Why we love costume jewellery
Classic and elegant, costume jewellery can add flair to any outfit, smart or casual, at an affordable price. Vintage costume jewellery is a statement – and is a great way to express your individual style. It is also comforting to know that you are unlikely to find two identical, so there is not much chance of someone wearing the same as you.
1950s costume jewellery is different to its modern counterparts – it feels weighty and sturdy. Although costume jewellery has been mass produced since the early 20s, the earlier back you go, generally, the better the quality and more interesting the materials. You do not find the same robust materials or quality finishes in mass produced items today. Vintage items were made to last, and with one size fits all – make perfect gifts!
