We're not saying that the Cartier necklace is anything short of beautiful (It is! And we think that it's probably — definitely — more stunning and impressive up close), but we think that the aesthetic stakes are a little higher when the bill is nearly double the average person's yearly salary.
May we suggest this Cartier necklace for next time? Half the price and with dripping florals, no less! Or, this? A sensational string of pearls, and diamonds, and white gold … for $30,000 less! And, to the naysayers out there who suspect this is a very kind gift from Cartier themselves — Grazia checked, and it isn't. That's definitely one way to treat yourself. (Grazia)
