There’s no denying that jewelry lovers exist all around the world. There’s also no denying that people are willing to spend considerable amounts of money on jewelry they like. When someone prices accessories at $2,370, you expect them to be made of gold or silver or maybe diamond.
However, one necklace that looks exactly like a ‘telephone phone cord’ is being sold for the whopping price of $2,370 online. The internet has taken its claws out in ridicule of the necklace.
Bottega Veneta is a luxury Italian brand and is selling two versions of this ‘telephone cord’ necklace, one in lavender and the other in green. People can also buy matching rings with the necklaces that range from $480 to $850.
Many amusing memes have started making rounds on the internet ever since the prices and pictures of the Bottega Veneta necklace went viral. A popular Instagram page went even more ahead when they posted a photo of the $2,000 necklace next to several pieces of actual phone cords, which sell for $5 each. These $5 phone cords available in the listing were also available in rarely found colors, not just lilac and green.
In the comment section of the viral Instagram post, people went berserk about the pricy neck ornament. Some others came forward to defend the necklace’s price by pointing out that it’s made of enameled sterling silver.
Another necklace by the very same luxury brand is also said to have been mocked by fashion fans. The beaded necklace is made from multi-colored resin beads in red, yellow, green, and blue colors. It also has a white cord and is connected with a trio of silver sterling beads. However, many shoppers remain unconvinced by the luxury Italian brand because of the design of the necklace. Many others claim that they’ve already had such necklaces when they were only kids.
