1990s Gothic Punk Jewellery Rebelion

On listing this Punky Gothic Pewter CND Brooch the other day in our Gothic Jewellery selection. It reminded me of the Punk jewellery of the 1990s. It was not just a spiked and safety pin look that emerged in the nineties but a more grungy "save the world" look as well. This CND or Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament symbol and the female symbol above were very popular in this era.


 It would have been worn with a lapel of a military style jacket and Doc Martin boots. Maybe a little spiked or short cropped hair and black leggings under an oversize shirt or T-shirt.


Pewter brooches like this are still very wearable as well as collectible. Just becoming inexpensive vintage and still have that grungy punky image.
