Designer Dupes Vol. 2: Dainty Necklaces

     Today I’m continuing my new series, “Designer Dupes” (read my last post in the series here)!  It’s no secret that while many designer pieces are absolutely gorgeous and so tempting, the price tags often cause us ladies on a budget to turn away.  That’s why I started this series in which I round up a few designer pieces I’ve been coveting along with their almost identical dupes!  After you see each pair of products and their prices, I list the differences between the two so you can decide for yourself which one’s a better deal.  In today’s installment, I’m sharing a handful of high end dainty necklaces and their cheaper lookalikes.  I love dainty necklaces and wear one practically everyday, but I don’t love them quite enough to break the bank!  In today’s post I’m hope you’ll find a cheaper necklace that will provide the same look as a more expensive one you might have already had your eye on.  Find each product’s link by clicking on it’s picture or name.  Enjoy!

  1. All outfits need a good accessory. I like that Elisa Pendant Necklace In Citrine. It’s simple but gorgeous. We need to dress up any look with the right necklace.
