Dior 'Golden Dior' Necklace.


Image from nordstrom.com

The pendant on this 'Golden Dior' necklace opens up to reveal "the 24-karat splendor of a creamy golden highlighter for eyes, lips, cheeks." While I am completely open to a product I can "dot anywhere for the perfect sun-kissed glow," I would never in a million years be caught dead wearing this piece of ugly around my neck, "dazzling champagne crystals" be damned. The 'Golden Dior' necklace is something I expect to see in a Barbie doll kit for little girls -- I can't imagine a grown woman wearing this with her cocktail dress to a party, so why is it a necklace in the first place?

Also, Dior copywriters, stones cut en cabochon do not have facets, so please correct the description of the "luxurious amber pendant" accordingly. You're making me twitch.

Youch. This is a far cry from their previous few limited edition makeup-encased-in-jewelry releases.

I think those were gimmicky too, but this really looks like a cheap toy.

Those WERE gimmicky but at least they were sort of wearable. Damn time-difference, I never seem to catch you online. 626am now, I've to get ready for work :)

i wish there was a picture of the content not the outside. i don't know why dior has to release such tacky makeup products from time to time. i have one necklace given by hy husband so maybe men like them? lol

Haha, I like your post on the Dior pendant. I too wonder why Dior keeps on coming out with these tacky little makeup accessory (sp?) cases...

jojoba: Maybe they had focus group trials consisting of tacky nouveau riche young women... I don't know. Or yes, like you said, they polled husbands and came away with this idea of combining makeup with jewellery. :)

siongee: Because many have been mistakenly bought? I think if we ceased to buy them altogether, Dior would stop production of these faux baubles. >)
