    They're not exact, but you can they are super similar.

    You can buy them at Urban Outfitters or urbn.com

    Thanks Luna. I saw those too. But if you look at the Rachel Bilson earrings, the butterflies are bigger, and also attached to the chains at different angles. Much nicer! The UO ones are great alternatives, but I'm still trying to find the originals. Arent they amazing?

    Yea.. I also noticed they're not as long and the butterflies are a bit smaller.. but they're a great alternative to the real thing.

    EDIT: Ugh.. I can't type for crap.. sry for all the typos in my previous post.

    Well, what you can do to replicate it is - go out and buy the urbn pair, get some extra gold chain and gold jumprings (the circles), cut the chain to a certain length to your liking, open on of the links on the chain (the chain MUST have a way to open each link so you can do this), take off the existing butterfly on the Urban version, attach the new section of chain to the old one, put the butterfly back on (in whatever angle) - do this to the rest until I resembles the one Rachel is wearing.

    It might sound like a lot of work, but it's just a few supplies and a bit of deftness with pliers. If you don't find the actual ones she's wearing, this would be a good alternative, I think. It looks like the Urban version's butterflies have holes all throughout like the original pair, so you could easily slip a gold jumpring through a hole and create the "angle" so the butterfly is hanging by the wing and not the center...:)

    I like!....I have a thing for earrings like that..... :woot:

    I really want the original too if I can find em....I'm sure there's gotta be a style section of that issue of Maxim and wouldn't they say who its by? :huh:

    If not I might get 2 of the Urban ones and fix it up into longer chain and with more butterflies.

    I did call Maxim, but they were not very helpful. Hopefully, they will reply to me. The guy I talked to was gonna call the fashion people there who are supposed to e-mail me. The best thing to do is to print out the pix and bring it to a nice trendy local store in your area. I did that yesterday, and one store is looking into it. Hopefully one of us can find them and we can order a bunch! Whenever I buy a cheap knockoff, then I end up finding the original, so I end up spending money twice.

    I saw those exact same butterfly earrings while shopping today in the states. They had them at this store called Wet Seal. They were $10.50. Hope this helps!
