If you like . . .
... this £2,270 9ct yellow gold, engraved topaz locking Poison Ring with key on chain from jewellery maker William Llewellyn Griffiths, but could never imagine spending so much...
Then you'll love . . .
...this Topshop dupe! A steal at just £12.50, Topshop's Cleopatra's Box Ring may not be as luxurious, well-finished or long-lasting, but with a saving of £2257.50, it will mean you have some money left to live the rest of your life on.
Later: I've actually been toying with removing this blog post. To be honest, I'm not sure how comfortable I am with Topshop so blantently copying the work of another jewellery designer - right down to the pattern on the band - but the William Llewellyn Griffiths version is so unbelievably far out of most people's price range that, out of initial pure excitement at finding a cheaper alternative, I couldn't resist sharing this dupe. In other words, I know which piece I and others would rather have... but I also know which piece is realistically affordable to own!
Have you found any jewellery dupes?
I have decided I will not be purchasing this Topshop ring as I would just feel too guilty.
What are your thoughts on such dupes?
