I saw Jewelmint's newsletter in my inbox this morning and was jumping with joy because I bought a similar piece in Bangkok for a fraction of the price. see for yourself.
Jewelmint Sorbet Thorn Necklace - $29.99
Similar necklace from a random store in Bangkok - $5
Ok. The geometry is different and it's gold not silver, but the sorbet pink and green are similar. Good enough for me. This necklace from Bangkok has a nice weight and it's doesn't feel like it will break anytime soon. For 1/6 of the price, I'll take my chances. I know I'll get a lot of wear out of this in spring.
I found the same necklace on ebay- $7. Slightly more expensive, but you save on air fare ;)
