Fashion jewelry, also known as cheap jewelry and costume jewelry, is a low-cost alternative to expensive jewelry. Every woman wants a fine collection of bracelets, necklaces, pendants and ear-rings, and most have some exquisite pieces of genuine jewelry, but a wide collection of real gold and diamonds is not affordable for most.

This is where cheap jewelry comes into play. While it is true that, at the lower end of the market, much fashion jewelry is of low quality and is rightly called ‘junk jewelry’, it is also possible to get some beautiful cheap jewelry that can make you look rich and fashionable. These fashion jewelry (cheap jewelry) might not be pure gold, but will be gold plated, and will be much more affordable than luxurious jewelry.

Cheap jewelry originally became popular in the thirties when it was used as a low-cost fashion accessory for specific outfits. Cheap jewelry was an immediate hit and has been hugely popular ever since. Often, cheap jewelry is made from cheaper materials such as plastic, glass, base metals, and synthetic or non-precious stones. Although some of the more expensive cheap jewelry will use gold plating, semi-precious stones or something else, and the jewelry are still very cheap.

These cheap jewelry can even make people think they are the real luxury jewelry. Nowadays more and more people choose cheap jewelry for the sake of cheapness and cost-effectiveness. Now that cheap jewelry can function as luxuries and much cheaper, then people have no reason not to choose cheap jewelry.
