Varieties of Gothic accessories
Goths use many accessories: fans, lace umbrellas, handbags and backpacks in the form of coffins, jewelry in the form of various types of crosses. The most common are Celtic and Christian crosses, jewelry made with bones, skulls, leather-trimmed and lace gloves, hats with a veil. Another popular Goth decoration is a silver ankh on a chain.
Gothic jewelry is always popular not only among fans of gloomy aesthetics, magicians and witches but also among stars and lovers of theme parties. And this is not surprising, because Gothic jewelry can favorably emphasize an individual style, give your appearance a mystery and pay attention to a sophisticated taste. Modern Gothic has changed.
Its attributes are crowns, crosses, shields, stained glass or emblems
Earlier, jewelry used large chains and large pendants, rings, belt buckles, and other elements. The rings were decorated with large gemstones and religious attributes, among which enamel jewelry was especially popular. Currently, we do not pay much attention to the mystical component of such jewelry, but in the Gothic style, it was of decisive importance. Gothic was also valued for pearls. The contrast of black lace and white pearls was especially luxurious.
Such decor uses in modern jewelry
The combination of modern trends and Gothic culture gave rise to a new style. In modern Gothic, silver, white gold and platinum are especially popular. White precious metals and a scattering of diamonds can create a contrast with the heaviness and gloom of stones, among which emeralds and rubies are especially common. This luxury is combined with skulls and large diamonds, which creates a feeling of familiarity with mystery and a sense of mysticism. Just as during the Middle Ages, jewelry and stones are often massive. Now Gothic jewelry makes of white metal, although the very top of the chic is natural silver.
Pendants, medallions, and earrings are usually large, with rather big semiprecious and precious stones. Sometimes Goths wear bracelets, belts, and studded collars. Esoteric and alchemical symbols, thorns and black roses, bats, crosses, ankhs and coffins, vampire themes, steampunk aesthetics, and witchcraft signs – each Gothic jewelry or accessory has its own mystical meaning, tells an elegant and scary story.
