Topshop Creates Givenchy Runway Jewelry Lookalike

After a four months’ wait, Topshop has come out with a lookalike multi strand chain necklace (with trademark charms of course) to give with Givenchy’s fans with less of a budget than $2k something to claw for.  This piece isn’t gold (the metal isn’t even identified; we’re only given “metal fiber”), but at savings of $1,915 I suppose we shouldn’t complain too loudly.

Givenchy’s Gaudy Is To Kill For

So, here it is: Givenchy’s multi strand chain charm necklace, seen on the likes of some pop star named Madonna and on the Fall 2008 runways.  This heavy duty chain work of gold will set you back a cool $2,000…if you can get your clawing hands at it at all.

Sadly, pieces like this cannot be imitated easily (unless they are silver; one should not attempt faux gold) or cheaply.  Budget jewelry done in layers like this will almost always give itself away, unless you find a master metal smith for the masses.

We’re going to file this away in my “Oh God, If Only” category inside my pining brain.  Shall we mourn together?
