Vivienne Westwood jewellery advice

Posted 3rd Dec 2023 (Posted 23 h, 16 m ago)
My 12 year old has asked for an orb necklace for Christmas, the link she has sent me is from Etsy for about £20 so it will be fake. I’m happy to buy a genuine one from Selfridges etc if the quality is better but not fussed for paying more if the materials are the same anyway.

My questions are -

Has anyone had any experience good or bad with their jewellery either real or fake? My main concern is I don’t want it to rust or tarnish as this seems to happen with a lot of jewellery and it ultimately ends up in the bin!

Does anyone have any working discount codes for genuine sites that sell them? Had a quick look and can’t seem to find any.

Thank you!

    Ive just done a quick google search for vivenne westwood jewellery and clicked the first item which was £100 necklace from beaverbrooks.

    It said

    Metal: Brass,Silver Tone

    Which confirmed my concerns. These brands dont even use real gold or other metals that wont tarnish.…ish

    Exactly, so looks like I’d be just paying for the name rather than quality. So may as well buy fake unless someone can confirm differently. Thanks!

    I've bought a definitely real necklace and a bracelet in the past and both have tarnished/worn within a year. I've also bought fake from AliExpress which has also done the same... Bass metal jewellery will always tarnish over time... especially if worn when applying body products/perfumes etc
