My first encounter with Costume Jewellery was a broach my Grandmother gave my Mum. I was absolutely mesmerized by it. I'm not sure if it was the sparkles or the colours. Anyways I have been hooked ever since.
Lets face it most people buy Costume Jewellery because for the most part it was affordable. However these days some Costume Jewellery is at the higher end of the affordability market. Costume Jewellery is made of more affordable materials and for those of us who love wearing jewellery offers the opportunity of variety. In other words you can have loads and loads of different kinds of accessories without it costing an arm and a leg.
Its easy to take care of costume jewellery though many do not know how. I always advise people to use the silica gel packets or even a zip lock bag. Im not sure if anyone listens, but I always give the advice.
Anywho I am an advocate of Costume Jewellery and will continue to look for unique and colourful pieces for my own personal collection and also for Curvaceous World.
Have a great day.
