A Brief History of Costume Jewelry
Jewelry has taken an interesting road to get to where it is today. It was actually one of the earliest forms of handicraft. And that’s something we associate with average folks. However, not everyone had the wherewithal or the access to resources to make jewelry, which meant it was also extremely rare and was almost never seen outside castles and palaces. In time, however, the jewelry path split in two. Some jewelers embraced more affordable and easily accessible materials. While others went all-in on ever greater refinement along with diamonds and other precious materials that were simply out of the financial reach of the average person.
In the early 18th century a man named Georges Frederic Strass produced the first convincing imitation diamonds and true costume jewelry was born. A century and a half later Daniel Swarovski produced the first convincing artificial rubies, emeralds and other semi-precious stones. He also pioneered a glass-cutting machine that could produce these faux stones quickly and cheaply.
By the early 20th century costume jewelry seemed poised to take off. However, it still suffered a certain social stigma that went something like this: “Only those with no taste and no money wear costume jewelry.” Turns out it took a true high-fashion luminary to bring costume jewelry into the fashion fold and provide it the mainstream acceptance it so richly deserved. That luminary was none other than Coco Chanel. She produced and marketed a line of fashion jewelry that embraced forms and materials that had never been thought appropriate to haute couture. In doing so she opened the door for costume jewelry creators everywhere to market their creations to an eager audience.
Today, whether you call it costume jewelry or fashion jewelry this type of unpretentious accessory is here to stay. Wholesale costume jewelry from Paykoc reflects the beauty, care and imagination that goes into the best of today’s costume jewelry creations. It’s the kind of evocative everyday accessory that turns heads and always presents the wearer in a flattering light.
What is Zamak Jewelry?
During discussions of wholesale jewelry you’ll often here the term ‘zamak jewelry’. But what exactly does ‘zamak’ mean? Is it a country in central Asia? A type of semi-precious stone? Actually it’s neither. It’s a metal alloy. The name is an acronym for ‘zinc, aluminum, magnesium and copper’. (Which, of course, means it should be ‘zamac’. But we won’t quibble.) Zamak is known for its hardness and durability, which make it an ideal material for costume jewelry. Many of the necklaces, brackets, earrings and other pieces we feature at Paykoc are fashioned from zamak.
Zamak is also known for its hypoallergenic properties. This is a result of the intense purity of the alloy. Unlike solid nickel, copper, chromium and other metals the zamak alloy will almost never cause an allergic reaction or irritate the skin. This makes it a great choice for those who love fashion jewelry but are wary of it because of their sensitive skin.
