A lot of our customers are very interested in costume and fashion jewellery yet they do not entirely know what the difference is between fashion jewellery and costume jewellery so we thought we’d write a little blog on this.

Costume jewellery is defined as jewelry that is made from inexpensive metals and imitation or semiprecious stones. Costume jewelry is not made from gold, silver, cultured pearls. However Swarovski Crystal jewlery is classed as costume jewelry. Fashion jewellery on the other hand is jewellery that is following a current trend. That is, what trends have been passed from the catwalks to the high street.

Whatever you decide to wear cocktail rings, crystal bracelets or crystal earrings when it comes to fashion and costume jewellery, wear it with style, and wear what feels comfortable on you and you are sure to dazzle all around you!

This gorgeous piece of hair jewellery is normally worn on very special occasions like your wedding day or if you are a bridesmaid at a wedding.

As far as Asian fashion jewellery goes the bigger the better! And also the more colourful the better. Indian costume jewellery is fabulous to wear on any occasion but on an Indian wedding day costume jewellery can’t be any more fabulous!

Costume jewellery doesn’t come as flamboyant, colourful and sparkly as when you see it in an Asian Wedding. Asian bridal jewellery can be very similar but also very different to English wedding jewellery, and when it comes to hair accessories this is so much more the case.

Hair tikkas are a piece of hair jewellery that brides and also guest at an Asian wedding wear on their head. Hair tikkas are a beautiful jewelled piece of costume jewellery, which has a hook at one end. This hook is fastened onto the middle of your head at the top (as if it’s following a middle parting) and dangles down onto the middle of your forehead

So if you are ever lucky enough to be invited to an Asian wedding buy yourself a beautiful hair accessory called a hair tikka to make yourself look authentically Asian!
