"A lot of people get one like that and then go out and pick the real one together," one shopper said on Facebook.

Another fan said: "I will take my 8 year old son to get one for his girlfriend, he proposed in the school playground the other day with a pretzel, I think she would prefer one of these!"

Someone else commented that it was worth paying £1 "just for the box".

But another person joked: "Is it a real diamond?" and one tagged a friend in the post, adding "save yourself a few quid".

It first launched the Bling Ring range in 2019 and it sparked a debate on social media.
