Ooh, lookie here! Banana Republic has gone and designed a marvelous Crystal Collar necklace, made in the likeness of the $35 Zara piece the Duchess of Cambridge wore to the Royal Film Premiere of Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom.
Catherine paired the costume necklace with a cream Roland Mouret gown, the same one she wore to a private event at Claridge’s in May 2012.
Right now, Banana Republic is having a 40% off sale, which applies to the necklace ($79.50). Features include a base metal setting with glass stones and a foldover closure.
The reviews on the piece are in, and most are positive. But, as we ALL know, there’s one in every bunch:
“I’m returning this right away. I bet you people wouldn’t even see my face because they’ll be blinded by this necklace. The stones are much BIGGER than I thought from the photograph. I thought it was a delicate, lacy thing. I’m no wallflower, but think this is better suited for someone with a far louder wardrobe.”
Can you believe it? The stones are like a blinding light from God, and anyone puts it on will become faceless in a sea of crystals. FACELESS.
