In the simplest definition, vintage costume jewelry is jewelry not made from precious metals or stones but resembles high end jewelry designs.

To me, vintage costume jewelry are just as beautiful as their more expensive siblings. I personally prefer to wear costume jewelry over the real stuff. Giant cocktail rings, bead cluster earrings, enamel painted brooches...YES PLEASE!

Popular 'Vintage Costume Jewelry' labels/designers:
Coro, Avon, Trifari, Monet, Napier, Miriam Haskell, Lisner, Le Bernard, Kenneth J. Lane, Kramer, and Schiaperelli.

I have carried these designers at Adore Vintage at one point or another along with many unsigned pieces and lesser known designers.
