Costume jewelry is all the rage nowadays ever since it has quickly matched original jewelry in appearance and quality. You can find anything to suit your budget and achieve the look you want.
If you are looking for understated elegance, you may go for necklaces, earrings and bracelets made of synthetic pearls. Good quality pieces look like the real thing and need an expert to tell them apart. Pearls look great with spring and summer fashion, or with lovely strapless gowns to accentuate the shoulders and neck.
Silver is a good choice especially if the wearer is allergic to other metals such as nickel or copper which are commonly found on costume jewelry. Sterling silver is very good quality and you can find lovely pieces if you feel that the color suits you more than gold, or simply if your budget does not stretch that far.
Diamante stones are imitation diamonds which can sparkle like the real deal for a fraction of the price. They are also a very good choice for attending weddings or special occasions. Choose from rings, necklaces, ties, earrings, brooches and more. A new trend is to wear diamante bra straps with an evening dress or gown.
Beads can be any size or color and made of glass, plastic, wood, gemstones and other materials. You can combine necklaces of different bead sizes for a fun effect. Because of the variety if materials, you can find bead necklaces and bracelets to suit your budget.
Shells and Gems
Wearing shells around your neck or on your arm has a taste of the exotic and brings back memories of summer vacation. Wearing shells is also a nice idea if you like the natural look or if you love natural materials against your skin. You should be able to find a variety of sizes, colors and shapes to suit any outfits.
Gem jewelry can look great in rings and necklaces if you like to wear stones but cannot afford real rubies, emeralds or sapphires. You will find any size or color you wish set in lovely creative pieces the color of gold or silver. Alternatively the gems may be set in stainless steel, a material which is gaining huge popularity in the costume jewelry world.
Caring for your pieces will make them last longer. Typically you should avoid soaking your jewelry, and store it somewhere away from humidity and air which will make the pieces deteriorate.
