where bond and blog unite
my thoughts on all things Bond
Hello, i am finally back. Just letting you know there has and will be a lack of posts as my GCSE exams are fast approaching and unfortunately Bond is not a priority. i will be posting any cool videos i see every so often and if i can post i will, i miss blogging and cant wait to get back to it after my exams are done. In the summer i will be jet setting on two holidays and may post about those as i may be going to Montenegro, where some of casino royale took place.
Anyway lets jump straight in to the post!!
Vespers Lynd is the ultimate bond girl in my eyes. her story is tragic but the portrayal of her in Casino royale (2006) by Eva Green is mesmerising. Throughout the film Vesper wears an Algerian love knot necklace which has relevance to the plot, which we also see at the end of Quantum of Solace. The necklace in question is a beautiful piece by Sophie Harley London. The piece is crafted out of gold and silver with intricate details and a luxury finish. However, it also has a luxury price tag of £2,280. I would definitely indulge in this necklace if i had the funds. For anyone who is looking for a less pricey alternative that wont break the bank I've got just the thing.
Here is the original Sophie Harley necklace:
Now here is the alternative:
This is Kikiburrabeads' Vesper Algerian Love Knot, which you can purchase on Etsy (click on the picture to go to her page.) The item i shipped from Australia and it took about 10 days to reach me, the shipping is £3.05 to the UK and varies depending on where you live. when my necklace arrived it was well packaged in bubble wrap and a gift bag. The necklace comes in three lengths ( I got the shortest as that is the same length to the original.) The owner of the shop is lovely and kept me up to date with the shipping and gave me any info i needed. To finish it off the necklace is only £15.27 + shipping so its an absolute bargain. The knot is a little smaller than the original, but this doesn't bother me as for the quality and price it's perfect.
Hope you enjoyed this review and hopefully you will now grab yourselves a beautiful Vesper Love Knot necklace whether you splash out on the original or grab the amazing Kikiburrabeads version.
