Every now and again, Holts gets a rather exciting client. Our stones have featured in block-buster films, our cutting equipment has taken centre stage in theatre productions, and we’ve even cut gems for Royalty.

1920s America: a time of extravagant decadence and luxury living. I’m thinking New York, Gershwin, penthouses and white fox fur coats. It was a decade when fortunes were made, wild parties were thrown, and Art Deco glamour, dazzling with diamonds and platinum, shone. So far, so very Great Gatsby. So what’s all this talk of plastic jewellery, pot metal, faux pearls and rhinestones? Putting all things precious to one side for today’s blog, I’m going to be looking at the cheaper side of the twenties. Because it was during this time of plenty that Costume Jewellery, in all its bling-tastic glory, exploded onto the scene.
