Bizarre Baubles with a Purpose

 - Jan 10, 2009
Usually watches are the most useful piece of jewelry that one can wear, but our Trend Hunters have unearthed some other baubles that have a purpose other than just to look good.

There are plenty of hidden integrated features like high-tech USB memory drives, MP3 players and RFID tags. For safety, there are child-locating bracelets, handy earplug earrings and vibrating wrist accessories to help make life more secure for the deaf. There are also mouth-inspecting rings, cuffs you wear and then put on your coffee cup, and necklaces that keep time with hourglasses.

Just for fun, there’s a salt shaker ring, chewable pendants for babies to enjoy, fragrance dispensing jewelry, and finally, colonic jewelry.
