MORE INFORMATION BELOW:

The costume jewellery industry flourished in the 1980s, and women experienced a new freedom and confidence to wear frankly fake fashion jewellery. In fact, the bigger and glitzier the better!

After languishing somewhat during the 1970s plastic jewellery again became fashionable in the 80s. The plastics used for jewellery and hair ornaments in the 1980s were not only smooth but textured as well. Stripes, polka dots and geometric patterns were popular. All the colours of the rainbow were employed to create a dazzling effect.

The fashion hallmarks of the decade were big shoulders, big hair and co-ordinating costume jewellery. Hair was teased and ratted out, and this ‘big’ hair cried out to be balanced by glitzy jewellery in gilt settings with huge fake looking stones. Hair accessories of the period were certainly neither small nor delicate!
