The Political Meaning Behind Selena Gomez's '1973' Necklace

Leave it up to Selena Gomez to use her accessories to make a political statement. On Wednesday, she appeared on Live With Kelly and Ryan wearing a blue and white dress by Chanel that featured a bold print, buttons along the front, and statement sleeves. Completing her look were classic white heels and a 14-karat gold necklace that read “1973.”So, what exactly is the hidden meaning behind the necklace in question? According to Selena’s stylist, Kate Young, the delicate piece — by Sophie Ratner Jewelry — is a reference to the U.S. Supreme Court’s landmark decision in the Roe v. Wade case that established a woman’s right to choose. The necklace costs retails for $380, and 30 percent of the proceeds will be donated to Physicians for Reproductive Health, an organization that works to improve access to comprehensive reproductive health care, including contraception and abortion, especially for economically disadvantaged patients.
