you have to check whether the theme is for the specified OS version installed in your Curve 8520. if it's not, it will not be installed successfully.

You can put themes in the BB 8520.
I already tried and made it successful.

Here is how:
Open the Media application on the blackberry
Press the left button next to the trackpad
Click explore
Track down to Device Memory or media card(wherever folder you saved the theme in)
Press the left button next to the trackpad
Click Open
Track down to your Folder
Press the right button next to the trackpad
Click Open
Select the JAD file
Select "Download"
The Application will load on to your Blackberry and is now available in your themes section.

Hope this helps. :-)
