Gothic Jewelry: New Sensation for your Designer Clothes

Gothic jewelry is the new sensation in accessories to be paired with your favorite designer clothing. Also known as pagan jewelry, these accessories are made from many types of materials, but they are typically available in gold, sterling silver and pewter. They may come plain or be encrusted with jewels. Many pieces of gothic jewelry have their roots in esoteric sources, such as signs and symbols. Other pieces of gothic jewelry are timeless icons representing the eerie: coffin-shaped rings, heavily ornate cross brooches, earrings shaped like the heads of howling wolves.

Gothic inspired jewelery has hit the ground running! For the past couple of years celebrities have been sporting their skull and crossbones necklaces, Fleur-de-Lis charmed bracelets and Gallic cross rings. Now the look has gone main stream and many of these created by famous designer such as Polo Ralph Lauren, and these items are available everywhere. Gothic jewelry is easy to wear and can be used to dress up or dress down. They are easily available and the variety offered is endless. It is also popular among both the young and not-so-young.

Slave bracelets, also known as handflowers or maille bracelets, are also popular examples of gothic jewelry. These look like chain mail, or pieces of woven metal. They are different from conventional bracelets in that they are worn not just on the wrist, but on practically the whole hand, and their intricate patterns are sure to attract attention. Bib and choker necklaces are also popular gothic accessories. Catalogues of gothic jewelry oftentimes include so-called ‘poison’ rings or bracelets. These items have a small compartment where the wearer can presumably keep very small or fine materials, such as powder. Maille, chandelier or dangling earrings are also available to complete one’s overall look of mystery.

It does add a nice contrast to the ultra feminine styles being seen in today's fashion. Mixing a Gothic jewelery piece with a simple girly-girl look will make your style right on trend.
