As a third party observes, the gesture costs her a piece of jewelry to appease the most dangerous man in the country.

-> '''Reader''': I'm just wondering why you would rip off the necklace as opposed to just taking it off calmly without snapping the chain?\\
'''Katia''': You didn't break the chain, the necklace has a Drama Clasp! It's a special kind of clasp that comes undone when you dramatically yank on it. You used to have some outfits that incorporated them. You'd rather not go into any details on that.
