We just love ogling high end designer jewelry. It’s why we snap it up from all the jewelry sellers who visit our store every day! Exquisite pieces from the likes of Tiffany, Van Cleef and Arpels, Harry Winston, Graff and Bvlgari are just a few of our favorite things. And while a piece designed by Jean Schlumberger or Chopard is truly an incomparable work of art, those breathtaking pieces come with price tags that will take your breath away too. So, being the savvy jewelry lovers that we are (and always on the lookout for a smarter way to shop for jewelry), we realized that so many of these gorgeous pieces have cousins at much lower price points. They may not bear the name or provenance, but they are still beautifully made and designed to last generations. When all you’re after is “the look” it’s easy to spend less!
The Tiffany Daisy brooch, part of the Great Gatsby collection inspired by Baz Luhrmann’s highly anticipated remake, is exquisite. Diamond-studded platinum stems and leaves gracefully climb toward a bud with platinum and white diamond petals radiating from a Tiffany yellow diamond-paved center. With a delicate smattering of 6.97 total carats of diamonds, it’s sparkly and light, just like its namesake. Its $50,000 price tag though, packs a heavy punch.
Our take on the yellow diamond flower pin is lovely too. Two-tone 18 karat gold lowers the price significantly from the Tiffany platinum version. Ours is smaller too, with 2 carats of round white and yellow diamonds. The same swirling vines entrance anyone who looks at this freshly picked piece, but at a fraction of the cost – just $2495.
