mini cross rings



ring: shop llymlrs 
cardigan: yayer

A few weeks ago I decided that I wanted to start my own little online shop! I always find it hard to find reasonably priced and stylish rings on the highstreet. So after a little conversation with Victoria I decided I was going to give this jewellery selling a go again. I used to have a myspace jewellery business when I was 16, Selling those hideous oversized plastic diamonds, knuckle dusters and ribcage necklaces! The shop doesnt have a name, I'm rubbish with naming things so its just Shop LLYMLRS for the moment. But I will get my thinking cap on and try and think of a proper "brand" name! The basic plan at the moment is to just stock rings (because they are my favourite type of jewellery!) and keep it as resonably priced and on trend! and by on trend I pretty much mean "stuff that I like"!

These cross rings are smaller than the infamous Asos/Forever 21 ones! But they are size adjustable so those with smaller/bigger fingers can adjust accordingly. They cost £6 and then P&P depending where you live in the world! I ship worldwide! Also I'm still sourcing new items for the shop, so if you have any ideas about the types of rings you like leave it in the comments and I'll see what I can do. I've got these lush oversized turquoise stone rings on the way which I cant wait to show you!

EDIT: All the rings sold out within the first 24 hours. Im so overwhelmed with the response and Im really sorry if you've missed out. Im leaving the item up in the shop for PRE ORDER. Which basically means when the items come into stock I will ship them. It should take 7-10 days for a restock though. I will try and keep stock levels regular, but like I said, I didnt expect so much so quickly!

PS.  DISCLAIMER: I wont be bombarding you with posts about my own jewellery. I am happy and proud of what I'm doing but I'm not gonna shove a brand down your throat, even if it is my own label!

  2. I think it's a lovely idea, it's about time there was somewhere with on trend rings at reasonable prices. I've been wanting a big turqouise stone ring for a while so hopefully this will be the one!

  3. Ah this is such a good idea! I went shopping today to find some decent jewellery and i was shocked at how much some stuff it. Especially topshop jewellery! Been wanting a cross ring! I may have to stop by your shop xo

  4. Cool, I wish you good luck for your little business! I have an own little online shop too and it's so much fun to sell only stuff that you like yourself, kind of a relief from the mass trends ;)
    Hm concerning rings I love everything that includes flower or bird motives :)

  5. Oh gosh, I've been coveting your cross ring for so long and haven't been able to find one I like as much! You have no idea how excited I am! So happy you ship to the States too!

  9. I was just searching on ebay for these perfect rings! And the turquoise ones, which I'm very curious about. I also like the rings with the skulls and the ring with the snakes :). And the claw bracelet!

  11. they are so mini and cute! I love them. I think the ASOS ones were too big, so these are just perfect!

  12. i'd definitely buy one, but adjustable ones fall apart so easily :( they're really lovely, though

    ReplyDelete
  13. Such a good idea! So pleased you're doing this.
    Loved your cross ring you featured in an older post, so glad this is your first one! And that it's adjustable, great for my stubby fingers!
    Can't wait to see what you'll have in the future! The turquoise stone sounds beautiful

  27. This is a great idea - I love the cross ring and would definitely buy one if I didn't already have one!
    I'd like to see more 'rock & roll' style rings if you know what I mean - LOADS of people do girly, vintage inspired jewellery which isn't really my thing... I love the kind of stuff Galibardy do but that's a bit too expensive for me. So my vote for things I'd like to see in your shop = skulls, animals, armour rings etc! xx

    ReplyDelete
  28. Ooo that ring is a must have right now, everyone seems to have one :)
    Can't wait to see this turquoise one, I have been wanting one for agesss!

  31. Love the fact your doing this! I also have so much trouble finding rings that are low prices but still stylish. There are so many shops which seem to take the piss charging however much for something that should cost £5! I would love to see more affordable versions of the FASHIONOLOGY.NL rings, which I absolutely adore but yet cannot seem to find affordable versions of them! 8a83.blogspot.com xx

  32. Such a great idea, good luck :) I thought about doing something like this years ago, but I just didn't know how to go about it

  38. I love your blog. You're such a pretty lady. Can't wait for your cross rings to be restocked and I'm also curious about the turquoise stone rings!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Love the crosses!
    I have three kinds of rings I'm looking for right now
    1. Double chain rings (two thin plain silver rings, one for the bottom of the finger and one for the top, with a chain to connect it. Rumi Neely just designed a cute one)
    2. Plain thin band rings with a small stone (for example green)
    3. Scull rings(like Alexander McQueen's gorgeous ones)

    Thanks again!

  40. That's so cool you are opening your own shop. I hope it does well! It seems like your off to a great start.

  41. I really like that these are not just ajustable to your finger sizes, but that they're a bit smaller than your average cross ring that you come across in stores! So yes, I truly love these! I tried to do the pre-order and it froze on me and didn't work. I tweeted you about it but I'm sure you get a bajillion tweets a day so I figured I'd let you know in two different places. Awesome idea though, I'll totally be placing an order as soon as more are shipped to you!

  54. Glad to hear you are setting up a shop Lily why not hun, you have great taste so I think you will do well :) I have a cross ring from ASOS but it's too big, so adjustable sounds great. Once I have some money will pre order, but I bet you will have sold out again :P
    Anyway glad you got the Topshop white jumper, and how sweet of that girl to track it down for you see blooging world can have some great karma too. Makes a welcome change from the stupid haters, and looking forward to seeing the nail wraps xx

  59. oo I love the idea of having your own shop, I'm sure it will be fabulous! If I have any money left after my trip to London, I'll definitely be ordering. I love how the ring is adjustable too, I have giant hands & find it so hard to get rings, especially double finger ones!
