The range also includes a dress necklace and shoe charm (at a much cheaper price!)

Buy it from for £242.

Kitson Ename Engraved Slogan Ring from

It's been a bit quiet on Bling and Buy due to some busy things going on elsewhere. The highlight has been that DorkAdore, a blog dedicated to all things dorky and gadgety that I write regularly for, has been shortlisted for a Cosmopolitan Blog Award in the tech gadget section! If you'd like to vote for us, you can do so on the Cosmo website.

Following on with the dorky theme, I spotted this comic book-inspired gold ring above from designer label Kitson on for £12.  There's a matching necklace too for £15.

Dare you to wear them without making the sound effect noises.

Are you a dork?

Bird Stack Ring from Cherry & Joy

Sterling Silver Fox and Forest Studs by Joannarutter (and Etsy lists in £s!)

It's finally happened! Handmade supermarket has finally started to list its products in pounds as well as dollars. This can only mean bad things for my bank account, but imagine the time you'll save without constantly checking the exchange rates.

Browsing this morning, I came across these tiny fox and forest stud earrings from Joannerutter. These charming little cutouts remind me of the fairytale Little Red Riding Hood. Who doesn't love a silver fox, eh?

According to the new listing, it'll set you back £32.30.

Have you seen any gems on Etsy recently?

Sterling Silver Butterfly Bangle from Akino Jewellery

It's been a little while since Bling and Buy was last updated, due to a few other work commitments, but I've still been keeping an eye out for beautiful jewellery pieces. This butterfly bangle above caught my eye late last week. It's a delicate butterfly design from Folksy-based Akino Jewellery. The Japanese designer creates each piece by hand, so you might want to allow a couple of weeks delivery, but I think it's worth it for such a unique piece.

Like it? It's yours for 80 of your English pounds.

Do you think it's worth paying a little more for a handmade design?

Sweet stackable rings

Do you remember the stackable rings we featured back in May from Ernest Jones? It seems they're not the only retailer to embrace the mix and match style.

Folksy designer Chris Parry has created a range of personalised rings and silver accessories that feature fingerprints or famous sayings. The rings above (£40) are displayed with a whimsical poem, but you can have them printed with whatever takes your desire. Which might make a nice engagement and wedding ring set for a couple.

DaWanda seller Inmost_light offers these stackable rings that feature tiny dangling charms. Snap them up for 7 Euros each.

ASOS offer a cheap and cheerful version of the trend with these stackable flower rings, £8. Click on the image to be taken directly to the shop.

What kind of stackable rings would you like to see?

ASOS Twisted Twilight Mix And Match Stud Set

Who's off to see Twilight this weekend? I've got tickets for one of the early screenings, and I don't mind admitting that I'm really, really, really excited.

What better way of celebrating the release of the latest Twilight film then with some vampire-inspired earrings. These mixed studs from ASOS (£8) have a gothic theme, so you've got the spider webs, crosses and skulls of sterotypical vampires, along with a gorgeous chandelier stud. If anyone from ASOS is reading this, please make the chandelier studs in a pair!

What do you think about the Twilight films? Like the gothic style?

DIY: Jewellery charms on DaWanda

If you're not familiar with DaWanda, it's a European online marketplace, similar to the concepts of Etsy and Folksy. It's a really nicely designed site, and I found myself having a good browse of the section for jewellery supplies. If you fancy making your own jewellery, you might like some of these pieces:

The wishing well silver charms above are from a seller called TheSecretGarden, priced at 0.99 € each.

Martini Glass charms from Nicoledebruin, priced at 1.60 € per pair.

Antique Silver Rose Flower Pendant from FindingSupplies, priced at 2.00 €

There's a huge amount of choice, so it's worth a browse for any budding designers.

Chavtastic necklace from Lily Butterfly

Featuring Lily Butterfly on Bling and Buy has been on my To Do list for a while now. I've been chatting with Jo from Lily Butterfly on Twitter for a few weeks, and she's really passionate about jewellery. So much so that she has her own range of jewellery.

The Chavtastic necklace above features a $old plaque, dollar sign and pastel coloured flower.

It's a tongue-in-cheek look at bling jewellery and the chav culture, much like Bling and Buy itself, so it's the perfect match!

The Chavtastic necklace is £7.99. Would you wear it?
