You Don't Need Kardashian Money To Wear Pretty Jewelry

Nicole Richie, we adore you, so PLEASE don't take offense to our latest post.

We've always been in love with Nicole's House of Harlow jewelry line, especially the black leather necklace that many celebrities have shown off, including Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe Kardashian. At the moment, it is selling for $75 at RevolveClothing.com. The original, authentic piece is pictured in the TOP PHOTO.

We've seen the 5-station necklace at even higher prices, and once in a while, at lower prices.

We've been looking around for a House of Harlow Black Leather Necklace knock-off, and by golly----we have found some.

First of all---nothing can beat the original. Period. But when you want to imitate the rich and famous and you want to save a few bucks in the process, it's OKAY to cheat a little. The House of Harlow knock-offs do NOT feature black leather pendants. Theirs are black enamel.

We found one necklace at WetSeal. This one costs $9.50, and Buy 1 Get 1 Free. Final sale--no returns. We just ordered one by the way, and hope it is as nice as it looks online(Photo 6).

We also found a knock-off House of Harlow Leather Necklace on Ebay. And this one is even cheaper at Buy It Now $2.99, and .99 shipping from China. But the fake must be decent, because 775 of them have been sold(Photo 5).

We thought about the striking necklace after seeing Khloe wearing it on a recent episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians. The necklace has been a HOT piece of jewelry for about 3 years now. And Kim and Kourtney have also worn this necklace a lot.

Do you want one? We all want the REAL leather necklace, but we are also just fine wearing the knock-off.

Do you ever buy knock-offs?
