amethyst pirate necklace (luxury)

i’m just like the next guy. i’m all for strands of purple gemstones that are delicately connected with 18k rose gold links, which have teeny kick-ass, hand-carved coral skulls hanging from them, like this one from german designer erich zimmermann, but does it really need to cost $8900? really?

erich_zimmermann_pirate_skull_necklace

it’s cool, and scary in more than one way.

you can find it at moss, and if you buy it will you please send me a photo of you wearing it? and you bank account number? thanks.
