Alchemy Gothic Elizabethan Ring

If you're a frequent reader of this blog you'll know of my love for jewellery. I posted here about my Alchemy Gothic collection so far, and the other day I decided that it was time to add to it. I orginally bought La Fleur de Baudelaire from The Gothic Shop, but it was far too big for my neck (although it was very beautiful) so I decided to look for some other pieces instead.


I ordered from GlitterGoth this time, which is a first for me. They've always been on my radar so to speak, but for some reason I have never previously ordered from them. I was also pleased to see that they had a wishlist feature which now already has 31 things on it (you know, in case I win the lottery in the near future). I ordered The Reliquary Heart Locket (I will review this in a separate post) and the Elizabethan Ring. I ordered these in the morning, and they were on my doormat the morning after. Very fast postage, which is very impressive and wonderful since I'm always so impatient and excited when I order jewellery!

I've never actually bought a ring before besides adjustable ones that I've put together myself. I ordered this ring in size L, which is XX Small. I have teeny fingers, I was really hoping that it would fit me as I usually really struggle. On the photos of this on my hand, I'm wearing it on my left hand. I bought it for my right hand as my fingers are a little larger, so it doesn't fit my left hand at all. I'm wearing it there because I can't take photographs with my left hand! It is still a teeny bit big, but it's not uncomfortable and isn't that large that it falls off.

Nail polish is Rebel by MAC.

Isn't it beautiful? I love more intricate pieces and this is perfect. The crystal in the middle is a little large for what I would usually go for, but I love it! It definitely stands out. It feels very sturdy and I love the elegant feel to it. It's not light but not overly heavy either, and sits well on my finger. It's a little expensive, I bought it for £17.98, but I think it's worth it. I honestly can't see me taking this off. I'll definitely be looking into getting more Alchemy Gothic rings, I have my eye on this beauty for a start!

There's also a gorgeous matching bracelet to this, but sadly my wrists are far too thin for it to fit.

This ring was £17.98 (usually £19.99) from GlitterGoth.

Do you have any Alchemy Gothic pieces?

*unrelated note*

I mentioned changing the blog name in my last post, and I'm still undecided! Does anybody have any thoughts on whether or not I should keep/change it? I'm debating putting up a poll, good idea or not? Thoughts would be appreciated!

Disclosure: I bought this ring myself.

  3. So pretty! I love unusual jewellery, this is lovely.
    It's up to you if you want to change your blog name, I think it's lovely as it is but if you're 100% happy with it then go for it! I'm changing mine soon - the one I have was supposed to be temporary haha. xoxo

    1. Me too, I get so many comments about the other pieces I have, they're beautiful!

      I think that if I was 100% happy with it I wouldn't even question and it would 'feel' right if you know what I mean? I'm leaning towards changing it, but I'm a little worried about changing the url and whatnot in case it makes GFC go crazy. What are you thinking of changing yours to? :)

  4. Such a beautiful ring and they have captured the gothic side of the Edwardian era really well! I hate buying rings! They are always too big or too small.. it's a vicious circle! Adjustable rings are the way to go! I've just changed my name as you may know, it was no big deal, the only thing is people have to get used to knowing your blog by a different name! After a while it will all sink in and everyone will get used to it though.. I hope! xxx

    1. It really is beautiful, I love it! I know, I measure myself before I buy anything and it's still impossible to find something that fits perfectly. I'm pretty sure my ring size doesn't actually exist, haha! I love your new blog name by the way!

  5. I am so glad you made this entry. I have been eyeballing the Elizabethan Ring for a good while, but finally decided to make a purchase. Reading your review and being able to actually see it on a human being (and not a model or the stock image) pushed me over the edge. Now I can't wait to get it in the mail.

    1. I'm so glad that I could help! It is such a beautiful ring, I'm so pleased that you've ordered it! I always prefer to see jewellery on somebody too, with stock images you can never see what it actually looks like and how it sits. Let me know what you think to it when you get it in the mail!

    2. I most certainly will do! I already own a couple Alchemy pieces (Pope Alexander's Poison Casket Ring & Matins Cross Pendant/Necklace) but this particular ring has been "stalking" me for a very long time. I like that it's still stylish without being completely massive. What this ring lacks in size, it appears to make up for in style.

    3. I received my ring in the mail today (after having to return one earlier this week that had a crooked stone). It really is a beautiful piece. Your pictures really do it justice.

    4. It's a shame that you had to return one, but I'm glad you like it! It is a lovely piece.

    5. I have already bought an alchemy gothic ring but I have tiny fingers too and I don't know if I have bought the right size... most of the rings that I have are 17mm and they are too big but others are 16 and they are small, I don't know my correct size!! Can you tell me the measures of your alchemy gothic rings? thanks^^ this one is really beautiful and medieval, I really like it but I bought the absinthe dark fairy (I don't know if that is the name). It is a big green swarovski with two fairies^^ I will write a review on my blog about it

      thanks^^
