Costume Jewellery


  1. It may seem a little ridiculous to think
    ,
    "no comma"
    that people deliberately buy
  2. anything artificial but that is most
    definately
    definitely
    true of costume jewellery
  3. from the 1930s, which now sells for vast sums of money and is
  4. increasingly popular in America
    ,
    Europe and Asia. The term 'costume
  5. jewellery' is relatively new but such jewellery has been around ever since
  6. people first started to
    decorrate
    decorate
    themselves with bones and shells. The
  7. Romans, in particular
    ,
    took delight in making fake jewels from glass and
  8. ceramics and combining them with
    preciuos
    precious
    stones and metal. The
  9. eighteenth century saw an
    improvment
    improvement
    with the arrival of hand-cut glass,
  10. now referred to as
    '
    paste'. This became so fashionable and sought after
  11. that it rivalled
    diamons
    diamonds
    in both demand and price. Good pieces of
  12. genuinely antique paste jewellery still sell for hundreds and sometimes
  13. even thousands
    '
    "no apostrophe"
    of pounds. The real revolution in costume jewellery is
  14. attributed to the
    french
    French
    designer Coco Chanel, who turned it away from pure
  15. immitation
    imitation
    of previous designs in favour of 'jewels' made to be valued
  16. in their own right. plastics were used
    ,
    "no comma"
    to produce shapes and colours
  17. never seen before, let alone worn, and they
    completly
    completely
    revolutionised the
  18. jewellery market. These plastic creations rapidly gained popularity and
  19. became easily
    affordible
    affordable
    , which naturally meant that fashions in jewellery
  20. changed ever more quickly.
