Yves Saint Laurent Oval Arty Ring Replacement

6 January 2012

YSL Oval Arty Ring in Aqua Green - Via
Now, you'd think being in an office was a safe, spend-free zone wouldn't you?! Well, not for me! Not thanks to the Internet. I was browsing plenty of sites but then something in particular caught my eye. I've loved the Yves Saint Laurent Oval Arty ring for a long time now since I first spotted it on a few blogs.

Of course, as with SO many things I see and love, I didn't get it. It's a sad story isn't it! It's a bit pricey at around £140 to £160 ($240) for something I wouldn't wear all that often. I couldn't justify it, however hard I tried.

I'd been browsing at a couple of sites today and then I ended up at Accessorize. They have an awesome sale on right now which is what drew me in. Then I saw this beauty, a very good replacement for the YSL ring. I guess that was accessorizes' intention because I think it's a near copy of the YSL ring. What do you think? 

What makes it more beautiful in my mind is the fact it's a snippet of the cost. I spent a whole £12 ($18) on this bad boy! 

Completely justifiable. I actually consider this to mean I have saved myself money as opposed to spending it!

If you want an Arty Ring Replacement for yourself go to Accessorize and type in 'stone ring'. They ship internationally but the website does state that they're low in stock, so hurry! There's actually loads of other gorgeous rings on there at the moment too.

That's all I have time to share right now unfortunately. At least you know I am still alive now though. I know I usually post at least every two or three days and I haven't done this this week but I do promise I will get back to that next week!

  10. The YSL Arty is such a classic but I think you found a good stand-in. Some of the other lookalikes I've seen have been totally shoddy but I like this one a lot.

  23. The ring is definitely gorgeous! I thought about buying it for a long time, but it was indeed a bit pricey for a ring. Thankfully, my lovely bf bought it for me and surprised me!
    Thank you for following me, and for linking the image back to my blog. I really appreciate it!
    The accessorize ring is really similar to it, and I would have definitely bought if I hadn't already the YSL one. Although I would love to have one in blue as well. hehe
    I'm following you back! Hope to see you again soon! :)

  26. I love the arty ring and have been lusting after it for years.

    I've decided i'm just going to save and buy it this year by cutting out smaller un-needed sprees.

    Love the colour of this Accessorize version, so pretty!

  27. hahaha.... what do I think?
    well I think the same as you are when I first saw it in Accessorize! but I sometimes got an allergic reaction to their products... so....

  28. Thank you thank you thank you for this post! Haha I've been seriously considering the ysl ring recently although i'm a poor student so it'd be pretty silly of me to get it. Really hope I can find one in accessorize :)

    Thanks again xx

    1. I have a lot of American expressions and spelling that I've picked up from living and working with Americans for a long time, that might be what confused you. I'm English, although I do spend a lot of time sitting here trying to correct and re-correct color/colour, favorite/favourite etc. I'm becoming a confused Brit at best now! haha!
