A little bit of history… on custom jewelry.

Custom jewelry would today most likely not be called “custom jewelry” at all. More likely “outfit jewelry”, as it refers to the old term for what one wears. These pompous and decorative rings, earrings, bracelets and necklaces were originally manufactured as ornamentation to complement a particular fashionable costume or garment. Originally, costume or fashion jewelry was made of inexpensive simulated gemstones and inexpensive glass and incorporate a wide range of materials such as simulates diamonds, semi-precious stones and metals like brass, pewter and nickel.
The golden era for the costume jewelry began in the middle of the 20th century when the new middle class wanted beautiful, but affordable, jewelry. The industrial revolution made the production of replicas of admired and expensive heirloom possible and designers and artists such as Chanel, Dior and Monet made custom jewelry fashionable and wanted. In many instances, high-end fashion jewelry has achieved a “collectible” status, and increases in value over time.
