Perfume Bottle Necklace - Good Idea or Bottle Half Empty?



An industrial designer has come up with an interesting concept: jewelry as a perfume bottle.  I like that the little sprayer is in the necklace.  I don't care for the modern, stark design, but that's subjective.  http://www.industrialdesignserved.com/gallery/Perfume-flacon-as-a-jewellery/2402374

 I can see one big flaw in this design.  The original concept is good, but as you use the perfume, the amount in the "jewel" piece goes down, as it would in a bottle.  Might not be so attractive then.  That's one reason I never added necklaces with glass pendants to hold perfume.  To me, it would just look strange to have a half-full pendant.  Do you agree?

  2. I don't like the design either, but I do love the concept. An opaque or frosted glass bottle would solve the problem of it looking empty.

  5. Others on Facebook mentioned the frosted or otherwise opaque option. The design looks like cheap plastic, but it's just a prototype. I wonder if it'll go into production?
