You can now buy the gems made out of Pele’s hair

Back in April, it was revealed that Pele was working with Diamantes Brilho Infinito to create a statue to commemorate memorable goals and moments in his career.

The gems were created with carbon from Pele’s hair. No, don’t ask us how or why. Just go with it.

Now, the diamonds are available for purchase online. And don’t worry, you’ve got plenty of options to choose from.


The whole thing is entirely bizarre, but Pele also announced on Twitter on Thursday that the proceeds from the diamonds are going to charity, so at least there’s that.

You keep doing you, Pele.


Pele diamond statues created from his own DNA

Yes, this is really a thing.

For the bargain price of $7,500 you can now own a special World Cup souvenir — a diamond figurine made of diamonds that actually contain DNA extracted from Pele’s hair.

A total of 1,238 of these special edition statues will be available for purchase, one for each goal Pele is said to have scored in his legendary career.
