Hi friends! <3
This topic is a bit difficult for me. As a lolita who's been in the fashion for nine years, I've built up a fairly well-rounded wardrobe. Most of what I have is fairly interchangeable and goes with multiple things. I periodically review it to see what's missing and add items to my wishlist so I can search for them later.
After some thinking, I decided gothic accessories would be my topic, rings in particular!
Since acquiring multiple Moi Meme Moitie dresses over the past few years, I've noticed that gothic accessories are seriously lacking in my wardrobe. I've picked up things as I found them gradually; a veil, couple pairs of otks, bunch of cross necklaces, rectangular headdress, and a headband. But one kind of accessory has me stumped... rings. I have a lot of rings, but out of all the possible ones I could use, I believe they are more suited to sweet style (star, unicorn, rose, and bow shapes). I did get a couple rings from Automatic Honey that I thought would work, but they don't seem gothic enough.
Gothic rings tend to be bold type statement pieces. I would love to have a few to wear in black, silver, or white. And preferably not just crosses. I have seen some rings by Voodooodolly online and even purchased one recently, but failed to notice that it was framed in gold when silver would have been a better choice. I suppose I could always use non-lolita rings, but I don't think it looks quite the same.
Gothic lolitas, what do you do? Where are some good places to find gothic rings? I would love to hear your input, or if you are selling some inexpensive ones leave links below. Thanks!
