Sunday Steals: Elizabeth and James Feather Across the Hand Ring on a Budget

My loves, to your left please savor the stunning style that is the Elizabeth and James Feather Across the Hand Ring – the very same one seen decorating the dainty digits of one Ms. Mary-Kate Olsen; to your right allow your eyes to fall upon ASOS’ Double Finger Metal Feather Ring.

While the ambrosial ASOS piece is available only in gold, as opposed to the burnished silver hue of the Elizabeth and James original; for just $13.79, in comparison to the $150.00 price tag of the Elizabeth and James gem, it provides one’s accessory drawer with a splash of high fashion frippery – on a frugalista’s budget!

Which role have you decided to undertake on this sultry Sunday, kittens? Tightwad or spendthrift?


Fashionably yours!


Thanks to Shopbop and ASOS for the pictures.

I don't think I'm a fan of these rings..I would feel like my fingers were in bondage..:>)

Andhari said...

I gotta say the Elizabeth and James one is amazing! As in, real amazing. I think it's ok to splurge on this one?

Dancing Branflake said...

I seriously hate the idea of having two fingers stuck together BUT knowing that Mary Kate has one makes mee think I should also. I love her style!

Joanne said...

I haven't seen these before, what an interesting look. I'd buy the less expensive one, to try out the look and feel first.

Krysten @ After 'I Do' said...

Oh I love the E&J one!

Claire Kiefer said...

I really like these. I haven't ever tried one on, and have always wondered if I could handle having my fingers bound together, but man are they pretty. This leaf especially!

Chic 'n Cheap Living said...

Unexpected but cool. I prefer the more subtle glow of the Elizabeth and James ring though!

Tяainwяeck Tяagedy said...

I have to say that I'm actually loving the silver of the Elizabeth & James. I think it might be OK to splurge on this one. Good jewelry should always be an investment. Someday it could be worth tons. :)

ellie said...

This is so pretty. I love it for this time of year.
I so thank you reading my work. I do so appreciate it. I'm about to embark on a 30 day novel exercise..and decided to do it with my "derrick" character. Hopefully, he'll be an interesting character to work with. I hope, anyway.. So the best way I can keep up with it..is to possibly start it in a blog. It'll mainly be for my purpose..but just one more blog to add..I suppose. I'm excited yet uneasy. I have my doubts I can write that many words at Nanonovel. But thats not really going to be on my mind. Just the characters.

I actually prefer the asos one, I might have to treat myself!

Natasha H. said...

Just because of the sheer fact that I need something from Elizabeth and James, I would definitely get that ring. Happy Halloween, Erika.

Couture Carrie said...

Oooooh another fab find, darling!
Thanks and happy Sunday!

I actually like the gold ASOS one better. Gold is more a bit more Fall maybe.. I just like it better.
And for 14 bucks, it is def in my budget!

Style, She Wrote said...

Great find! I would totally go for the steal -- and use the savings to buy some more clothes!

Sarah said...

I love Elizabeth and James,but I have to save on this one!

FASHION SNAG said...

I love the gold one! I think it is so much prettier not to mention cheaper.

chaoskontrolowany said...

Amazing!

AH said...

spendthrift! i love the elizabeth and james one!

Elisa @ Globetrotting in Heels said...

I love them both!! and I am going through a slight feather obsession, so this ring is right up my alley :-)

Clare said...

I have got to get my hands on one of these rings... literally. All of my coworkers wear them! They are gorgeous!

ivy's closet said...

Honestly, I had never seen anything quite like this. Way cool. And I love that cheaper priced version too.

lucy and sarah said...

Very pretty, and great for this time of year. Cool price too!

better days said...

What a cool ring. I wonder how long I could wear something like that. Maybe I should try at that cool cheap price option.

Joanne Faith said...

The Elizabeth and James one is so much prettier IMO... perhaps its just the photogrpah, but the detail is far more stunning!

Panda! said...

I like the Elizabeth one more but not for more than even 100 dollars... and the asos one doesn't look so good, at least not in the picture...

MarchMusings said...

Haven't yet tried a connector ring yet but if I do I'll wait for a silver version of ASOS's ring. I'm not too keen on the shiny gold version.

Nikolett said...

Ahh, such a toughie! The $13.79 pricetag is calling my name, but I've always been more partial to silver than gold, so I guess I'd have to be the spendthrift!

Hope you've had a great last weekend of October! :)

Style Eyes said...

Unusual for me to go for the more expensive one but I prefer the silver one. I always think you get your moneys worth with jewellery.

Fastest way to Lose Weight said...

Awesome! both are looking preety but I don't like finger ring too long, I will love to buy something different that.

Nancie said...

i prefer the asos one, i wouldnt spend so much money on a ring!! http://www.fashionablenotebook.blogspot.com

Sherin said...

I do love statement rings, and both are so pretty. I think I may have to choose ASOS.

Leia said...

I prefer the asos version! I really want a two-finger ring.

FashionJazz said...

I adore this ring hun! I like them both, but the Elizabeth and James is my favourite! Hope you had a good wknd xx

Keith said...

I would have to be saving. Hope you had a great weekend. Take care.

Elle said...

Sighh I love them both but the Elizabeth and James version is just perfect!

Jaime @ La vie...J'aime said...

Nice- ASOS has so much good stuff.

Hope you had a great Halloween!

Meream said...

The gold one, most definitely! It's a bonus that my skin color looks better with gold bling. Haha

Cheryl: Oh to Be a Muse said...

Ebony said...

I'd go for the ASOS version, but only because I like the idea of a gold finger ring. I'd feel like Slick Rick and other 80's rappers.

Georgiana Wednesday said...

REALLY love the rings !!!

HAVE TO HAVE THEM !!!

Krissy said...

Two fingered rings are all the rage. Closet Deep absolutely loves them. We've seen them all over Hollywood on stars like Nicole Richie and AnnaLynne McCord. Love it!

Grace said...

I'm pretty sure I've seen that at Forever 21, too! Cute look; I don't really like gold jewelry, though.

Islandia Lane said...

ooh so love this ring! I would go for the E&J piece though only b/c I have one of their necklaces & I adore it!

Kristin said...

I think the E&J ring has me this time!

Krystal said...

that is a CUUUTE ring!

Emily said...

well, this is a no brainer in my opinion...ASOS has got this one for me :)

Elizabeth. It just looks more realistic, and much more delicate (in a good way).
