-->-- ''How to Murder Your Wife''

A woman wears prominent jewelry in such a way as to draw attention to what she's ''not'' wearing. Normally done with a necklace, probably because of [[MaleGaze just where that pendant is hanging]], but can be any jewelry that draws attention to itself, such as dangly earings, bracelets and bangles, or a waist chain [[note]]Do they exist for any other reason?[[/note]]. The [[{{Fanservice}} appeal]] of this is that since the woman's body is adorned but not actually concealed she's showing herself off.

* A variant in ''Literature/KushielsLegacy'' [[MagnificentBitch Melisande]] contracts Phedre (a courtesan) to accompany her as a "pet" to a court function wearing gauze studded with diamonds, a collar with a magnificent diamond (and ring for a leash), and nothing else. Even though she is an experienced courtesan at this point, Phedre is still both amazed at the opulence of the outfit, and a little embarrassed at being ''that'' exposed in front of every high-ranking noble of the realm. [[spoiler: The opulent outfit is deliberately pricey enough to pay off Phedre's indenture. Melisande was curious to see what Phedre was capable of once a free citizen and not an indentured servant. It ends up being Melisande's downfall... eventually.]]
