By: John Kennedy / November 30, 2009

Michael Jackson hasn’t even stopped winning awards since his passing in June, but he’s already become an accessory–an expensive one at that.

Sure there were the T-shirts that popped up the day after, but Delfina Delettrez has taken that a few steps further and tested the limits of taste. The Fendi descendant and jewelry designer created a “King of Pop” brooch that features the gloved one’s famous band jacket and a gloveless skeleton hand made of silver and gold.

Most disturbing of all isn’t the bizarrely frightening skull but the price–just over three grand. –Adrien Field
