Antique and Vintage Costume Jewelry
Collectible costume jewelry from the 20th century, before 1980, but also with examples from the Victorian period and a few Regency and late Georgian examples. Costume jewelry typically uses toned metals in stead of precious metals and substitutes glass, paste and other composition in place of jewels. Some costume jewelry is comprised entirely of composite material such as bakelite. Renowned and prolific costume jewelry designers answered demand through the 20th century.
