Inspired by the night and otherworldly spirits, Gothic jewelry adds an elegant undertone to any outfit and even the coolest clothes look their best when topped off with the right accessories. Graceful finishing touches breathe life into boring every day clothes and can instantly upgrade any outfit from good to great.
In the 14th Century, Gothic jewelry was generally considered more stylish and elegant than the rounded Romanesque items available at the time. But these days the roles have been reversed and gothic jewelry is usually denser and heavier than the delicate items on display in the high-street. Gold and other yellow metals are generally not acceptable for goths because of their association with sun and daylight and silver is nearly always used instead, as the moon metal better reflects the style of the goth subculture. Goths also do not attach any significance to precious stones - other than how they look - although red is a popular colour because of its association with blood and vampires.
Children of the night will find everything that their hearts desire in the range of gothic clothing and accessories at EMP. Choose from a wide selection of silver rings, pendants, bracelets, watches, necklaces, earrings, nose rings and barbells. Many designs include Pentagrams or skulls and black and red are popular colours of course. Styles range from thin delicate leather straps to chunky chains and spikes, and religious and occult themes are common in the EMP Gothic Shop.
Memento Mori at EMP
In ancient times the skull denoted human sacrifice to bring about the death of an enemy and was associated with witchcraft and black magic. In modern Gothic interpretations, the skull symbolises memento mori - a reminder about death and the importance of living every day as if it is your last.
