Gothic jewellery: Embrace the dark side with grown-up goth jewels

Embrace your dark side this season with midnight-hued gemstones and diamond crosses

Disappear into the night with this season’s gothic jewellery, the perfect compliment to winter’s overtly witchy ensembles. Think diamond crosses, velvet chokers or inky gemstones to wear with Rodarte’s cobwebby lace confections or Valentino’s black woollen gowns and slashes of dramatic eyeliner. It’s all very Stevie Nicks meets The Craft, and after multiple seasons of yellow gold and rainbow-like jewels, it feels like a powerful palette cleanser.

Black Orchid Collection by Elhanati

Annoushka Ducas’ phantasmic collaboration with fashion’s reigning goth queen Susie Cave of The Vampire’s Wife, continues to delight with tiny charms shaped like fangs, weeping eyes and fading roses. Meanwhile, Stephen Webster and Ara Vartanian each deliver dark, daring gemstones sourced from all over the world, such as storm-coloured spinels or black diamonds set defiantly back-to-front. Then there’s the art historian-turned-jeweller Cece Fein Hughes, who breathes new life into totemic rock n’ roll tattoos (including snakes, skulls and arrow-pierced hearts) by engraving and then delicately enamelling them onto 18ct signet rings.
