Real vs. Steal – Alexander McQueen Swarovski Crystal Double-Skull Bracelet

I so would love to own this absolutely beautiful twin skull bangle by Alexander McQueen, but just can’t warm up to the thought of spending $330 on a piece of gold-tone brass. Maybe if it would go on sale for half price off I would consider buying it but until that happens I’ll have to find something (way) less expensive to get my McQueen fix.

HOT DEAL: Use promo code “GJSHIP60” to get free shipping on your $60+ order!

Et voilà, GoJane provides the perfect stopgap until I can afford the real deal. Their Twisted Double Skull Bracelets do have a few differences such as added rhinestones, but they still give off the same vibe as the McQueen original. At only $8.10 per bracelet I’d buy all 3 versions: gold, pewter and silver!

    I love the original! I wouldn’t even pay half though. It’s a huge bangle so MAYYYBE $100 lol & that’s pushing it!
