Alchemy Gothic Aurum Mortis Ring

Are you all sick of these posts yet?! I actually wasn't going to blog about this one, but then it arrived and it was pretty and I couldn't not blog about it...I'm easily swayed.

I ordered this the same day that I published my Autumn Wishlist post, because I discovered that it had been discontinued. Not many places had my size left, so I ended up ordering it from Ebay. I think it cost around the £22 mark including postage but I'm not one hundred percent sure.



Aurum Mortis means 'Golden Death' in Latin. I think the name suits it well, it features a golden crystal above a tiny skull face, and also some dangling skull charms and a little pearl. The dangling skulls are my favourite part of this piece, even though I can never get them to sit right. They are particularly interesting as the skulls aren't identical. One has a narrower, more eroded face than the other one. I think it's a really nice touch, and makes it much more intriguing to look at! It also has some intricate detailing on the sides.


Like the majority of the pieces I own, the crystal really catches the light. It's a really unique piece, it won't be to everybody's taste, but I really like it.

My only issue with this ring is that it seems to be a tiny bit bigger than my Elizabethan Ring. This means that it will sometimes slip off and it's a bit too big for me. I'm contemplating getting one of those ring adjusters (like these) that you attach to the back of your ring to get a snug fit. I'm scared to wear it outside in case I lose it!

Have you all seen the new Alchemy Gothic pieces? I had a browse the other day (I sort of wish that I hadn't) and there's so many lovely new things! I think this one has moved to the top of my wishlist...

Disclosure: I bought this ring myself.

  1. Ooo I what a beautiful new ring! The little golden gem does make it perfect to wear in autumn and the little hanging skulls are just adorable! It's a very aged antique looking piece which just adds to its elegance!

    I got the new Alchemy Gothic catalogue through the post the other day but I've not had a chance to look at it yet! There will no doubt be a couple things that I will want to add to my Christmas list though! ~♥~

    1. I don't own any gold jewellery except for this, it's really pretty! The hanging skulls are so cute. I definitely need to buy something to make it fit me better though.

      Some of the new things are gorgeous! I'm in love with the choker that I linked, and the Marie Antoinette pieces look beautiful. I'm trying to be good and waiting for Christmas!

    1. It's beautiful, especially when the light catches it!

      Thank you, the nails are those press on ones that I posted about the other week! They're great, I want to go and get some more.

    2. You could get some more. Until your real nails grow so you don't have to wear those press on ones. :)

    3. I did have some left over, but my sister stole them! My nails broke again today, so I think I will have to! They're breaking all the time recently. :( The press on ones are so easy to use too.

  6. I had to comment this post, Omg that ring It's just breathtaking, although I've seen it before on photos i never saw how that stone looks like liquid fire, it's amazing, and that beautifull pearl just makes it so polish.(BTW it's looks amazing with that colour of nailpolish)

    Although i must say i don't like the new collection that much, it's too "pin-upish" I do love Alchemy and that piece you put on the top of your wishlist it's gorgeus

    1. Liquid fire is the perfect way to describe it! It glows in sunlight. It's such a shame that they've discontinued it!

      I agree, I'm not a fan of the pin-upish things they do (I'm not a huge fan of Steampunk either), but I love the choker I linked and the Tears of Grief necklace is beautiful as well!
