Costume jewelry, a type of jewelry, is made of inexpensive materials compared to precious materials such as diamond, gold, platinum, and others such as gems and pearls. Costume jewelry is also known as fake jewelry, fashion jewelry, trinkets, imitation jewelry, and junk jewelry. It is manufactured using raw materials such as beads, metals, glass, synthetic stones, ivory, plastic, semi-precious stones, and others. Other raw materials used in manufacturing of costume jewelry are backings, pins, and fabricated metals. Pearls and semi-precious metals such as brass, silver, and aluminum, are also used in manufacturing of costume jewelry. Costume jewelry is popular particularly among women, corporate employees, and teenagers.
Fluctuating price of gold and rise in price of gold, diamond, and other precious materials are the key drivers of the costume jewelry market. Costume jewelry is cheaper than jewelry made of gold or other precious materials. Rise in fashion consciousness, adoption of western culture, and increase in disposable income of people are expected to drive the global costume jewelry market during the forecast period. Moreover, availability of trendy, colored stone jewelry and various types of costume jewelry at low price is anticipated to boost the demand for costume jewelry across the world in the next few years. Costume jewelry involves low maintenance cost and can be safely carried, which is not the case with real jewelry. These factors are expected to propel the growth of the market in the near future.

However, growing security concerns, particularly at airports, and rise in concerns associated with trade laws and imports and exports are expected to hamper the growth of global costume jewelry market. In addition, rise in prices of raw materials, owing to unorganized supply chain management, is anticipated to restrain the growth of the market during the forecast period. Nevertheless, costume jewelry, owing to its low cost of manufacturing, is likely to generate significant opportunities for the market players in the next few years.
