A little history

The ancient peoples provided themselves with shells, stones or flowers in order to make their accessories and thus be able to obtain magical powers. In ancient Egypt, apart from its decorative aspect, jewels had magical and religious functions both due to their shapes and the materials used.

In the Middle Ages, jewelery was reserved for religious and sovereigns as well as for merchants. These were then a symbol of authority.

Boom

Around 1700, jewelery is made with glass, which gave it a certain importance, but it was not until almost a century later, in 1800, that jewelery made of semi-precious materials entered the market.

In the middle of the 20th century, during the industrial revolution, it began to be manufactured with semi-precious materials, the use of them in manufacturing gave access to the mass of costume jewelery.

Today it is recognized as an art.

Materials

For the elaboration of objects, costume jewelery uses various materials, such as porcelain, brass wires, paper pulp, cultured pearls, etc.

Objects made of metals or their alloys usually have a coating of noble material, such as gold, silver, or rhodium. Depending on the quality of the coating, a fine jewelery ornament of this type can become practically indistinguishable from a jewel, logically, to a non-expert person.

Precious metals are usually very dense and therefore the small pieces that are made with them are quite heavy for their size. A good substitute, at least in terms of density, is usually lead alloys.

Handmade jewelery

Handmade jewelry is one that is made totally or partially by hand.
