Can a non-Christian get away with wearing a cross?

Is it tacky to wear a religious symbol for a religion to which you do not subscribe or endorse? I was shopping at Target today for necessities and fell in love with the cross below because of the pretty bling (I don't know why the scan came out partly blurry):

I wouldn't wear this on the street or as every day wear. I'm just way too Buddhist/Hindu/Sufi/Pagan/Taoist/etc. to promote a religion that implies worship of one individual or the idea of "evil" or guilt. I respect my friends that choose this religion, but it's definitely not for me. But I did fall in love with the cross. My thinking was that crosses are generally also gothic symbols and I would wear it only to goth clubs. But if I wore this to a goth club, would you mistake me for a Christian?
