History:
Costume jewelry was intimately connected to fashion, and found in early twentieth century Paris. Parisian couturiers, such as Coco Chanel and Elsa Schiaparelli, created or commissioned artistic jewelry to complement their fashions. The industry continued into the 1950's, in an era when an outfit was not complete without the appropriate necklace, lapel pin, bracelet, or earrings, therefore there was a huge demand. Throughout the 1950's, costume jewelry remained a vital part of fashion. Each company became known for its specific look, whether it was simulated pearls, tailored gold, whimsical aurora borealis rhinestones, or timeless clear rhinestones. This was the height of costume jewelry in America, and bombshells like Marilyn Monroe and Jayne Mansfield never went without in their films.
