Introducing a precious collection of costume jewelry brands that colored the era.

This definitive edition includes the history of costume jewelry that began with Coco Chanel, explanations of materials, how to make, maintenance, and more, in addition to the masterpieces of various eras.

Costume jewelry, distinguished from jewelry made with expensive materials like precious metals, gold, platinum, and gemstones, focuses on fashion and has continuously created pieces reflecting the trends and social atmosphere of the times.

Due to its even higher fluidity than fashion trends, many pieces have vanished shortly after their creation.

This book introduces over 60 valuable collections of costume jewelry brands along with their background, as well as basic knowledge about the history and episodes of costume jewelry, how to wear it, maintenance methods, and basic techniques for enjoying handmade jewelry.

It can be considered a reference book for both costume jewelry collectors and jewelry makers.
