Actress Lea Michele (Glee) was recently spotted wearing a gold nameplate necklace reading “Cory,” in honor of her boyfriend/co-star Cory Monteith.
The concept doesn’t appeal to gorgeous JCK Magazine writer Stephanie Schaefer, who blogged, “To me, this trend seems to be the equivalent of doodling hearts around your boyfriend’s name in middle school—cute, but also a little tacky and immature.”
Stephanie asked Twitter for thoughts on boyfriend name jewelry and included this highlarious response in her post.
Also included in Stephanie’s post were her suggestions for other types of word jewelry, such as the necklace of mine that best represents my reaction to the idea of the boyfriend necklace.
On the other hand, gorgeous blogger behind iDazzle did make an excellent point:
Yeah, if you break up with the bastard, you can melt a gold necklace down, sell the metal for scrap and get a few bucks to ease your heartbreak. But if you get a tattoo, you’ll wind up spending your hard-earned money to get that fool’s name lasered off your skin. It makes me think of the booze ads that say, “If you do drink, drink responsibly.” In this case, if you do have to wear your boyfriend’s name like a tween would, wear jewelry, not skin art!
But, really, just don’t do that shit.
UPDATED JULY 14, 2013, TO ADD: Sadly, Cory Monteith was found dead yesterday. He was 31.
