Not everybody can afford a diamond, much less diamonds plural, which is why rhinestones (does it sound better to say diamond simulants?) are so fabulous and accessible, with the added value of being extremely versatile. Throw on a rhinestone collar with a sweater and jeans for chic casual look guaranteed to get you noticed (in a good way hopefully) at the grocery store, or while having cocktails with the girls. Add one to a simple dress, and go to the office and out for cocktails afterwards. Hmmm, in summary, rhinestones and cocktails go together really well, but I digress, yes?
Heck, even real princesses rock rhinestones.

If I’d been anywhere near Kate on this red carpet, I would have had to stifle the extremely undignified urge to wrestle her to the ground to grab this exquisite collar of faux gems. At best, I would have stalked her mercilessly until I could see the collar in all its fabulosity really super up close (bifocal crowd here) and then asked some incredibly gauche question, like, “OMG. OMG. No, really, OMG. Are those The Crown Jewels?” Well, doh, obvi, these are paste (not really obvi, I thought they were real), and no, we commoners still can’t have them because they’re already sold out online.
