Tresor Paris Bracelet - Dupe!

Just after Christmas I was at work and was talking to one of my colleagues, and everytime she moved her hand, something sparkly kept catching my eye. It was one of the most prettiest bracelets I'd seen in a long time. I commented on how nice it was and she said that it was a gift from her boyfriend. That night I was browsing my Youtube subscriptions and began watching CosmeticsCharlotte72 'What I got for Christmas' video. How much of a coincidence was it that in her stash of christmas presents was the exact same bracelet I had been eyeing up on my friend earlier. Thanks to Charlotte I became aware of the brand and began searching and it wasn't till I browsed a few websites that I realised how expensive but popular these were. This particular bracelet retails at £149 and the likes of Nicole Scherzinger and a few from The Saturdays have been spotted with this bracelet. However, straight after Christmas with big gas bills looming, this was certainly out of my budget.

Instead I resorted to my trusty friend, ebay. Would I find a similar match? Of course I would, its Ebay! Admittedly I had to wait a few weeks for it to be shipped from Hong Kong, but for £3.99 inc P&P, I really couldn't complain! If that isn't a saving, I don't know what is!

The little sparkly gem of a bracelet arrived today and I am more than happy with it. I'm a little fussy with my jewellery and don't like anything that feels lightweight, simply because it feels cheap. However this has a little weight behind it so I was pleased. It also has an adjustable strap (I panicked at first thinking either they'd sent me a child's bracelet or my wrists had got extra fat overnight!). Some people might not like the rope around the beads, however I think the black against the crystal creates a very noticeable contrast, emphasising the 'crystals' a whole lot more.

I think minus the quantity of the 'white crystal' beads and an extra magnetite bead on each end, this is a fantastic resemblence!

To check out the real McCoy's, see the official website. They have a massive selection of different styles and stunning colours to choose from.

However, if like me, and the budget is a little tight, just a simple search on ebay and a vast array of them will appear.

Happy bidding!
