Generally, those people who wear Gothic jewelry belong to a well-defined subculture. They possess a rather specific attitude and adorn their fingers with Gothic rings. They have adapted a quite narrow and undeviating way of thought.
That way of thought reflects their belief system—a system that views good and evil as forces that need to exist together. People who wear Gothic rings appreciate the contrast between good and evil, between black and white. Their rings tend to demonstrate their appreciation of those contrasting colors.
Many reasonably priced Gothic rings have been fashioned from pewter. Other cheap rings use stainless steel to mix black and white images. In each case, the pewter or stainless steel ring typically juxtaposes two images, one that is associated with good forces, and one that is associated with evil.
