Costume jewellery was very fashionable in the 1950s in particular, when film stars gave it credibility.
Austrian crystal necklaces and brooches were very popular in the 1950s and 1960s, with the most famous name of all being that of Swarovski. Glass beads and imitation moonstones were also mixed with crystal beads to create interesting combinations. Today these older crystal pieces are perfect for that vintage look dress, that needs something a little bit different to bring the outfit together for a special occasion.
Please note I have no vested interest in Glitterbug - But I do think the stock is very varied and interesting of its type as the range of pictures on these two costume jewellery pages show and I hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I do.
