Gothic Product Information:
All our gothic jewelry is made of fine English pewter and are made in Sheffield, England by master craftsmen, who are members of The Worshipful Company of Pewterers. One advantage of these pewter items, is that they do not need regular polishing to maintain its gorgeous appearance. Pewter jewelry does not tarnish like silver jewelry. To keep your gothic jewelry bright and shiny, an occasional cleaning with a quality proprietary metal polish will keep it looking brilliant.
The metal used in the manufacture of all Alchemy's pewter products is the highest grade, 92% tin alloy, (to BSS5140 standard), known as "English Pewter". Some manufacturers misleadingly use the term 'pewter' to describe alloys containing lead. This results in inferior, more easily made products which are heavier, softer and of a darker colour, and are much more prone to tarnishing and disfigurement. This WILL NOT happen with Alchemy Gothic jewelry.
The Westenra Choker
Worn by one Lucy Westenra, one of the infamous brides of Dracula in Bram Stoker’s novel, the Westenra Choker is a gorgeous item that the once-living wearer donned to hide the fang-marks on her neck, after she had been claimed by Dracula himself.
A floral jacquard ribbon encircles the neck closely, stylishly concealing the punctures beneath, securing an ornate choker in place at the front of the throat. Dominated by flowing, gothic patterns done in intricate detail, the choker is set with two vividly green crystals, above and below the section where the black band secures the pewter piece in place.
From the bottom of the pewter piece is a hanging, stylized piece reminiscent of a stake, set with a style obsidian crystal. Elegant and classy, this choker would be at home on any noble woman’s neck—be she recently bitten or not—and is equally suitable for form wear or everyday attire.
