Jewelry with (Real) Teeth

We just covered a story about the reemergence of cosmetic placement of jewelry on the teeth. Conversely, there is another new fashion trend emerging: jewelry made with human teeth.

Many designers have begun using extracted teeth as the focal point of their wares. Some people are touting these pieces as eco-friendly, which I assume refers to the fact that we personally expend the energy to create our own teeth. Others are playing into the current vampire trend and featuring modified canines. The designer of this piece will actually use a tooth that you submit to craft your item.

I don’t think I’d wear this type of jewelry, but what do you think about these dental baubles?

  1. As long as the tooth has been sterilized, to each his/her own. Frankly, I think a pair of laterals would look great as cuff links!

    Keep up the great articles Katherine!

  2. How cool is it that you can get teeth of your choosing set into jewelry? I’d like to give a wisdom tooth to my boyfriend!
