We’re champions of bling, in fact we’ll go as far as admitting that that original bling dukaan, Bappi Lahiri, has innate sense of style behind those carefully piled necklaces. But even we think there are times when you’ve got to say, MY EYES, MY EYES!

* Eye lenses covered in diamond and gold plating, apparently safe and gentle for the eye. Yeah, right.

Glitters* Victoria’s Secret’s Secret Fantasy Bra studded with diamonds which cost a few million dollars. But won’t those diamonds pinch, at least a little?

* Crystal-studded pacifiers accompanied with a fake famous brand logo: Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Cartier or, eww, Playboy). Seriously? Doesn’t that thing go into your baby’s mouth!

* Bling Water aka Bling H20, which is being sampled by Hollywood stars and featured at The Emmys and The MTV Video Music Awards. The 750ml Swarovski crystal-encrusted, frosted-glass Bling H2O bottle of Tennessee spring water is now available to the public (in the US at least). Who’d want that?

PS: Are you cringing at your shiny watch? Get a copy of BrunchQ to know just how much is too much bling!
