I’ve long thought that these Tiffany Victoria earrings are something special. A very simple design – four marquise diamonds in a pinwheel shape, they are very striking when worn, provided you buy a large enough size. The issue with that – these medium sized Victorias, with a total weight of just over 1 carat – cost USD $8,200. Yes, whoever said simplicity is cheap?
So when I came across these cubic zirconia and sterling silver copies … well, you know what happened. If ever anyone wants to gift me with the real deal, I will be happy to accept. In the meantime, long live costume jewellery.
