Trend... Costume Jewelry
With the cost of gold and silver skyrocketing, it's clear why consumers are gravitating toward jewelry that is on -trend yet lacks a hefty price tag. Costume jewelry has become the entry-level price point for many of Europe's luxury houses, and in troubling times allows consumers a guilt-free way to tone up their wardrobe. Much like carrying the "it" bag you can tell when someone is wearing a YSL or Lanvin necklace. Costume jewelry now has brand awareness, which has made stores like Bergdorf Goodman and Barneys to increase there buys of this category.
On the runway and at retail, brands such as Balenciaga and Lanvin are taking major steps into the category, and along with smaller brands are establishing oversize statement pieces as a seasonal trend.
With their eye-popping colors and vintage vibe, the latest costume jewelry offerings look as if they are one of kind pieces. From wood and feather-festooned earrings to necklaces of chiffon rosettes to silver cocktail rings bedecked with teeny-tiny plastic platters of fruit. This past month WWD highlighted the importance of costume jewelry signifying that it is a trend that has become a staple in the fashion world. In today's shaky economy and tarts, the new costume pieces being snapped up by retailers have a fresh whimsy, and usually occupy a more affordable niche in the ever-expanding jewelry market.
