Pamela Hall grabbed for her necklace, tossing the diamond pendant between her thumb and forefinger. Tears welling in her eyes, she looked around Meridian Mall Macy’s to check for customers. “This is my depression necklace,” said the bridal registry consultant. “I bought it for myself two days after Election Day. Whenever I’m feeling sad about the election outcome, I just grab for my necklace and remind myself that God is in control.”
Hall’s reaction was not an uncommon one – 94 percent of Clinton supporters said they would feel scared if Donald Trump won the election, according to CNN exit poll data.
