Sterling Silver Gothic Jewelry - Popular Themes and Gothic Designs

Several decades ago, it may have been easy to dismiss Gothic fashion as a mere fad that should have ended with the 1980’s. However, it has actually grown and become more prevalent in society than ever before. Gothic fashion is all about connecting with the dark side, mysterious and brooding, and can even be elegant or sexy. If you are unwilling to go the whole nine yards, with a velvet cape and full pan makeup on your face, then you can still experience the fun parts of this subculture by donning sterling silver Gothic jewelry.

Of course, sterling silver Gothic jewelry is also an essential part of anyone’s wardrobe who is truly dedicated to this type of lifestyle, so that is something to take into consideration. There are a number of different themes that could be incorporated into the jewelry under the umbrella of being Gothic. That includes any symbolism that is associated with black magic or death, including spider webs, pentacles, Gothic cross necklaces, or skulls and bones. Ravens are a popular symbol that might also be seen, or even hearts if they are sufficiently decorated with ornate detail.
