Simple materials, great designers

Costume jewelry items are made of inexpensive materials, imitating real materials such as gold, pearls, gemstones, etc. Although there have always been “fake” jewels alongside the real thing, fashion jewelry really started to catch on at the beginning of the 20th century. Costume jewelry is made in relatively large quantities to suit the fashion of the moment – sometimes signed, sometimes not, but almost always very colorful and different.
A prominent place is reserved in the costume jewelry world for plastic materials, such as celluloid and bakelite, used to make colorful handmade fantastic creations.
