Welcome to Collecting Costume Jewelry
This site is dedicated to my sister, Susan Klein, who discovered the joys of costume jewelry late in her short life.
The Collecting Costume Jewelry site presents information on the costume jewelry industry during the early part of the 20th century on through the 1980's. This site is about sparkling rhinestones, crystals, beads and glitz. This site will not currently look at Victorian, Edwardian, Art Nouveau, Silver or Cameo jewelry. This is not for any special reason other than, I like rhinestone jewelry.
There is information about the designers, how jewelry is made, how to care for and store your jewelry. Where to do research on the Internet and in books. How to determine the value of your pieces. Some practical tips. Plus a tool kit for cleaning, repairing and shopping.
This site is a work in progress. If a page is blank or does not exist, please check back later.
All the pictures on this site were taken by me of jewelry I owned. Some pieces have moved on to new owners and others are in my collection. Have fun!
