One of Damien Hirst's most famous art installations, and that is saying a lot since he has many, involves thousands of pills, so it comes as no surprise that he chose this theme for his line of drug jewelry. A surprising venture by the prolific British artist, his collection of drug jewelry is nevertheless a natural extension of this particular art series.

Dubbed the Cathedral Collection, these drug jewelry designs are absolutely opulent. Yet with prices up to £43,200 ($68,000) for a single piece, people are paying as much for the concept as they are gold and precious gems. It is a limited edition of 25 pieces for two different designs: Pill Ring and Pill Rosary.
