Man has always looked for a sense of personal security. In a utopian world, Defancy would be nothing but a fashion accessory – but we are living in a world where women are assaulted on a daily basis. Defancy jewelry collection for women encourages active action, in contrast with statistics that attest that in most cases of sexual assault the victim freezes. The piece of jewelry becomes an integral part of the body, and in time of need, can be used for self-defense. The piece of jewelry was designed so that it could overcome the problems and risks of using known self-defense means, like delayed retrieval, operation before use, and the danger of hurting the user herself. Simply wearing them ensures availability and enhances the wearer’s sense of security.
