What is artificial jewelry?

Originally, costume or fashion jewelry was made of inexpensive simulated gemstones, such as rhinestones or lucite, set in pewter, silver, nickel, or brass. During the depression years, rhinestones were even down-graded by some manufacturers to meet the cost of production.


The same glamorous effect of precious metals and jewels like gold, diamonds, emeralds, pearls etc. can be achieved without a huge expenditure of money. These artificial pieces are designed to imitate expensive styles, with similarly elaborate designs and intricate settings. The tremendous varieties available means you can purchase the latest trends for the upcoming season without worrying about the cost.


We're busting the myth that fine jewelry is should be reserved for special occasions: engagements, graduations, birthdays, etc. In reality it's also a great option for people who like to wear their jewelry 24/7 and don't want to worry about taking their jewels off when they sleep, shower or workout. Fine jewelry is always made with solid gold and typically features genuine stones. Rings in the fine jewelry category can be re-sized and repaired easily by any skilled jeweler. Fine jewelry requires less care than semi fine and fashion jewelry, but it also has a significantly higher price tag since gold is one of the most expensive metals on earth.  Since solid gold doesn’t turn or tarnish, it’s the longest lasting option.


Costume jewelry is considered a discrete category of fashion accessory and displays many characteristics of a self-contained industry. Costume jewelry manufacturers are located throughout the world, with a particular concentration in parts of China and India, where entire citywide and region-wide economies are dominated by the trade of these goods. There has been considerable controversy in the United States and elsewhere about the lack of regulations in the manufacture of such jewelry—these range from human rights issues surrounding the treatment of labor, to the use of manufacturing processes in which small, but potentially harmful, amounts of toxic metals are added during production. In 2010, the Associated Press released the story that toxic levels of the metal cadmium were found in children's jewelry. An Associated Press investigation found some pieces contained more than 80 percent of cadmium. The wider issues surrounding imports, exports, trade laws, and globalization also apply to the costume jewelry trade.


Stone studded necklaces come with glittering colorful crystals or stones in a range of rainbow hues like red, blue, pink, white, purple, green and orange. A great alternative to diamond jewelry are the artificial Austrian and American diamonds. Each of these has a unique set of advantages and looks just as real and attractive as real diamonds.


Costume jewelry has been part of the culture for almost 300 years. During the 18th century, jewelers began making pieces with inexpensive glass. In the 19th century, costume jewelry made of semi-precious material came into the market. Jewels made of semi-precious material were more affordable, and this affordability gave common people the chance to own costume jewelry.



You’ll also find stunning pearl jewelry pieces made of cultured or fake pearls, in an effusion of classy and ornate designs. Low-key pieces like pendants, bead necklaces and bracelets will add a dash of style to casual looks. Artificial jewelry designs include Indian motifs like fruits and flowers as well as western style Victorian cameos or simple beads.
