Vintage Costume Jewelry
Costume jewelry came into being in the 1930s as a cheap, disposable accessory meant to be worn with a specific outfit, but not meant to be handed sown through generations.
Costume jewelry also existed prior to the 1930s. Paste or glass jewelry dated as far back as the 1700s. The rich had their fine jewelry duplicated for a variety of reasons, using paste or glass stones.
By the mid 1800s, with the growth of the middle class, there were now different levels of jewelry being manufactured using fine, semi-precious and base materials. Fine jewelry of gold, diamonds, fine gems such as emeralds and sapphires continued to be made.
Jewelry from rolled gold, which is a thin layer of gold attached to a base metal, entered the market for the middle class. This jewelry was often set with semi-precious gems such as amethyst, coral or pearls, and was much more affordable.
And there was jewelry that most anyone could afford, consisting of glass stones and base metals made to look like gold. All three types were intended to be passed down to future generations.
There are usually clues that can help one identify what era a piece of jewelry is from- style, material, and the type of piece. For example, dress clips came in during the 1930s and were out of style by the 1950s.
Jewelry reflects styles, designs, colors and stones of an era. For example, from 1910 to 1930 silver was the favorite color for metal, so jewelry was found in platinum, white gold, silver, or a base metal color to look like silver. By World War II, gold was popular again but in short supply, since it was vital to the war effort. The gold that was available was made into very thin sheets and usually bonded to silver (called vermeil) before being turned into jewelry.
By the mid 1930s rhinestone’s popularity was ever increasing in Europe. It was not available to the Americans until the 1940s.
Costume jewelry styles of past years are now become very fashionable, and many are being reproduced. Even among costume jewelry there is a difference in quality. Many of the new pieces do not have the vibrancy in the stones or the weight of the older pieces.
No longer is costume jewelry simply “collectible.” It is “in style,” and “fashionable,” and a terrific conversation starter.
Many similar pieces are available at local antique stores such as Mayfair Antiques and Salzburg Square.
Unravelling: Favourite Things - Wishbone
I wear these wishbone rings most of the time, and they are very important to me. The plain silver one was only a cheap ring from a stall but it was given to me by my dad who is no longer with us, so it is really precious. The other one is white gold with little diamonds and was given to me on my 18th by my godmother. Both mean an awful lot to me and I love how they fit together perfectly.
