Costume Jewelry: An Easy Way to Wear a Big Trend

It's hard not to be inundated with pictures of what designer duds your favorite celebrity is wearing and who's got the biggest and blingiest jewelry at an awards show. But for the average girl, it's just not an option to actually go out and purchase a piece of jewelry that costs more than a car or a house. So instead, we turn to costume jewelry to fulfill our fantasy of getting decked out in diamonds. And at the end of the day, it all looks the same. So why not have fun with affordable gems that don't require a vault and a security guard? Here, we examine some of the glittering gems that won't break the bank:

Beautiful costume jewelry - Statement cocktail rings in colors that pop like canary yellow, royal purple and emerald green are a fun way to dress up for a night on the town. Giant oversize stones in a princess cut top the list of must haves. Stars like Angelina Jolie and 'Posh' Victoria Beckham have worn rings like these to add color to basic black. Now, you can afford to steal the look for a fraction of the cost.

Costume Jewelry: Pendant necklaces – If you love the look and the sparkle of the Hope diamond, or lust after one of the giant gems that Beyonce regularly wears on the red carpet, then look for an opulent imitation that will convey the same message. Enormous rhinestone pendant necklaces can easily be worn to a special event such as: prom, a wedding day or for a black-tie event to add sparkle and glamour to the overall look.

So, the next time you're aiming to make a fashion statement that won't soon be forgotten, consider adding costume jewelry like a statement cocktail ring or pendant necklace. The pieces should be over-the-top, exuberant and enjoyable to wear.
