Stefan Salvatore seems like such a wonderful boyfriend. He’s always rescuing his lady and her monster pals, he loses control (in a hot way) whenever someone he loves is in danger, he can bust out a move or two (as witnessed at the “Unpleasantville” decade dance), and he’s got a great set of hair. However, we have a major bone to pick with him—what’s up with him gifting Elena another girl’s necklace?! (Technically, he didn’t remember where he got it from but let’s view it from Elena’s perspective–because she isn’t aware of the whole “Klaus compelling Stefan” ordeal.)
In “The End of the Affair,” it was revealed that the vervain-soaked necklace Stefan gave to Elena in season 1 belongs to…dun dun dun… an Original! (More specifically, it belongs to Klaus’s sister Rebekah aka Stefan’s beautiful ex). Clearly, the heirloom necklace is one of Elena’s most prized possessions because she wears it with so much pride and she grows super upset whenever she loses it.
But if Mystic Fall’s brown-eyed doppelganger ever found out that the necklace actually belongs to Stefan’s ex-girlfriend and is basically recycled jewelry, would she shrug it off or feel betrayed? Vote below!
