you can put someone's tooth there. Even a tooth that has a filled in cavity. I think I will pass on that one. I do not want to wear someone's teeth around my neck or on my finger, etc., even if the teeth are from a loved one and not a stranger.

No way I do have all my baby teeth saved so technically I could make a jewelry piece for myself? Ha-ha, no thank you though.

I don't have any of my teeth saved. I guess parents didn't think it was necessary to save them.

@lovebuglena I saved them cause my dentist gave me a little tooth container and every time they pulled my teeth the ones I couldn't pull, they placed it there. Then told me to place it under my pillow for the tooth fairy. The tooth fairy was my sister since we are 7 years apart

A young person can wear the first tooth he/she lost as a baby on a chain round their neck but with a grown-up person this would look odd. We're not natives from a tribe living in the jungles of the Amazon or in Papua New Guinea where things like that were common.

But I think in their case they wore elephant tusks, no?

@lovebuglena I was thinking more of the tribes which make shrink heads of their ancestors. Besides, elephants live neither in the jungles of the Amazon nor in Papua New Guinea.

@MALUSE I guess I was thinking of Native American tribes.

I too would pass on this. Someone gave me a necklace once w/a small vial attached. I thought it was costume jewelry. I wore it until she told me it had her real blood in it, which is even more bizarre than teeth.

What the heck? And she thought you'd like something like that. Why didn't she tell you it had her blood in it?

@lovebuglena she was probably hesitant to tell me because she knew how creeped out I'd be,would be my guess. She was a strange person anyway.

@jnrdutton Why she would even wanna gift something like that to someone is beyond me.

I don't want anything from a loved one after their gone. I am sure that is what you meant. I don't want a tooth ring or even a t shirt. I love what holds in my heart and there is nothing more needed for me.

I am not sure if the teeth are from someone who has passed or still alive. Did not actually read the post. But it was about using a loved one's teeth in jewelry.

@lovebuglena I would think the past ones but that does not matter I don't want it.

Um, no thanks. I could do an ash necklace where you take the cremation of the person a small amount like mother’s milk to make a milk pendent.

@lovebuglena it’s newer with in the base 2-3 years. I told my husband when I die turn me into a tree. Which they can do take your ash and put in the soil of a baby tree so part of you goes to nurish the tree as it grows.

I saw that too, and to be honest, I'm not sure I would. It all seems kind of odd.
