Semi Precious Weapons - "Semi Precious Weapons"

Almost all of us have owned some costume jewelry at some point in our lives. Some of us have even recognized the terrific value it has in our accessories offering an affordable way to complete many outfits in many different styles. You simply cannot have enough pieces. But did you know there are three different types to choose from?

Semi Precious Gemstones

When we talk about semi precious gemstones we automatically think of fine jewelry. Semi precious stones aren't just found in the best pieces. Higher end costume jewelry, especially many of the vintage pieces, often used semi precious gemstones. While these gemstones would not be the "cream of the crop" they still are beautiful and offer an alternative in both price and style to the more traditional and expensive fine jewelry.

Onyx, Jasper, Quartz, Lapis, Agate, and Moonstone are often used.

Sterling Silver Jewelry

Sterling silver jewelry is sometimes called bridge jewelry because it fits nicely between fine and fashion jewelry. It is still considered part of the costume jewelry family. Sterling silver jewelry often incorporates semi precious gemstones like Jade, Tigers's Eye, Turquoise, Sunstone, and Azurite.

Fashion Jewelry

Fashion jewelry is made from that are cheaper yet still have either a gold or silver finish that gives them the same rich appearance we see from fine jewelry. These gold and silver plated metals often have glass stones although some of the higher end costume jewelry uses semi precious stones as we previously discussed.

Bakelite jewelry is still extremely important today and offers some unique styles, textures, and colors. Bakelite came about during the 1930's and pieces from the 30's and 40's are sought after so they can cost you a bit more.

Today's jewelry either fashion or costume is generally not of the quality of the older pieces, which were designed to last a lifetime. But there are far more styles and price points that you can choose from - disposable fashion jewelry designed to last only for a short period of time right through to the expensive pieces designed to last much longer.

Whether you need a piece of costume jewelry for your favorite pair of jeans or for that big party that's just around the corner. You can dress an outfit up or down with the right pieces and it doesn't have to cost a fortune.

That's what so great about costume jewelry. It's so affordable that almost everyone can have at least a few pieces. For anyone on a budget costume jewelry is a great way to accessorize. In fact, even those that aren't on a budget often turn to costume jewelry because of the terrific selection. Mix and match and create your own fashion style each and every time!
