From Emily Ratajkowski to Rosalía, it seems like everyone is going crazy for a choker necklace. So far, so "normal," you might say, but what if we told you that this necklace is made of teeth? No, not real human teeth, but a faithful reproduction made of gold or silver. The "The Erin Taylor Necklace" by Medea is an accessory that challenges conventions, available for 490 euros. Distinguished by the use of precious stones and Y2k-style decorations, it aligns with the current trend of applying colored gems to our teeth.

In a world where fashion is constantly evolving, these accessories represent the boldness and innovation of designers ready to break the mold.
