Retail Therapy: Nicole Uses Jewelry To Heal

Nicole Richie has been sporting jewelry that helps work on her glow. And we ain't talkin' 'bout bling.

Richie's been wearing Mintee necklaces (around her wrists), which are made of healing Indian beads that claim to strengthen one's aura. Not even Harry Winston can say that.

The necklaces, with names like Beauty, Harmony and Peace, target different problem areas with aromas and beads that promote better circulation, reduce stress or attract good luck, among other things.

The paper-thin princess, who passed out at Hyde last month, recently checked into a facility to determine why she can't gain weight.

If a cheeseburger can't fix her problems, perhaps a necklace can.
