A lot of our customers are very interested in costume jewelry and fashion jewelry 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 jewelry is defined as jewelry that is made from inexpensive metals and imitation or semiprecious stones. Fashion jewelry on the other hand is jewelry that is following a current trend. This can range from wooden cuff bracelets, beaded necklaces or large statement cocktail rings.

The best example of costume jewellery is what you see on the Shefaly | House of Jewels website. They provide a range of costume jewelry from necklaces, earrings, cocktail rings and bracelets to cufflinks for men and women.

Whatever you decide to wear when it comes to fashion jewelry and costume jewelry, wear it with style, and wear what feels comfortable on you and you are sure to dazzle all around you!

Ladies cufflinks

Cufflinks are not only worn by men nowadays, women love wearing cufflinks to whether they are crystal cufflinks or plain cufflinks. Ladies cufflinks are also worn on double cuff shirts, and look stunning.

As a gift, ladies cufflinks are a great choice, even for those women who have never worn cufflinks before as this gives them an excuse to try something new. The best type of cufflinks are the crystal cufflinks as they not only look more expensive than they really are, but they can really look great as an accessory. Also you can buy matching cocktail rings and bracelets or earrings to the cufflinks to really help finish the look off.

Our crystal cuff links come in different colours and styles to reflect the type of person you are buying for. And our crystal cufflinks are unisex so you both can wear them!
