Red Carpet to Reality: 3 Alternatives to an Amrapali Diamond Necklace Worn by Katy Perry

Singer Katy Perry has worn a multitude of questionable red-carpet ensembles, from a carousel-skirted frock at the 2008 MTV Europe Music Awards to a dice-adorned dress on the Today show in 2009. But as she matures, so does her taste, and on Dec. 4 in Hollywood, the “Teenage Dream” singer donned a diamond and gold Amrapali necklace worth $18,910 to the Carole King Music Celebration benefiting Paul Newman’s Painted Turtle Camp. Customers with the same bib-licious taste can make the look their own through similar silhouettes in less-pricey materials. Here are three options below.
