Sunday Steals: Elizabeth and James Polished Knuckle Ring for Pennies

Kitty cats, in the left corner we have Elizabeth and James’ perfect Polished Knuckle Ring; in the right corner we have Urban Outfitters’ sassy Smooth Knuckle Ring.

While the Urban Outfitters bauble is constructed out of mixed metal, in comparison to the 18K goldplated sterling silver which makes up the Elizabeth and James gem; for just $24.00, as opposed to the $225.00 required to make the enticing E&J piece yours, it is every bit as essential for the fashionista’s jewelry drawer – at a price that is simply irresistible!

What’s your bank account telling you to do, kittens? Will you be a big spender with Elizabeth and James, or play the role of the thrifty fashionista?


Fashionably yours!


Thanks to Saks Fifth Avenue and Urban Outfitters for the pictures.

Wow..so pretty..just not sure I'd have to have one since I have short fingers. But really such an interesting ring. I have a friend who has her mother's gold plated fingernail for her pinkie that she wore in the 80's. I dunno why it made me think of that.

That is a very cool price for this item.

♥ joei said...

☆ definitely, maybe ☆

Cool! Never seen these before!

la petite fashionista said...

great find! i love the statement a knuckle ring makes!

thebankofmylife said...

I'm not a fan of these rings, and I'm a fan of almost everything Elizabeth and James. If I had to choose, it would be the E&J splurge. Hope you're having a good Sunday.

Such an interesting find. I do like the 24 bucks price.

lucy and sarah said...

I have never seen one of these until now. Interesting.

Sarah said...

This is a great find Erika! Almost identical!

Chic Geek (Devs) said...

love the ring

Grace said...

Oooh, hard to argue with that price! And it does look just like the E&J one.

Nikolett said...

Ahh I thought that was some kind of weird shoe at first! Clearly need to clean my eyes out haha. I'm not the biggest ring-wearer so I'd go with the cheaper alternative :) Hope you've had an amazing weekend!

Couture Carrie said...

Love it, darling!
Amazing find!

They look exactly the same, so knock off! I'd probably feel a bit bad buying the cheapy o:

Large rings are my favourite things right now. I'm definitely picking the Elizabeth & James one: it looks more polished.

Haute World said...

Definitely the UO version! Unless it's something I"d wear every day (and in this case I wouldn't - I like switching my jewelry a lot), I'd probably save my pennies for something else :) Love both of these though!

Sweet Confessions said...

Love both of them!

I honestly can't decide. The E&J version feels more night-time so I'd want it because I think it'd add some interest to a really simple dinner look. The UO version is so everyday though. The sort of dull color means I'd feel ok wearing it everywhere, including to the pool.

Emily said...

UO has me smitten! plus there is such little difference between the two.

meg said...

I've never seen anything quite like this. Very unique. And wow, what a great price at $24!

Jennifer Fabulous said...

I'm not sure this ring would look good on me. I have tiny hands and fingers. Lol. But it's awesome regardless. UA never disappoints! :)

annoiii said...

Oh~ Thanks for that! I've always wanted that EJ knuckle ring!

Shooting Stars Mag said...

both look good to me. I'm not sure it's quite my thing either way, but a fun idea! :)

Pixie Drive-In said...

I love these rings! But I think even $24 might be a little pricey for just one ...

Josie said...

Perfect match -- what a stunning and luxurious-looking piece!

Mimi said...

CC said...

Why anyone would pay $225 for something as simple as that is beyond me, thrifty all the way for this one! :)
Xx

Krystal said...

that is quite the ring!

Purses Pastries Etc... said...

Great "for less" post, Erika! The only thing I'm wondering is whether the UO version might leave one's finger slightly... green?

Susu Paris Chic said...

Gold is so divine. Gold is glamour. Less is often more. Gold remains. Point.

Erin said...

I love MK's and Ashley's brands, great to see an affordable alternative! Great find!

Badette Consulting Blogger said...

Oh my goodness, when I saw the pic of those the first time, I thought they were major wedge heels! Ha!

But now that I see they're rings, I think they're actually 'pretty'. =)

Jessica said...

These are so close to each other that you'd be a fool to choose the more expensive version!

Lisa Lisa Lisa said...

Very nice! I'd go with the UO ring. You do such an amazing job of finding these. Love it!

Midnight Cowgirl said...

I've been wanting that ring from Elizabeth and James. Thanks for the cheap find!

Miss Caitlin S. said...

I'll take the cheap one! That ring is too trendy for me to want to spend more than that anyway. So cute.

The Owl's Closet said...

Definitely, thrifty fashionista:) Hope you had a great weekend!

I like jewels,but I'm only wearing a simple cross for protection. I was thinking of something to wear all the time and I just found the answer with this post.
