During costume jewelry’s surge of popularity in the 1920s, crystals became an integral part of countless designs. In particular, the crystals made by Czechoslovakian designer Daniel Swarovski were prominent on necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and brooches. Today, Swarovski stones still adorn many of the best pieces of costume jewelry.

Clear crystal rhinestones were used by a number of costume-jewelry designers to replicate the sparkle of diamonds, but some costume jewelers used masses of crystals in place of glass beads to make their fashion fantasies shimmer and shine. Among the designers who excelled with crystals were Eisenberg & Sons, Juliana, and Miriam Haskell.
