Steampunk style has become very popular nowadays, and it has influenced music, art, literature, interior design, and many other aspects. Today we are going to review the best Steampunk style jewelry of 2022.
Steampunk jewelry reflects the culture and fashion of the Steampunk universe. Like other non-minimalist movements, Steampunk values beauty that represents unusual or even ancient ideals.
What is Steampunk fashion?
Before we talk about Steampunk jewelry, let's review what Steampunk fashion is. Although Steampunk is primarily a literary genre, it also has many codes. The Victorian era inspires Steampunk fashion. We can then find corsets and long skirts for women, and three-piece suits for men. Adding elements referring to machines is necessary to not fall into the total Victorian look and give a Steampunk look to an outfit. The most common accessories are goggles, gears, guns, pocket watches... and of course jewelry!
