* This happens at least twice in ''Film/{{Underworld}}''. Viktor tears off the golden necklace with the green stone from Sonja after she's killed by [[OurVampiresAreDifferent sunlight]], then from Lucian after he's killed by [[WeaponizedWeakness silver overdose]]. It may have happened in ''Underworld: Evolution'', and was repeated in the prequel.

-> '''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.

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' episode "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS14E9StrongArmsOfTheMa Strong Arms of the Ma]]", a mugger steals Marge's necklace by ripping it off her neck, psychologically scarring her in the process. Interestingly, she isn't seen wearing it for the rest of the episode, even though the earlier episode "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS5E11HomerTheVigilante Homer the Vigilante]]" reveals she has a drawer full of identical necklaces.

* ''Literature/{{Warriorcats}}'' has this occur to Firestar early on. He was a kittypet who wore a collar with a bell on it. After running away to be with feral cats, several Thunderclan cats disagreed with him joining the cat due to all the trouble the collar would cause. His collar gets torn off in a fight with Longtail. It causes him to win the fight. Firestar wins the respect of the Clan, as well as losing his ties to being a pet cat.

* ''Disney/{{Pocahontas}}'' has a pretty disturbing one -- Pocahontas's father gives her a necklace at the beginning of the movie during the scene where he talks about her eventual marriage to Kocoum. She's supposed to wear it to her wedding, and it used to belong to her mother. (Kina ike their version of a promise ring.) In the scene where Kocoum sees Pocahontas consorting with John Smith and it all hits the fan, Kocoum is fatally shot and dies falling backwards into water. As he goes down, he grabs at the necklace around Pocahontas's neck, breaking it.

** Also happens in the earlier BBC MiniSeries ''Series/TheSixWivesOfHenryVIII'', but since the actress playing Anne Boleyn doesn't actually appear in the Jane Seymour episode it's shot with a double seen from behind.

''Literature/JourneyToChaos'': Kasile rips off a necklace given to her by Lunas and dashes it on the ground. It was a semi-sentient mind-controlling necklace and ''really'' didn't want to come off. It zapped Eric when he tried to undo the clasp.
