Less creepy than your usual animal-bone accessories, Monique Péan’s one-of-a-kind prehistoric-pendant necklace contains fossilized walrus, dinosaur bone, white gold, and diamond accents. (The price tag: $57,000. Welp!)
While the idea of carrying the remains of a T rex around your neck sounds pretty crazy, it’s not entirely unusual. Apparently dinosaur-dung jewelry is actually a thing. And, dinosaur bones are actually fairly easy to come by — you can find them on eBay! — so jewelers don’t have to crash an archeological dig or break into a museum to get the stuff. (Though there is, obviously, a finite number of bones available.)
Still, dinosaur remains in fine, fashion-forward jewelry? That’s definitely new. But, at $57,000, we’re not sure if even the most well-heeled Jurassic Park fan would pounce on it. (The Cut)
