Tightwad Tuesday: Cartier Panthere De Cartier Ring for Less

My loves, to the left we have Cartier’s purrrr-fect Panthere De Cartier Ring, the very same one seen gracing the pretty paws of Rachel Zoe, Twilight’s Kristen Stewart, Lady Gaga, Leighton Meester, Rihanna, Olivia Wilde, and many more of your favorite fashionistas; to the right feast your eyes upon Shock Boutique’s perfect Panther Ring.

While the Shock Boutique stunner lacks some of the exquisite detailing seen upon its haute couture counterpart; for a mere $30, as opposed to the $20,300.00 needed to take the original home, it is every bit as capable of adding a fierce touch to your accessory collection – at a price that will leave your life savings intact!

Are you having a tightwad moment darlings, or are you plagued with a craving to splurge?


Fashionably yours!


Thanks to Cartier and Shock Boutique for the pictures.

I need to make more money, like seriously. The Cartier one is beautiful but that's more than my mortgage payment for a whole year. Yikes!! I'll go with the cheaper one!

I just can't resist Cartier!

Rocio said...

Waa cool ring, I think I'll go for the $30 since the other costs as much as a car lol:P

DiamondsandTulle said...

That Cartier price tag stings doesn't it. But it's such a classic. For $30 - I'd play along nd get the steal!

She is Sara said...

Hahaha I wanted to yell "EYE OF THE TIGER!!" but that's a panther :P

I love it, so cute! And such a great deal- I would love to wear it to a Tigers game, 'cause it kinda looks like a Tiger :)

anhesty said...

Kristin said...

ana said...

Oh this are sooo cool! Cartier is my dream but I'll go for the Shock Boutique this time!
Love them!

Thanks.

Super cute!

Dancing Branflake said...

If I am getting something Cartier it's going to have so many diamonds on it I will have lost count. $30 is definitely doable. It would look great with a LBD.

Joanne said...

Definitely the right piece to make a simple outfit shine. I actually like the expression on the Shock Boutique, so I'd go that route.

Krysten @ After 'I Do' said...

Oh man, I'd love to own a Cartier piece....

The Blonde Duck said...

How cool is that!

Maddy said...

I woud love to own a Cartier piece, though I'll pass on the Panther. I prefer diamonds anyway ;o)

chaos kontrolowany said...

Great!

Anaiz said...

Wowza! Love the Cartier one but I'd rather buy a car than a ring :D haha!

meg said...

such a very cool ring. but I don't wear them much..I'd definitely go for the cheaper one. I'm glad you posted about it.

nookie said...

I'm poor, the shock boutique it's for me;x

Ebony said...

I think if one wants to go with something of this feel, the Cartier has a better look. It's not exactly my thing, but I could totally see someone in a leopard print trench coat and red heels rocking this ring.

Sherin said...

I love the Cartier one.

sharonlei said...

ediot said...

Grace said...

Cool look--sadly, though, $30 is still too much for a trendy ring like that to me.

Midnight Cowgirl said...

Amazing find! Although, it would be lovely to be able to afford the Cartier.

Josie said...

What a fabulous match! Love it, my dear.

Natasha said...

Cartier, no doubt, even though a girl's best friend is always Tiffany's.

THE ALTERNATIVE WIFE said...

I so love the Cartier but I could never do it...It's gorge!

Jessica said...

I think the cheapie version is juuuuuust fine in this situation!

Tasha said...

Although I could never actually spend that kind of money on a ring, I'll play make believe and splurge!

Clare said...

What? That Cartier ring is 20k? That ring is 20k?! Okay no that won't do. I would rather buy a house with my 20k... thanks

Sweet Confessions said...

Rachel said...

Oh my! Over $20k?! That's just crazy! I'd definitely snag the Shock Boutique ring though. He's still one fierce panther!
