Is Costume Jewellery Even Better Than The Real Thing?

July 2nd, 2014

Writer Judith Miller discusses this interesting question.

“…(underpinning) this upsurge in popularity of both collecting and wearing vintage costume jewellery is a growing appreciation that you can buy into exceptional craftsmanship and very stylish, often highly innovative design for substantially less than you can with precious jewellery. In fact, I’ll go out on a bit of a limb here and suggest that more often than not you find far more interesting designs in costume jewellery than you do with the precious equivalent.”
