By: Jane Anani

We now live an age where it is more and more difficult to retain a sense and appearance of individuality. Do you crave to stand out from the crowd and let your own personality shine through? Do you feel hemmed in by what others consider 'cool'. Could your answer be to go Gothic? Sometimes by visiting the past one can discover and re-invent a whole new forgotten World. That's where choosing gothic jewellery can help you to jump out of the box and become you. You don't have to be one of the crowd anymore.
Gothic jewelry takes us back to a medieval age where people aspired to look mysterious, unorthodox, and occasionally even wild. There were no boundaries or rules, no-one to impose their opinion of what style should be or to brainwash you with what was supposedly 'in fashion'. If you look at gothic jewelry collections of bracelets, bangles, black pendants, black necklaces and pandora style charms they shout out 'individuality'.
Using stainless steel, sterling silver and leather as a base and then adding personalized engravings, intricate designs, stones and beads, they will accentuate how you want others to see you as a person. The Gothic style also makes the pieces extremely tactile, you will often find yourself feeling the jewelry and others will be unable to resist a closer look or even a touch.
Gothic jewelry is all about highlighting your character and personality, amplifying your physical attributes. When you pick a piece of gothic jewelry think about the color of your eyes, hair and skin, what will work for you? Do you suit large or small pieces of jewelry? Don't forget, the object of Gothic jewelry is to ensure you feel attractive, different, stylish, confident and individual. Get away to the wild side of your personality. There aren't any rules, you can wear it with anything, you can wear it anytime, and you can even find new ways of wearing it. Who says a necklace has to be worn around the neck or a bracelet around the wrist. Be adventurous, be Gothic.
Take a moment and look back at pictures of the Gothic period and you will perhaps uncover totally new ideas of how to wear jewelry. Often people think it was all about darkness and doom, it wasn't at all. It was an exciting period when individuals wore whatever they wanted, the individual ruled. At times Gothic Jewelry was another option to being fully clothed, a decoration to adorn areas of bare skin, to exaggerate and show off your best features, gorgeous hair, necks, arms, legs, hands, feet, ankles, wrists, eyes, facial features. Remember Gothic means no rules, it's your body, your personality, you make the decison of what you want to be at all times.
By using various pieces of gothic jewelry you are not restricted to one look, experiment with different items. Whatever you are wearing - bikini, trunks, jeans, t-shirt, evening dress, business suit, uniform - there is a piece of Gothic jewelry that will make you stand apart from others. It doesn't even have to be so obvious, but people will notice there is something unusual about you and wonder why?
