Gothic rings come in an enormous variety of themes and designs. From those designed for the finger, thumb rings, and armor rings that cover the entire finger. There are also somewhat controversial slave rings, which include a wrist band with a ring or rings extension.
Every type of Gothic symbol is included with the rings. There are the expected skull and skeletons as well as coffins, bats, spiders, studs, and other similar dark themes.
The detail of some many of these rings is outstanding, which include, in some cases, several elements, such as a skull and claw or cross and roman numerals. Somehow they work together great.
Some Gothic rings include color. There are purple coffins, blue angel eyes, and some turquoise added just to look different. Maybe the latter is a western Goth look;-).
When you add the ring or rings to some of the creative dark nails some Goths wear, there is a very compelling feel for the fascinating results.

- Gothic Makeup
Goth culture is impossible to identify specifically, because it has a focus on expressing oneself individually and uniiquely, rather than uniformly. That include gothic makeup, which is expressed in numerous ways, as you'll see here.
These are a couple of spider rings. They were included to show you can get a ring with the same design, but of different sizes, depending on your personal tastes. I like the smaller thumb spider ring better, but that big one would definitely attract a lot of attention.

Gothic Wolf Head Finger Ring
A controversial element of the Gothic subculture is the slave part of the lifestyle. It's not a reference to slavery as we know it, but a different type of relationship between people. Some of you may have seen photos of one Goth holding a chain, or what could be called a leash, connected to another. It isn't something acceptable to the general population.
Also controversial is what is called a slave bracelet, where you can see an example below. Outside of what it may represent in the eyes of some people, it is definitely a very nice looking design.
