Dutch artist Daan Roosegaarde is sucking up Beijing’s pollution and turning it into high-end jewelry. No kidding. He’s using technology that’s kind of like a vacuum cleaner to remove smog particles from urban skies. This will create ‘the cleanest park in Beijing’ where people can ‘breathe, share ideas and experience clean air again’.

And as a souvenir, Roosegaarde creates these Smog Rings of compressed smog particles. ‘Each high-end ring supports the cleaning of 1000m3 of polluted air’.

If there’s anything I wouldn’t want to wear, it’d be compressed smog particles. But that’s just me.
