Those who are a little squeamish when it comes to implanted or injected methods of birth control will rejoice at the arrival of jewellery contraception. According to Dezeen, researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology have invented a method that allows the drugs to be absorbed through skin contact via the back of an earring. Requiring a weekly change, the small contraceptive patch can also be worn inside a ring, on a necklace clasp or behind a watch strap.

The inconspicuous mode of contraception offers a more convenient and appealing way to exercise precaution than many of the options currently available.
