Real v. Steal: Yves Saint Laurent

Thursday, May 31, 2012

Have you been seeing these gorgeous "Arty" rings everywhere like I have lately? I first saw these rings about a year ago, but when I saw the YSL price tag, I put it down and walked away slowly. At $250, I can't even afford to look :D

Recently, I became curious and looked up a look-a-like on eBay. I was astonished to find so many varieties in so many colors! They range in price from $3- $300, I guess it just depends on what you're looking for :) I myself, went with a black one for under six bucks! You can buy the YSL one at Saks, but I think I will be content with my "steal" version from eBay.

I love your ebay finds!! I did some searching recently but I found that most of the accessories that I like are usually shipped from another country. Do you have any ebay advice about that? I am very hesitant about purchasing outside of the US.

You know Christine, I get this question a lot, and I have no qualms about purchasing anything from eBay, even stuff from other countries. I use PayPal which is super safe and eliminates any fears that I have. The negative from buying from say Hong Kong (where a lot of stuff comes from) is that the shipping time can be up to 4 weeks and the quality of an item is usually unknown until you get it. The great thing is though, the item has a listed shipping time and I always get mine on schedule and I've had stuff break and the retailers are really good about giving a refund. I don't normally buy things that cost over $10 so the risk in my opinion is very low. I wrote a post on buying on eBay too, here's the link :) http://www.mythriftychic.com/2011/11/fear-no-ebay.html

Really great look a like, but I must say that I'm mostly into the real Yves Saint Laurent ring. One day I'm sure I'll get it - in the gold with the white stone, it's so beautiful!
