Capsule Culture

It's a pharmaceutical world, baby. Ever since that camp classic, Valley of the Dolls (fine, a cautionary tale, but the caution wore off), popping pills for what ails you has become more and more acceptable. Why not give your favorite medical fan a permanent present?

Like this "Doll" capsule necklace. Made of either silver or gold vermeil, the pill wobbles on a delicate chain, rather beguilingly in your friend's valley. She may not be able to take this pill when necessary, but it's a reminder that help is only a drugstore visit away. It's hip, it's cool, and, if you partake of the therapy yourself, it makes a great present for your psychiatrist, too.

The "dolls" are available in earring form, too, but that seems a bit too disco for everyday wear. Get the prescription filled at
