Think you're ready to propose to your sweetheart? Or maybe you're simply looking for a super unique holiday gift for a loved one? Whatever the case may be, we just may have something that sparkles a little less than your traditional ring, but has all the personal touches you can imagine! Switzerland-based start-up company Identity Inside, is looking to make jewelry that includes a sample of your DNA.
We know what you're thinking -- "Say what?" While the idea may sound a little strange, Identity Inside just might be changing the game forever. According to their website, lead inventor Robert Grass, has previously "pioneered the use of DNA fossils in anti-counterfeit and digital information storage." In other words, he understands this whole DNA thing.

So how exactly does it work? Customers collect their DNA samples using saliva swabs and send them to the Identity Inside research team in Switzerland. They then "fossilize" the DNA into a powdered substance and add it to the inside of the jewelry before adding the diamonds.

And their ultimate goal? To have 3 options for proclaiming love through DNA. A silver ring, a watch with a leather strap and a rose-gold pendant (pictured above). All options include real diamonds, as well as a DNA sample.
