From ancient civilisations to high-end fashion shows of today and everything in between, the right piece of jewellery gives the wearer the ability to express themselves in a way no words can.
If you’re an “alternative”, whether that’s emo, hipster, goth, or whatever label society may put on you, there’s no better way to express yourself than through alternative jewellery.
What is alternative jewellery?
Alternative jewellery is any piece of jewellery that doesn’t conform to the “norm”.
The best thing about alternative jewellery is that it covers a wide range of styles, designs, and meanings. In fact, although often inspired by periods, styles, and movements, there are no limits.
From epic gothic pieces and vintage or kitsch designs to punk-inspired designs, the list goes on. Alternative fashion is more about you and expressing who you are than the jewellery itself.
It’s hard to put into words what it means on a deeper level. We know that no two alternative fashion lovers are the same.
Which is why you’ll find a wide range of styles and statements here at Brocarde. We put an emphasis on the unique while enabling the person wearing our jewellery to make a bold statement to the world.
For us, it’s important to combine quality, with all these unique and expressive elements.
Why is alternative jewellery important?
Jewellery has always been an important part of human culture, and today it’s more important than ever – especially alternative jewellery.
There is no better way to accessorise and complete an outfit or express yourself than through the right jewellery.
Living an alternative lifestyle runs deeper than just what you portray. It’s a way of life, it’s your beliefs, it’s who you are.
And one of the few ways you’re able to communicate this is through your choice of jewellery.
So, what’s the right jewellery for you?
There is no one right answer to this question. Everyone is unique, as are their ideals, views, and beliefs.
One thing you will find in the Brocarde range, however, are bold, in your face statements. Our goal is to provide a range of unique, expressive pieces of jewellery.
If you want to see what I mean, just check out our “Fuck Off” or “Pussy Power” necklaces. Is there a better way to express either of these feelings or views while wearing a classy piece of alternative jewellery?
We don’t think so.
What does jewellery say about you?
It’s no secret that your choice of jewellery says a lot about your personality, beliefs, and who you are.
Traditional jewellery is a lot more limited than alternative jewellery. There are set items and certain rules to adhere to.
With alternative designs, there’s no limits or constraints. You already know what it’s like to live outside of the “normal” rules, so why not express yourself in a way that explains to the world who you are.
That’s what we love about alternative pieces of jewellery. The creative freedom and honestly of the pieces.
Not only does this mean you have a lot more to choose from. You also have a lot more room for expression, which is something that we value when we design our own jewellery.
