High Fashion In High Society
Costume jewellery has a long history of being desired by women of all ages, all social classes and all styles. The wearing of faux jewellery is an enduring trend that has long been part of the unique panache of fashionistas and style icons, often elevating them from being merely
fashion-conscious, to being the envied trendsetters of their generation. From the roaring 20s to the shining stars of the silver screen throughout the 40s, costume jewellery has long been a part of celebrity life. Over the years, these twinkling trinkets have found their way into the jewellery box of women of most social classes everywhere.
Some of the most remembered names in costume jewellery include both high and low priced brands, such as Dior, Chanel, Coro (CoroCraft), Monet, Napier, and Sarah Coventry. Perhaps the most notable high-society advocate of the ‘jewellery of the people’ was Coco Chanel, who was responsible for designing some of the most memorable pieces of faux jewellery. Further supporting this trend of high-designed, inexpensive jewellery was Kenneth Jay Lane. Among the famous wearers of his costume jewellery creations were also among the celebrity clique: Jackie Onassis, Elizabeth Taylor, Diana Vreeland and Audrey Hepburn. But the fashion of ‘fabulous fakes’, as costume jewellery is often referred to, does not end with the fashion sirens of yesteryear. Today’s biggest names on the red carpet are known for their penchant for costume jewellery, including Sarah Jessica Parker, Nicolette Sheridan, Madonna, and Demi Moore.
Today, high-end fashion jewellery has achieved a collectible, celebrated status with a large market for quality vintage and modern fashion jewellery. Adiva Divine is carefully and specifically designed to meet this deep-seated desire for costume jewellery.
