The 11 Costume-Jewellery Brands We Swear By

We may not have the funds to wear giant diamonds, rubies, and emeralds — yet — but we do know a thing or two about faking it. We always rely on our favourite costume-jewellery brands to bring the bling without the hefty price tag. And, just because these baubles aren't fashioned of precious stones and platinum, doesn't mean they don't bring the wow factor.
Whether you're looking for earrings that look like they’ve come from an estate sale or heavy-metal necklaces with added attitude, these are the faux gems guaranteed to make every outfit sparkle.
