Can you tell the difference? I can’t.
But your wallet can – it’s $500 vs $10.
Yes, that’s how much it is for real freshwater pearls from Dior, as compared to a costume copy of this sweet baby that everyone’s been raving about. Will you go to fashion hell? I’m not too sure, but is it worth it? Probably – purchase 50 of these replicas and you’ll be set for life. You’ll never have to worry about losing one, never have to worry about it falling off your ear, and never have to worry about ruining your one and only pair.
Am I kidding? Who knows.
All I know is that sure, the real deal will be such a wonderful perfect keeper in your collection, and I’d be adored by my future daughter when I pass it on to her (only after I die, sorry dear, I will be wearing these till I’m in my 100s.), but for anyone who’s not keen on blowing 4 return air tickets from Singapore to Hong Kong (check TigerAir for deals right now), this doppel from Rissapicks is just for you.
And if you’ve got time to spare, and want to get your hands slightly dirty, APair&ASpare did a wonderful DIY version of it right here. Why not? Maybe you and all your girlfriends really should have matching pairs of the same pearl earrings – stay classy ladies! You’re welcome. 😉
Edit: Just heard from a personal friend who purchased the Miss En Dior originals, and she found out after purchasing that they aren’t freshwater pearls… I guess that option of keeping my pair as an heirloom is now out the window!
