If you’re looking for someone to sell your vintage costume jewelry, give us a call! We buy old costume jewelry all the time! (We also buy gold and sterling silver jewelry, too!)
Costume jewelry, sometimes called trinkets, fashion jewelry, junk jewelry, fake jewelry, or fallalery is jewelry manufactured as ornamentation to complement a particular fashionable style or garment as opposed to “real” (fine) jewelry which may be regarded primarily as collectibles, keepsakes, or investments.
Originally, costume or fashion jewelry was made of inexpensive simulated gemstones, such as rhinestones or lucite, set in pewter, silver, nickel, or brass. During the depression years, rhinestones were even down-graded by some manufacturers to meet the cost of production.
