Costume jewelry is produced from inexpensive materials and is also known as fashion jewelry, trinkets, imitation jewelry, fake jewelry, and junk jewelry. It is primarily produced from inexpensive materials such as metals, beads, synthetic stones, glass, ivory, plastic, and colored stone jewelry. Pins, backings, and fabricated metals are some of the other raw materials used to produce costume jewelry. They are inexpensive compared to jewelry made up of precious materials such as gold and silver. They are mainly worn as a fashion statement as it enhances the appearance of the person. They involve low-maintenance costs and can be carried safely anywhere. Bracelets and bangles, earrings and finger rings, necklaces and pendants, and anklets &toe rings are some of the types of costume jewelry.
