Difference between Fashion Jewelry & Costume Jewelry

If you are a person, who is looking to know the difference between fashion jewelry and costume jewelry, you are in the right place. I would like to discuss about this topic as many people are asking the same question over and over again. Costume jewelry is known as the earliest type of jewelry items, which was produced as an adornment for the common people. During the ancient time, for complimenting a particular costume, people where using costume jewelry. This practice basically started during the nineteen century. As this jewelry is made by using non reusable and cheap materials, it was basically purchased by the people to wear only with some specific outfit.

The main purpose of the costume jewelry was to use it only for a short span of time as they were made by using low quality products. Most of the ladies during ancient times had the collection of various costume jewelry depending on the outfits they wear. They were also using this jewelry as a trend. However, costume jewelries are not as expensive as the other original jewelry products. Read more of this post

Accessorizing Your Favorite LBD (Little Black Dress)!

The wonderful thing about the little black dress is that it doesn’t draw attention to itself and looks like a different dress on each person.

Divide your little black dresses into two categories; those that have their own focal point, like an intricate neckline, sleeves,or  bead work, and the plain and simple ones. Dresses with their own focal points need very little accessorizing. A dash of color for the daytime or a hint of sparkle with jewelry for the nights are all that you need to get going.

Bijou Trésor has our finger on the pulse of the fashion world, so it should come as no surprise that we find rising talents like Clara Kasavina.

Born in the Ukraine, Kasavina met her future husband, Misha Berger, when they were children and would later meet him again when they had both moved to the United States.
