Costume Jewellery

Costume jewellery (also called fashion jewellery) is jewellery manufactured as ornamentation to complement a particular fashionable costume or garment. Costume jewellery came into being in as a cheap, disposable accessory meant to be worn with a specific outfit. It was intended to be fashionable for a short period of time, outdate itself, and then be repurchased to fit with a new outfit or new fashion style. Its main use is in fashion, as opposed to “real” (fine) jewellery which may be regarded primarily as collectibles, keepsakes, or investments. Costume jewellery is made of less valuable materials including base metals, glass, plastic, and synthetic stones.
