Pill-Popper Necklaces: Would You Wear Them?
July 10, 2007
Sadly, it seems to be in fashion for Hollywoodâ€™s bad girls to get hopped up on a judgment-impairing substance of choice, take a joy ride and end up in prison or Promises. Latching onto that tacky trend, jewelry designers Campise have taken it upon themselves to combine style and substance abuse in their gold Vicodin-charm necklaces. The chains, adorned with a single true-to-size pill, come in 14K gold or white gold and will set wearers back a whopping $648 (for the record, thatâ€™s more than the cost of a speeding ticket and less than a stay at a boutique rehab clinic).
So what do you think? Are these Vicodin necklaces a fashionably tongue-in-cheek alternative to the real thing, or is using the oft-abused pain medication as a status symbol trashy and tragic? Would you feed your jewelry addiction by adding one of Campiseâ€™s necklaces to your collection, or would you rather go sans neck bling than be caught dead in one of these?
