Who could've guessed that rosary beads and crosses would one day top the "haute" accessories list? It's become increasingly common to see entertainers and everyday people adorning their necks and wrists with religious symbols, but do you think the majority of these wearers are making a religious statement, a style statement or both?

Regardless of the message they want to send, these trendsetters or followers have quite a selection to choose from. Whether it's a simple $120 sterling silver cross pendant with one diamond on a rubber chain or a $3,000 set of rosary beads with an 18-karat-gold whistle on the end, these accessories are in demand.

We'd love to hear from faithful followers of religions that tie their teachings to these symbols. Do you feel this style trend expresses a lackadaisical attitude toward your belief system? Tell us about it.
