Learn More About Costume Jewelry


Costume Jewelry is a kind of personal adornment, manifesting itself as brooches, rings, necklaces, earrings, and bracelets. Costume jewelry may be made from any sort of material, and usually gemstones, non precious metals, beads, or shells. Factors which affecting the choices of materials include cultural differences and the availability of the materials. Costume jewelry may be appreciated because of its availability of material properties, its pattern designs, or for some particular meaningful symbols. Costume jewelry differs from other items of fine jewelry in that it has no other purpose than to look appealing. Items such as belts and handbags are considered to be fashion accessories rather than jewelry.
The word costume jewelry can be tracing leads back to the Latin word "jocale", meaning plaything. Costume jewelry is one of the oldest forms of body adornment; recently-found 100,000-year-old beads made from Nassarius shells are thought to be the oldest known costume jewelry.
Costume jewelry is sometimes served as a way of showing fashionable and might also possess some minimal functionality, such as decorate your outfit or keeping hair in place. It has from ancient been regarded as a form of personal adornment. The first pieces of costume jewelry were made from natural materials, such as bone, animal teeth, shell, wood and carved stone. Some costume jewelry throughout the ages may have specifically been as an indication of a social group. More exotic jewelry is often for the wealthier group, with its rarity increasing its value. Due to its personality and its indication of social class, different cultures established traditions differences of burying the dead with their jewelry.
Costume jewelry has been made to adorn nearly every body part, from hairpins to toe rings and many other more forms of jewelry. While traditional jewelry is usually made with precious gemstones and metals, such as silver or gold, there is also a growing demand for art jewelry where design and creativity is prized more than material value. Therefore, the less costly costume jewelry, made from lower value materials and often in mass-production.
Costume jewelry has been used for a number of reasons:
•    Functional use (such as clasps, pins and buckles)
•    Symbolism (to show membership or status)
•    Protection (in the form of amulets and magical wards),
•    Fashion display (a kind of accessories to match the outfit)
Many items of costume jewelry, such as brooches, hair clips and buckles, originated as purely functional items, but evolved into decorative items as their functional requirement diminished. It can also be symbolic of group membership.
Wearing of amulets and devotional medals to provide protection or ward off evil is common in some cultures; these may take the form of symbols (such as the ankh), stones, plants, animals, body parts (such as the Khamsa), or glyphs (such as stylized versions of the Throne Verse in Islamic art).
Although artistic display has clearly been a function of costume jewelry from the very beginning, the other roles described above tended to take primacy. It was only in the late 19th century, with the work of such masters as Peter Carl Fabergé and René Lalique that art began to take primacy over function and fashion and this trend has continued into modern times.
