Costume jewelry or as we call it, “fashion jewelry,” are usually made from inexpensive materials such as sterling silver and brass, with wide range of sparkling factors like cubic zirconia stones, simulated pearls, and other semi-precious stones. Metals are coated with vermeil or rhodium to achieve that gold/platinum shine. These materials are more affordable compared with the prices of real diamonds, gold, and platinum metals. You don’t have to spend so much just to get that sparkling shine you want from your accessories.

It would be impractical to bring fine jewelry when you’re out of town or when you just want to look glamorous when out with your friends. Wearing your fine jewelry daily is risky because they can get damaged right away when used constantly without proper care. Having costume jewelry gives you the freedom to look chic and fabulous everyday. When going for a trip, you can opt for your costume jewelry, instead of running the risk of losing or getting your fine jewelry stolen. With a mix of fashion jewelry, you’ll have fun mixing & matching and effortlessly create a beautiful ensemble.

Can Look Better with Age

You don’t have to worry about your costume jewelry getting a faded shine or scratches on its surface primarily because of its affordable price. You can just buy another if it loses its lustre! But aside from affordability, you can let your costume jewelry look better and unique with age.  Some prefer retaining those scratches and patina from oxidation for more character and personalized feel.

Looks Like the Real Thing

Production of costume jewelry has advanced and continue to create high-quality and beautiful pieces. It is very hard to determine the difference of a costume jewelry from the real thing as these accessories possess that fine jewelry sparkling shine as well. Men and women now have the option to go with these pieces as alternatives.

 Allergic reactions are one of the most common problems when wearing costume jewelry because of the nickel that is used to create these pieces. Others tend to get skin irritations because of this. A way to prevent this is to go for “nickel-free” fashion jewelry.
