Our Story

Hello Darkling!

Welcome to my humble boutique, how do you do? 

Darkling Beloved is a small UK-based alternative jewellery outlet that was established in 2015 and is run by one woman- that’s me, Paige. I’m in the region of 3000 (yes, three THOUSAND) years old, I live with my husband and our fur goblin, Vivi. 

Growing up, I was always captivated by costumes from films and media, mostly jewellery pieces. If I recall correctly, the first piece that really struck me was the medallion in, ‘The Little Vampire’. It wasn’t until I was an adult that I realised I had a particular fondness for trinkets, so I decided to create articles of my own. 

Very quickly, Darkling Beloved was picking up speed and I’m so grateful to say that I was shipping various pieces crafted with such love and passion to countries in all corners of the world. 

Over the years, the style of items I’ve created have changed- such is the case with most artisans, but have always remained under the ‘alternative’ umbrella. To begin with, I catered to those who shared a love for all things Halloween. As I progressed and gained more confidence in my abilities, I delved into bringing more ideas to life that were outside my comfort zone. Through this, the ‘Vampyre’ Collection was born, as was the ‘Enchanted’ Collection and the ‘Ritual’ Collection.

Each of these collections were birthed by different sources of inspiration, from Vampires and Witches to Elves and Faeries. I draw a lot of inspiration from characters, as well as films, shows, D&D and video games. I’m very much a huge admirer of all things fantasy and adore sharing that love with others through the means of jewellery.

As of today, 20th August 2023, I feel incredibly lucky for the support I’ve received over the years and I couldn’t be more grateful. It’s with great thanks to you all that I can continue to create, without your support, I wouldn’t still be doing what I love.

Once more, I welcome you and I thank you for taking the time to visiting my shop.

Spooky regards,


The Countess Weirdo at Darkling Beloved
