When it comes to jewellery the materials that come to our minds are mostly silver, gold, platinum, diamond or pearl, etc. However the scenario is changed now and junk jewellery or artificial jewellery has become the trendsetter. There was a time when the middle or lower class yearned to have beautiful jewellery at an affordable price and that is when imitation jewelery came into their rescue.
Do you know what are the materials being used in artificial jewellery making?
Well you will be surprised to hear that they are made from simple metals, plastic, glass, and fake or artificial stone; sometimes precious gems and stones are used in case of valuable jewellery. Materials like leather, bone and horn, brass, beads, resin, terracotta, stainless steel, clay, shells, etc. are used. Isn’t this pretty amazing?

Doesn’t matter if you’re a middle-aged lady or a college going girl, artificial jewellery is available for a wide range of variety. These eye catching jewelleries are designed with exotic materials and innovative ideas. The beautifully glass cut jewellery, sterling silver pendants, or even shell jewellery are very popular these days. The artificially curated flower jewelleries are in great demand for wedding functions. Attractive cartoon designs and embossed letters are a craze among young girls.
