Fashion jewellery refers to any ornamental items designed to adorn clothes and their wearers. Fashion jewellery is the modern version of traditional ornamental items that were worn mainly for decoration by the elite classes. Today, fashion jewellery is a common feature in most people’s wardrobes. Fashion jewellery can be anything from earrings to necklaces, bangles, bracelets, finger rings and toe rings.
Modern-day fashion jewellery is usually made using the same production techniques as traditional fine jewellery but with modern equipment. The materials are often chosen based on the cost and availability.
Many modern metals are available in various designs, including cubic zirconium (CZ’s), titanium, and stainless steel. In addition, precious metals such as gold, silver and platinum are increasingly used in modern jewellery because they are highly valued as an investment opportunity.
Many of today’s fashion jewellers are using innovative production techniques to create real jewellery that reflects individual creative stylings and personal aesthetic preferences. Some of these methods include creating real gemstones of different sizes and colours. Cubic zirconia stones can be found in colours ranging from light blue to deep red and brown, which look great in bracelets, earrings, rings, pendants, hair accessories and watches.
It has been suggested that costume jewellery is the future of fashion because it provides an alternative for women who no longer want to conform to ‘formal’ styles. Fashion jewellery incorporates real gemstones into its designs, and these often include sapphires, rubies, diamonds and emeralds.
Many modern-day metals and alloys are being used to manufacture this type of jewellery. Traditional costume jewellery usually consists of metals that are plain looking. They are not manufactured using precious metals. They are typically created from silver-plated and gold-plated items.
Apart from the different types of gemstones and precious metals, fine jewellery also tends to feature other materials such as wood, bone and other organic materials. These types of materials can be used to create interesting combinations.
This allows the fashion jewellery to complement other types of items in your wardrobe. This is particularly useful when purchasing jewellery that has a more ornate design than standard metallic items.
How You Can Wear Jewellery
As with fashion, costume jewellery can be worn in a variety of different ways. One of the most popular ways to wear fashion jewellery is to wear it on a particular outfit. The shimmering beauty of a diamond necklace or other piece of sparkling fashion jewellery will instantly draw the eye of whoever is noticing you. The same effect can be achieved with silver or gold pendants.
Fashion jewellery can be used in conjunction with your outfit to create a look that is complementary to your particular outfit. For example, you may wear earrings and match or contrast their color to the color of your outfit and make a fashion statement. If you decide to wear stud earrings, you may choose to wear a bold bracelet, as well as it will give the appearance that you have added a number of jewellery items to your already outstanding ensemble.
