Yves Saint Laurent Launches Controversial Penis Jewellery Line

When you think of designer jewellery you normally think of diamonds or well thought out bespoke designs that you'd be proud to show off.

You probably don't think of earrings with a penis hanging from them or a necklace with a huge phallic object dangling off the end.

Well prepare to be confused because Yves Saint Laurent just launched a very controversial jewellery line and everything is penis shaped- just in time for Christmas.

We're not too sure what kind of event you could wear this too but given the stiff competition in the world of jewellery I'm pretty sure you would make a long lasting impression.

The golden brass penises are all engraved with Yves Saint Laurent and are priced at £215 for the earrings or an amazing £520 for the necklace.

One thing we do love is how YSL haven't even tried to come up with a creative name for the products, they are literally called 'penis pendant' and 'penis dangle earrings'.

The earrings are for pierced ears only and the necklace has an adjustable chain.

We're also sorry to disappoint you but they are only available to buy in store.

That's right if you want to own some penis earrings you can't hide behind your postman. You will have to walk into store and ask for them.

To be honest I have a lot of respect for anyone who can walk into a designer shop and ask for a 'penis pendant' with a straight face.

In 2013 Kesha also released a collection of penis-shaped accessories including earrings, charms, bracelets and a necklace as part her Grow A Pear jewellery line by Charles Albert.

A year later Tom Ford caused a lot of controversy when he released a penis pendant necklace which appeared to be in the shape of a cross.

If you quite like the idea of wearing a penis around you neck, you don't have to pay YSL prices are there are plenty of affordable and phallic options out there.
