Costume Jewellery

Jewellery designed for wear with current fashions and usually made of inexpensive materials. Usually applied to two classes of jewellery: gem-set imitations, which resemble precious jewellery but are made of silver (sometimes rhodium-coated) or pinchbeck and set with substitutes for gemstones, e.g. marcasite, paste or synthetic gemstones; although usually the stones are cemented, some are hand-set.
