Gothic Jewelry Necklaces - Elements of Gothic Style

If you are looking for jewelry that is unique and somewhat dark, but still pretty, you might want to think about purchasing Gothic jewelry necklaces. These are available in a wide range of different styles and types, to suit every taste that you may have. From sterling silver to gold or pewter, pendants and necklaces are available in a wide range of different materials. These may be decorated with lush details or ornate engravings. Jewel tones are often used to complement the basic black that is so frequently associated with Gothic culture, so that is another factor to look for when you are choosing the best necklace for your personal style.

Choker necklaces are a commonly seen type of Gothic jewelry necklaces. These have an eerie feel that gives a dark, almost slave-like appearance to the wearer, but they are also quite flattering. The chokers might have metal studs or spikes on them, and could have a leather base in many cases.

If you are looking for a more old-fashioned type of necklace, you could find chokers that are constructed out of delicate ribbon instead, or that come with small cameos. Lockets containing deceased relatives are somewhat morbid and Gothic but also pay tribute to your heritage or loved ones.
