It’s the killer of a thousand gorgeous dreams — your eyes say, “Yes, yes!” but there’s “No, no,” ringing loud and clear in your wallet.
That’s how I felt when I clapped eyes on this Catherine Michiels Gold Lotus Pendant. The bright silk ribbon, the delicately rendered pendants — I was suckered in. (I’m not the only one — InStyle fell hard for them after seeing them on Sharon Stone.)
The bad news? This gorgeous bauble clocks in at about $855. You can already hear my wallet screaming.
Luckily, it looks like Catherine is one of those beloved designers who understands that something can be just as beautiful in sterling silver, and that for a poor fashionista like me, $95 is a much nicer price for my perfect summer necklace.
