Amid all the hype for Disney’s real-life adaptation of Beauty and the Beast — Emma Watson as the star, Ariana Grande and John Legend for the music, L'Oréal with the makeup collab, Morgan Taylor with the nail polish — you might have thought this debut couldn’t get any more outrageous.
You were wrong.
Piled within the mountains of merch, HSN is dropping its own collection with Beauty and the Beast, WWD reports, which will hit HSN’s site on March 1st before going on sale on March 14th. The collection, which is priced from $14.95 to $799.95 (!), ranges from home goods to shoes, clothing, and bags.
There’s also jewelry in the mix. And not just any jewelry. The collection features a statement necklace from designer Heidi Daus which can only be described, really, as a huge-ass castle. See for yourself:
In short: Good God. This necklace really is something else. It’s also selling for a whopping $349.95.
Honestly, this necklace invites all sorts of questions. Like, where would you wear this thing? Also, who told the designer that a woman wants to wear a giant castle around her neck? True, anything Disney- and Princess-related is usually extravagant — but this jewel-encrusted citadel feels next level.
But, well, while we’re at extravagant, might as well take this opportunity to introduce Elana Fishman, Racked’s in-house pun master, to drop a few lines (hummed in your head to Beauty and the Beast tunes). Because in lieu of actually buying a $350 Disney necklace, that’s pretty much all we can do:
Be our guest! Be our guest! Do you want to be worst-dressed?
New and a bit alarming / Who could ever thought that this could be? / This necklace isn’t charming / But there’s something in it that I simply cannot see!
Look there it is, that gem is strange, no question / A most peculiar bagatelle!
Tale as old as time, this necklace is a crime / It is such a beast!
Kill the beast! [Ed note: This one’s self-explanatory.]
