Stiletto, High-Tech Jewelry, Alerts 911 When Women Are Under Attack

Stiletto by Secure Couture, a new personal security device disguised as jewelry, is gaining traction among women's safety advocates ahead of its March debut.

When under threat, Stiletto allows its wearer to notify 911 with the simple press of a button that looks like a semi-precious stone. In addition to 911, it can also notify friends and family, a private security firm, or any combination chosen by the user ahead of time.

"For professional women who travel a lot or college students who walk alone on campus, this fashionable technology could be a life saver and one you may wish to put on your New Year’s resolution list under taking better care of yourself," wrote fashion blog Recessionista earlier this year.

"In a violent situation, we want to make sure you get help, exactly where you are, as fast as possible," said Daniel Gladstone, co-founder of Stiletto. He and his co-inventor, brother Alex Gladstone, had the idea to create the device because "We know way too many people" who've experienced assaults, he told Fox News of Tampa Bay

The device harnesses the technology of five unique patents, housed inside a 1" x 1" silver tone or gold vermeil charm and beset with semi-precious stones. It comes in five gem styles (including onyx), two leather styles, and a cross, and can be worn on a necklace or bracelet. It also features an omni-directional microphone, vibration motor, alert speaker, and a rechargeable battery with nearly a week of standby time.

The unique wearable also works with all Apple and Android smartphones, and allows users to cancel a distress signal

Importantly, Stiletto is designed to be accessible to women of all incomes, ranging from $179 to $219 in price. The gems come in four colors: Blue Topaz, Amethyst, Pink Tourmaline, and Smokey Quarts.

"This is one piece of technology — and jewelry — that could be a necessity rather than a luxury," Cosmopolitan said in its review.
