Céline's $450 letter necklace has vanished from circulation. Thankfully, we found a $45 dupe.

Céline’s letter pendant necklace has reached cult status, seen on fashion bloggers and celebrities everywhere.

It was hard to get hold of at the best of times – often sold out and with a very exxy price tag.

But now it’s all but vanished from circulation following the departure of designer Phoebe Philo from the French luxury brand.

Now considered a symbol of Philo’s era, the brass alphabet necklaces with bamboo-inspired design have become even more sought after. In fact, various letters are selling on Ebay for $1115… ouch.

But if you didn't get your hands on a necklace before they disappeared, or the price tag made your wallet hurt just a little too much (uh, same) then don't worry, we can help.

You can still proudly wear your (beautiful, bamboo) initial around your neck, thanks to a dupe we've found available on Amazon.

Amazon seller Godyce has all 26 letters of the alphabet available. They're *very* similar to Céline's necklace - and the best part is they cost just $45 (or just $19 if you're more of a platinum kind of gal).

See? Cute right.

And at that price, you can afford to grab all your initials plus gift your loved ones a must-have accessory too.

What's even better is just how versatile these pieces are. They look super glam, so are perfect for a night out, but can also be paired with a casual summer look or used to elevate your usual office style. Basically, you'll never want to take it off.

However if you're after a uh, real Céline piece, the fashion house's new director Hedi Slimane has created a new alphabet range.

This new version is more modern and minimal than the bamboo style but it will set you back $620.
