Crave's new Vesper Vibrator Necklace comes in three colors.

I wanted to create a gorgeous object that functions equally well as a vibrator and as jewelry, with no compromises.

With 3721 backers for a total of $275,420 collected on Tilt.com, the functional and elegant Vesper vibrator necklace becomes the most successful (having shipped to all its backers) sex toy project on a crowdfunded pre-order platform.

As CoolHunting raved, “Wearable tech has never been more pleasurable—or sexy—than the products developed by CRAVE. Their high-quality adult objects stand apart from the majority of the market for their innovative and sleek design...Their newest addition Vesper similarly doesn't disappoint in its sophistication: it's a slim vibrator that also functions as a necklace....Whether you are brave enough to wear it to work, to the bar or even for a plane ride, this conversation-starting necklace is one investment that keeps giving—almost any time, any place.”

“From the early days of the crowdfunding movement we have been big believers in the power of the model to help bring new products and companies to life. As Crave enters a new chapter, we are excited to be a part of what we think is the next phase – customers having a persistent and powerful voice in the ongoing development of new products. Vesper was our first effort with what we hope will be a long and exciting journey of engaging with customers further through the development process."

“We really see this as the future of crowdfunding,” Tilt CEO James Beshara adds. “With the launch of our Tilt/Open Pre-Order tools, we enable innovative brands like CRAVE to engage more closely with customers.”

CRAVE designer and co-founder Ti Chang is thrilled with the success of the pre-order campaign. “I wanted to create a gorgeous object that functions equally well as a vibrator and as jewelry, with no compromises. People should be able to own their pleasure in private and in public.” With the pre-order campaign concluded, the stylish Vesper is now for sale directly to customers at lovecrave.com.
