Reacting to the necklace, American fashion designer Natalia Fedner reportedly wrote on the post, “I cannot. I know so many designers and artisans who work their hands to the bone, spend weeks on a single piece, make it from expensive materials – And charge less than this. Prices like this on cheap items, just because there’s a famous brand name attached, is pretty insulting to those of us who put so much effort into our handmade pieces. 5 minutes of their labor = 2 weeks of ours.”

“What a scam,” wrote another user on Instagram.

“I made my mom this same bracelet for Mother’s Day when I was like, 6,” another social media user wrote.

Would you ever care to spend so much money on a cord-like necklace?
