While there is a lot of jewellery with pretty, coloured stones and charming designs, those with a darker side need not despair as I have chosen some suitably creepy jewellery for the Goth in you. Lydia Corteille, the Parisian queen of dark and enchanting jewels, clusters antique scarab beetle amulets, a black diamond snake and garnet-set ivy leaves around a skull to create a fascinatingly macabre and beautiful death scene. Around her onyx cross is entwined with a baroque-style garnet-set rose in full bloom. Boucheron prefers creatures of the night rather than cute fairies and one of its long standing favourites is the venom fanged serpent that slithers over fingers and winds around necks. Garrard's feathered wings shimmer with jet black diamonds and are more raven than angel. Stephen Webster goes to the bottom of the sea to find snapping jaws and bony crab claws waiting to grab you from the dark. Theo Fennell suggests rhodium blackened white gold crucifixes and cross earrings for the nun gone-bad look. Londoner  Shaun Leane is not afraid to tackle thorny issues and his eagle claw bracelet looks beautiful and scary, in equal measures while his Hook earrings look sharp enough to rip through flesh. Sevan Bikakci, from Istanbul makes the axe an object of beauty, though it looks fit to lop off heads. The Cunning Mr Fox with goulish purple eyes and jaws ready to crack bones graces a Jessica McCormack ring. Another ring by this rising star shows the green eye of envy, all spikes and glittering diamonds.
