The popularity of rhinestone costume jewelry took off in the 1920s, and these beautiful and affordable creations came in every color and style imaginable. Big, bold, sparkling pieces of costume jewelry are not only a joy to wear, they are avidly gathered and worn by collectors. Super sized, dazzling “faux” jewels created quite a stir, from the early 18th century paste stones and on. The first “pretenders” were high lead crystals invented by jeweler Strass. Once the industrial revolution began, manufacturers started producing jewelry for those who did not have a royal pocketbook, but still had the desire to wear a pretty sparkly piece brooch or bracelet. Gold plating, pinchbeck, was developed, and Daniel Swarovski’s foil backed stones, which he patented in the late 1800’s, meant high quality costume jewelry became all the rage.
This magical gaudy witch is huge measuring almost 3 inches tall. If you love tacky halloween stuff as much as I do this witch is for you!
You will receive 1 bedazzled witch covered in tons of sparkly rhinestones. <3
