Fashion jewelry, unrestricted by the burden of the cost of precious metals and stones, allows jewelry for women to be substantial in size, with a broad depth of character. To be considered fashion jewelry, the materials used are mostly non-precious base metals like bronze and pewter as well as synthetic reproductions of real and natural stones like crystals and cubic zirconia. Handmade designer artisan jewelry is often presented as fashion jewelry and is a go-to category most appreciated for its affordability and artisan flair.
