After so much talk, there is another question coming! In addition to high-end jewelry, many fashion brands will also launch fashion jewelry, when these two appear at the same time, you must not mix it up! Many people who dont know about jewelry may have a vague concept of fashion jewelry and high-end jewelry launched by fashion brands. Although fashion jewelry is bold and bold, it is quite different from high-end jewelry in material, technology and price.
Fashion jewelry is very different from high-end jewelry
High grade jewelry uses precious stones
The most obvious difference between high-end jewelry and fashion jewelry is the material. The material of high-grade jewelry itself is an important part of its charm. Gemstones are carefully selected and precious varieties, such as diamonds, rubies, emeralds, etc., while metals are precious metals such as full gold, K-gold and platinum. Fashion jewelry such as Swarovski are made of copper / alloy, synthetic, artificial gemstone, plastic and even cloth for the sake of design.
Shafley, pearl, emerald
Exquisite craftsmanship is an important guarantee for the texture of high-grade jewelry, while fashion jewelry generally does not have strict requirements for workmanship. High quality jewelry from gem cutting to precision inlay are carried out with the highest standards, and are manually completed by experienced craftsman brand workshops, and many big brands have their own housekeeping skills.

After years of baptism, high-end jewelry is still shining, so we can see that big brands hold jewelry exhibitions and display countless works of the past 100 years at a time, while fashion jewelry is often eclipsed. High quality jewelry can be worn for a lifetime and even passed on to children. Fashion jewelry needs to be protected and maintained for a long time. However, it is often rejected when it is slightly tarnished. After all, fashion and fashion have their own life cycle.
High quality jewelry is expensive but more valuable
Fashion jewelry is not too distressing when you buy it. Its a blessing for friends who are eager for fashion and have insufficient budget. The price of high-end jewelry includes the painstaking efforts of design masters, the investment of countless craftsmen regardless of the construction period, and the precious gemstone of one in a hundred. The price is relatively higher. However, because of its absolute rarity, high-grade jewelry can always maintain its high value and even appreciate its value.
Fashion jewelry design more bold
It has to be said that the design of many fashion jewelry is very impractical. Due to the variety of materials, fashion jewelry may present more exaggerated, bold and interesting designs. After all, design is the soul of fashion jewelry. The design of high-end jewelry has a long construction period and a clear and rich theme. Fashion brands often pay more attention to the fit with the brand fashion when they launch fashion jewelry.
In the final analysis, fashion and jewelry are both artistic creation. Their essence is not separated, and the greater possibility is that they influence each other. The collocation of jewelry can make fashion more complete, and the integration of classic elements in fashion makes jewelry more possible beyond imagination.
