Below are my favourite repliKates of the week:
My dear friend Giulia, from one of my favorite Instagram pages @lelepug has kindly reviewed her recent repliKate purchase of the KIKI Lavender Amethyst Pear and Oval Drop Earrings from Aliexpress:
I bought my earrings for €4.50 from Aliexpress and they arrived in Italy about one month later (usually every parcel from China to Italy takes around 4-5 weeks to arrive).
I must say I'm so impressed, they are super sparkly, every stone is in the right place and the metal is super shiny and smooth.
They are heavier than a pair of classic stud earrings but not too much, perfect for a night time event or a party, probably I wouldn't wear them all the day.
The color is not EXACT the same of Kate's pair, they are amethyst instead of the lighter lavender shade of Kiki's pair but every stone is super clear and they look more expensive than the actual price.
The packaging was not the best, just a little plastic bag without tags, boxes or anything else.
I absolutely recommend these earrings if you are looking to add a touch of light for your face for a special occasion (probably they won't be the earrings of your life) and if you don't want to spend too much for something you are not sure you will wear often (like me).
Note: I still haven't worn them so I can't say if the metal will become black or not but I can say that my experience with "jewelry" from Aliexpress is great, all the items I have bought are still nice! I also must say to be honest that they are very nice but they DON'T look real gems.
General impression: 4.5/5 (because they don't look real)
Would I suggest them to a friend?: yes
Would I buy them again?: yes
