In the middle of the 20th century, the jewelry industry experienced a real boom. The Second World War, which consumed the reserves of metals, was over. The companies for the production of costume jewelry appeared one after another. However, due to the great competition, many companies quickly ceased to exist, and the short period of their existence is the main reason for their little-knownness.
Another boom in costume jewelry took place in the 1980s, when even perfume manufacturers made costume jewelry to advertise their perfume. All fashion houses, especially European ones, produced costume jewelry which became the queen of the catwalks. Among trendsetters who have shattered all snobbery about costume jewelry was Coco Chanel. According to her, stylish people wear bijoux and everyone else has to wear gold.
Undoubtedly, quality vintage jewelry, which has stood the test of time and the price of which increases every year, can be inherited.
Noteworthy, it is not safe to wear precious stones, as they have a strong energy and can even harm their owners. Especially large stones. They can affect both health and destiny. That’s why even the rich and famous, from Hollywood stars to royals, understanding this intuitively, prefer bijoux to fine jewelry.
