Snakes in goth and alternative literature culture and fashion
In goth and alternative literature culture and fashion, the symbolism of the snake is universal. Snake-based imagery and gothic literature go hand-in-hand. Snakes have been a symbol of immortality from ancient Egypt, through the Mayan civilization and into modern times.
The gothic writer Ann Radcliffe (1764-1823) once owned a pet snake, not as goth paraphernalia, but because she lived in an old house that had snakes living in the walls of it.
More recently, some regard a 'snake' as a goth with pale skin. This has been further influenced by gothic literature and gothic fiction novels.
The goth writer and poet Oscar Wilde (1854-1900) was gothic writer Bram Stoker's (1847-1912) inspiration for literature's most famous gothic fiction character, Dracula. Oscar Wilde goths often wear a snake ring to serve as a reference to the pale Dracula.
Snakes are also common gothic fashion accessories. Gothic jewelry also commonly features blood-red garnets as depicted in our Garnet Birthstone Snake Ring. Garnet has the perfect dark red hue to bring the everyday a bit more mystery and beauty.
