ebay purchases #1

Recently I've been discovering the wonders of eBay, mainly the jewellery part of it, as there's loads of stuff on there for only a few quid with free international shipping from China.
I thought that I could start a series, and there'll be a post every few months of the things I've accumulated.
If you decide to order anything that happens to be halfway around the world from you, chances are it'll take a few weeks to arrive so don't go ordering anything you need urgently!
Let's get this out of the way first before we move on to the good stuff, I snagged this perfume for £3 + £2 postage in an auction - this was very much a spur of the moment thing, as the auction ended in 10 minutes when I spotted it.
The fragrance in question is Paris Hilton Passport in South Beach 30ml Eau De Toilette, I could go on and list all the top notes and what-have-you but basically it's an unoffensive fruity floral.
Shipping was pretty fast from inside the UK and you can visit the seller's shop here. They're a new eBay shop and are trying to build up a reputation, so prices are starting pretty low.
The Scrabble ring on the left is adjustable, and every letter of the alphabet is available so you can get one with your initial on it, I love it because it's quirky and different, and a few celebrities the likes of Pixie Lott and Jessie J have been seen wearing it as well!
You can buy it here for £1.25 plus 90p postage from inside the UK.

One of my favourite pieces has to be the little crown ring at the top, isn't it the cutest thing ever? Unfortunately, I got this in an auction, but I'm pretty sure this is identical, and it's available in silver too!
Here's another adorable crown ring that's slightly different, also available in silver and gold. Both cost 99p with worldwide free postage, shipped from Hong Kong.

The main part of the photo has to be the owl necklace, the combination of the hinges holding the bronze body together and the massive eyes with the design around them help give it a vintage feel, and this looks amazing with a plain outfit like a white tee, blazer and skinny jeans, or just a tee and shorts for summer.
Amazing value for 99p with free international shipping from Hong Kong, here.

Another ring, and this one is a blinged-out skull with a little top hat on it, and like the Scrabble ring, it's adjustable so you don't need to worry if you have chubby fingers!
Again, it's 99p with free international shipping from Hong Kong, here (don't worry about the pictures, it is adjustable) and I've found a more feminine version, here. Not sure if that one's adjustable though.

Saving the best for last, the moustache necklace. I am all on board with the moustache trend, I just think it's adorable, and this necklace feeds my moustache fetish.
Ok, I'm starting to sound like a moustache-obsessed freak now. Anyway, same information as the last items, it's 99p including free postage worldwide from Hong Kong, here, and I really want this two-finger moustache ring too!

What's the best thing you've ever got from eBay?
