Recent Purchases // Cartier Love Bracelet Replica

If you had £4,450, what would you spend it on? A holiday? A car? Put it towards a deposit for a house? Or, how about a bracelet? Yep, if you had £4,450 to spare, you could purchase yourself an 18K gold Cartier Love Bracelet.

"A child of 1970s New York, the Love collection seals a love that defies boundaries. With undeniably elegant lines and stamped with the trademark screw motif, the creation is a timeless tribute to passionate romance. Studded with diamonds, yellow, white or rose gold: how far would you go for Love?"

Meaning, can you put a price on Love? Yes, you can, and it costs just over 4 grand. Thanks to the Kardashian/Jenner clan, we have been seeing the Cartier Love Bracelets on their wrists near enough in every selfie they take. They caused a little bit of controversy with Kylie uploading a photo of her arm-candy which was worth more than £12,000 - a figure that some people don't earn in a single year. Don't get me wrong, if someone was willing to spend £4,000 on a bracelet for me then I wouldn't be stopping them but how about a cheaper alternative?

A cheaper alternative that cost £1.69 to be exact. Hello, replica.

It isn't 18K gold. Nor does it have diamonds embedded into the screw motif. It doesn't come with an adorable little screwdriver to keep the bracelet securely bolted to your arm. The website describes them to be made out of sterling silver but they are made out of alloy - at £1.69 with free shipping from China, what can you expect?

I bought the Silver and Rose Gold versions. They arrived within a week and I thought I had broken them straight away. They didn't come with instructions so you had to guess how they opened, ie, by giving them a bit of a yank and hope that when the two pieces come apart, it isn't them breaking into two! They snap together easily enough but opening them is a bit trickier. If they were to break then for £1.69 I wouldn't be too heartbroken. I am a firm believer that you get what you pay for but as I literally cannot justify (nor have) £4,000 for a bracelet, £1.69 is much more manageable. Hey, and I can afford one in every colour.
