They are also a great way to get in on the trends without breaking the bank. In fact, costume jewelry started coming into its own in the twenties and thirties. Before that, jewelry was largely seen as an investment or a status symbol for the affluent.
In the early twentieth century, jewelry began to be viewed as an art form. Wearing it was a form of self-expression and individualism.
Inexpensive costume jewelry necklaces, earrings, bracelets, and pins were marketed as accessories for a specific “costume,” or outfit. These sets were seen as almost disposable, easy to do away with after the trend died down or the outfit didn’t fit anymore.
Today, costume jewelry ranges from extremely cheap baubles to high-end materials and designers. The majority of the ordinary woman’s jewelry for daily wear is made up of costume jewelry pieces. This is practical for two main reasons.
Costume jewelry is cost effective for the budget conscious modern woman. Today’s woman is very active. During everyday activities, if she loses a piece of inexpensive costume jewelry, it is not the end of the world.

For example, all types of silver are likely to become tarnished over time whether they are 0.99-pure silver or 0.925, which is sterling silver. As such, you must use anti-tarnishing strips as well as a cleaning solution to keep your silver gleaming for many years to come. When it comes to keeping high quality jewelry to wear and use, you really need to put a lot of consideration into jewelry care and cleaning.
The cleaning and care of your jewelry absolutely cannot be an afterthought, because sometimes the tarnishing and dirtying of your jewelry cannot be undone, and so preventative measures must be taken ahead of time rather than after the fact. It is vitally important that you take care of your jewelry from the moment that you buy or receive it so that you can keep it in good condition from day one until the end of your years. Precious metal jewelry can tarnish, and this is simply part of life.
Silver is especially easily tarnished over time unless you use anti-tarnish strips as part of your jewelry care and cleaning process. These strips will prevent a lot of the normal tarnishing wear and tear that your jewelry will experience, especially when you are storing it. You should make sure not to let your jewelry get too wet, otherwise some rust can appear, which can be difficult if not impossible for you to remove. This is another important consideration when it comes to the care and keeping of your jewelry.
There are other jewelry care and cleaning considerations for you to make. For example, you need to make sure that you are using the right cleaner when it comes to your jewelry. The wrong cleaning tools or cleaning solution can cause harm to your jewelry, rendering your care and keeping routine completely useless. Talk to the jewelry store or another specialist in jewelry care to make sure that you are taking the right steps to take care of and protect your jewelry so that you can pass it down to your children and grandchildren in the future.
