First thing that you would like to know is that what is Costume Jewelry? Costume jewelry (also called fashion jewelry, junk jewelry, or fallalery) is jewelry that is made of less valuable materials including base metals, glass, plastic, and synthetic stones, in place of more valuable materials such as precious metals and gems. Costume jewelry is usually inexpensive, and often flashy.
Costume Jewelry can be these things but right costume jewelry can be a lots of fun. Infact the most attractive costume jewelry set can also be the lowest price you pay for it. In comparison to silver and gold jewelry you need to pay a lot less money for something that looks great. If your budget is less or you prefer change in your look then costume jewelry is the best option you can opt .
Just as the style of clothes change, the kind of Jewelry trend also change. The best part about the costume jewelry set is that you can easily change or add to your collection the latest trends that come in. It might be possible that the jewelry your mother wore , would be different from what you would wear today, or it might be back in fashion.
If buying of costly jewelry is not appealing to you then you can go for costume jewelry and have fun with a costume jewelry set that fits in what is hot right now. Good costume jewelry will give you the same look as the other jewelry will give. You can even embrace kitsch and look for a tacky costume jewelry set to wear with your outfits.
If you go looking you can probably find copies of expensive jewelry at a reasonable price. Good copies are great to wear for formal occasions if you have spent a lot of money on your clothes and other accessories and can’t afford to spend on jewelry.
A tasteful costume jewelry set can be used as a wedding jewelry set if you find yourself on a really tight budget. Pearls are one of those things that you can easily get away with. No one will be the wiser if you can find a good string of pearls that can pass for the real deal.
Everyone loves a great vintage piece now and then. The only problem is that finding a vintage piece that is in good condition is hard to do. When you do find a genuine piece it’s often too expensive. Many costume jewelry sets are vintage inspired and perfectly capture the look you want.
Some costume jewelry sets are even made to look slightly weathered to look even more authentic. So if you would like to have that little touch of vintage glamour then opt for fun costume jewelry sets.

- Guest 8 years agoI think that artificial (or costume) jewellery look just like the real thing and unless you’re an expert then it's really hard to tell the difference. I only buy costume jewellery these days as the real stuff is so expensive. Mostly I shop on [Ebay] ( http://www.ebay.co.uk)for my costume jewellery, but there are many online retailers which offer great value.
