YSL arty ring size 4 & comparison with the dupe

The must have addition to any jewelry collection, introducing my new lapis YSL arty ring in size 4!!!!!!!!!!


It joins my other red and gold arty. Don't they look so nice together, arty buddies ;)

 red and gold in size 5
new blue lapis in size 4

This was my first order with net-a-porter and I must say I am very impressed. 

The ring came beautifully packaged in a black net a porter box which was carefully lined with black tissue paper.

Shipping was extremely fast. After paying for the ring on Friday night, I received a tracking number by Saturday and today (Tuesday) it had arrived. 

It is very hard to capture on camera but in real life the stone is a very lovely deep royal blue with specks of gold other words, absolutely gorgeous

In it's home:

Real Arty rings on the left, dupes from ebay on the right

When comparing the real thing to the dupe, you can immediately tell from first glance which one is the real thing. 

The stones on the real rings are much more shiny looking. Even from this poor iphone camera picture the stones on the two right rings look more dull.

Also, the setting on the authentic version is much more intricate and the gold color stands out more. The setting on the dupes in comparison look and feel much more cheaply made. Also, even without ever been worn, they are starting to tarnish already.

Without flash. Look how dull looking the stones are on the two right rings. 


Here you can really obviously tell which is the real deal and which is fake
