Costume Jewelry

Less expensive metals or base metals, plastic, glass and chunky stones are used to make costume jewelry. They are not very expensive but at the same time they are highly fashionable. Costume jewelry is mainly used for the sake of fashion and is usually not durable. Unlike gold or silver, which are an investment and are collectibles, costume jewelry is used only as long as the fashion lasts.

However costume jewelry is not an innovation of this age. The origin of costume jewelry dates back to the early 20th century when the term 'costume' meant dress or garment. Costume jewelry is usually worn to match a dress you are wearing at a time. It might be of similar colors or the design of the jewelry might be similar to your dress. Strings of big glass beads is also a very interesting costume jewelry worn largely by teenagers nowadays.

Ornamental belts and hair accessories are important and highly popular parts of costume jewelry. The famous fashion designer Coco Chanel used costume jewelry in her fashion shows to give a boost to the costume jewelry industry. Kenneth Jay Lane is very important costume jewelry designer. She designs jewelry for celebrities. Elizabeth Taylor, Jackie Onassis and Audrey Hepburn are some of her notable clients.

There can be all types of costume jewelry- bangles, bracelets, armlets, necklace, pendant, anklet and belts. The main reason behind the popularity of costume jewelry is that they are highly affordable, at the same time they are trendy. Costume jewelry is mainly popular among teenagers and collage going students. You can buy it with your saved pocket money. There is costume jewelry to match every kind of outfit, whether it is a single chain worn with a pair of jeans or a heavy necklace of artificial stones to match your traditional sari.

Costume jewelry is for anyone and everyone. If you do not want to burn a hole in your pocket but at the same time want to look fashionable then costume jewelry is the best option available to you.
