Breaking Dawn Part 2 Replica Jewelry

So I’ve done my Breaking Dawn Part 1 jewelry post, now here’s the Breaking Dawn Part 2 post.  I have to say, I love these items much more than the part 1 items.

Renesmee’s Quiluette promise bracelet and Bella’s Cullen crest cuff

cullen_braceletsLove Renesmee’s bracelet.  Love the colors, love the feel, love the closure.  I have three of these bracelets because I wear them all the time.  I was afraid the threads would eventually break (I’m a little rough with my hands).  I thought it couldn’t hurt to have more than one just in case.  And since Hot Topic had a buy 2 get 1 free sale, why not?  It is on the small side so anyone with a 7 inch wrist or bigger will have to find a way of creating an extension.  For my barely 6 inch wrist, however, it is perfect.

I didn’t realize until recently that Bella wore her own version of the Cullen crest cuff.  I HAD to have it.  Unfortunately my wrists are so small that the cuff moves around my arm a lot (the cuff has two snap closures but still measures a good 8 inches end to end).  Rick at Artisan’s Designs said he would be willing to rivet a crest to a cuff for me, but I need to come up with the money to afford the crest first.  And the cuff itself since he was unable to find any leather cuffs less than 8 inches.  I think a trip to Michael’s will have to happen.

Bella’s wedding ring set (parts 1 and 2)

As I said before, I have both part 1 and part 2 wedding ring sets.  Other than packaging I can’t really tell the difference between the two.  The part 2 set was free for me (see the Renesmee bracelet description) and is in better condition.  They are still size 7s so boo.

And, as stated previously, I have handmade versions.

The one featured here was purchased on Etsy and is made of sterling silver and 109 Swarovski crystals.  Artisan’s Designs makes the version of the engagement ring that was in Eclipse (from what I can see, the BD version is a little more round where the Eclipse version is more flat) but it costs $750, which I have not yet been able to save.  This sterling ring was a more affordable $129.99.

Renesmee’s locket

Whatever I didn’t pay for any of the other BD items, parts 1 and 2, I paid for in this one.  I was one of those “fortunate” people to preorder this from Hot Topic only to be told they were not going to ship them due to product defectiveness.  HT told me they contacted the manufacturer about the issue and if they get more product they would ship my order to me.  This was contrary to the message they sent to others saying they would not be getting this product again ever.  Not knowing who to believe I jumped on eBay; a defective product was better than nothing.

The popularity and rarity of this product is crazy, and I spent many days on eBay bidding on auction after auction hoping to get this locket at a reasonable price.  Fate apparently wanted me to buy it from this one specific seller who had a fixed price that was in the slightly higher spectrum.  But it had free shipping and I would get it in 2-3 days due to the seller’s close proximity.

Like I said, whatever I didn’t pay for the other items was invested in this one.

Breaking Dawn Part 1 Replica Jewelry

Breaking Dawn part 2 is the last of the Twilight Saga movies.  While I enjoy the series, I far prefer the books.  I also have friends who have not read the books or seen the movies and yet completely despise the series.  Whatever.

The replica addict in me jumped on the many BD replicas, some from the first movie and some from the second.  I am most especially attracted to the jewelry replicas that all the Cullens wear.  Since there’s so many of them, I decided to split them between what was released when BD Part 1 came out and those released when BD Part 2 arrived.

I will admit, though, some of these items I held off getting for a while.  Good thing too because I got some of them at a reduced price.

Rosalie’s BD pendant

I loved Rosalie’s original Cullen pendant, and I’m still trying to save enough to get the sterling version from Artisan’s Designs.  But this one caught my eye very quickly.  I love how it’s similar in its placement and relative simplicity, but different in this coloring and overall design.  Initially I disliked Rosalie but her character started to grow on me towards the very end of New Moon.  And at $9.99 from Target.com, what is not to love about this?

Alice’s BD triple pendant

I much prefer Alice’s Cullen choker to this triple pendant.  However, Alice is one of my favorite characters so I had to get her pendant.  I held off getting this because others have commented on how the chains break.  I saw it once at Hot Topic and was taken aback by how “big” it was compared to the choker.  But, once again, Target.com came through and I was able to purchase it for $13.99

Bella’s St. Jude bracelet

Technically this isn’t a BD item, but it was released (rereleased?) along with the other BD replicas.  Not a big fan of this bracelet, and I’m not sure why.  But since I have a lot of Bella items I figured I should have this one.  And for only $4.99 from Target.com, why not?

Bella’s wedding ring set (parts 1 and 2)

bd_engagement_1

Yes, that’s right.  I have the wedding ring set from both parts 1 and 2.  Which are exactly the same except for the packaging.  The above picture is only showing the part 1 set.  My set is a little scuffed, especially the plain band.  I can’t wear the rings though since they are size 7 and that is too big even for my thumb.  I do also have other versions of the engagement ring.  Along with my part 1 set is a costume jewelry piece from Infinite Jewelry (left) and one of the two handmade inspired pieces from Etsy (right).  I’m not sure what this first Etsy ring is made from but the second is sterling silver and looks almost exactly like Bella’s.

Bella’s Hair Comb

Probably one of my favorite items but I held off buying it for a long time (actually, I bought all of the part 1 pieces just before/after part 2 was released).  I got it off of Amazon.com, and thanks to some cc reward points it was free.  I have had no occasion to wear it so it remains in its velvet box inside the Neca packaging.  It’s gorgeous though.
