Right from the stone-age women have pampered themselves in jewelry. Women are known to have constantly created different ways to look more beautiful. They used to design, stitch and create their own clothes just to stand out from others. When clothes became mundane, they invented ornaments. They use to add glamour with these ornaments to even the simplest of clothes they wore. Before the discovery of precious metals like gold, silver, copper or bronze etc. women used sea-shells, conches and other fine stones and materials to create their jewelry.
Earlier costume jewelry was all about semi-precious stones, artificial metals coated with gold and silver polish and other chunks of mirror, stone or patch-works, shells or colorful threads, etc. these jewelries were designed keeping in mind the middle class and poor women and girls who could not afford to spend much on jewelries and those women who liked to wear jewelries properly coordinated with their clothes. Gradually costume jewelery became very popular among women of all walks of life.
Armed with creativity and imagination jewelers have come up with innumerable designs and countless new types of metals and stones to give variety. Costume jewelries now are the amalgamation of traditional stones, precious metals etc. in a modern form. Today’s costume jewelry is a perfect modernized blend of fashion, glamour and tradition. Costume jewelry is just the right thing for every woman for any occasion. It saves money also and gives reason to beautify as well as adding radiant confidence to the wearer.
